Pet of the Month: 

"Animals are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions; they pass no criticisms" - George Eliot

This month's Pets of the Month is Julius, brought to us by Anna Steel. He is a 10 year old ginger cat who is very adventurous and loves to play outside. He loves getting petted and rolls on his back so you can pet his tummy. Julius loves to hunt mice and birds and is very good at it. He likes to leave his owners presents. 
Send us a picture and brief description to have your pet featured in an upcoming newsletter. 
Featured Product:

G-TEP Pads (Adult version)

(New Updated Version 2019) This set of Adult EMDR G-TEP worksheets are designed for use by EMDR G-TEP trained clinicians. This is a user friendly single worksheet design for a step-by-step guide to the process. It is a large 11 x 17 color coded worksheet, which is also a meta-communication: in which the trauma event is enveloped with present/past/& future resources arranged spatially to physically convey that the event is in the past; that they are safe now in the present; & that there is hope for the future.

We want our newsletter to be a place for sharing stories and knowledge.  Please submit an article or fill out the suggested questions and we will create an article for you!
