I take a holistic and recovery-focused approach in the assessment and treatment of adult mental health difficulties. I am experienced in managing mental health problems faced by adults at all stages of adult life, and have dual accreditation on the General Medical Council (GMC) specialist register in general adult and old age psychiatry.
I have a special interest in stress related conditions; sleep disorders; mood disorders including mood instability and bipolar affective disorder; difficulties related to sexuality; personality problems; trauma; generalised anxiety and health anxiety; obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD); and psychotic illnesses. I also assess and treat adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and attention deficit disorder (ADD).
I offer an individually tailored treatment plan which combines the latest evidenced-based pharmacological therapies with a psychological understanding of your emotional or mental health problem. My aim is to help you successfully achieve and maintain emotional stability and wellbeing.
“After many years I decided to pluck up the courage to see a private psychiatrist about my problems with attention and concentration. After a very thorough but gentle assessment, I was given a diagnosis and treatment plan from Dr Liam Parsonage. I am very glad that I found myself in front of Dr Parsonage and I can say that the overall experience felt reassuring and safe, carried out in a bright and breezy consulting room at a relaxed pace. So far, my treatment plan has made a huge difference to my overall concentration levels. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner.”
