Get to Know Me &
My Journey

Here you see me with my childhood bestfriend Monty. Our household was never without a pet, from frogs to horses, we had whatever I could convince my parents to let me bring home (sorry mum and dad).

I started volunteering while studying Veterinary Nursing at our local vet practice which lead me to fostering kittens and there my love for cats continued to grow. Working as a Vet Nurse I encountered many cats who exhibited problematic behaviours both at home and in the clinic as a result of their unique needs not being met. I knew I wanted to change that, but to do so would mean shifting my career focus. At the time and even now there are very few people working exclusively in cat behaviour, let alone in New Zealand. 

Going back to university was a big adjustment but two years later I graduated with distinction and set out on my mission to change cat's lives (and their owners) for the better. I'm now a proud member of the Pet Professional Guild, International Society of Feline Medicine and the International Association of Animal Behavioural Consultants.

Auckland is where I currently call home, with my partner, our two rats, a rabbit, a cat, and a dog. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, drinking copious amounts of tea, listening to true crime podcasts, baking and embroidery.

Cat Behavioural Services

Cat Chat consults (via Zoom)  are a great way to get 1:1 advice about your cat. Common topics include potential behaviour cases, kitten socialization, clicker training, introducing a new family member, enrichment ideas, moving house, and making vet visits less stressful.

Is a behavioural issue(s)  leaving both you and your cat unhappy? A behavioural consultation (via Zoom or in-home Auckland) allows us an in-depth look into your cat’s behaviours and environment, after which I will create a detailed step by step guide to resolving/mitigating these behaviours.

Our cat freaked out over lock down and decided not to live with us anymore. Molly was great at suggesting ideas to get him back. He is now back with us, settled and happy. A great result!

It worked! Thank you so much, Phantom is now taking his daily medication
with no issues 

I needed advice on how to help my two kitties get along as one of them was new to our home, Molly was super knowledgeable and gave lots of advice, helping my cats to slowly start being friends. Their relationship has improved and definitely on the right track.

Highly recommend The Cat Counsellor. I have two stressed cats Evee and Rocky, that don’t seem to be getting along very well. Molly has helped me understand my cats behaviour a bit more and given me lots of advice and tools to use to help both my fur babies.

Molly was really helpful with my former stray cat. We had a Zoom session and she was great with following up after and making sure I had the support I needed too.

We asked Molly to help us with our rescue cat Vinny who was freaking out when our new rescue cat Kiki arrived at our home. Molly gave us valuable insights into both cats behavior and a plan to de-escalate the anxiety and conflict. Both cats are now getting along much better and Vinny is back to hid old self. We have no hesitation recommending her.
