Professional profile

Dr Woolley trained at St Mary's Hospital Medical School specialising in psychiatry at the prestigious Maudsley Hospital and Institute of Psychiatry in London. He undertook a further degree in psychology at University College London, achieved MRCP at the Royal Free Hospital London, and gained additional experience in psychiatry in Sydney, Australia.

A variety of posts working with leaders in the field, have provided Dr Woolley with a wide range of expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of many conditions; from anxiety and depression to schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, using both evidence-based medication and psychotherapy.

He has been awarded a number of prizes for clinical and academic research, and works in the NHS as consultant psychiatrist with South West London and St George's Mental Health NHS Trust, developing an innovative early intervention service working with young adults at the point at which they first present with symptoms of mental health problems. In 2007 he was the BUPA foundation award winner for clinical excellence - a national award open to all medical specialties.

He has also been actively involved in research at the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London, leading to a number of publications in high-impact peer reviewed journals. Again, these reflect his wide ranging areas of expertise and interest, from chronic fatigue to OCD and schizophrenia, and from treatment trials to neuroimaging.

Dr Woolley offers a thorough clinical assessment and will then discuss individually tailored treatment options and develop a management plan in conjunction with the patient. He welcomes referrals across the broad range of general adult mental health, and has particular expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
