Dr Senem Tugrul 360X246

Dr Mila Senem Leveson is a Consultant General Psychiatrist at Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust. She also undertakes private work at the Priory Wellbeing Centre, Harley Street and remotely.

Dr Leveson centres her practice around an integrated, holistic approach in order to tailor treatment to each patient, to suit their individual needs. She is well known by her patients for understanding how both the individual's biological and personal circumstances can contribute to the individual's mental health issues, and providing appropriate support.

She has earned her Bachelor’s degree in medicine at the University of Cambridge, after which she trained in internal medicine and joined the Royal College of Physicians. She then went on to become a Clinical Lecturer at St George's Medical School, and subsequently specialised in General Adult Psychiatry. She gained membership to the Royal College of Psychiatrists in 2015.

Dr Leveson then undertook further training at the Halliwick Unit, where she gained knowledge and expertise in mentalisation based therapy and the treatment and management of personality disorders. Since her consultant appointment, Dr Leveson worked in the diagnosis and management of acute presentations of mental illness of inpatients and in the liaison service, looking after the mental health needs of patients in the general hospital admitted with medical and surgical conditions. 

Dr Leveson is experienced in the diagnoses and management of adult ADHD. She has worked in her Trust's adult ADHD and autism assessment services. She is also able to use repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation to manage treatment resistant depression and her clinical interests include the presentation of autism and ADHD in women. 

Alongside her clinical roles, Dr Leveson is also the academic and educational lead for psychiatric core trainees. She is also undertaking her Master’s degree in mental health research at University College London and has trained in and has experience of writing medico-legal reports.


Dr Leveson was born and educated in Istanbul before moving to England in her teens. She studied medicine at the University of Cambridge, graduating in 2008. She initially specialised in internal medicine and gained membership to the Royal College of Physicians. Following this, she worked as Clinical Lecturer at St George’s University Medical School, in charge of clinical skills teaching for Year 2 Medical Students. She then completed her core and specialist training in General Adult Psychiatry in Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust, gaining membership to the Royal College of Psychiatrists in 2015.

Dr Leveson has undertaken specialist work in personality disorders and trained in mentalisation based therapy at the Halliwick Unit.  She trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy at the Tavistock NSH Foundation Trust where she also worked in the Gender Identity Development Service and researched the presentation of gender dysphoria in looked-after and adopted children.
