Courses and workshops and seminars reviews

Caroline and Zoopharmacognosy are truly amazing. She is a wealth of knowledge and a passionate and inspirational teacher. Her Gateway courses and books are incredible. This practice will not only greatly benefit the health and well-being of your beloved animal but it will also transform your relationship with them. I thoroughly recommend Caroline and her courses. It’s been an honour and a privilege to be able to study under her. Sarah S

Caroline is a brilliant & passionate teacher- I thoroughly recommend her courses to you if you have an interest in improving your understanding of your pet & being able to help him/her heal him/her self. Carolines latest book 'Animal Self-Medication' is compulsive reading - I struggled to put it down - brilliant work Caroline!. Kathryn B

I have found Caroline's Canine 2-day introductory workshop so valuable. I have 2 rescue dogs which I adopted shortly after doing the course with Caroline. Both dogs came with their issues, no doubt as a result of prior abuse and I can honestly say Applied Zoopharmacognosy has been so useful in helping the dogs improve both their physical and emotional wellbeing. Caroline has a wealth of knowledge and experience and is very happy to share it. I can thoroughly recommend the course. Anne B

Caroline is just amazing ! She does such incredible work for the animals. During the training course she was absolutely wonderful as she conveys her knowledge so generously ! I recommend her training and of course the books as well ! What we learn with Caroline is so fascinating ! Thank you so much Caroline ! (France) Sylive D

Caroline, how much I enjoyed yesterday. It is always mind blowing. You are a wonderful lady, and long may you continue doing what you do. Fiona A

Caroline truly is precious and I think should me nominated for an award for her services to animals and for bringing this amazing work that had previously been unknown into human world. A privilege to have trained with her. Gillian S

La zoopharmacognosie appliquée est le fruit de 35 ans de recherches par Caroline Ingraham. C'est le travail d'une vie, une contribution formidable au bien être animal et un accomplissement exceptionnel. La méthode apporte un soulagement immédiat à la souffrance et à la douleur des animaux. J'aimerais que tous les animaux de la planète aient accès à la zoopharmacognosie. Rose-Marie

Thank you for such an inspirational day we both really enjoyed it and it's given us the confidence to experiment at home! Amazingly my neck and shoulders still feel brilliant and next to no pain so thank you so much!! Saskia J

After, what, 15 years or so, I continue to be in awe at this work and with you, Caroline. Beth 

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your interview at the Summit. It is so interesting to see how your protocol has changed over the years and try and keep up to date. Carolyn S

Anyone with a passion for animals cannot fail to be affected by the inspiration that pours out of Caroline when she gives a workshop. To see the reactions of animals to applied zoopharmacognosyhappening before your eyes is incredible, and often very emotional - it is a way of communicating with them to help them heal themselves, and Caroline is the person who introduced and developed this applied science to the world. I am forever grateful to her for what she has taught me. Michael R

An amazing course, loved every minute & learned so much - thank you Caroline. Kathryn B

Thank you so much for a wonderful two days at the recent Gateway 1 course!! It was highly informative and intriguing. I have thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful home, tranquil garden and wonderful company of so many open-minded people. But the most wonderful thing for me was to witness the magical healing the animals experienced after selecting their remedies!! Pure Joy!! Blessings to you both, Ela (one of the vets attending)

I thoroughly enjoyed Caroline’s course. Absolutely mind blowing, so looking forward to signing up for level 2. Fiona A 

Dear Caroline, Thank you so much for your teaching. You are the most humble, patient and inspiring teacher I have ever met. I couldn’t really hold my tears in class. My feelings are so complex that I don’t know how to put them in words. Your words and your attitude towards our beloved animals on the earth make me reflect myself as an owner and also as a human. After the private session, I am so excited that I can read my dog after all these years finally. Addressing her needs make me feel connected with my doggie. I m pretty sure she felt the same as she kissed me so many times at that night. That’s unusual for her to do so. I can definitely feel the love and understanding. Thanks again for doing so much helping animals. Jo L

Dear Caroline, I am a student who attended your 2 day workshop in Hong Kong. I just want to express my gratefulness for teaching us about animal self selecting medication. I am truly blown away. Thanks again. Love, T

Caroline is such an amazing teacher, with so much wonderful knowledge and who is so willing to share all that she knows! :) It is such a treat to watch her in action with each animal, and with her kind and caring ways, seeing each as an individual, and with her incredible natural abilities. So much passion, knowledge, and beautiful connections with the Animals! Very thankful I was able to learn from Caroline and very grateful!:-):-) Nicola R   I'd like to echo everything Nicola just said, and those below !

