TESTIMONIALS

"I'm very grateful to have done this course." - Dr Claire Sylvester

"I think the course helped me organise my thoughts and provided me with more direction. I felt like I was doing something proactive to help myself." - Dr Anabel Blake

"I can recommend Cathy to the whole profession. There is a great advantage in having a practice with a positive mindset. If you are an employer there is a $2.30 return for every $1 spent on mental health in Australian businesses ( rf. Beyond Blue). It is a $15 dollar return in mining and I suspect it is a lot more than $2.30 in veterinary practice. Give it a go, it will probably change your life!" - Dr Brian Mc Erlean
