Professional profile

Availability - Shawfair: Saturday 9am-1pm alternate weeks.

I have worked as an NHS Consultant Adult Psychiatrist in East Lothian and at The Royal Edinburgh Hospital since 2009. I believe passionately that mood and anxiety disorders are treatable and complete resolution of symptoms is my goal for patients under my care.

Whilst my main expertise is prescribing medication to treat these illnesses, I am also careful to think holistically about each individual and to tailor their treatment plan accordingly. I have a particular clinical interest in Bipolar Spectrum Disorders. I have previously worked at a specialist diagnostic service for adults with Autistic Spectrum Disorders.
