Professional Coaching for Doctors

".....Professional coaching may be an effective way to reduce emotional exhaustion and overall burnout as well as improve quality of life and resilience for some physicians....." Researchers have found professional coaching may reduce work-related stress [more on the research here].

Over the past few years doctors connecting with a professional coach has increased. As a Doctors' health service we have seen the benefits of our doctor-patients adding a professional coach to their own self-care health and wellbeing team.

Dr Tabitha Healey - Executive Health Coach


Trained as a Medical Oncologist, Tabitha was a founding partner in Adelaide Oncology and Haematology, and they grew from a 2 person practice at Calvary North Adelaide to a 22 doctor practice across 5 sites with a clinical trials unit and advanced trainee program. During her 20 years in that role Tabitha developed an increasing interest in the importance of self care and wellbeing in regards to her own personal performance but also in the recovery of her patients. In 2019 Tabitha switched her focus to Executive Health Coaching, working predominantly with doctors and healthcare leaders to prevent or manage burnout and optimise health, wellbeing and performance. Tabitha developed a program called Restore, to educate and support patients during and beyond their chemotherapy, introduced complementary care practitioners to our day centres and developed a Cancer Reconditioning Program at Calvary Rehab, recognised and rebated by private health insurers. Tabitha now focusses on her work as an executive and personal coach.

"Blending leadership experience, business acumen, medical knowledge and a passion for wellbeing I work with high performing individuals to maximise engagement and fulfilment in their personal and professional lives."
