Dr Anne Cremona
Consultant Psychiatrist, General Psychiatry
Dr Anne Cremonahave has been a consultant psychiatrist since 1985, having trained at the Maudsley Hospital, Charing Cross Hospital, and St Thomas’s Hospital. She has been a Member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists since 1980 and was appointed as a Fellow in 1997.

From 1997 to 2006 she was a consultant psychiatrist at the South London and Maudsley Trust, based at St Thomas’s Hospital, in general, adult psychiatry and liaison psychiatry.
Dr Cremona has many years of experience with treating most psychiatric problems, including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, OCD, and food issues. She also has specialist expertise in the fields of alcohol and liaison psychiatry, which is psychological problems occurring with physical health problems. She has a particular interest in stress in the workplace, and in women’s mental health issues, having been the founding Chairman of the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ Women in Psychiatry Special Interest Group.
She takes a very detailed history at the first appointment, as she feels that listening carefully to the patient’s story is the key to treatment, together with choosing the most appropriate medication or therapy for the best care for each individual. She particularly enjoys working with patients on a shared decision-making model whenever possible, and with a multi-disciplinary approach. She has practised privately for many years both at the Nightingale Hospital London and in the city.
