How I can help you
I am a very experienced, UK-trained, Consultant Psychiatrist. My focus is on high quality, caring, empathic, holistic assessment and treatment. With a talent for setting patients and clients at ease, I have a warm and caring manner. A thorough, attentive history and evidence-based, holistic treatment approach, allow me to achieve the best possible results in the shortest possible time. The views and feelings of my patients / clients are respected and taken into full consideration in treatment planning. I look forward to helping and guiding you, your partner, friend, relative or client, no matter what the problems are. I have 27 years’ experience of assessing and treating patients / clients from 16y upwards, with all forms of mental health issues, including lifestyle problems, burnout, relationship difficulties, domestic abuse, tension, stress, worry, anxiety, panic attacks, agoraphobia, fear of flying, insomnia, sleep disorders, adjustment reactions, adjustment disorders, health anxiety, somatization disorder, low mood, dysthymia, depressive disorder, mood swings, cyclothymia, bipolar 1, bipolar 2, paranoia, unusual ideas, strange experiences, hearing voices, psychosis, eating disorders, OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), trauma, PTSD, personality problems, personality disorders, memory and concentration problems, ADHD, ADD, and alcohol problems.
Why I am specialized in this field
I come from a family with a large number of mental health problems. I was dismayed by the standards of care they received and how patients, relatives and carers were not listened to, or their concerns and wishes were ignored. I became passionate about providing a very high standard of compassionate, empathic, non-judgmental, high quality mental health assessment and care. I truly want my patients / clients to be and feel listened to, understood and cared for to the highest professional standard.
What I say to people who feel nervous or have concerns about therapy/assessment
Everyone has mental health issues of some sort, at some point in their lives. It is so common, but most people do not speak out about it. Many suffer in silence, hoping it will get better by itself, as the weeks, months and years go by. Their mental health symptoms impair their quality of life, education, work, relationships, sleep and physical health. If left untreated or inadequately treated, some mental health conditions deteriorate with time, becoming less treatable, and eventually treatment-resistant. This includes depression, bipolar disorder and psychotic conditions. The longer the sufferer endures their mental health problems without adequate treatment, the more they accumulate psychological baggage, life problems, relationship difficulties and career failures. By seeking effective professional help now, you can start to reverse these trends and be the person you want to be, living the life you want to live.

I would love to connect with you!
