I am a Consultant Psychiatrist, working full time with the clinical team for the States of Jersey since 2009. I also work privately from my private practice at Castle Quay Medical Practice.
I studied medicine in Spain and completed my training in Psychiatry between the UK, Bermuda and Australia. I trained in child & youth and adolescence, old age, general, substance misuse, forensic, liaison, rural and remote and neuropsychiatry. I obtained my MRCPsych in 2006 and I am registered in the GMC Specialist Register (4467177).
I am a caring individual, empathetic and continuously keep up to date with new approaches to help my patients overcome their life challenges. Coming from a Spanish background and having worked in different countries has allowed me to develop a better understanding of cultural issues and its impact in mental health.
