I am a general adult psychiatrist working in both the NHS and private sector in London. Over the years, I developed a broad range of clinical and research expertise working in Italy, UK and USA.

I completed my medical education in Italy and my postgraduate qualification in General Adult Psychiatry in London.
I have e deep interest in research and I worked for four years at the National Institute of Health, (NIH) Bethesda, USA.

Clinical Experience:

I have experience in the assessment and management of different types of Psychiatric disorders including Anxiety
(e.g. panic Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), Mood Disorders (e.g. Depression and Bipolar Illness), Psychosis (e.g. Schizophrenia), and Personality Disorders.

I worked in multiple psychiatric services within NHS including the Early Intervention Unit for Psychosis (South London and Maudsley NHS trust and South West London & St George’s Mental Health Trust), Home Treatment Team, Community Mental Health Team, and the Neuropsychiatric Department at St George’s Hospital (South West London & St George’s Mental Health Trust).

Since 2013, I have been appointed as substantive Consultant Psychiatrist at South West London & St George’s Mental Health Trust.

I am committed to Continuing Professional Development and am appraised every year by the Royal College of Psychiatrists (Certificate of good standing) and the GMC.

What to expect:

During the initial consultation, I discuss with you the issues you are concerned about, your expectations from the
treatment and ask about your past psychiatric history, medical history and personal background.

It usually takes one or two sessions (depending on the complexity) to be able to discuss all the issues as well as your
therapeutic goals.  

I work in close collaboration with you to establish a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs. At the end of the initial consultation, I will consider the feasibility of a diagnosis if any and advise/prescribe medications if needed.

After the first assessment, I advise on whether one or more follow-up appointments might be appropriate and on potential psychological interventions that could be effective for you.

I do face to face consultations in Central (Harley Street) and South (Elephant &Castle) London as well as skype sessions.

I do also psychiatric reports, including medico-legal reports.

Research Activity:

I believe research is fundamental in improving our ability to understand and treat mental health problems.

I am very interested in understanding how genetic and environmental factors can jointly predispose to psychiatric disorders.

I started my research activity in 2004 working as postdoctoral visiting fellow at the National Institute of Health, (NIH) Bethesda, USA. At NIH, I focused my research interest on addiction and personality disorders. As a result of my work, I obtained a PhD in neurobiology of affective disorder in 2008 and published multiple articles for international scientific journals.

In London, I continued my research activity working as Clinical Lecturer at the Institute of Psychiatry Kings
College London.

I am a London-based general adult psychiatrist working both in the NHS and in private practice. I have nearly 20 years’ experience in psychiatry, and a broad range of expertise in most psychiatric and psychological difficulties.

I am an experienced and compassionate Adult consultant psychiatrist with over twenty years of psychiatric practice. I worked as a consultant psychiatrist in the NHS, the independent sector and the Ministry of Defense.

Currently, I run my own private and medicolegal practice. I have practising privileges at Spire hospital Portsmouth and Best Practice South in Cowplain, Hampshire. I am also one of the mental health practitioners at the Surrey Healthcare Clinic in Guildford, Surrey.

Prior to my psychiatric training, I worked in general medicine and surgery. This invaluable experience formed my overall clinical management of patients, with emphasis not only on mental health symptoms but also physical health issues. I remain interested in new developments and aim to keep up to date with medical progress. This ensures that my patients benefit from a holistic assessment and treatment to maximise their recovery chances.

I completed my initial psychiatric training at a highly regarded Guy’s and St Thomas’ training scheme in London, then went on to complete my specialist training in forensic psychiatry at equally prestigious and competitive North Thames training scheme in London and Essex. I successfully completed my training and was awarded the Membership of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in 2005, and the Certificate of Completion of Training in 2008.

I have additional training in psychotherapy - in 2010 I successfully completed the intensive training course in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy that was organised by prominent American psychologist Marsha Linehan. Since then, I have applied
these psychotherapeutic skills in my practice.

I am on the General Medical Council specialist register in Forensic psychiatry. I am approved under section 12(2) of the Mental Health Act as having special experience in the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders.

During my NHS and independent career, I was always involved in teaching and supervision of other doctors and mental health professionals. I was actively involved in the management and clinical governance process. I held a position of a Clinical Director at one of the independent hospitals.

For the past five years, I have been an accredited medical appraiser and provided medical appraisals for the members of the Independent Doctors Federation. As an appraiser, I am involved in regular Quality improvement audits and attend regular training events for medical appraisers.

When making decisions about treatment, I apply the best current evidence- based information and guidelines to help my patients. This includes NICE guidelines, advice from the BNF (British National Formulary), the Royal College of Psychiatrists and other relevant sources.
