The sessions made me focus on myself for a change.

I’m a mid-career GP and I would recommend The Bigger Picture 100%. I really value the new connections and friendships that have grown from our group. Jo was a fantastic facilitator for our discussions, and full of positivity and enthusiasm.

Dr Jo Hely

Hi, I ’m Jo.

As a doctor myself I understand the challenges that doctors face.

I’ve been through it all, from hospital administration and junior doctor education, to medical regulation and medico-legal roles. I’ve worked with hundreds of doctors at every level and in all specialties.

It can be really hard out there, and I believe you should acknowledge your own values when making career choices.

With my knowledge, guidance and support, I meet you where you’re at and help you make choices and prepare for your career in a way that works for you.

I’m here to tell you it’s possible to find what you’re looking for, and you have the potential to achieve great things!

As a career advisor with a specialised medical background, I help doctors find the right path, for them, and prepare and plan for a successful career – whatever success means to you.
