Are you a senior doctor in a leadership role or a public health leader and:
feeling unsure of your next career step
feeling lost, stuck, ‘at a crossroads’, or burning out in your career
dreading retirement or wondering about a part-time or portfolio career
considering a potentially significant change in role or career direction
facing a difficult career transition, or
wanting support to prepare to find a new role or establish a new venture?
My tried-and-tested Career Coaching Programmes have helped hundreds of senior doctors in leadership roles and public health leaders to move forwards with clarity and confidence. My approach is evidence-based, structured, and also bespoke to your unique needs.
We can focus specifically on your short or long term career direction, making big or small career decisions including making changes to your current role, securing your next role, creating a portfolio career, and/or planning your later life career or retirement.
There are five steps in my Career Coaching Programme: Plan, Do, Study, Decide, Act. I will tailor your programme to your specific circumstances to enable you to gain peace of mind and to choose the best way forward.

Career Coaching is more structured than Leadership Coaching as the focus is usually mainly on career direction and choices. However it can be part of a mixed leadership and career coaching programme: all my coaching programmes are bespoke to your specific needs, with clear needs assessment and goal setting at the start of our relationship together.
I am flexible around your unique needs, however an initial Career Coaching programme typically comprises 6 x 90 minute sessions (18 hours of CPD) as detailed below.
