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.
