Training courses are run by Catherine and her team at The Catherine Edwards Academy. Catherine works with an amazing range of experts and there are lots more courses (and retreats) coming soon.


Helping animal parents to learn as much as possible, so that they can make the best lifestyle choices for their animals, is our passion – we don’t want you to be dependent on therapists, we want you to enjoy learning as much as we do!   We do the research for you and then summarize it into our courses, consults and blogs. 


Naturally Animals run workshops & educational seminars throughout the year on various subjects. We also talk at various events – please see below for some recent and upcoming examples.


If you would like to run an in-person course for a group please contact us for details and prices.  

Check out our amazing Online Courses! They are perfect for animal owners and therapists. They include several hours of videos: theoretical explanation and practical demos, a PDF booklet to download for easy reference and you get lifelong access!

Here are just a few of the testimonials from our course attendees…

“This is the best course I have attended – I learnt so much and have puts lots into practice already with my own horse, thank you. You are the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable teacher and I have even been using the ointment myself!”. – Jenny

“I have just completed two of Catherine Edwards workshops, zoopharmacognacy and first aid. Thank you for your wonderful courses, it was just fantastic and inspiring. I am just amazed by the amount of information Catherine knows and freely gives to you. She is a person who likes to share ideas and knowledge and has the groups attention. There is a practical in the afternoon where we all can participate if we want too. It gives you an understanding of what your animal is showing you. I would highly recommend both courses as they empower you to help, calm and relax your animal when needed.” Julie Hanley

“This is an excellent course — having it online is so useful because I can keep re-watching the bits I need most! I learned so much about how to work with self – selection and I’m now comfortable doing it at home by myself which saves me paying the therapist to come to my house! Daisy loves smelling her oils in the evening before going to bed and she has become a much calmer dog since we work with the oils, she doesn’t panic anymore in situations that frightened her before, I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to help their dog with their emotions or health. The PDF-download booklet is fantastic, so useful! Thank you again.” – Melanie, Oxford

“Thank you for this amazing course! I finally feel confident to offer the herbs & essential to my horse and understand his reactions. I can’t thank you enough!” – Sarah

“I have tried various natural remedies with my dog but the problem was I never knew what was needed or what was working. Having completed the Introduction to Zoopharmacognosy I now feel much better equipped to deal with any pain my dog may be experiencing.” – Katy & Rhia

“I really enjoyed this course and looking forward to extend my knowledge that is so very good for our animals. I certainly will have more courses in the near future. I can’t thank Catherine enough to introduce me to this. I already had very good results when I phoned Catherine with a problem with one of our horses. My husband and myself can’t thank Catherine enough to help us to find our lost cat Asha. She was hiding and she came home to us later in the evening when it was quite outside just like Catherine told us. I can recommend this 1 day course to anyone who will give the animals the choice to heal themselves as they know best what is good for them.” – Jacqueline Hallam, Norfolk

“I’ve just done the Zoopharmacognosy Course for Dogs where I excitedly learnt how to use different essential oils & herbs to help my two 10 yr old Labradors to self heal. I was given all the confidence & knowhow to immediately start. I’m now easily setting aside half hour or more to offer my dogs oils and herbs to help them feel balanced and totally relaxed (it’s so funny & wonderful to see them zonked after just a 15 mins session). I want to tell everyone about it & would hugely recommend… I think it saves money on vet fees and is kinder to your pets ” – Sam

“Wow, what an amazing course! 2 great demo dogs with very different struggles and Catherine worked through each case with such skill, explaining what she was doing step by step, what she was looking for and how she was deciding on the next steps and letting the dog lead the session. It was quite an emotional experience and I soaked up all that I could to apply to my own dogs at home, which, so far, has been similarly emotional. Catherine is very talented and has so much to give; completely loved the course! Thank you.” – Ros

“Having worked with self-selection myself this course has given me so much extra information to help me make the right decisions for my horses and me! I love the practical demos and the theory presentations are really thorough, and I have already made changes to how I look after my horses. They have never been happier or healthier! Thank you so much! I can’t wait to do the dog one next!” – Mary, Cambridgeshire

“Thank you for an amazing day yesterday Catherine. It certainly has given me an amazing insight into the work you do. I found being able to watch other animals react so interesting but it was the owners reaction that really made me appreciate the depth of the healing process.Many thanks!” – Jane
