Patrick Hudson is a coach, specializing in personal life coaching, marital coaching, conflict resolution, burnout and anger management in Albuquerque and Santa Fe, NM.
His program is designed primarily with professionals and executives and he has special expertise in the coaching of physicians and their families. His approach is existential, which means that the focus is on understanding the human predicament of his clients in a practical and philosophical way. Existential coaching draws on the work of existential and phenomenological thinkers and in some ways is related to philosophical consulting.
During his years working as a therapist and counselor, he found that few of his clients were “ill” but most needed help identifying their goals and finding a path to them. To that end he has taken additional training to help his work with individuals using a coaching, non-medical approach. For example,he became a trained Gottman Marital Educator so that he could educate couples to resolve their issues themselves. He also become a Fellow of the National Anger Management Association using psycho-educational tools rather than therapy or medication for helping people with anger issues.
Most coaching can be done on the telephone or in the convenience of your office (additional charges may apply). Dr. Hudson is available to individuals and organizations for coaching and consultation. He is based in Albuquerque, NM and in Europe he maintains a home near Hamburg, Germany.
As a coach, he may refer clients who appear to have significant emotional problems to a psychotherapist or psychiatrist. These practices are different from his coaching work and he does not work as a counselor, psychotherapist or physician.
