    I went to see Dr Ian Nantu due to panic attack's and depression. I was in a bad way, but Dr Ian Nantu made me feel very comfortable with his cool and composed attitude. He listened intently and could nail my issue's immediately. On my second appointment with him 2 weeks later, I was feeling much confident and panic attack's have reduced tremendously. He also worked out a plan with me to travel back to my family in Malaysia, that he was confident would solve most of my issues. Thank you Dr Ian Nantu and I would highly recommend him.

    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.
