My personal statement:

I have worked privately and in the NHS for over 30 years with expertise in treating the spectrum of mental health conditions.  In my appointment, I start off, with a comprehensive assessment towards a shared understanding of health matters to inform treatment plans. I focus on nurturing the functional elements and empower patients to resolve problems.

I practice an integrated treatment model utilising medications and talking treatments. I am empathetic I believe each patient’s presentation is unique and tailor individual treatment plans. I enjoy my work and find it immensely satisfying supporting recovery, and return to health.
