I have been working as a private practitioner in general adult psychiatry for 30 years and I see a wide range of people and problems, in particular those with anxiety and depression, although I also have an interest in working with young adults with eating disorders.
Psychiatry is as much to do with people and helping them solve their problems in their everyday lives as it is about minds and mental illness. Enabling people to understand the cause of their symptoms and distress is in my view vitally important in helping them to overcome their difficulties. I strongly believe that the treatment must fit the individual and not vice versa, and using my clinical experience to decide on the most effective way of helping those that I see, will I hope enhance the prospect of a successful outcome.
