Patrick Hudson is a coach, specializing in personal life coaching, marital & relationship coaching, time management, conflict resolution, malpractice support, burnout and anger management for individual physicians and organizations.
These programs are designed primarily for physicians and Dr. Hudson 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, Dr. Hudson 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 is a Fellow of the National Anger Management Association and uses psycho-educational tools rather than therapy or medication for helping people with anger issues.
Coaching for :
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, a walk and coaching in a park works well. Dr. Hudson is available to individuals and organizations for coaching and consultation. Dr. Hudson is based between Santa Fe & Albuquerque, NM, USA and works internationally. He maintains a home in Europe 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 Dr. Hudson does not work as a counselor, psychotherapist or psychiatrist.
