It’s a sad fact that the lives of our animals are so much shorter than ours and having an animal in your life means at some point, you’ll have to deal with their loss.

Knowing HOW your animal feels physically is vitally important to ensuring you make ‘that decision’ at the right time. It’s comforting to know you’ve made your elderly animal as comfortable as possible in their last days.

It also gives you a chance to ask your animal what they need as they prepare to transition. Do they want all their favourite foods or have they gone off their food?

Do they want to be taken to their favourite place before they go?

Are they okay to have ‘help’ from a vet, or would they prefer to die naturally (if possible)

And more importantly, how do they feel about their impending passing? What do they need from you before, during, and after they transition 

This session can also be used to speak to the other animals in the household AFTER the transitioning animal has passed.

Animal Transition Session Formats

There are TWO formats – the only difference is what happens AFTER I speak to your animal. 

Email Feedback

If you’d just like a record of the session and are happy to ask any clarifying questions via email, this is the option for you.

“One aspect I particularly appreciated about Colleen’s service was the comprehensive write-up she provided after the session. This eliminated the need for me to frantically take notes while trying to absorb the information being relayed. I find myself frequently revisiting the write-up to further absorb and reflect upon the insights she shared.”   

Video Chat Feedback

The video chat is much more detailed because, as I relate the session back to you, you get to hear inflections in my voice as I describe things, you’ll hear (and see) animated descriptions of scenarios, and you can ask clarifying questions on the spot, leading to a much more vivid and detailed session.

The session lasts approximately 60 minutes. You receive the full transcript document after the chat. 

Please note, there is currently a 2-week waiting list.
HOWEVER, this can be flexible if your animal’s transition is close.

If you think you’d have trouble coming up with questions to ask, here are some examples.

Mini-Transition Reading (1 or 2 mini-sessions)

A ‘shorter than normal’ session, email feedback only. Ideal for: 

  • Pre-Transition – if you just need to know how your animal feels about transitioning, what it needs and how it feels along with an exchange of messages.  (5 questions) 
  • Pre- and Post-Transition – for both before and after your animal transitions. (5 questions for before, 5 questions for after)

Pre-transition 50€ / Pre- and Post-transition session 90€

The Readings

You get to ask roughly 12 questions, or I can pick some from my standard list.

One reading if you would like a more detailed reading to prepare for your animal’s transition. (Email Feedback 90€ / Video Feedback 135€)

Two readings are ideal if you’d like a session and a follow-up to get a more detailed reading to prepare for your animal’s transition. Or, can be used for 1 session before transition, and 1 afterwards. Also ideal if you have 2 animals and want 1 session for each of them. (Email Feedback 170€ / Video Feedback 255€)

Three readings are ideal if you’d like multiple sessions for a transitioning or elderly animal (2 sessions before, 1 after). Also ideal if you have 3 animals and want 1 session for each of them. (Email Feedback 245€ / Video Feedback 365€)

Four readings are ideal if you’d like multiple sessions for a transitioning or elderly animal (3 sessions before, 1 after) or great if you have 4 animals and want 1 session for each of them. (Email Feedback 310€ / Video Feedback 465€)

“Colleen has an amazing gift of communicating with animals. I admit that I was sceptical at first. But I saw Colleen’s posts and contacted her at the most heartbreaking time when my daughter’s beloved dog, Boss, was deteriorating with doggy dementia. Colleen spoke to Boss and got so many details right – from how scared he was when my daughter first found him as a stray, to his favourite place being beside the canal…”
