Animal Natural Therapies

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 further 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 has included feline and canine zoopharmacognosy gateway courses with Caroline Ingraham, and two animal communication workshops.


She has worked as a veterinary receptionist, and helped voluntarily in several animal shelters both here and abroad, including the National Animal Welfare Trust, RSPCA, Animal Care Egypt, Dog Rescue Cyprus, The Cinnamon Trust and Paradise Wildlife Park. Her voluntary work has included feline herbal enrichment, canine natural food remedies, dog care and walking, and herbal self-selection for horses and donkeys (ACE).


Rita lives with her rescue dog, Amber, and her two cats Sam and Suki. She loves her animal and holistic work and continues to develop her skills.