I had an awe inspiring time Caroline - thank you - a real light bulb moment. Angela D

I would like to thank you for a fantastic weekend on the Canine Gateway Part 1. One of the reasons I come back each year is that animal self medication is always growing in its knowledge and I want to learn as much as I possibly can. I can't thank you enough for being such a great teacher. Beth C

Hi Caroline, I just wanted to thank you so much for such a fascinating day on Saturday at the Canine Gateway 2, and it was particularly brilliant for me to have the opportunity to bring Harry and Winnie and observe their responses to AZ. So much learned - the routes, the plans and then seeing where the dogs took us with their choices and selections. I obviously knew how significant AZ can be with dogs with obvious problems to resolve like my anxious and reactive Sophie, but I was blown away by how Harry and Winnie, both fairly balanced, healthy and easy going dogs, really embraced their opportunity, clearly communicated their needs and benefitted enormously from the session. Their choices were eye opening - Harry going for remedies to deal with bad bacterials, and stomach and gut - with fennel, clove, garlic, basil, bitter almond, and melissa on his 'A' list, and Winnie diving in to lick up two helpings of devil's claw, and St John's Wort, and then invite topical applications of sandalwood, yarrow, peppermint, sweet birch and lemon around bladder, groin, hip and her pelvic areas, to help with pain, urinary and perhaps hormonal issues. All their chosen input left them both in a deep relaxed and comfortable place, with Harry in particular, so chilled out that it needed great deal of persuasion to shift him to leave at the end at all!!  It was a wonderful learning day, in your lovely peaceful home - a perfect environment for the course, a delicious lunch (that glorious soup!) and having your amazing knowledge and intuitive and experienced eyes on the dogs to guide us through.  Thank you again. With love, Ros

Hi Caroline, I just wanted to thank you for an amazing workshop, it far exceeded my expectations and I enjoyed every minute of it.  It was so interesting to watch the dogs self medicate and to trust their instincts in what they needed. So much information to process. I'm having to rethink my whole approach to dogs and dog behaviour which is great, as to learn and be willing to change is so important. Lynne M

Hi Caroline, I just wanted to say a huge thank-you for a truly inspirational course – every moment of the two days was filled with top quality information and amazing case studies – and the practical work with the horses & ponies was mesmerising; seeing the transformation taking place right in front of our eyes was so rewarding and uplifting. Having had no experience of this field before, I found it heartwarming to receive such a great introduction to it - and I was even more delighted with the relief that you were able to provide to each of the equines. I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone who is interested in learning about the understanding and alleviation of ‘horse problems’, with solutions tailored to the unique needs of each individual. Karen G

Hi Caroline, Just wanted to say a huge thank you for your knowledge, expertise and hospitality over the last few days. I still have to process everything, but have been blown away by my experience. I'm so glad I did this course. It has been a truly emotional, jaw droppingly inspiring 2 days. This experience has been truly magical for me and once again, thank you so much for your time and support. If you get chance to do any Caroline Ingraham courses then do them. Diane K

Dear Caroline, Just wanted to drop a line to thank you for the wonderful workshop over the weekend. Ever since reading your book last year I felt your method speaks to me, there's so much logic and common sense behind it - but seeing it live at the workshop was nothing short of miraculous. Thank you again for sharing your work with us. It was an inspiration watching you and I have no doubt we only barely scratched the surface of your knowledge so I'm looking forward to joining the Gateway 2 workshop maybe later in the year. Warmest Regards, Daphna S

Hi Caroline, Just a quick note to thank you for a brilliant day yesterday, I gained a good understanding of the how’s & why’s of your new method & am really looking forward to working in this way. Kind regards, Charlie P

Hi, I really enjoyed the last 2 days on the Canine Gateway 1 course  and learnt so much that I've re-arranged another course to come on the Part 2 at the end of March, as I am eager to learn more. Thank you again for the last 2 days, they were so informative and have really opened my eyes to a different way of working with my dogs. Many thanks, Pavla L

Wow  - what amazing feedback on the animals we worked with!  It was so lovely to hear and see the amazing changes in these beautiful animals. It was definitely a very special weekend. Really enjoyed being part of it. Many thanks, Kate M

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for a brilliant two days with you. I feel so excited about offering the remedies to my dogs, and I feel quite mentally exhausted actually, but at the same time I can't wait to learn more. I am looking forward to seeing you again at the end of the month for Gateway 2 and most likely making more purchases in your shop! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise. Best wishes, Karen 

