Career Coach for Doctors

Lisa Stone

Over 10 Years of Experience Working with Doctors in Career Transition

About Lisa

Lisa has over ten year’s experience of supporting medics to transition in their careers. Previously, she worked as the Head of the Careers team with Kent, Surrey, Sussex Deanery having already developed a wealth of experience over 10 years of supporting doctors during their career transitions.

Lisa’s philosophy is to work with clients using ‘unconditional positive regard’ as the foundation stone of her practice. Carl Rogers, a humanistic psychologist in the 1950s, first developed this concept. What is means is that Lisa works from a place of having utmost respect for her clients.

Lisa works in a holistic way, which helps clients who want to change to develop their own learning and strategies for personal growth. Key topics of exploration include life purpose, quality of relationships at home and work, feelings, career and health.

Lisa is qualified in the use of psychometric assessments by the British Psychological Society, and also trained in the Type Dynamics Indicator.
