The Vet Empowered Signature Programme

Time and time again the transformational group experience is called ✨life changing✨ amongst veterinary professionals...

An introduction to our most amazing, immersive, lifechanging programme.

Are you feeling stuck and unsure about what you truly want from vetmed and beyond?

Do you find yourself thinking "is this it?"  and convinced there must be more to life?

Are you ready to step past the inner critic and into your most authentic, empowered self?

It's time to break free from the cycle of self-doubt and rediscover yourself, because you are worth getting to know. The real you. Let's ditch societal expectations, and pressures of post-nominals and start with handing you the keys to make things happen.


Introducing the Vet Empowered Signature Group Programme, led by experienced veterinary coaches Claire Grigson and Katie Ford. This transformative program is designed for action-takers who are ready to make sustainable changes and be part of an uplifting community that supports and motivates each other. As part of this immersive coaching experience, you'll skyrocket confidence, learn how to navigate your inner critic on another level and realign with what it means to live a life authentic to you. With access to weekly group coaching calls, personal development discussions, reflective journaling, and meditation sessions, you'll have the tools to make long-lasting mindset shifts. Most importantly, we show you what has been holding you back from using these tools in the past. This stuff is game-changing, we give you all of our secrets.


But it doesn't stop there. When you join Vet Empowered, you become part of a high-energy group of like-minded veterinary professionals who are on a similar mission. We tackle both clinical and non-clinical scenarios, from imposter syndrome to decision-making and setting boundaries. This programme goes beyond the surface level – it's about discovering your true identity and creating a life that aligns with you. ✨


Say goodbye to unfulfilling goals and negative self-talk—join Vet Empowered today and start connecting with the most confident, authentic, and aligned version of you. We are far (faaaar) more than a lunchtime webinar, s(h)elf help book, or Facebook group with some prompts. 


🙌🏻 Find out more below, with options to join for 6months or 12months because this is all about you.

T, Veterinary Surgeon

"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."

G, Veterinary Surgeon

"After completing the 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.

K, Veterinary Nurse

"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"

So, who is the Vet Empowered Signature Programme for?

Are you a veterinary professional seeking clarity, growth, and a renewed sense of purpose? The Vet Empowered Signature Group Programme is specifically designed with you in mind. Our ideal match is someone who is ready to take action and make sustainable changes in their lives as a whole because that's our jam .

  • Are you fed up with spending all of your time outside of work, thinking about work?

  • Do you wish you felt more confident and trusting in your own decisions, but don’t know where to start?

  • Are you always say ‘yes’ to everyone else, and it’s leaving you feeling overwhelmed and frustrated?

  • Do you feel like work is becoming your whole identity, and you can’t really remember what else lights you up?

  • Are you curious about personal development and growth, but don’t know where to start?

  • Does life just feel a bit monotonous, and you know there’s more?

  • Do you want to be part of a community of like-minded, kind, fun and forward thinking individuals?

  • Do you want to make change in your life, but you’ve not had the tools to do so?

  • Are you sick of the inner critic's BS?

  • Do you know that something needs to change, but you’ve been unable to put your finger on it?

  • Are you ready to take action so that the above doesn't continue for the next 5-10-20 years?

If you resonate with this, you might be our person.


We understand the challenges you face—those moments of uncertainty, self-doubt, and feeling lost or disconnected. We know the inner critic that holds you back, questioning your abilities and keeping you stuck because we have been through this too. But hold the phone, because Vet Empowered is here to guide you towards what those who've done the programme describe as 'lifechanging' transformation, and give you the secret sauce.

You know there's more for you and more to life.

You know deep down that you can make things happen.

You know it helps to have an expert guide along the way.

We don't do the work for you - we hold the space, remind you who you are and give you the tools, as you find your own answers. 

We promise if you put the work in that you'll be surprised (and bloomin' proud) by the end.


Is this just for vets?

Is this just for new graduates?

Is this you?

Let's be honest, we are more about your vibe than your job title. That said, we do bring in scenarios relevant to veterinary medicine; don't expect clinical CPD though or intricate anatomy. We have had veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses, student vets, student vet nurses, practice managers and more. If you're in this space and Vet Empowered feels right, we got you!

We'll be honest, we've had those pre-qualification right to 25 years' experience in practice. We've had new graduate vets and we've had specialists. Again, we are more about who you are and what you want than your post-nominals. If our unique way of working appeals to you, ditch the judgement of how long you've been in the profession.

If we were new graduates though we'd be jumping all over this... just sayin'.

We know the pain points of veterinary medicine, and we helped plenty to navigate them and find fulfilment. Maybe you're unsure about your next career move, or feeling like you've lost sight of your true passions. You may be trapped in a cycle of self-doubt and low confidence, believing that your dreams are out of reach. It's exhausting, isn't it?

We've got you.

A quick hello from the founders.

We can't wait to meet you!

You'll find out more about both of us on the rest of the website, but we truly believe we are coaches with a difference in the veterinary space. We genuinely don't give a f***k how many letters you have after your name, our aim is to reconnect you with you. We live everything that we teach, and we empower others to do the same; spend any time with us and you'll see that. We have a collective experience of other 25years in clinical practice as well as our coaching expertise, having gained certificates, ECC work, charity practice, and more.

Even though we aren't afraid to have fun and add a little sparkle to what we do, we know our sh*t. We've trained and coached for years, spoken on stages across the globe alongside big names like Roxie Nafousi and the High-Performance Podcast guys, we've guested on podcasts, won RCVS Inspiration Awards, gathered over 50,000 social media followers between us, been trusted consultant for big vet brands and so much more. We have worked with hundreds of veterinary professionals already, will you be next? ✨

You are SO worth getting to know, we promise.

