Professional development for doctors in difficulty

All of us enter medicine wanting to make a difference. But sometimes people lose the way, take short cuts, or fall out with the team around them. What is that costing you? In a worst case scenario, it can lead to disciplinary hearings or loss of licence to practice. Getting back on track is challenging. My coaching can contribute towards achieving acceptable practice and getting back on track.

Coaching for doctors in crisis

I provide one-to-one coaching tailored towards your specific needs and challenges. This may include development of insight, decisions about changes in practice, improved interpersonal skills, improved leadership, and better emotional intelligence. For doctor career rehabilitation coaching to be a success, you need to be ready to explore your practice in some detail, including being open to discuss the deficiencies that have led to your current predicament, with the aim of becoming a better doctor in the future. My areas of expertise include emotional intelligence, communication skills, interpersonal skills, as well as coaching that offers a high degree of challenge. In addition to remediation-focused coaching, I also offer supportive coaching (see coaching for doctors) and career coaching (see career coaching).

Overcoming stress and anxiety during medical disciplinary proceedings

I offer support for doctors facing disciplinary action, supportive coaching for suspended medical professionals, coaching for doctors facing performance issues, and specialised coaching for doctors facing GMC proceedings. And after any investigations I can help with coaching for personal and professional growth after disciplinary action, or rebuilding confidence and trust after suspension through coaching.
