About Asentia 

Asentia is a small not for profit educational organisation offering exceptional value workshops with the vision of making a positive difference to the lives of people and animals. 

 

I am committed to:

  • Maintaining a high standard of teaching that was established in Asentia's past BTEC course

  • Sharing knowledge and experience, helping people to heal themselves and animals through their relationship with their pets, other animals and nature

  • Providing a supportive and caring learning environment

  • Acting ethically in all aspects of my work

Who I Am 

Sue Newport

I have been around animals for most of my life and I believe that they have much to teach us and deserve mindful care and respect. Through my background in Nursing, Massage, Craniosacral Therapy and Animal Healing I am able to share my experiences, understanding and knowledge to help others learn how to help themselves and animals. Guiding individuals to connect with their healing ability, develop their confidence and spiritual awareness is also a privilege and arises through a joint practice of sharing and caring which I believe is the crux of the learning experience. You don't have to be clever or successful in anything to learn, all you need is a heartfelt desire to learn something and someone to believe and know that you can do it.

 History of Asentia

Asentia was formed in 2008. A group of us came together with the idea of sharing our various healing knowledge and skills with others.  In 2009 Emily Robinson, Alison Roberts and myself established the Asentia College of Animal Healing to work primarily with animals and their carer’s. 

 

In 2010 the college became the first animal healing organisation to become a full member of the Confederation of Healing Organisations. In the same year we developed the first academic qualification in the UK for professionally trained animal healers. The BTEC Level 4 Professional Diploma in Animal Healing in partnership with Plumpton College, East Sussex was launched in January the following year. 

 

2013 saw the completion of the second successful BTEC course and we were proud to have received a Grade ‘A’ standard from Edexcel (examining board for BTEC qualifications) in both consecutive years. At the end of that year Emily then sadly moved overseas where she still continues to teach healing, and is still a strong supporter of the work Asentia carries out and Alison moved on to develop her Garden Design business. The Asentia Team had shared their knowledge and experience on over 40 workshops and delivered more than 700 hours of academic teaching for BTEC to train professional animal healing therapists.

 

Over the past years Asentia has ticked along running workshops and starting the development of online courses, continuing with the solid foundation set down by the academic course, for high standards and theoretical knowledge embedded in sound practical skills working with animals and people in a holistic way. Now 6 years on, in 2019, after an enforced break last year I am looking to take Asentia forward into the future . I am doing this by changing the emphasis of Asentia from college to healing with animals, where we learn about healing from the animals themselves, from nature and from each other so that we can all heal. Teaching and training will be shared by all participants because in that way our learning will be organic,  meaningful and remain with a solid foundation.
