I am a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist with 13 years experience of working as a Consultant within the NHS. I now dedicate my working life to independent practice. I have experience of managing young people with a wide range of mental health difficulties. Clinically I incorporate my medical and psychiatric training into a whole systems approach to working with children and families, taking into account the many interacting factors that contribute to a young person’s difficulties. Specialist areas of interest and expertise include supporting young people with anxiety / depression, and their families and the assessment and management of developmental disorders including ADHD and Autistic Spectrum Conditions. I have extensive experience of clinical leadership, teaching, training, supervision, service and strategic development, both within and across organisations.
