Veterinary Wellness and Professional Resiliency Coaching > VETPeers Group Coaching


Building social connections is vital to building our compassion resilience, and therefore serves as a strong buffer against compassion fatigue. Over the course of this six-week Program you will be guided through a process of self-discovery and self-improvement to build your overall wellness alongside your peers - other veterinary care professionals.

Each VETPeer Group will include a Certified Compassion Resilience Coach and 4 to 6 participants.

Sessions will be held on Tuesday or Thursday evenings starting at 8p ET / 5p PT (or on weekend mornings) for 6 consecutive weeks.

Discussion with your Coach will include your motivations for pursuing a career in an animal caring profession, your unfulfilled dreams or results, and roadblocks to achieving your vision of an ideal result.
