"The best aspect is outpatients - pleasant atmosphere for patients and families with good access."

Specialises in

I have been a Consultant Psychiatrist since 2001. I practice in Adult and Old Age psychiatry. I have worked for the Priory Group and NHS since 2001 and still practice with the NHS and Priory Group.

I specialise in depression, anxiety and memory patients. I provide medication advice and also have access to psychological services for CBT and Mindfulness. I undertake assessment for ADHD and addiction patients.

My management of mental health patients focusses on advising on non medication strategies before advising on medication considerations. Shared decision making with patients is a core ethos to my practice.

I see about 200 patients per year.

I am an international renowned researcher in mental health and lead large scale clinical trials and complex intervention design and evaluation. I have peer reviewed 100 publications, including H Index 26, The Lancet, BMJ, JAMA, Cochrane, BMC.
