Originally from England, Dr.Hudson is now based between Santa Fe & Albuquerque, NM, USA and works internationally. He maintains a home in Europe, near Hamburg, Germany. He has worked on both sides of the Atlantic, both coasts and the mountain west of the United States. His work has involved surgery, medicine, medical ethics, counseling and IRB/research analysis. He has worked for governments,  large companies and been self employed in private practice. His own journey has taken him through the joys and sorrows of marriage, divorce, parenting, parental loss and retirement from surgery. 

As Jung reflected “most of the people who came to see him were not … mentally ill …(but) … searching for meaning".This realization moved Dr. Hudson toward the field of existential and life coaching were his assumption is that the client is normal rather than, as in therapy, where the client is assumed ill. The relationship in coaching is one of equals  and the coach does not diagnose or treat illness.

These programs are designed primarily for physicians and those in healthcare who are otherwise well functioning people and need to achieve their personal or professional goals. Dr. Hudson has special expertise in the coaching of  physicians and their families. He also works with dentists, healthcare workers, nurses, mid-levels, lawyers, business executives, hospital administrators, government workers, administrators, university professors and most other professionals.  

His approach is existential, which means that the focus is on understanding our clients in a practical yet philosophical way. Existential coaching draws on the work of existential and phenomenological thinkers and in some ways is related to philosophical consulting.


Dr. Hudson is a Member of the International Coach Federation (ICF) and a Member of the  International Association of Coaching (IAC).
