Group career coaching


“I really feel motivated for a change now, I just need to find the courage to do the first step and maybe a little plan to start with” VSGD member


Do any of these messages to VSGD sound familiar?….

“I'm really looking to come out of clinical practice and have NO IDEA how to find suitable jobs in my area using my skill set?? Is there a good starting point??”

“I work 5 days a week (with a few late evenings) with alternate Saturdays and OOHs. I love being a vet and I'm very passionate about what I do. I know that probably all sounds normal and I really don't want to sound like I'm complaining because I'm not that kind of person, but I'm beginning to feel quite stressed about work.”

“I really feel motivated for a change now, I just need to find the courage to do the first step and maybe a little plan to start with”

This is something that I have been wanting to the offer the VSGD community for a very long time. We have spent a lot of time acknowledging our challenges and opportunities as a community and this is the perfect programme to help people take action. I see too many members with so much potential locked inside them and I want to help unlock this with professionals who know how! So many people tell me they feel lonely in their career decisions. This group will provide coachees with peers they can relate to and be accountable to

Would you like to feel like this?

“First of all now when I'm settled in my new role (and I love it)I really wanted to say THANK YOU for your support during my rough times. I really needed someone neutral to give me back my self confidence and to ensure me that I'm not unemployable” VSGD Mentee to Ebony , Escalona founder of VSGD

“I needed help transitioning down a new career path as despite trying to progress myself I was stuck and making no progress and couldn’t see a reason why. Coaching gave me the confidence to get back out into the world and meet new people. It helped me understand the way different people respond in different situations and how to handle this. It reminded me how it feels to be truly excited about something again.” VDS Training coachee
