I am in private practice as an Adult General psychiatrist. I have been in Private Practice since 1990 and full time since 1995 during which time I will have seen over 8500 patients. I have had extensive experience in dealing with work related mental health issues, depression ( in all it's guises), management of bipolar disorder and related EUPD mood disturbance. I have a range of BUPA therapists with whom I have a good and close working relationship. I have experience in the treatment of trauma. I therefore work within a team to support my patients through these difficult times. I have an interest in assessing mental health of Pilots for Class1 and Class 2 medicals, and I am an Examiner for the GMC
