About

I'm an award general psychiatrist who works with adults. I am trained both in psychopharmacology (using medication) and in cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), a type of psychotherapy (talking therapy). I am a Principal Clinical Research Fellow at University College London where I lead a research group. In the NHS I work at the Traumatic Stress Clinic at St Pancras Hospital and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. He regularly lecture locally and I have been invited to lecture internationally. I teaches students in medicine, psychology and the neurosciences, as well as doctors undertaking specialist post-graduate training in psychiatry.

I am particularly interested in treating depression, psychosis and schizoprenia spectrum disorders, post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD) including Complex PTSD and dissociation, anxiety disorders and people who struggle with regulating their own emotions and maintaining stable relationships. I have an interest in neuropsychiatry. I am also interested in helping people who are neurodiverse, have difficulties with attention inlucluding ADHD and people who are on the autistic spectrum.

I lead medical research studies and I have published over 100 articles in leading peer-reviewed journals including Nature, the Lancet Psychiatry, World Psychiatry and the British Medical Journal.

I undertook my medical degree at the University of Oxford, before working in London and the Channel Islands. I previously worked as an air ambulance doctor - which I loved. I went on to train in psychiatry at Charing Cross Hospital and later became a Medical Research Council clinical research fellow at Hammersmith Hospital where I did a PhD in Clinical Medicine. I have built up a wealth of experience in the NHS, including community mental health, acute in-patient psychiatry, treatment-resistant psychosis, severe mental illness, crisis resolution and helping people with personality disorder diagnoses. I have advanced training in enhanced cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). I have a certificate in Psychopharmacology from the British Association for Psychopharmacology. I am an approved clinician under section 12 of the Mental Health Act.

Explanation

Dr Michael Bloomfield is very understanding and patient. His approach at helping me solve my problems with anxiety greatly helped me. Dr Bloomfield taught me skills so that I would be able to handle anxiety myself in the future. He also was very patient, explaining the same concept multiple times in order for me to properly understand them. Dr Bloomfield's explanations are always very clear, especially thanks to the use of diagrams/drawings. My experience with Dr Michael Bloomfield was excellent.
