This page was originally for my newsletters but I have only got so much time to do so much. I have decided to share my Pet Grief project here with you instead.


I am actually leaving what was originally here at the top of the page from 2013. I shared the sad news of the loss of my darling cat Stanley. Five years later I have written my book Pet Grief - How to Cope Before and After and wish I had known back then, what I know now.

Snow Cat

The original  start of my newsletter...


I, my husband Bob, and  Sally his canine friend, were devastated at the loss of our dear little cat Stan, who like so many  cats in spirit I talk to, lost his life on a road. I can truly say, that I felt like my heart had been ripped out, thrown down and trampled upon, but at least I know he is always with me and is an Angel and he was in his Earth life too. His first words he sent me from the spirit world were,

"Remember me, I am not far away and will forever in your heart stay."

I thank all my wonderful friends who supported me during this awful time and say a huge appreciation to the patient clients who waited for me to surface back to face the world and work again. At the end of this I have included a picture of him with the poem that I wrote the night he passed over - he was buried with his own copy signed with love from his 'mum and dad'. I have only just gained the strength to read it and print it up - I have left it to the end in case you are at work or would rather read it at another time.

This was also included in my newsletter and In loving memory of Stan I will leave it one this page.


I know many of you knew from him from his Facebook photos and tales and also the people he taught. He is still helping people to  learn and I now call upon him for my spirit work and he has helped me to connect to many beautiful souls that have passed over too.


Five years on and I am in 2018 and life has had many turns however, I have met some amazing and informed people who know how we can help our minds, to help ourselves.

I am even divorced from Bob, however we remain firm friends. I believe that life has many paths and I live for the day, just as animals do. There are many challenges to life (being a cancer survivor what a huge one) but everything has a reason and if lessons are learnt from our mistakes, then they have helped us in our lives, although it might have seemed like that at the time.

Although I am the author of seven animal communication books, this book is different... You do not even need to believe in psychic things or even the afterlife - it is a self help book filled with practical help and ways to instruct your mind to help you through what you will feel it the most awful time of your life. I know, I have been there and very recently too.


Pet bereavement affects so very many people and although I know this book is unique and helping people, it is the public's opinion that counts. It has only just been released and I have had some wonderful feedback and excellent Amazon reviews already. I spend my life helping animals and their onwners, whether on telelvision or my daily work. I am so touched that through this book, yet again, I am able to help ease people's hearts and minds. I am honoured to be given this work to do.


It is available in paperback and digital from Amazon here.

I had a reading with Jackie when my dog Gem got her wings and have kept in the loop with her facebook page. This book is a must for anyone who is struggling and it is also great for day to day non pet related feelings too. I could not put this book down. The simple exercises are easy to follow and work with practice. Before I read this book I was in a pickle and not coping at all. I never thought I would ever have a day where I would feel lighter again and this book helped with that. it answered my internal questions and covered everything I was feeling with a very useful mind exercise which has changed everything. literally i woke up the day after starting the book feeling lighter for the first time in 7weeks. you do benefit from practice. i would suggest getting this book as it is a life changer when you are in the pits of grief. non complicated and achievable and i was a lost cause to the point my family were worried about me. thank you Jackie and sally.
