Dr Megan Joffe

Megan is a Chartered Clinical Psychologist (BPS) with dual HCPC registration as a clinical and occupational psychologist. She is a facilitator, a coach and workplace mediator. She works mainly in the assessment and development of senior people and their teams. She is interested in how the individual and the system influence one another.

Megan has for the last 10 years been working exclusively with doctors and is interested in their development from medical student through to retiring clinician. She works with doctors individually, and with groups of clinicians and their teams to help them resolve difficulties (professional, interpersonal) that might interfere with patient safety and their own health and well-being. Megan is an assessor for the National Clinical Assessment Service (NCAS). Her doctoral research focused on medical identity and the tensions doctors experience when they take on managerial roles. Her work in the health sector is informed by 20 years in the private sector working for large organisations as an employee but latterly as an external consultant. This work included periods abroad in the US, South Korea and Guyana and consulting assignments in the retail, financial, airline and oil sectors.
