Companion Bird Behaviour Counselling

‘Birds are extremely intelligent with high level psychological and physical requirements. They must be treated respectfully and with empathy by their carers’.

Paris and agapeHello my name is Paris Yves and I am located in Melbourne, Australia.

I provide professional bird/parrot counselling advice to:

  • individual or groups of birds
  • school workshops
  • private workshops

I am a qualified and experienced Mental Health/Holistic Counsellor, Companion Bird Behaviourist & Companion Bird Communicator and Reiki presentation 1Practitioner.

My ongoing studies have confirmed that behavioural analysis applied to children and adults is the same applied to birds- yes, that is right.

So imagine what would happen if children were treated the same way that most companion birds in Australia are treated e.g, neglected, abused, alone all day, hit at, screamed at?

Or imagine if human babies were stolen from mothers in hospital, the same way eggs are stolen from the female birds in the companion bird breeding industry?


Birds require caring time, financial commitment and essential learning of bird behaviour education.

All bird carers should be aware of this before they decide to include a bird into their family- to ensure a happy and healthy bird.

Otherwise, the bird suffers a lonely, un-natural life and unethical life.

Don’t you think birds deserve better than how most of them live, in Australia- in pet shops, private homes, breeder facilities?

Please contact me for any bird behaviour advice.

First session is free- $50phr thereafter per session.

Hear from you soon !

Music Is in the Ear of the Beholder… (Well, sort of)

cat guitar 2Dr. Emily Weiss discusses new research on the impact of music on cats that can help you name that tune for the animals (and humans!) in your shelter.

Music is powerful. There have been studies that have found profound effects on humans (and non-humans!) from listening to music. In some cases these effects are positive – reduced heart rate, increased cognitive function, decreases in barking, for example – and in some cases, not so positive. Rock may increase aggression in rats, jazz may increase copulatory behavior. But even the same genres of music can result in different behaviors in the same species in different studies. With the use of music now quite common in our shelters as an application to decrease stress in shelter animals, a recent study brings a titch of caution regarding the liberal use of any ol’ tune.

Ban Birds Sales & Breeding in Australia from Paris Yves Read on Vimeo.

Paris Yves Read from Melbourne, Australia has been campaigning to Ban Bird breeding and bird selling in Australia. This bird industry abuses and disregards the emotions and welfare of birds. There are thousands of backyard and commercial bird mills/farms all over Australia- Time that the breeders/sellers stopped! Time that the Australian State Governments introduced laws to protect all Birds!

Birds have parallet capacities to people related to mental functions:
  • Human-bird-brain-crop-thinking & cognition
  • feelings
  • emotions
  • equal & lasting relationships
  • dreams and aspirations
