Communication - a key skill in practice
  1. Christine Stobbs

    Christine Stobbs is a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist. She has extensive experience of working in the public sector, and with charities and commercial organisations.


GOOD communication skills do not always come naturally and, very often, vocational training covers this topic only very briefly, if at all. Dealing with difficult people and situations is a large part of any vet's job and, says Christine Stobbs, being able to communicate in an appropriate way will bring benefits in all areas of practice life. Here, she aims to stimulate readers to think about the way in which they communicate with their clients, staff and colleagues.
