I have been working closely with cats since 1988 and specifically as a Cat Behaviour Counsellor from 1994 to 2019, treating behaviour problems in cats both in the UK and abroad. I am also an international bestselling author of 7 cat behaviour books for the cat-owning public and co-author of a number of veterinary textbooks.
I am a Registered Veterinary Nurse and member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors. I am also a Registered Clinical Animal Behaviourist with the Animal Behaviour and Training Council. I also have a diploma in person-centred counselling and am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
Since November 2019 I closed my Behaviour Referral Practice and I now work for International Cat Care in their Cat Advocacy Team as Project Manager for Cat Friendly Homing.
JP is always at my side when I am working in the office and can frequently be heard in the background when I am speaking to clients!
