It has been said that,“the best way to predict your future is to create it”. This is the philosophy underlying much of the coaching at Coaching for Physicians and is fundamental to our work with doctors. As with most coaching the aims are simple – to build awareness and encourage responsibility.
Your coaching can be done almost anywhere but is most common on the telephone or in the convenience of your office or home (additional charges may apply). Sometimes, when the weather is good, coaching with a walk in a park works well. We also have a private, quiet office suite in uptown Albuquerque where you can talk with Dr. Hudson one on one.
The essential nature of coaching is positive and forward looking. The relationship between the physician coach and the client is one of equals and, unlike therapy, the coach does not diagnose or treat illness. Coaching for Physicians provides one-on-one coaching services for individual doctors as well as for organizations. You can connect with us using our contact form or by telephone at 505-280-4284.

If you are a doctor, Coaching for Physicians is here to help you. These programs are designed primarily for physicians who are otherwise well functioning and need to achieve their personal or professional goals. Dr. Hudson has special expertise in the coaching of healthcare professionals, including physicians, dentists, mid-levels, nurses, administrators and other healthcare workers or organizations. His approach is existential, which means that the focus is on understanding his clients in a practical yet philosophical way. Existential coaching draws on the work of existential and phenomenological thinkers and in some ways is related to philosophical consulting.
