Coaching & Mentoring Doctors

The service I provide offers coaching for doctors to help them to develop, to improve and to feel good about themselves and their work. 

It is important to me to make a valuable contribution to society and I choose to do this by working with doctors, who have a direct impact on the health and wellbeing of others. My work gives me great satisfaction — and gives my clients great results.

A National Health Service background

Screen Shot 2015-08-31 at 10.37.46I worked in the NHS for nine years and am married to a secondary care consultant. This gives me crucial insight into the service that you, as doctors, provide and the personal pressures you face.

Prior to working as a coach, I held various positions in the NHS. These ranged from Head of Communications to Organisational Development Lead. I also held independent contracts with clients such as the Department of Health and NHS East Midlands. This experience gave me an in-depth understanding of how the health service is administered and how its people operate.

One of the biggest learning points for me was that I was not an extrovert as I had believed for six years, but an introvert. I remember feeling as though Alexis had provided me with my real birth certificate – that so much about the way I work and feel suddenly started to make sense. This too helped me to better understand others around me, and become more open to different working styles and personality types” Medical Educator.

The insights from Myers-Briggs into my own style and how this may interact with others was really useful and not something I expected to gain when beginning coaching. Secondary Care Doctor.
