Career Coach and Doctor

Denise Tritton

Supporting you to find a career path that works for you

About Denise

I was a Paediatric doctor for over 20 years working in the NHS and during that time I also supported doctors as a tutor, educational supervisor and latterly as a coach. Having left clinical medicine in 2017, I now work solely as a freelance career and performance coach, mainly with doctors. I have had a rather unconventional career path myself as I’ve always tried hard to balance my personal life, family and work.

This has not always been easy and at times I have felt unsettled.

I am a trained coach and have a PG Cert and ILM Level 7 in Executive Coaching. I use my training and personal experience in medicine to help those facing the challenges of the modern medical career find a path and healthy work-life balance that suits them, whether it be inside or outside medicine or a bit of both! I will help you explore what is important to you, giving you space and time to work out what is best for you.

I hope that if you feel despondent or uncertain about your career this will enable you to unlock your wishes for the future.

How I Work

I have worked with a range of doctors over the last 3 years from medical students, trainee doctors and SAS doctors through to senior consultants with NHS managerial experience.

I use a combination of value and strength-based coaching alongside psychometric tools, if appropriate, to help you gain insight into yourself thus enabling you to see the pathway to fulfilment more clearly. I am a certified MBTI® (Myers Briggs Type Indicator) practitioner.

I can help you with all aspects of career and personal development including:

Career Dilemmas

Leadership Coaching

Communication Skills

Values and Strengths

Personal Awareness

Interpersonal Skill


I offer sessions face to face or via video link depending on where you are located. Take a look at my website for more information
