I have your back.
As well as working with clients of veterinary practices, I offer support to all those working in the veterinary profession. These are challenging times, and the emotional cost can be very high.
I have a special understanding of the profession having worked in a small animal practice for 10 years alongside my partner at the time - Jim - who was a veterinary surgeon.
This was when vets were on-call 24 hours a day, and at the beginning there was only Jim and myself running the practice, and my roles included general and theatre nurse, anaesthetist, X-ray developer, cleaner, laboratory assistant, kennel-maid, receptionist, and puppy-party organiser.
We were also the first practice in Scotland to send bereavement cards, of which I'm very proud.
So I know from experience about working during the day, attending a 2.00am emergency call-out, assisting with a 5.00am Caesarean, providing in-patient care, running a home, and looking after my daughter.
And because I know the profession, the rewards and the challenges, from both sides of the desk, I can offer knowledgeable support and care to everyone working in the veterinary profession, during these challenging times - and into the future.
I'm working online at present, but am very happy to work face-to-face when the time's right.
Working with individuals, I can also visit practices to talk with different groups, and offer communication-skills and self-care workshops
My approach is non-judgemental, empowering, and supportive.
I'll support you, and I'll help you to help yourself.
