I am a Consultant Psychiatrist.  I have been an NHS Consultant in Adult Mental Health for over 20 years.

I trained as a doctor at Bristol University. I also have a degree in Psychology and a Certificate in Psychotherapy.  I became a Member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in 1996 and a Fellow of the College a decade ago.

I make sure my patients receive a comprehensive assessment and appropriate treatment.  In addition to prescribing medication, my psychodynamic approach helps us to understand how your past experiences relate to your present difficulties. This can often be the key to recovery.

I look at the question of what to expect when you see a psychiatrist for the first time in this two-minute video –
