Who is Joanne Frame?

I'm a human being, a woman, a mother, a daughter, a sister and a dog lover.  I like thinking.  I thrive on linking ideas and finding purpose.  I am NOT a very good dog trainer.

I decided I wanted to work with the human and dog relationship, to see how we could use it learn about ourselves. I trained in counselling.  I trained in energy therapy. In time I brought my ideas, training and experience together and launched my business Hounds Connect, creating and delivering Anubis Therapy, working with the emotional connection between people and their dogs.

I see the relationship between humans and dogs as evolving. As the human race is evolving we are getting more aware of our heart-based inter-connectedness.  The great masters from history and the many indigenous peoples throughout the world have taught this. We can also find this view supported by western science.  It seems to me that as humans are evolving to be more heart-based, our dogs are evolving to support us in this.

I continually work to better understand my emotional link with my dogs.  This includes my 'in-the-moment' feelings and the deeper opportunities for healing that it brings up for me.  I believe that this is the role our dogs are here to help us with and the more 'problems' that we have with our dogs, the bigger the opportunity is to learn from them about ourselves.

My personal therapists are Jack (hamiltonstovare), Logan (trailhound) and Archie (Labrador retriever). We are learning together - although I think I have more to learn than they do.
