48-year-old Roache, son of Bill Roache who plays Coronation Street's Ken Barlow, told occult magazine Spirit and Destiny that he wanted to find out why his cat Chloe kept climbing 80ft trees.
He said: "I was spending $300 (£186) a time to pay tree surgeons to rescue her."
The animal communicator he consulted told him that tree climbing was an immature habit Chloe would grow out of. She added that Chloe had said: "I'm not up the tree now, so what are you worried about?"
Roache also used the psychic to talk to another of his cats, Jack, both when the animal was alive and after he died.
The actor is now moving to New York to help run spiritual network EnlightenNext, which says that it is "dedicated to catalysing evolution in consciousness and culture". Roache admitted that he was trying to embrace his spiritual side because he had realised "success as an actor alone" wouldn't make him happy.
He went on to reveal that he currently meditates with his father and feels that he has been influenced by his parents, who become druids in the 1960s.
