The Heart-Centredness of Medicine

From Burnout to Brilliance

Discover with me the tools of compassion, beat burnout and reconnect with yourself and your loved ones.

I see you.

You’re a heart-centred practitioner who is not thriving in healthcare.

You feel burnt out.

You have lost your soul purpose in life and in work.

You feel overwhelmed in your current situation and scared about the future.

You worry you’re becoming distant from your partner, friends, or family.

You are not alone, but you’re lonely.


After years of study and hard work, you’re wondering, “Should I leave healthcare?”


That is the question I asked myself in 2019 as a pain physician.

I was burnt out and fell hard.

My family and friends no longer understood me…

I started second-guessing myself and became more irritable, angry, and frustrated.

At work, I didn’t feel valued for my efforts. I was constantly exhausted.

I started to withdraw and avoid socialising.

I felt alone.

Where once I was enthusiastic about medicine, I was now cynical.

And I couldn’t see a way out.

Does this sound familiar?

You judge yourself harder than anyone.

You struggle to prioritise your own well-being.

You suppress your own emotional pain and suffering.

You think self-compassion is self-indulgent.

That’s exactly how I felt.

I didn’t think I was worthy of self-compassion. I saw it as a sign of weakness.

What saved me is this truth:

All humans are deserving of compassion.

You DESERVE self-compassion.

Discover with me the tools of compassion, beat burnout and reconnect with yourself and your loved ones.

Hi, I’m Dr Olivia Ong, the Heart-Centred Doctor.

I’m a Physician, Professional Speaker, Author and Leadership Coach for doctors and medical professionals. 

After a severe car accident in 2008, I was told I would never walk again.

After 4 agonising years, I walked again despite all odds.

My journey to walk again taught me a very powerful life lesson: self-compassion.

Self-compassion transformed my life.

I have written my first book called The Heart-Centeredness of Medicine, which Jack Canfield wrote the foreword for.

I became a leadership consultant and run programs helping doctors transform their lives from burnout to brilliance.

I speak on physician burnout, resilience and compassion leadership.

I appeared in media regularly such as Yahoo Finance, ThriveGlobal, International Business Times, Australian Business Journal, Influencive and Auspreneur and have been a guest on multiple podcasts such as KevinMD and Everyday Medicine.

Most importantly, self-compassion helped me build a life that gave more time at home with my amazing husband John, and my two children, Joseph and Jacqueline.

Come join me in From Burnout to Brilliance!

It’s a cohort-based program where you will discover the tools of self-compassion. You’ll work alongside like-minded healthcare practitioners on the same journey as you.

We’ll be working through my new book, The Heart Centredness of Medicine over the course of 4 weeks.

With these tools, you will walk into the heart-centeredness of life that you truly deserve. You will reconnect with yourself and your loved ones.

And you’ll be a better doctor, nurse, or healthcare professional for it.

If you’re anything like me, right now you’re thinking, “I don’t have time! I am too busy!”

Of course, you are. That’s what modern healthcare is doing to all of us.

But it’s not sustainable. If you don’t learn how to take care of yourself, you’re going to burn out.

And when you do, you’ll no longer be able to serve your patients, let alone your loved ones!

So, please, come and join me!

Next round starting on 17th January, 2022
