Default Cat gets on the counter top

Simple and very effective solution. Upside down packaging tape. Then you
get to play her rescuer... "Awww, let me help remove that awful
packaging tape!"

It's the most effective and least stress inducing correction there is.
Since you are (in their minds) not the cause, it is almost stress-free.

Always better to modify their environment. Direct confrontation causes
stress, use it with caution. And the reason is because they are captive.
Try to treat them good enough so they would want to stay there if given
an option.
