Working with us


Why work with us?

Due to Dr Nadine's research and work with veterinarians, we have an intimate knowledge of the demands placed on you.  We only work with veterinary professionals, which we believe sets us apart from others.  In fact, one of the things we are continuously told by our clients is that we "get it" - we understand what the industry is like and the significant mental health issues that are having an impact on those within the industry.

We are a leading authority in the field, and are yet to find any other psychologists with the level of experience we have in working with the veterinary industry.

We help veterinary professionals like you get on top of stress and conflict to avoid burnout and suicide - we are the people to call when you are fed up feeling fed up and are ready to reinvigorate yourself.

​Please contact us directly for a discussion about how we can help you.

Executive Coaching & Mentoring

Perhaps you are one of the fortunate ones who is not currently struggling with a lack of wellbeing.  If this is you - and you want to maintain your wellbeing, or if you just need some direction, guidance, and mentoring, then executive coaching may be just what you need!


Traditionally coaching is more focused on assisting you to identify and achieve your goals, and does not entail counselling.  Dr Nadine's unique coaching services incorporate the evidence-based strategies from her training program, as well as maximising her knack of optimism and positivity and help you reach your goals effectively.


When you work with Dr Nadine in a private capacity, some of the benefits you will receive include:​

  • receiving one-on-one support from a specialist and leading authority on veterinarian wellbeing

  • working in a discrete, positive, supportive, confidential, non-judgemental, and encouraging environment

  • taking a deep dive into identifying your passions, dreams, and goals, and setting you up for the best chance of achieving these

  • providing you with proven strategies to maximise your chances of success

  • assisting and supporting you in regaining your sense of wellbeing and enjoyment of life

  • sessions held online in a private and confidential environment via Skype or Zoom.
