Janine Mc

42, Therapist

Hi there!
My name is Janine, I'm 42 years old and I love animals!
My house sitting experience includes looking after the usual dogs and cats, to taking care of hobby farm animals like horses, chickens and cows and some reptiles too!
Currently, I work as a clinical hypnotherapist-psychotherapist, EMDR trauma therapist and do remedial massage from a couple of clinics on the Gold Coast. I also have qualifications in yoga, meditation and have done lots of study on Buddhism in a temple in Melbourne. Currently, I'm in my final year of studying acupuncture.

I decided to start house sitting when I was in Melbourne as way of moving around and exploring different areas. Since I am so free, I am hoping that I can be of benefit to someone who needs their fur babies looked after when they go away. Happy to do cleaning, gardening and minor maintenance things here and there too! I don't drink or smoke and I'm a vegetarian.
Me in a nutshell- quiet, focused, clean (your house will probably be cleaner than you left it!), caring, respectful, will update you on your pets regularly, reliable. I also have an updated police check and a Blue Card for your peace of mind :) I am also a member of many professional organisations as part of my therapy work.
Look forward to connecting with you!
Namaste :)

Janine was absolutely great with Marley. Actually Marley was a bit quiet on day 2 once Janine had left which shows us that they bonded well. Janine was perfect for our house sitting and an easy person to get along with great communication. Would recommend Janine to anyone…Thanks again Janine

Janine answered our ad just as I was about to give up and go to another housesitting website. She was a godsend. She was lovely with the dogs and I felt absolutely comfortable leaving them and our house in her care. She updated me regularly while we were away and sent me photos of the dogs. Very happy! Thanks Janine!!

Janine looked after our house and cats when we went away and was fabulous. She kept in touch, sent photo's, watered our outdoor & indoor plants and left the house clean and tidy. Thanks Janine!

Janine is an excellent pet/housesitter. Our two anxious cats were happy and healthy on our return. The house was clean and tidy with fresh milk in the fridge and even a sweet treat for us!! Janine took the time to update us on the cats progress while we were away so we could relax more knowing they were ok. We have booked Janine for our next couple of trips away and feel confident to leave our beloved feline friends in her very capable hands. Would highly recommend Janine for a ... MORE

Janine was a fantastic sitter fornour house. She was able to come and visit to meet the pets before her stay which really helped us relaxed into our time away. On the sit, Janine gave an update to let us know that everything was well including photos of the animals and the house was lovely and clean on our retrun. We would definitely recommend her.

Janine was amazing and we highly recommend her! She took wonderful care of our dog, kept us up to date with how everything was going and also kept our place very clean. We would definitely use Janine again in the future with no hesitation. Janine, our dog is still waiting at the door for you to come back!!

I could not be more happier with having found Janine to look after my home and my cats, Mia and Jazzy :) I had to go on a very short notice work trip, and was worried about my girls being with someone new for 5 weeks, but I had to go and put my faith in Janine that all would be ok - and all was more than ok! :) Janine went above expectations, sending me a pic on the first night of them being comfortable - already winning them over! She kept me updated and sent me photos and videos of the ... MORE
