I studied medicine after my first degree in Psychology and Physiology and working in the Oxford Department of Experimental Psychology.
I was a GP in East Oxford for nearly thirty years and was a tutor, trainer and appraiser. I was involved in the training, supervision and development of undergraduates and postgraduates for many years. I set up a Balint group for qualified doctors some years ago and still attend regularly.
I started coaching with the PSU in 2010 and am qualified in Time to Think coaching. As well as coaching I am the Associate Director. I have recently written the Vital Signs series of guides for doctors and medical students seeking support and am acutely aware of the particular pressures on the medical profession.
I believe in supporting people to make their own choices to lead the life they choose. Working with the talented PSU team is a privilege.
