I am a patient-centred child psychiatrist who strives to deliver the best quality care, based on gold standard guidelines, to young people and their families. I have more than 10 years’ experience in child psychiatry, which includes working in liaison psychiatry, inpatient units, and community child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS), in both rural and urban settings. I continue to learn and regularly update my knowledge through conferences and academic meetings, and enhance my practice through feedback from young people and their families.
