Maximize Your Success, Wellbeing, and Joy.

I’m Anne McNamara.

My Passion is to Coach Doctors and Medical Trainees, Supporting Their Growth, Resilience, and Success.

What is Coaching?

Coaching is “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential”. (ICF 2022)

The coach is not the expert in your life. You are.

During our coaching sessions I listen deeply, make focused inquiries, and offer thought-provoking and compassionate feedback. You see your thoughts through a different lens. You become more self-aware, clarify the issues, see alternate perspectives, identify barriers, and purposefully make choices to move forward in a way that is best for you.

Book a Complimentary Session

During your complimentary session, you will start to identify your main concerns, see alternate perspectives, and find a path towards your ideal future.

My Coaching Programs

Individual Coaching

My passion is to coach physicians through their everyday challenges to see their greatest potential, clarify a unique purpose, enhance wellbeing, and move forward through stress and challenge to success and joy.


There is often a gap between our intentions and the way others experience us. Others see our behaviours and label these as strengths or weaknesses. Knowing how we are perceived is critical. Using a strengths assessment tool fast-track your awareness and growth.

Workshops & Webinars

I create and facilitate customized immersive workshops and interactive webinars for Groups of Physicians, Leaders, and other Learners. Relevant real life stories support connectedness and enhance our ability to translate knowledge into action.


As a busy family doc, I was recovering from work-related burnout. Coaching sessions with Anne McNamara were great for my well being. I was able to focus on what really mattered. I am more empowered; more equipped to sustain balance in my professional and personal life. My colleagues and family notice good changes in me.

In a time of uncertainty and seemingly overwhelming systemic issues, Anne helped to reveal my strengths, convert them into superpowers and ground me in the leader that I am. Anne coaches in a thoughtful, insightful, and yet accountable way. She coached me to hone in on my leadership, lean into a new paradigm, and feel uplifted during the process. I would highly recommend Anne as a coach to anyone interested, and especially those holding both clinical and health care leadership roles.

Dr Corisande Baldwin

I had a fantastic first experience with coaching from Dr. McNamara. I cannot recommend her enough, particularly to other young female clinicians (though certainly she would make anyone feel comfortable and empowered). Within 6 months, I went from feeling that my work life was chaotic and out of my control to enjoying a sensation of control while also improving patient care and my quality of life. I will definitely be seeking additional coaching from her in the future and look forward to continued personal and professional growth. Many thanks, Dr. McNamara!
