Members can provide counselling either at a clinic or by way of a home visit
Clinics: Clinics are held at a specific location, usually the member's own premises, as part of a veterinary surgery or university veterinary school, where you will go with your pet to discuss their problem behaviour. This allows the counsellor to see more pets each day and helps keep costs down. Many cousellors hold clinics in different locations on different days of the week, for your convenience.
Home Visits: In a home visit, the member will travel to your home to see you and your pet. This allows the counsellor to observe your pet's behaviour in their own environment, which can help in determining causes of the problem. It also helps to observe interactions in multi-pet households and with different family members. Consequently, the counsellor may be better able to tailor the behaviour modification programme to your individual circumstances.
Please note that members are usually unable to answer questions about individual cases by e-mail or give telephone advice because of the need to establish an accurate diagnosis, determine motivation and discuss the appropriate treatment programme in detail.
