"I cannot recommend this course highly enough. It is truly the most relevant, enlightening, empowering, life-changing experience. I suffered from imposter syndrome after returning to practice after my second maternity leave. I doubted myself, my capabilities which in turn caused so much chronic stress and fatigue.

Just when I thought I was done with the stress of clinical practice, I found a way to manage my life, my stress, my anguish, that sinking feeling on the way to work. I am now on a different path to finding what I truly want from life and learning about myself. I don't worry about the day to day stresses of clinical life or negativity from clients. It simply doesn't fill my thoughts and take over my life.

I implore anyone who is not enjoying clinical practice to do this course. It does exactly what it says on the tin. Empowering."

"After completing the 12 week Vet Empowered course I cannot recommend it enough. The content that Katie and Claire have chosen to include within the programme and the manner in which it was presented was brilliant and truly life changing. The content has changed my perception and improved my entire life, it is not just applicable to within the veterinary context. Yet saying that it has given me the confidence and skills to return to practice (after leaving the profession 8 years ago due to stress) in a more mentally sustainable and healthy manner.

 

Katie and Claire are knowledgeable and convey the content in a manner that is easy to digest and fun, they bounce off each other beautifully and really know their stuff. They are very supportive and you really feel like they are invested in you and your personal journey.

The fact that the content was presented to us via a recorded zoom call was great for family life and I still listen to the recordings over and over, nothing else can boost my mood quite like a quick check in and mental reset from Katie and Claire.

 

I was sceptical about it being a group programme initially as I was worried I would get less out of it than a 1-1 programme, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Not only was it lovely to get to know a great group of people, I learnt so much from them and what they were going through because as you will learn if you do the course we all have the same inner critic voice. The support and enthusiastic motivation over the group chat was (and still is) a fantastic way to really ensure that what we were learning was being embedded into our daily lives, and this was a huge reason that the programme was such a success for me."

We asked:

What did you enjoy the most about Vet Empowered?

 

  • The community feeling of people who understand me

  • The interaction with the rest of the group and coaches.

  • Hearing other people’s wins and celebrating even the smallest of wins with such joy and appreciation

  • I really enjoyed how the weekly calls were set up as a content week and then a coaching week. It helped solidify putting tools into practice and assessing how they worked.

  • Talking and getting to know the other people and realising not alone in worries I have.

"I was going to say this course changed my life, more accurately it has given me the skills and motivation to change my own life. I am calmer, more confident and excited about the future. It has helped me to feel more comfortable about my career, home and social life but most importantly I'm much, much happier in my own head. Using the techniques and tools Katie and Claire have shown us feels like only the start of a fun journey and I'm looking forward to continuing to develop them. It was so beneficial working in a group and I've met the most lovely and inspiring people in the process"

"This 12 weeks course with Katie and Claire just flew by! Two incredibly lovely coaches with such amazing insights and content, through small tweaks I have felt such a shift in my mindset and energy. The group members were also so inspiring and lovely to work with in the sessions. Definitely feel like I've invested in myself, learning the tools to continue this journey with self development."

"I decided to sign up to Vet Empowered because I was in my first year of qualifying as a veterinary nurse after 4 years of studying at university and I was constantly feeling anxious about work. I would go home and pick apart my day, anxious that I had or think I had made mistakes. I getting in a bad cycle or beating my self up over anything and everything. Now at the end of this 12 week program I have a whole new mindset that I really did not think possible. I am kinder to myself, understand the reasoning for my thoughts and now have the tools I need to control these thoughts, feelings and emotions. I now feel lighter and have a more positive outlook both at work and in my personal life. There will always be more work to do, but I never would have know the change was possible without Claire, Katie and my lovely group."

"Vet Empowered really does what it says on the tin. It empowers you! I was feeling a bit lost before I started the course, and by the end, I feel a lot closer to the real me. 

These ladies are incredibly kind and supportive. 

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this course to everyone. 

If you want to feel more you. If you want to calm and understand your thoughts and be the best ‘you’ you can be. This course will help you achieve that!

So much love for Vet Empowered."

 

Vet Empowered Graduate Wave 2, 2021, Beth, MRCVS

I was still in my first year of qualifying as a veterinary nurse when I embarked on the Vet Empowered programme. I felt disconnected from the career I had only just properly entered, uninspired and regularly got myself caught up in continuous thought cycles.

The programme has really enhanced my self-awareness of my thoughts and how I feel and react to them. The inner critic speaks to all of us and used to really take over my thoughts and consume so much energy on a regular basis. The tools and techniques taught by Claire and Katie on the course can be applied to so many situations and will stay with you forever. They have been so beneficial in pushing through the negative thoughts and working towards a more positive outlook, the inner critic and its negative stance isn’t the real me and never will be, I know that now! 

 

I was apprehensive about group coaching but the support, motivation and enthusiasm in the group was amazing, it was so much easier to share than I thought it would be. Everyone has very similar worries and challenges and it was so comforting having others alongside me throughout the programme. Claire and Katie are inspiring and so invested not only in the group as a whole but also in each individual and have really helped me reconnect with myself and my values. With their guidance I have highlighted areas of development and look forward to continuing on my personal journey to a happier me!

"Vet Empowered was a great 12 weeks for me of sharing my challenges with a group of other like minded vets similar challenges. Katie and Claire are a font of very valuable information and I found the group component to the coaching surprisingly a huge benefit. I learnt so much from the other members of vet empowered too. After a lifetime of beating myself up to do better my biggest take home was that my "inner critic" holds no useful place in my life - this realisation has totally changed the way I approach my day. I cannot remove stress from my life at this point of my life but if I can talk to myself nicely through whatever stresses arise then surely that is a better way through. Thank you Katie and Claire exactly what so many vets need at exactly this time.”
