Hawk and Dove Coaching
Find the Time and Energy to Flourish
I work with vets who feel exhausted from trying to do everything and doing none of it well enough and as a result are starting to fall out of love with the work that once felt like their calling. I help them take back control of their lives and reconnect with the passion they’ve lost.
Clare Knottenbelt BVSc MSc DSAM MRCVS
One of Many™ Certified Women’s Coach
Clare then moved to the University of Glasgow in 2000. Clare has two children and returned to work part-time after her first maternity leave. She became Director of the Small Animal Hospital when her children were both under 5 and then a Professor a year later.
Having taught students and worked in referral practice for over 20 years, Clare recognised the widespread need for support to manage the pressures of combining work and home life and wanted to find tools that could help women and men flourish and enjoy their lives.
Clare first discovered the One of Many™ tools in 2017 and through them discovered a new way of working that delivered a greater sense of achievement and happiness. Keen to share the tools with others, she trained as One of Many™ Certified Women’s Coach.
She uses her experiences as a working mum to help others who feel short of time and energy most of the time (STEM). She left the University in 2018 to set up her own veterinary oncology business and in 2019 established Hawk and Dove Coaching.

I’m braver, calmer, more patient, focused and grateful than before.
As Clare is also a vet, wife, mother and business owner, her advice and her knowledge of how to work through each aspect of my life and pull me up have been quite life-changing. Clare has an extraordinary way of asking exactly the right questions and bringing out the very best answers through her coaching methods.
I have loved every session. I can only recommend Clare so highly to other professionals to experience exactly what I have and carry such positivity forward in every avenue of my life.”
At the end of the programme I felt much less the victim and much more empowered to be true to myself and to ensure my needs are met. I would recommend this programme to any woman who seems to be stuck in a negative loop, but who wants to take control of their life back to make it better for them and those close to them.
There has been a lot of discussion over the need to train veterinary professionals to become more resilient
