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 has worked as a vet for 25 years starting in mixed general practice before doing a residency at the University of Edinburgh where she gained a Masters, and the Diploma in Small Animal Medicine.

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’ve so valued this experience with Clare. She has supported me to grow, feel more trusting and confident in myself. I can see the woods for the trees, the importance of my vision and mission over and above the limiting beliefs and stuff, literal and metaphorical, that keep me pinned down in supposed safety!

I’m braver, calmer, more patient, focused and grateful than before.

“When I started Clare’s coaching course as a vet, mother, wife and business owner with a strong sense of imposter syndrome, I never imagined the impact it would have in my life.

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.”

Since undertaking the programme, I have noticed many changes in me, and with my home life. There is much less tension at home, and I am able to enjoy my life and my family much more. These changes have also filtered through to work, and I have a much clearer idea about where my life is headed and what I need to do to achieve my goals.

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.
