    Dr Lawrence completed his training in Medicine and Surgery at Birmingham University in 1980, he then went on to become a Member of the Royal College of Medicine and then the Royal College of Psychiatrists. He is on the GMC Specialist Register for Psychiatry. Dr Lawrence has extensive experience in the understanding and treatment of mental illness, having worked as a Lecturer and Senior Lecture in Psychiatry, completed his psychiatric training at the Maudsley Hospital and he became a Consultant in General Adult Psychiatry at St Thomas's Hospital in 1990.

    I have been under the care of Dr laurance and the team at 96 harley street for over the last 2 years ,firstly I am extremely grateful for the help from Robin and all of his team who gave me the precious  gift of  hope , they cared for me and played a massive role in keeping me alive and saving my life from a severe and very complicated mental illness.Whithout this help I would not be here today. The care expertise and professionalism has always  been second to none but more importantly the kindness , compassion and  patience has meant allot to me. In this day and age where patients can be sometimes just treated as another number this has never been the case. Dr laurance is some one who will not only listen but who  will work with a patient together around there recovery  ,he is extremely solution oriented and he has extensive  first hand knowledge and experience in the field of psychiatry at a very high level .Robin's team are highly organised ,proffesional and caring towards the needs of there patients. Robin is a Dr who is willing to go to any lengths to get a patient well and he  never gave up on me despite me wanting to give up, he kept me going and he gave me hope and no amount of money could buy this. Without his help and all the amazing people at harley street  I would not have survived or got this far. I am still on the journey and very lucky to have a Dr  and team who's willing to do this jouney with me so that I am not alone .For this I have the upmost respect and regard for Robin and his team Thank you so much !

    I wish I came across Dr Lawrence years ago. He has changed my life. He is extremely knowledgeable, non-judgmental, has no ego whatsoever (Which is rare for doctors of his caliber), can truly empathise with me. If you are serious about changing your life and finding your path to health snd happiness don’t look any further. Go see Dr Lawrence, I have sent friends to see him and they all say the same thing! He is just fantastic. Thank you Dr Lawrence.

    After many years of battling with my mental health, I finally agreed with my husband that it would be a good idea to visit Dr Lawrence. I have found him to be warm, accepting and encouraging. He’s provided insights that I hadn’t realised before, and has given me hope after many years of struggle. I’d highly recommend him.

    Dr Lawrence was approached by an independent , to review my apparent mental health issues that had evolved as a consequence of issues arising after 24 years of employment, within the NHS ,at a particular foundation trust! His professional clinical observations, resulting in a balanced ,evidence based overview of my status will result in an overwhelmingly positive and clinically appropriate outcome ( although still ongoing!) I believe, certainly after a 24 year career as an Associate Specialist within the sphere of evolving HIV Medicine, that Dr Lawrence"s cinical insight will result in an extremely advantageous response to my plight! i would recommend his service to any individual in psychiatric despair!

    I think Dr Lawrence is a very good psychiatrist. He can understand what's wrong with you quickly and the solution is very direct. I gained a lot of help from Dr Lawrence and if I have chance to go back to London, I would like to visit him again.
