#31: Changing Careers and Following Your Wisdom with Dr Giles P Croft

In this episode, we speak to Dr Giles P Croft, a psychology graduate and former NHS surgeon who stepped aside from clinical practice for a decade to explore a number of career paths, including health informatics, cycling journalism, public speaking and high street retail with his wife. He is now back in the healing profession, tackling the root cause of stress and its many harmful effects by leading clients to a better understanding of the human experience.

You can connect and find out more about Giles’s work here:





We talk about:

➡ Why and how did Giles change his career from being surgeon to coaching people?

➡ How can we  can all build our resilience for the future?

➡ Can we plan and predict our lives? What happens when we let go of plans and start living our lives?

➡ What we really want is on the other side of fear. Giles had a fear of public speaking and after overcoming his fear he realised he really enjoyed it.

➡ How can we establish a deep connection with our authentic selves and other people?

➡ What is intuition and what happens when we start following it?

➡ For the end, Giles reminded us that all we have is here and now. All those fears, worries and predictions about the future or resentments and hurts from the past are here to remind us to return back into the present moment.
