I qualified in 1981 and spent my professional life studying and practising psychiatry. I was lecturer in Psychological Medicine at the Medical College of St Bartholomew's Hospital in London and subsequently became a Consultant Psychiatrist based in Redhill. I left the Health Service in 1995 and have practised exclusively in Private Practice since that time. I therefore have had long experience of understanding and treating psychological problems. I work with a network of well qualified therapists who undertake a range of psychological therapies such as CBT and EMDR. I would be able to pre-authorise, for insurance company purposes, therapy if it is appropriate.
I have a specific interest in the misuse of alcohol but the main areas of my work are anxiety disorders and particularly psychological problems following difficulties at work.
