I’ve been working with cats for over 10 years - as a cat behaviour counsellor helping clients with their cat’s behaviour, through my role as the Feline Welfare Manager at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, and through working with Battersea as a facilitator on their Academy programmes.
I have a BSc and an MSc in Psychology and a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Animal Behaviour from the University of Lincoln.
My training and experience has given me an in-depth and current understanding of cat behaviour and welfare and the skills to get to the root cause of a cat's behaviour and develop effective, 'cat friendly' behaviour plans tailored to the cat, client and their situation.
The RSPCA advises members of the public to work with behaviourists who are members of reputable professional organisations or Certified Clinical Animal Behaviourists.
I'm a chartered member of the British Psychological Society, a provisional member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors and a Candidate Member of the Fellowship of Animal Behaviour Clinicians working towards accreditation as a Certified Clinical Animal Behaviourist.
I’m covered by specialist professional insurance and have an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
