My Experience

I am a Consultant Psychiatrist specialising in the assessment and treatment of all forms of major mental illnesses. I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and hold a Diploma in Psychological Medicine.

I practised as a Consultant Psychiatrist in the NHS for over 20 years and have been the Medical Director for an NHS Trust. I was the Medical Director for the Priory Hospital, Woking, and later Responsible Officer for an independent hospital.

I am engaged in private practice based in Surrey and Berkshire. I am a Cardiff University accredited Expert Witness and carry out medico-legal work.

My Philosophy

My philosophy of care is to help patients to understand their illness and equip them with knowledge and certain skills to manage their illness and lead a normal life.

I adopt a holistic approach to psychological illness with interactive therapy using mindfulness, CBT, anxiety management and medication.


I provide consultations for a wide range of emotional and mental health problems:

  • Generalised anxiety disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • ADHD / Adult
  • Mood disorders - depressive illness
  • Addiction disorders
  • Psychiatry of older adults
  • Mental capacity assessments

I follow NICE guidelines to provide evidence based treatment. I work with a range of psychologists and therapists in that area to provide wider therapeutic options.
