As a psychologist coach she believes that coaching provides a way forward for us in healthcare. She is going to share some of her experience coaching doctors with us.

  • How do doctors use coaching?
  • What is the Art of medicine? (I will talk briefly  about compassion, emotional intelligence and regulation, mindfulness, community)
