Professional profile

I am a consultant psychiatrist in Brighton, practising at the Montefiore Hospital. I work as a part-time consultant liaison psychiatrist with a special interest in the interface between physical and mental illness. I believe in psychological therapies for the treatment of mental illness, including depression.

I brought the Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) to Sussex. This is an innovative, safe, effective and well-tolerated, non-invasive treatment for patients with depression, including those who haven't benefitted from antidepressant medications or can't tolerate them due to side-effects or wish to treat depression without medication. rTMS is approved by NICE as effective and safe and the effect is long lasting.

I also have extensive medico-legal experience as I have also worked in forensic psychiatry and forensic medicine.
