I have worked as a consultant psychiatrist for 10 years, specialising in General Adult Psychiatry, that encompasses depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders (including OCD and PTSD) and psychotic disorders. In addition I regularly treat addictive disorders.
The majority of patients whom I treat require only outpatient treatment from myself and, often, a clinical psychologist. When needed I am able to admit patients into Day Treatment and Inpatient Care in a local private hospital.
I am on the senior leadership team of 2gether NHS Foundation Trust, which provides mental healthcare in Gloucestershire and Herefordshire; I work as as an Associate Medical Director and Clinical Director, in addition to my consultant role.
I am an Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at the University of Bristol, and am the Regional Adviser for the South West Division of the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
