Sue has published a series of therapeutic stories for children - a great resource for reaching and helping any child, without triggering defenses. Stories explore topics including grief and loss, frustration, alarm, grace, holding on and the unconditional nature of love. The stories all star the ponies, dogs and cats Sue works with at Healing Hooves and 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these books go to fund counselling sessions with low income families.

Details of these books are available on the Healing Hooves website www.healinghooves.ca and facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/healinghoovescanada/ by contacting Sue at sue@healinghooves.ca and at some Neufeld conferences.
