Dr Shanahan, a Consultant Psychiatrist and Medical Director at Nightingale Hospital, tells Fry: “Most people aren’t very good at opening up and I think we have to, I certainly have to, get people to feel that this is going to be a comfortable time and a helpful time for them. One conversation can make all the difference for people.”
