Cat Behaviour, Communication and Healing

Cats are my passion in life and the animal with which I have the deepest emotional and spiritual connection. I grew up with cats and they seem to gravitate towards me wherever I go. Cats are amazing, mystical creatures that bring great richness and joy to my life.

Many thousands of years ago, cats chose to live near human grain stores where the rodent population was abundant. It wasn’t long before these highly intelligent, enigmatic creatures moved into our homes and found themselves living in relative luxury.

Despite being surrounded by home comforts, cats still need to be able to express natural feline behaviours in order to feel relaxed and content. They make wonderful companions and are part of our family but not all cats cope well in a domestic setting. As much as we love them, there may come a point when a cat’s human needs to ask for help to resolve their behavioural issues. Cats may also need healing for physical and emotional problems, especially senior and rescue cats.

I offer support, guidance and healing to help cats and their human families better understand each other and improve their relationships. I often combine Reiki, Animal Communication and behaviour modification to achieve the best results. Veterinary permission may be required prior to a consultation. These are some of the cat behaviour problems and other issues with which I may be able to assist:

Toileting issues

Spraying indoors


Destructive behaviour


Tension in multi-cat households

Aggression towards humans or other animals

Obsessive or repetitive behaviour

Fears and phobias

Senior and rescue cats

Chronic conditions and illnesses

Cats with disabilities

Physical and/or emotional trauma

Post-operative recovery

End of life transition

Grief (animals and humans)

Plus many more...

My approach is simple because I work from the heart. I have a natural affinity with cats and understand their body language and subtle nuances of behaviour. I only ever use kind, reward-based methods and teach people how to ‘read’ their cat so that they can understand how it may be feeling and strengthen their bond. I also offer advice on environmental enrichment and how to ensure that their cat's natural feline needs are being met. I also offer Dog Behaviour Consultations which may help with issues in a multi-pet household.

I have achieved the Advanced Diploma in Feline Behaviour Management and its canine equivalent from Compass Education. I am currently studying their Graduate Diploma in Animal Behaviour Management at Honours Degree level to deepen my knowledge of animals. I am also required to carry out a certain number of hours of Continuing Professional Development each year to keep my knowledge up to date.

I am a fully qualified and insured Accredited Animal Behaviourist, Master Teacher Member of the UK Reiki Federation, Associate Certified Member of The International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (Cat Division), Full Member of The Assocation of INTO Dogs and Cat Behaviour Consultant with The Pet Professional Guild British Isles

I have run my own pet sitting and dog walking business since 2011 and have spent my life in the company of animals.

Cat Behaviour and Healing Prices

Initial Consultation

Initial cat behaviour consultations cost £85 within four miles of Swadlincote, South Derbyshire plus £0.45 per mile for round trips outside of this area. A consultation lasts for around two hours and includes a full behavioural assessment and advice and guidance if the problem is not too complex. It can also be discussed if Reiki and animal communication will be beneficial.

For more complicated problems, the consultation may be carried out in two stages. The first stage would be a full assessment and the second stage would include a detailed Behaviour Modification Plan, guidance and support. Ongoing support is offered via telephone and email for up to six months, if required. 

Follow-up Meetings

For more complex cases, one or more follow-up meetings may be necessary. Follow-up meetings are £50 and include further in-person guidance and support where required. Full support via telephone and email continues throughout this process.

Animal Reiki and Communication

Reiki and animal communication sessions are £20 each. Please see my Animal Reiki and Communication pages for details.

A combined Animal Reiki and Animal Communication session is offered at a reduced rate of £15 when included with a Behaviour Modification Plan. Further sessions are also offered at this reduced rate if they seem to be of benefit.

I always visit clients in the comfort of their own home to minimise stress on the cat and assess its living environment as part of the consultation process.

I am registered as an Accredited Animal Behaviourist with the ABTC so please check with your pet insurer as my fees may be covered.

My Approach

My approach is caring, supportive and non-judgemental. I aim to restore harmony in each household and examine every aspect of each case to glean a full picture which might provide clues as to why a certain behaviour or scenario is occurring.

Not every case is easy to resolve and may take a great deal of time and commitment on the part of the cat's human family. I always offer as much support and guidance as I can.

Veterinary permission may be required where it seems appropriate.
