Coaching Doctors

It's been an interesting journey on how I came to be the expert for coaching doctors who are dealing with a health challenge. It started with becoming the best life coach & motivational speaker for people with Multiple Sclerosis!

Then, I heard about this specialized certification coaching program, specifically designed around training the life coach how to coach the Doctor client. I thought "Wow.. what if I were to combine both my expertise of coaching people with a Chronic Health Condition with the knowledge I would gain from becoming a Certified Life Coach for Doctors!" A light bulb went off in my head! Afterall, if you are a doctor, you know that dealing with a health challenge yourself can feel ten times worse than treating your patients that have the health challenge (that's if you even accept the fact that you have a health issue!). So, who's there to help you? How do you maintain a positive attitude when life throws you a health curve ball?

I got to thinking that if I can help you, as the doctor, maintain your usual energy level and keep your spirits up, even while dealing with a health challenge, you will definitely be that Invincible MD that you usual are with your patients. Isn't that what you want? Afterall, you are held on a pedestal by your patients and by society in general. There's a reputation that goes along with being a Doctor. A Neurologist that I used to go to just left his practice, due to his illness. We believe that he has Parkinson's Disease. I heard that his patients started transfering their records to another Doctor in the office without even speaking to him about it. How do you think he felt when this started to happen. Many patients don't feel comfortable going to a doctor who has obvious signs of a health challenge. As a doctor, you are supposed to be unstoppable, invincible, and God-like! But, let's get real, you are human too! Doctors get sick. Doctors have life challenges! Doctors have relationship issues! --- just like the rest of us.

I am so psyched to help you, the Doctor, to reduce the stress of dealing with a health challenge and to teach you concrete steps to maintain a positive attitude, increase your overall energy level, and enrich your personal & business relationships, in the face of dealing with a health issue. Anything is possible. If anyone knows that ... you should. Sometimes you perform miracles. You heal people.

Here's my question for you... are you aware of the power of your thoughts? That's one of the key steps that I will be working on with you when you hire me as your personal coach. I have always been told that my energy level is "off the charts". I motivate and inspire people beyond their wildest dreams. If I can do this for many Doctors, then I am impacting many patients as well. For if the doctor shows up to his/her appointments feeling empowered, despite the challenges he/she is facing, then the patient wins as well. The patient will get the best of that Doctor and in turn will benefit health-wise. So, there you have it. My motivation for coaching doctors. Healing the doctor -- what a concept! It's a win-win for all.

Try this health affirmation on for size: "I'm a Lean, Mean, Healin' Machine!" I say it every night before I take my drug therapy for Multiple Sclerosis! Do not underestimate the impact of the words and the way you feel when you say it!
