Dr Priya Nathwani
Consultant psychiatrist
Consultant Placeholder 360X246

Dr Priya Nathwani qualified as a consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist in 2018 from the highly renowned Maudsley Training scheme, with significant experience in the assessment and management of childhood emotional and mental health disorders. During this time, Dr Nathwani worked in a variety of jobs including the national and specialist obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) service, a community neurodevelopmental service for autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), liaison psychiatry at Kings College Hospital and an adolescent outpatient team, managing high risk presentations.

As a consultant, Dr Nathwani has worked in Oxleas NHS trust and co-led the introduction of a new child and adolescent crisis and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) service. Dr Nathwani has completed the foundation training in DBT and has significant experience in the assessment and management of young people with suicidal and self-harming behaviours. Dr Nathwani also has training in systemic theory, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and parent training. Dr Nathwani moved into private healthcare in 2020 and has led a variety of inpatient adolescent wards, including a general adolescent ward, intensive care and low secure unit, treating complex mental health presentations.

Dr Nathwani uses a holistic and psycho-social model to assess and provide diagnoses and formulations for young people in emotional distress. She will work collaboratively with young people and their families to provide individualised treatment plans. She is also a specialist advisor to the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and is passionate about ensuring high quality care is provided to young people in mental health services.

Dr Nathwani is a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists (RCPsych) and registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) on the specialist register.

As a solo practitioner in a private outpatient setting, Dr Nathwani is unable to accept referrals if there is a risk that cannot be safely managed or if the needs of the young person/family cannot be met in the private outpatient setting. This may be the case if a young person is presenting with potential risk of harm to self or others, or a degree of complexity which may require more urgent or intensive intervention and a multidisciplinary team approach to treatment. It is important that all available and relevant information is provided in the referral so that a decision can be made before an assessment is offered. This is to avoid a young person and family requiring signposting via the GP to another service. At the end of your initial assessment, Dr Nathwani will advise whether she can accept you under her care.
