Cathy Warburton & ‘Jelly’
Dr Cathy Warburton
BSc, BVMS, MACVSc, MVS, TAA,
Dip Pos Psych and Well-being
Cathy graduated from Murdoch University in 1989 as a veterinarian. She worked as a clinician, trainer and manager in private, university and corporate practices for 25 years, mostly in the pressure cooker environment of Emergency and Critical Care.
During her career, Cathy progressed from being very animal and clinical focused to becoming more and more interested in the people – the clients and her colleagues. Her experiences as a manager, along with her own trials and tribulations around mental health, created a passion for training and empowering people to increase their psychological resources and well-being.
Cathy completed a Diploma in Positive Psychology and Well-being and further training in coaching before starting Make Headway with the aim of having professionals support professionals to advance veterinary mental health. Cathy is also a Mental Health First Aider.
Cathy is based in Melbourne, Australia. She is committed to doing the right thing by others, lifelong learning, leading a balanced, sustainable life and finding joy in the little things.
