Nurse on the frontlines

Submitted by Boris Vásquez, PCC – Coaching para sanitarios
Coaching provided to doctors, nurses and health personnel

Medical and health personnel have been the ones who have borne the most responsibility in times of COVID-19. I have a brother and sister who both work in medicine in Peru, and the levels of stress and wear on them are significant. 

Since March 2020, we have held pro bono coaching sessions to support:

  • Management of countertransference to the suffering and pain of others
  • Techniques for personal self-care of the doctor, nurse or support staff and how to maintain healthy routines
  • Support in team management
  • Mind training

We have had many hours of special work, and we feel that this is our place as coaches: supporting those on the front line.
