Coach: The Physician Wayfinder

Coaching Genre: Mindfullness/Mindset

I help physicians learn to embrace the beautiful space between the world of medicine and way we choose to show up in it.

What I do as a Coach

-It is getting to a place of knowing that not everything we have believed about ourselves is true – and we have AGENCY, we have choice in how we show up in our lives and in how we choose to tell our own stories.  That is profoundly empowering.

-When one of my clients, a pediatrician,  began a session in the midst of the pandemic and vaccine misinformation, and was ready to quit her job in no uncertain terms – and at the of our 45 minutes she said she felt “lighter” and was “…ready for another week actually”.  That meant everything.

Client successes will be in their willingness to explore how things could be different and be open to considering different possibilities.

This client gives insight into how it is working with me: “You are truly thoughtful. You are provocative (in a good way), challenging (in a really great way) and clearly care about your clients. Your ability to truly understand a female, mother, physician perspective is priceless.”

My Topics

  • Physician life (ie: business coaching – changing jobs, running a practice, charting, office personnel disputes, etc)
  • Work-life harmony
  • Parenting
  • Health matters (personal or with others in family)
  • Relationships
  • Medical litigation support
  • Infertility support
  • Residency programs/mindset work
  • Reconnecting our minds and bodies
  • Feeling “stuck”
  • “I should be happy-itis”
  • If you are human, and have something on your mind, we can coach on it together 🙂

My Ideal Client

The physicians who gives heart and soul to their work and somewhere along the journey might have lost some pieces of themselves… -their love for themselves -their patience -their self compassion -their inner peace -their joy -their freedom -their love for their work -their self-confidence -their humanity -their harmony

What does client success looks like?

Client success looks different from one client to the next - it would be hard for me define! At the beginning of our session, we spend time finding out what it is the client wants to talk about and what it is he/she wants to be different when we are done with our time together. So, success would be partnering with the client to help them create their own best life - whatever that looks and feels like to them.

About the Coach

Dr. Dympna Lynch Weil, MD, FACOG is originally from Long Island, New York. She received both her Undergraduate and Medical Degrees from NYU before completing her Residency at Stony Brook University in OB/GYN and Reproductive Medicine. Dympna is a board-certified Obstetrician-Gynecologist with a long standing interest in physician wellness, most recently in clinical practice as an OB/GYN Hospitalist, with experience in academics, as well as in private practice caring for women in the community in all stages of their lives. In the Fall of 2020, a constellation of symptoms presented and forced Dympna into stillness. In the stillness, Dympna found an opportunity to reconnect with herself and began to cultivate self-compassion and kindness. She also started to dissolve thoughts that had caused her years of suffering, learned to listen to the wisdom of her body, and slowed down without succumbing to self-criticism. She deepened her own healing and self-care while training and certifying as a Martha Beck Life Coach with the intention of maintaining her own joy despite her life’s changes AND serving others, especially her colleagues in medicine. As the Founder of The Physician Wayfinder, Dympna seeks to serve others as they learn to navigate their own seas of suffering – burnout, change, or whatever challenge life has presented them which keeps them from living their purpose, with ease and joy. Dr. Weil lives in beautiful Upstate, NY with her husband, daughter, and their two awesome doodle dogs – walking distance from the lake, because near the water is her happy place. Outside of her coaching practice, she can be found reading, writing, meditating/tapping, or bringing her daughter back & forth to swim practice :) One day, she hopes to get back to teaching Irish dance when her vestibular recovery allows ;) Dympna is a Certified Martha Beck Life Coach and ICF Certified at the ACC level.
