I'm interested in helping people with a wide range of mental health disorders. I will always try to understand someone’s problems in the context of their wider lives and support them in becoming experts in managing their own condition and recovery. When needed, I help people with the cautious use of appropriate medication and will refer people for specialist psychological therapy when required.
