I first met Katy back in 2005, when she was an existing client at a livery yard/ riding school that I was lucky enough to be part of. I had the opportunity to what Katy work with some of the horses there, and saw the enjoyment and pleasure that each equine showed. How the horses were so calm in Katy’s presence, and how she worked with each individuals needs. I soon had her work on my own horses, and most definitely started to spread the word to anyone in need of a fantastic and caring and friendly, sports therapist. Katy and Positive Effects gets my vote every time.
I am a fully qualified and insured equine & canine sports therapist, I offer healing and sports massage treatments tailor making each treatment to suit the individual animal.
I became interested in sports therapy through the love I have for my own animals. I have owned both horses and dogs for as long as I can remember and find they are more a way of life rather than just a hobby. My life with my animals has exposed me to many disciplines, including eventing, polo, show jumping, dressage and dog agility as well as everyday hacking and generally having fun!
Having watched the effect just hands can have on our amazing 4 legged friends, the decision was made to study and qualify as a Sports Therapist and since then I have never looked back. The pleasure I gain for how an animal reacts to a treatment is the most rewarding feeling that is hard to beat
I am a qualified Equine Confidence Coach, Canine Behaviour Trainer, Life Coach and I have my level 2 food hygiene certificate (ok not relevant but just testing to see who is reading this far!!). In addition to this, I have more recently obtained my Itec Level 3 in body massage and Level 4 Sports Massage, obtaining a merit after a great deal of hard work and studying.
I have owned my own horses for the last 15 years having been around them all my life, having had a major loss of confidence several years ago I learnt so much and I wanted to pass on that knowledge and experience to help others going through the same. I have undertaken NLP (Neuro Linguistic Practioner) coaching qualifications in order to undertake the confidence coaching.
Dogs, some years ago when I met my husband I became heavily involved with gundogs and have since bred and trained a number of dogs. Whilst I love training puppies I have always been known for my patience in training the slightly ‘wayward’ ones!
And another happy customer, after just a single session…
“Hi Katy, just to say Sian felt lovely. My Instructor saw a massive difference since our last lesson. Thanks so much for your help.”