We help you to see your value and create the life that you want, in a high-touch, supportive environment."


Will you be the next human we support to see their success?


What makes us different?

We imagine if you've got this far, you're pretty excited about this by now? We think you should be. This isn't just another standalone programme or CPD course that you sign up to. This is a game-changer and we are proud of the way that we do things around here.

So, what's different about Vet Empowered?

  • ✨ We're not your average coaches – we're fun, high-energy, and relatable AF! We walk our talk and aren't afraid to shine. 

  • 💎 We work on the level of identity - even more effective than just limiting beliefs alone, that you'll see elsewhere. Rediscover the real you – the confident, valuable, one-in-400-trillion gem that you've always been. We're here to remind you of your greatness, despite the perceived flaws, even when you forget.

  • 🚫 No more hierarchy! Your job title doesn't define you here, we don't give a f*** how many letters you have after your name. We celebrate the incredible human being behind the scrubs. You're never too 'qualified' or 'not qualified enough' to be welcomed in.

  • 💖 Kindness is our secret sauce. Whether you need a warm hug or a gentle kick in the butt, we've got you. Compassionate support all the way! 

  • 💪 With a combined 25 years of wisdom in the trenches, we've been there, done that, and got the stethoscope. We understand your struggles, triumphs, and everything in between. 

  • 🔑 Take charge of your life! We're all about empowering you to be the creator of your life, not a waiter. No more waiting around – it's time to make things happen. 

  • 🔬 Science meets spirituality, because you don't have to choose sides! Dare to believe in both and discover a whole new level of personal growth and fulfillment. What do we mean by spirituality? We mean embracing a broader perspective that includes aspects beyond the purely scientific or materialistic. We honour the exploration of spiritual or metaphysical concepts, such as personal growth, self-reflection, mindfulness, and finding meaning and purpose in one's work and life.

  • 💥 Say goodbye to being stuck in your head! We never see this tackled elsewhere. Our powerful somatic tools dive deep into your body's wisdom, unlocking transformative change from within.

  • 🏆 We are absolutely committed to helping those in our programmes - we don't hand you a set of worksheets and run. We are with you the whole way and we treat you as the individual that you are.


So, how long do you want to join us for?


Our offer to you...

We want this to be a beautiful match and spaces are limited, so we always ask that you fill out an application form and one of our team will get in touch to arrange a 20minute online discovery chat; think low-pressure coffee meet-up, probably with some of dogs or cats joining in too. If it sparks your interest, it makes sense to explore this further doesn't it?

You can read more about the process and the investment below. And that's precisely what it is, an investment, because you are worth getting to know.

The Vet Empowered Investment

What pricetag would you put on this transformation?

It's priceless, right?

We've made this immersive experience less than the cost of a 2 to 3-day surgery CPD course - and you get us for 6 to12months.

Plus, remember this can count as CPD.

More importantly, what would it cost you NOT to do this?

6 Months Access

Discounted pay in full 1111GBP

Alternatively this can be paid in 6monthly payments of 199GBP.

Which works out around 6GBP per day if you're self-funding this.

12 Months Access

Discounted pay in full 1888GBP

Alternatively this can be paid in 12 monthly payments of 169GBP

That's 5GBP per day, you can barely get a meal deal for that these days.

1:1 Upgrade

1:1 Calls can be added to the programme starting from an additional 149GBP and this can be discussed on the exploratory call.

Ready to join us?

You can read the process below or if you're one of those that just feel deep down this is right for them you can fill out our application form now. It makes sense to jump on a call and chat further if you're curious, right?

So,  what now?

1 / Have you read through all of the above?

So you've read through the above and you think you d be an awesome fit for what we do at Vet Empowered in the Signature Programme, the investment makes sense and you're ready for the next step. Amaaazing. We want to hear from you.✨

2 / Click the button and get that application form submitted ✨

We really value you and the members of our community too. We want to make sure we are a good fit for each other - hence us not having this programme immediately available to buy off the shelf without using being able to screen applicants. Spaces are often limited, but we do have a waiting list and intakes every 6weeks. So, the next step is to fill out the application form. Don't worry, we're not signing you up for good - you're just telling us you're seriously considering the programme.

I am ready to submit my application!!

3 / We get in touch with you and get the ball rolling

You might also wish to show your employer this Vet Empowered Brochure PDF to see how this could fit into your CPD budget. You don't want to miss this out as an option, so if you're unsure how to approach the conversation, let us know and we can help.

4 / The discovery call 

We proudly re-write society's definitions of professional - we won't expect you to arrive in a freshly ironed shirt or to have a rehearsed elevator pitch. We don't follow a sales script, and we're definitely not hard sell. We use this time to get to know you, answer your questions and connect. We won't lie, our pets will probably Zoom* bomb and we'll tell you about the amazing cake we just had for lunch. What we do take seriously is your confidentiality and your wellbeing; sometimes during the discussion, we might occasionally conclude a different type of support might be appropriate. Other times we both just know this is going to be awesome! You don't have to make a decision there and then, although many do.

*We can do phone calls if you'd prefer, but how would you meet our pets? 😭

5 / Official onboarding and we celebrate the heck out of it together...

It's a match! And we are here for it. We'd welcome you aboard into the community, get some techy bits out of the way and so you'd start into our incredible, transformational programme during the next enrollment. The dream! 🔥
