Wellbeing and resilience for the veterinary profession

Learn how to have a different relationship with stress and resilience through self care and awareness. This two-module course is designed with one intention - for you to connect with yourself - professionally and personally. To have a better relationship with stress and challenges, there must be awareness, consciousness and an understanding about who you are and how you show up in the world. CHOOSE how you respond to life and whatever happens - instead of just reacting to it!

The course

The exercises that are included with each lesson help you to be honest with yourself as you explore, and be constantly aware of your thoughts, beliefs, stories, emotions and feelings. So often we subconsciously have disempowering thoughts and beliefs - being aware of them allows us the opportunity to re-author them so they are empowering. The exercises also help makes what is internal and interior (thoughts, beliefs, feelings, emotions, stories, judgements, contradictions) become external and exterior - when the words and emotions exist outside of the body and mind then there is space to truly see them - then they can transform.


This is an online self-directed course comprising of videos and exercises.


Module 1 covers topics related to wellbeing: (1) Self-care; (2) Thoughts; (3) Stories; (4) Self-awareness; and (5) Self-worth.

Module 2 covers topics related to resilience: (1) Dealing with difficult emotions; (2) Stress management; (3) Acceptance and control; (4) Mindfulness; and (5) Mindset.


Belinda Noyes in her own words...

I am an inspirational writer, counselor, coach, mindfulness enthusiast, relaxation therapist, thought provoker, soul seeker, mother, wife... and many other things, but mostly I am a perfectly imperfect human being who is doing her best to live a conscious and meaningful life. I live in the beautiful Wairarapa (New Zealand) with Tony, my husband of 18 years who is the local veterinarian. We have a 14 year old daughter, a 5-year old son, a one-eye dog, a large breed cat (who I think has dwarfism because he is tiny) and a stray ginger cat with a neurological condition that lives under our house. I am happily embracing middle age, unlearning everything that doesn't serve me while creating space for self kindness, compassion and acceptance - it is a daily practice, most days I succeed, but some days I don't.
