I am a qualified and experienced Mental Health/Holistic Counsellor, Companion Bird Behaviourist & Companion Bird Communicator and Reiki Practitioner.
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- $50 thereafter per session.

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.
for potential bird owners, anyone interested in speech perception, people who are
interested in the development of language in nonhumans, and bird keepers who
wish to share information about their talking birds.
