I am a chartered psychologist specialising in career counselling. After completing my first degree at Oxford University, I obtained a fellowship to the University of Pennsylvania where I completed a masters in Educational Research. I then returned to the UK and did a PhD at the University College London Medical School. Since 1998, I've been working in medical education including setting up and running an NHS funded careers support service across 90 hospitals in London. In 2014 I left the NHS and set up CPD—Career Planning for Doctors—a specialist career consultancy for the medical profession.
