About me

I am a Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist. I qualified as a medical doctor in 2002. I also trained in psychoanalytic psychotherapy (2000-2004).

I further trained in psychiatry and became a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in 2011. My Higher Specialist Training in Child and Adolescent Mental Health was completed at St Mary’s Scheme, London, which is affiliated to Imperial College, London. 

I’ve worked within a variety of NHS settings with children and adults, including people with learning and physical disabilities.

I have particular expertise in the assessment and management of neurodevelopmental disorders - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders (ADD/ADHD), Autistic Spectrum Disorders or Tic disorder. I assess children under the age of 18 in a specialist ADHD clinic within the NHS.

In my everyday practice I treat young people presenting with a range of psychiatric disorders – depression, general anxiety, phobias, OCD, eating disorders and psychosis.

I have experience in assessment and treatment of psychological trauma, including post-traumatic stress disorder and I trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing).

My training combines medical knowledge with experience in child development, family work, and individual therapies. I also use an attachment as well as psychoanalytic theory perspective to understand problems in the child-caregiver relationship. My work often combines psychiatric diagnosis and treatment, medication if indicated with talking therapy.

I am skilled in helping children and young people who are experiencing school-based problems.
I have experience in the assessment and management of young people whose behaviour has brought or is at risk of bringing them to school exclusion.

I can also offer to see parents/carers on their own to help understand where the difficulties the family is experiencing might be coming from.

As a clinician I aim to engage with young people and their families to gain an understanding of difficulties and together find a way forward.

 

Referrals

fot-referrals

Before arranging an appointment I would like to receive a referral from the GP or another doctor (paediatrician) as I need professional information about a child’s health. Referral letter also helps me determine if I am the right person to see the child.

If you would like your child to be seen but you do not have a referral from the GP or another doctor this can be arranged. Please get in touch.

Please bring to the appointment: medical letters, copies of assessments completed on your child as well as (if you are happy to do so) school reports.

Diagnosis/Treatment

fot-treatment

A first appointment lasts about an hour and a half. I like to see children in the presence of their parents and alone as well. Quite often, to obtain more information, I need to arrange a follow up appointment with parents only.

Once an assessment has been completed I will make recommendations. I may suggest contacting school but would not do it without your consent. If indicated I would offer talking therapy and/or prescribe medication, for example to control symptoms of ADHD or depression.

I may suggest a referral on to a clinical child psychologist, or psychotherapist. If medicines are to be involved, then I will manage these myself, often jointly with the G.P., or paediatrician.

With your consent I will write a summarising letter back to the GP / referring doctor following the consultation.
