Coaching and professional development for allied health professionals

Optimize Health Solutions (OHS) has the right expertise with international and New Zealand experience to support all aspects of career coaching and professional supervision for allied health professionals.

Our tailored services range from ‘just in time’ coaching for job applications through to formal professional supervision as well as tailored support for clinicians working in high pressure situations.

Challenges - We understand that allied health professionals operate in a range of stressful health care settings, managing high case loads, and can suffer from a lack of confidence or unclear direction on what steps to take to take charge of their career pathway or to overcome challenging work situations. Some get as far as the interview stage but are not able to secure the role for that next step up the career ladder.

How OHS works – We combine HR expertise with in-depth current health sector knowledge to provide personalised career coaching and professional supervision for allied health professionals (dietitians, occupational therapists, speech therapists, physiotherapists) and senior nurses.

Our goal is to motivate and inspire allied health professionals to take on leadership and specialist roles. We strive to achieve the best for all our clients:

  • building on your individual strengths
  • identifying opportunities for professional development
  • providing support for dealing with workplace challenges and
  • encouraging you to set aspirational goals.
