Consultant Psychiatrist in Child, Adolescent & Adult Mental Health
Dr Loh is dual accredited with specialist registrations in General Adult, as well as Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. As well as his work with Psychiatry-UK, he is employed as an NHS Consultant Psychiatrist & Medical Lead in a community mental health (clients age 0-25 years old) team.
He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, trained by the UK Adult ADHD Network, a member of the Faculty of Medical Leadership & Management (FMLM), and Association for Child & Adolescent Mental Health (ACAMH). He is registered with the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and is in good standing for CPD.
He favours a patient-centred therapeutic, developmental and integrative approach to assessments, underpinned by the Dynamic Maturational Model of Attachment & Adaptation. (DMM). His diagnostic assessments are based either on the International Classification of Diseases (ICD 10) or Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM 5) categories of psychiatric diagnoses. He uses a holistic assessment of the possible biological, psychological and social (ie biopsychosocial) contributing factors to the origin of current difficulties to formulate diagnoses.
Dr Loh is non-judgemental, empathetic and compassionate towards all his patients while using evidence-based treatments (including appropriate medications) which are compliant with NICE guidelines. He assists and collaboratively works with his patients in exploring their mental states and emotional difficulties which would usually lead to a better understanding of themselves. The individualised treatment care plan would therefore be working towards a sustained recovery and enhancement of the patient’s wellbeing as well as their personal development. Besides English, Dr Loh is also fluent in the Malaysian & Chinese (Cantonese & Mandarin) languages, although his clinical reports are only available in English.
Dr Loh has a special interest in the assessment and treatment of ADHD conditions
