About me

MediCoach is a specialist coaching service for the professional development of trainee doctors looking to maximise their potential.

The courses and services have been developed and designed for trainees who want to access coaching either independently or through their Trainee Support Services. Coaching is particularly suitable for Trainees who want to develop themselves, their confidence, assertiveness, and leadership skills, or for those who want help preparing for exams. MediCoach offers highly successful bespoke courses for MRCGP candidates wishing to pass CSA exams.

MediCoach have worked closely with the Professional Services Unit at East Midlands Deanery and have an excellent reputation and success record. Why not find out what everyone's getting excited about. Get in touch today to arrange a relaxed, no obligation chat, with no pushy sales talk (I hate all that stuff!) - it's the one telephone call you'll make that could really make a difference.

We offer:

  • face to face coaching ( by the hour, 3 hours or the day);
  • 1:1 sessions via web-conferencing, so we get to see each other without the hassle of traffic jams and parking problems;
  • or by phone.

Try whatever combination works for you….. and see the results for yourself.

Training, qualifications & experience

Sarah Palmer developed and owns Medicoach. Her background is in corporate law and having worked for a large multinational pharmaceutical company for many years she took a career break to have a family. Whilst on maternity leave the company was sold, so she took this as an opportunity to do something completely different.  Sarah took a 3 year training course to become a coach and launched MediCoach, a specialist coaching company helping trainee doctors develop their careers.

The East Midlands Deanery have been working with Sarah for over 6 years, referring trainees to her for coaching on a number of challenges including confidence building, becoming more assertive, leadsership skills, organisational skills, juggling work/life balance (the demands of a heavy work load - family life - study - on calls - eportfolio - audits etc), adjusting to cultural differences, and exam preparation.

MediCoach have a particularly strong reputation for preparing GP trainees for CSA exam.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
