Virtual consultations:

I have been working as a Consultant Psychiatrist since 1985. I have been practicing cognitive behaviour therapy since 2004. I started working in the NHS in 2004. I like to work collaboratively with patients and referrers.

I provide a combination of pharmacology and cognitive behaviour therapy so that my patients do not have to go to another therapist for talking treatment.

I am a medical member of Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service and I am a medical manager within the NHS as a Lead Consultant and have been Associate Medical Director from October 2017.