Fabulous 2 to 1 for me today, learned so much :-) Glynis 

Hello Caroline, Just wanted to say thank you for a brilliant canine workshop at the weekend. It was again absolutely amazing to observe you working with the remedies and the responses from the dogs. So interesting and informative. I learnt so much.  The workshop highlighted how different the approach can be together with the flexibility required when working with home dogs to rescue centre dogs. Applied Zoopharmacognosy for me really has the WOW factor.  I have never experienced anything that I have felt  so strongly, for in all that I have ever done.  I just  feel so passionate about the work. On another note, a huge thank you from both Alan and myself for helping us with our back problems.  My back has been amazing since you worked on it.  I have had no further aches or pain and I find I can sit comfortably.  Which I have not been able to do since 2004. The gel which you made for me is making a huge difference to Alan.  His injury has been referred to as soft tissue damage.  Lower & middle back together with bruised coccyx (sustained 2002). Together with a whiplash neck injury (sustained in an accident in the 1990’s). We drove home from the course with him saying “this is wonderful I feel so comfortable. No pain”  he also looked comfortable and relaxed in his body positioning.  Arrived home feeling great when he got out of the car.  Continuing to apply the gel and he continues to feel improvement. We consider it a privilege being part of the course and the work with the dogs. Karen W

Hi Caroline, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for your course. It has been inspirational, fascinating, heart warming and eye opening. Very many thanks, Toria

Dear Caroline, Thank you so much. That was a fascinating, exciting lecture/talk/demonstration yesterday.....! You are SO inspiring and give your knowledge so wholeheartedly, thank you.  Batty F

Hi Caroline and Tom, I just wanted to say a big thank you to both of you for the course over the weekend.  We really enjoyed it, and I’ve had a lot of excellent feedback from students and staff alike who were also thrilled with the input. I think you’ve set a lot of minds thinking, and it’s great that so many are interested in your course as a result. Sheila and Winny

Hi Caroline, I just wanted to say a big thank you for coming up yesterday, everyone enjoyed it enormously and the feedback has been brilliant; I loved your teaching style which was relaxed and informative; you were a pleasure to listen to and we were all very grateful for the extra time you took with the dogs and the timings of the seminar. Natalie L

Enjoyed the course so much. It is truly a phenomenal experience being on one of Carolines courses. Caroline is a true inspiration and very dynamic woman. I have all the time in the world for her. Michelle H

Dear Caroline, May I in all honesty say how impressed and grateful I am for your diligence and support!  I have been something of a proverbial 'student' and can - with my hand upon my heart, say you are absolutely head and 'whiskers' above the rest; in a hard won and truly much deserved league of your own.  My everlasting thanks. Lynn 

WOW!!!! I grinned all through whilst listening to you talk!!! Well done and congratulations!!! Amazing stories about animals recovery & I loved the Gandhi quote at the end. Suzie 

Hi Caroline, We'd like to say a HUGE thank you to you for coming along last week, as you saw there is a lot of interest in your work and people really loved the opportunity to come along and listen to you talk about the work you do :) Katie Love, Events & Community Fundraiser: Holy Hedge Sanctuary

Dear Caroline, It was great to talk to you after the lecture on Wednesday in the Life Sciences building. I was really inspired by your work and I would really like to learn more about the work you do. Claudia Rooke, Vice President of the Bristol University Veterinary and Zoological Society

Thanks again for another amazing weekend, please let us know if you ever have any spare time as we’d be more than happy to work with any of our animals as we’ve got one or two interesting cases at the moment. Kind regards, Steve Hill, Head of Animal Behaviour and Welfare, Bath Cats and Dogs Home

It's been a fabulous couple of days studying with the inspirational Caroline Ingraham, learning more about how dogs heal themselves in her eye opening Applied Zoopharmacognosy work. Wonderful to observe the dogs on the course being given the opportunity to take the lead and guide us in their needs, using this empowering communication system. Thank you so much Caroline and also to the great bunch of fellow students sharing the wonder of the AZ system. Also brilliant to have dates in the diary for onward insights and sessions with Harry and Sophie. Ros

Thank you for a lovely couple of days I really found the course beneficial and interesting, I will drop you an email in a few days time to find out any options open to me to further my learning and practice. Regards, Simon 

I see you as fearlessly authentic as you come from the heart Caroline. Rachel W-K

Hello Caroline, I truly enjoyed the four days. Your practical days were invaluable because they allowed me to see approaches that you cannot very well explain in writing. Mary R
