Today see's the start of our 'INTRODUCING...' series, an opportunity for you to meet our growing team at The Joyful Doctor. Our founder, Dr Caroline Walker, is first up...
.

Who are you?
.
"I am a doctor who has had lots of mental and physical health problems of my own over the years. I work as a Doctors’ Wellbeing Specialist and I live in Surrey, England with my partner and our two children. I founded The Joyful Doctor in 2017 to help support doctors across the world with their own wellbeing and career choices".
.
.
What is your purpose/passion in life?
.
"I honestly feel like my experiences of struggling with mental and physical health problems as a doctor have led me to a place where I can really help other doctors who are struggling. It may sound really corny but I feel like the work we do through The Joyful Doctor is the reason I am on this planet. It makes me want to jump out of bed in the morning (only metaphorically speaking! I still love the snooze button!)".
.
.
What makes you joyful?
.
"I think there are lots of things that bring me joyful moments in life - but the most common ones are when my kids say or do something really special or funny, when a doctor-client or patient tells me how much better they are feeling and when I take my twice yearly trip to the spa for a couple of nights all by myself...".
.
.
Tell us about a time when you didn’t feel joyful?
.
"Gosh, there are so many times to choose from to be honest! Most recently I felt quite self-critical when I was asked a question in front of an audience of doctors and I felt I didn’t do the answer justice".
.
.
What helped?
.
"Remembering that I don’t have to be perfect! That it’s important not to focus on one little ‘negative’ thing and miss all the wonderful positive things. It helped to imagine what my various friends or supervisors might say to me. And it helped that I had a date with a friend which distracted me with lots of other much more interesting and important things to think about and laugh about!" blush

Caroline is available for 1:1 coaching, speaking, training, and for media and press requests.
