What I do
My general approach is primarily to listen to the person's story and put
their symptoms in the context of their whole life.
After this detailed assessment I give my diagnostic opinion and recommend a treatment package including therapy and medication.
I offer psychodynamic psychotherapy and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) myself and also prescribe medication where appropriate.
If other therapy is indicated I refer people to a therapist in Central London, to the Priory Hospital Roehampton or Capio Nightingale Hospital.
I will do a detailed assesment interview and give you my opinion of your
diagnosis. I will then discuss with you the best treatment options taking
into account your preferences. I can provide you with ongoing treatment
or refer you to another therapist or service depending on your needs.
If you need day therapy or inpatient treatment (including 28 day alcohol treatment programme) I have admitting rights to the Priory Roehampton and the Capio Nightingale Hospital and would remain the consultant responsible for your care.
I assess and treat the following psychological problems:
- Mood disorders including depression, bipolar disorder
- Obsessive compulsive disorder
- Anxiety disorders
- PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorders)
- Alcohol problems
- Adult ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder)
- Personality disorder including borderline personality disorder
