Do you want to be able to keep doing what you do for the long haul without burning out or sacrificing your health or your relationships?
Thriving On Call
My 14 session signature program is for midwives and other helping professionals who have to manage their wellbeing without benefit of regular sleep patterns. You can avoid burnout and set yourself up to thrive by taking more control now.
Sleep deficits and disruptions wreak havoc on our bodies, affecting our gut health and digestion, hormones, mood, immune system, mental capacity and of course energy levels.
Yet many helping professionals feel so stretched already that we find ourselves sacrificing our own self care and nurture. We keep putting others ( clients, kids etc) first. We too often cope with our lack of sleep in ways that feel like they keep us going but actually pour fuel on the fire of the effects of sleep loss.
Balance is not a reasonable or achievable prospect on a daily basis in the on call life. But working together we can develop habits and rhythms that support a much better overall work / life / health integration.
Over our months together we will dig deep into where you are now in your life to co-design your personal protocols for food, lifestyle, stress management and more; and strategize together to implement them in a sustainable way.
The support and accountability of working with a coach can make the difference between good intentions that drop exhaustedly to the floor only to make you feel failure, and real lasting change that becomes easily maintained habit over time.
In a Mayo clinic RCT, physicians who received coaching over 6 sessions had substantial and significant reduction in emotional exhaustion and overall symptoms of burnout, as well as improvements in overall quality of life and resilience. (1)

Your Whole Life Wellbeing Coach: Anna Jean Bradley reluctantly retired from clinical practice after nearly 40 years of midwifery. She experienced the on call life in both primary and shared care models, working both part time and full time in urban and rural practices & hospitals from Jamaica to Nunavik. Throughout, she carried a passion for learning and teaching about whole life health, coping with stress, what brings us happiness and more. After recovering from burnout in the early 2000's she sucessfully returned to practice for an additional 20 years. She learned tools to help that in turn helped her keep going. However, she frequently struggled to implement what she knew and maintain good habits when exhaustion was in the driver’s seat. As she studied to earn her coaching certifications and learned more about habits and human behaviour change, she came to believe that she might still be practicing herself if she had had the support of a coach.
Fortunately, Anna Jean is excited about and deeply committed to bringing the potent mix of evidence supported information, skills, & tools with customized goal setting and consistent long term support to helping other professionals enjoy a long and thriving career.
