I have been working in private practice for almost 10 years in central London, and in Psychiatry for 17 years. I entered the field because I am fascinated by people, the nature of mind and the close relationship between crisis and positive growth and recovery.

I aim to combine these elements in all my clinical work:

- A person-centered approach building a strong therapeutic relationship

- A scientific approach, taking account of the best available evidence and expert consensus guidelines (e.g. NICE)

- Sufficient knowledge of the whole person to situate the clinical problem in context, and draw on the person's strengths

- Enhancing the person’s ability to self-manage their condition, with or without medication

- Specialist medication management when appropriate

I am not a purely "medical model" psychiatrist, and I am even a bit "anti-psychiatry". The biological, psychological, spiritual and social dimensions are all of importance and interact. Collaboratively I try to work towards a common understanding that works for the individual.

I particularly enjoy working 1:1 with people struggling with addictions, mild or severe, and with those interested in psychological growth following a mental health crisis.
