    I recently had my initial assessment with Dr Nnatu and so far I find him professional, non judgmental and easy to talk to. He is a great listener and is quite thorough and appropriate with his questions. Dr Nnatu has a very calm and compassionate manner. I look forward to my next session.

    Dr Nnatu had an instantly approachable bedside manner. He made me feel really comfortable throughout the whole consultation and was very kind. At no point did I feel judged or ashamed which is a huge thing when discussing mental health and I think that needs to be recognised as a huge credit to Dr Nnatu and his approach. His explanations were clear and he talked me through my experiences and my next steps, making sure I understood the process.

    Really great. Went into deep detail during the consultation and encouraged me to expand on things that I’ve never spoken about, which have subsequently helped me to understand how I’m feeling a lot better.

    Dr Nnatu is very easy to talk to. I felt instantly comfortable opening up to him. He never rushes through appointments. He thoroughly listens and takes into account all aspects of your feelings, as well as your medical history. He is kind, patient and collected. For someone who has found the process of seeking mental health help incredibly difficult, Dr Nnatu has put me at ease within a very short amount of time. I am incredibly grateful for all his help.
