I am a highly qualified, experienced, sensitive and caring consultant psychiatrist with special expertise in the diagnosis and management of adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and attention deficit disorder (ADD). I am trained in both general adult psychiatry and old age psychiatry, and am happy to assess and treat patients from 18 years of age.
My interest and expertise in psychotherapy compliments the medical management of my patients, and puts me in the position of being able to offer both a medical and psychological assessment and approach to treatment simultaneously. I also hold a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) from Oxford University, and use these skills for the treatment of mental illness using a psychological approach to compliment my medical skills. I also have an interest in sleep medicine and have higher training in CBT for insomnia. I recognise that many of my patients, especially those with ADHD, suffer from poor sleep and I aim to optimise this, as well as daytime symptoms of their ADHD or other mental health problems.
