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.

Geography does not matter. We are located between Albuquerque and Santa Fe. We provide services for Albuquerque and throughout NM and the United States. 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. 

Dr. Hudson is available for lectures and workshops for physicians and administrators throughout North America and Europe. He speaks on burnout, anger management, malpractice support and prevention, and the support of the medical marriage or any topic that might interest your group or organization. Organizations interested in contacting Dr. Hudson for  speaking engagements, workshops and referrals for their members or  employees, can use the form on this page or call 505-280-4284. Please call for an estimate of fees for workshops and full-day rates for groups and organizations.


The essential nature of coaching is positive and forward looking. The relationship between the 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 coaching 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, surgeons, 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.
