Dr Chrisvan Koen

Dr Chrisvan Koen is a general adult psychiatrist working in both the NHS and private practice.

He has been working with the Kent and Medway NHS Mental Health Trust since 2009 where he worked as clinical lead and subsequently assistant medical director for the community based services. He is currently based in Medway Community Service (Canada House) where he continues to provide NHS support and care.

He has been in private practice since 2011 where he gained extensive experience in the treatment and management of mood disorders (especially treatment-resistant depression and medication management), anxiety disorders (general anxiety disorder (GAD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), trauma and phobias), social communication problems (including Asperger syndrome) and complex psychiatric and psychological conditions as seen in self-harming, personality difficulties and eating disorders. 


Dr Koen trained at the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa and completed his first degree in Medical Science in 1993.

Dr Koen qualified as a General Practitioner in 1997 and enjoyed a 2 year career in private general practice. He then moved to the UK in 1999 where he started his training in general psychiatry as part of the North London training scheme.

Dr Keon then completed his higher training in the South East of the country and obtained membership for the Royal College of Psychiatry in 2006.

Research Interests

He has a special interest in the assessment and management of individuals with self-harming behaviour, personality difficulties and eating disorders.

Dr Koen has therefore developed an integrated approach with local psychologists and psychotherapists in providing an holistic approach in the management of this very specialist group. He also has experience in the assessment of autistic spectrum disorders (Asperger's and Autism) and works closely with clinical psychologists specialising in these conditions.
