About Animinds

Animinds is the first animal behaviour and welfare consultation service in Greece. Created by Marilyn Peters BSc MSc in 2005, Animinds provides training and consulting services to animal caretakers through a unique and innovative holistic approach. This pioneering approach combines documented positive scientific behavioural modification techniques with natural methods of healing.

Using our innovative holistic approach we are able to help a variety of pet species ranging from dogs and cats to birds, rodents, and rabbits and in doing so always take into account the whole body (physical and energetic), and also the mind and spirit of the animal and its guardians.

Animinds is also very active in the field of education offering a range of up-to-date seminars and workshops for caregivers and professionals alike.

What can Animinds offer you?

Animinds can offer you and your animal peace and balance in your co-existence. We act as a mediator between the human and animal worlds and with the help of both science and nature are able to answer any question from the simplest management question you may have to questions related to the most serious and complex behavioural problems you may be facing with your animals.

How does Animinds work?

We offer one-to-one professional consultation either directly at the animal’s home or via distance consultations using Skype, Viber, What’s App, Facebook messenger or any other such online chat application.

About Marilyn Peters

Marilyn Peters is a Molecular Biologist (BSc) with a Master’s of Science (MSc) in Applied Animal Behaviour and Animal Welfare from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. Marilyn is no ordinary animal behaviourist, however. She has a unique take on animal behaviour as she combines classical scientific behavioural techniques with a more holistic approach using nutrition, essential oils, flower remedies and energy healing modalities to address the physical, psychological and emotional levels of behavioural dysfunction.

Marilyn is a certified Pet Food Nutrition Specialist both for processed pet foods and raw pet foods alike, and has professional diplomas in:

  • Essential oil therapy for animals (Diploma in Animal Psycharomatica) from Nayana Morag of Essential Animals
  • Reiki
  • EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique Level 1 and 2)
  • ThetaHealing (Basic DNA & Advanced DNA, Manifesting and Abundance, Game of Life)
  • Tong Ren
  • Animal Communication

In 2004, Marilyn returned to Greece and founded Animinds, a consulting business whose mission is to bring humans and animals closer together. This mission has set her on a path of extended roleplaying, taking on conventional roles such as animal behaviourist/welfarist, educator, reporter and author, and more unconventional ones such as intuitive, healer, foster mum and volunteer on many different rescue missions.

 As important as working hands-on in the field of animal rescue and rehabilitation is, however, education of the public is always top on Marilyn’s list of priorities. She believes strongly that only via education will the most fundamental change occur in animal welfare. In doing so she has been involved in a variety of different animal related programmes and educational events on television, radio and online, both in Greece and abroad. She herself holds many holistic animal behaviour workshops and seminars to educate people about their animals’ natural needs and how to communicate with them clearly. 

She is currently living in Athens with her husband, two children, four dogs, two cats, rabbit, guinea pig and budgie!
