Special Message From Carol:

I'm so pleased and proud to introduce my team of Gurney Institute Consulting Associates. All have completed our rigorous 5-Level HeartTalk Program® Certification Training under my personal guidance, and I would feel confident asking them to work with my own animals when (like any other professional dealing with "family members") I need to call upon outside assistance. Please click on the Associate's names at the left to read more about them.

Gurney Institute Certified Consulting Associates are graduates of The Gurney Institute of Animal Communication HeartTalk Program® Certification Training, a rigorous, comprehensive 5-Level Program lasting 1 1/2 to 2 years which produces Professional Animal Communicators skilled in dealing with behavioral or physical issues, helping find lost animals, and assisting with animals who are near the end of their lives or who have passed over.  A hallmark of our Program is our Client Action Plan, which gives you specific, realistic steps to help with your animal's behavioral or other issues.  Graduates of this program are required to complete more than 300 hours of training and meet all testing and evaluation standards throughout their training.  They have all successfully conducted 64 case studies, and must receive final certification approval by an independent Board of Review.
