Meet your Joyful Coach...

Sara Al-Atassi

Dr Sara Al-Atassi


As well as a medical career now entirely devoted to supporting, developing and treating doctors, I am also an experienced coach holding an ILM Level 5 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring.

I have vast experience of coaching doctors through all stages in their career: from pre-medical school, medical students, doctors in training, GPs, Consultants and clinicians in senior executive and management roles.

Being a GP, specialised in treating doctors, and with additional roles in GP professional support and development, gives me a unique knowledge and understanding of the intricacies of doctors’ lives, the particular paths we navigate, and our specific challenges, obstacles and barriers; whilst my career as a coach gives me the skills to empower doctors to overcome these, make positive changes, develop their scope and realise their potential.

With my specialist clinical interests in mental health, occupational health, and doctor’s health and wellbeing, I have seen the transformative power that coaching can have on people’s lives, helping people through challenging times, life adjustments, ill health, feeling 'stuck' and transitional phases in their careers.

I offer executive, career, personal and professional development coaching.
