Cat Behaviour Consultations

I am a qualified and insured Animal Behaviourist who specialises in resolving cat behaviour problems in a kind, force-free way. I offer consultations remotely and also within 25 miles of Swadlincote, Derbyshire.


Our cats are part of the family and when they have behaviour problems, it can be very stressful. Instead of trying to cope alone, I am here to guide and support you in resolving your cat's behaviour problems, including:

  • Aggressive behaviour;
  • Anxiety, nervousness, fears and phobias;
  • Destructive or disruptive behaviour;
  • Inappropriate toileting (house soiling);
  • Self-harming such as over-grooming;
  • Plus many more...

Please visit my About page for my credentials. Veterinary referral is required in most cases. Please see below for details of my consultation process or contact me to arrange an initial assessment.

Initial Assessment

Initial assessment costs £45 and is an essential stage prior to a consultation. It enables me to advise if a consultation would be appropriate, how much it would cost and what would be involved. The cost of an initial assessment can be deducted from a consultation if booked within two weeks.


The process starts with me sending out a questionnaire via email and possibly also requesting videos of the behaviour of your cat(s) and their living environment. I may also offer some initial advice and request veterinary referral in order to proceed towards a consultation.
