MEET OUR COACHES
Raise your own wellbeing, accountability and values. Be your number one priority.
We believe that coaching is one of the best ways to raise a person’s capacity, including doctors.
This belief is backed by 30 years of academic research into the impact of coaching for workers around the world and on Sharee Johnson’s experience coaching doctors since 2014.
Coaching has been shown to be an effective way for doctors to learn, to grow their skills, develop insight and to take better care of themselves.
All of which means better, safer care for patients and a more fulfilling medical career for doctors.
And… a much more sustainable health system.
It’s important that you have confidence in your coach.
The most impactful coaching happens in a high trust, high candour relationship.
But coaching is an unregulated industry.
How will you know that you are working with a coach who can actually help you meet your goals?
Finding the Right Coach
At Coaching for Doctors we are making it easier for doctors and leading healthcare professionals to find the right coach to help them develop.
Our coaches are experienced independent professionals.
Most of them are credentialed with the International Coaching Federation (ICF) or the Association for Coaching (AC), which means they have invested significant time, energy and money into learning how to be an effective coach.
You can feel confident that we have done the due diligence required to find a great coach for you. Our Coaches:
- have trained and been mentored specifically in the skills and competencies of coaching.
- understand the difference between coaching and mentoring, counselling, supervising, teaching and consulting.
- are diverse in their backgrounds and experience so you can find the right fit for your needs.
Choose a coach who is also a doctor or choose a coach who’s lived work experience is outside of medicine. There is merit in both choices.
Every coach we endorse meets our high standards of training, ongoing professional development, and experience.
Are you ready to meet own your high standards in your life?
Prioritise the time and safe space you need to determine what you really want and need in your life, in your work.
Coaching can help you:
Raise your capacity and achieve your goals.
Be well. Well doctors are better doctors, safer doctors.
Have better patient outcomes & patients who report better healthcare experiences.
Feel more fulfilled and craft a more balanced life.
Raise your self awareness.
Develop your capacity for human centred leadership.

Invest in yourself today!
Coaching for Doctors is here to help doctors be the best they can be in terms of wellbeing and performance for three reasons:
- Doctors are humans who do better and feel better when they are seen and heard. Doctor wellbeing is inextricably linked with their capacity to perform well at work.
- Patients achieve the best possible healthcare outcomes and health experience when their doctor is well.
- The healthcare system as a whole is more sustainable if healthcare workers are well.
Feel better, maintain clarity, deliver better healthcare, find more balance.
It's so easy to start working with one of our coaches.
Simply book a complimentary 30 minute conversation (opening next week).
Once you establish you are a good fit you can go ahead and prioritise your coaching. Invest in your future.
