Rita Lymboura

Complementary Therapist 

She gained a Diploma in Animal Healing and a certificate in Natural Animal Food Remedies with

Elizabeth Whiter’s Healing Animals Organisation. This led to studies in herbal remedies, taking a short course for human use at the College of Naturopathic Medicine before studying animal herbal self-selection (applied zoopharmacognosy) with Jo Rose. Further CPD courses include feline and canine zoopharmacognosy gateway courses with Caroline Ingraham. Rita recently trained in Canine Merishia Massage for mobility and joint care. She has also taken animal communication classes, to enhance her connection with her animal clients.


Rita has experience working as a veterinary receptionist, and voluntarily worked in several animal shelters both here and abroad, including the National Animal Welfare Trust, RSPCA, Animal Care Egypt, Dog Rescue Cyprus, and The Cinnamon Trust.


Rita lives with her rescue dog, Amber, and her two cats Sam and Suki. She loves her animal and human holistic work and continues to develop her skills.  She is a registered healer and Member of the Healing Animals Organisation and a registered member of the Rose Association of Therapists.
