The Importance of Well-Being Coaching for Veterinary Professionals


“Effective health promotion strategies need to be implemented to reduce the risk factors for burnout and compassion fatigue, and should include efforts from the organizational, practice/collegial, and individual levels.”

Lovell, B. L., & Lee, R. T. (2013). Burnout and health promotion in veterinary medicine. The Canadian Veterinary Journal, 54(8), 790.

Why Well-Being Coaching?

Well-Being Coaching is the evidence-based, collaborative process that taps into your inner motivation and facilitates a change process through visioning, goal setting, and accountability to support lasting behavior changes!

Whether you're looking to build some positive health habits, emotional resilience strategies, improve your relationships, and more - we work as a team to help you clarify and work towards your vision of well-being!

I incorporate lifestyle medicine into my coaching experiences to help clients create their own pawsitive lifestyle prescriptions for behavior change. Healthy lifestyle behaviors play a very important role in promoting both emotional and physical well-being and provide a reciprocal, reinforcing link with positive emotions to help buffer the impacts of burnout (Rippe, 2020; Lianov, 2021)

Coaching is NOT therapy!

Therapy involves reflecting on experiences to process life events and emotions to treat mental health conditions, while coaching involves reflecting on experiences to gain information to help the client move forward towards self-directed goals.

As a coach, I don't tell you what to do! Instead, we work together as a team to brainstorm what is realistic for you and co-create your action plan. Working together as a team allows you to discover, clarify, and align your actions with your goals and values to design your ideal life!
