6 Resilience Coaching Sessions for Doctors and Healthcare Professionals

The professional life of a physician can make huge demands on your time, energy and work-life balance. The pressures of working within the health service can lead to what has been dubbed a burnout epidemic. It can sometimes feel, well, overwhelming to say the least.

What if there was a way to maintain your motivation and reconnect with your passion for medicine?

Maybe you feel exhausted, unable to prioritise or even make time to think about what would make life simpler, easier and more enjoyable. Coaching is a way of carving out that time and space to invest in yourself, to work on areas that will help you to:

  • Build your resilience
  • Create sustainable high performance
  • Achieve your professional goals
  • Reignite your sense of purpose
  • Become unstuck
  • Create a better work – life balance
  • Learn to say ‘No’ with confidence
  • Manage difficult conversations
  • Become more grounded and focused
  • Develop emotional intelligence
  • Manage conflict with confidence and personal impact without being aggressive
  • Self regulate more effectively
  • Manage imposter syndrome
  • Feel more confident
  • Better manage issues that your work may be causing in your personal relationships
  • Know that you have the skills, tools and resources to wake up every day feeling good about what you do.

How does coaching for doctors work?

During our first session we’ll identify the areas that you would like to work on. We’ll work on a coaching action plan together at a pace that suits you. Some people choose to have just one session, others continue over a period of months. We’ll navigate your coaching journey with you and build coaching sessions around your commitments.

We coach over the phone, with Skype or Google Hangouts. Sessions last for 1 hour. The resilient doctor provides a reduced rate for healthcare professionals of £125 an hour.
