The consultation process:

Consultations take place in your home – this enables Hanne to see you and your cat[s] in your natural environment.  Prior to your first visit, clients will have to complete a preassessment form.

Depending on the case, the consultation process is typically one session lasting around 1.5 to 2 hours.  A follow up session[s] can be booked and are usually around 1 to 1.5 hours.  Your cat’s daily routine, history and family’s expectations of your cat will be discussed and your pet’s behaviour observed.  Hanne will help you to understand why your cat is displaying unwanted behaviours and more importantly, how to deal with them.  An accurate diagnosis and treatment plan will be provided.  Full telephone and email back up support will be available to you following your consultation for a period of time (approximately six weeks), so you have the support and coaching you need to ensure success.

The consultation fee is £90. This includes:

  • your consultation
  • mileage (within an 8 mile radius)
  • full set of notes and behaviour modification action plan
  • back up advice and on-going coaching via email and telephone for approximately six weeks.

Follow up sessions are charged out at £40 per hour.  Preferred payment is via BACS transfer.
