About me

I am an experienced, approachable and thoughtful Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist who works with children, young people and their families to understand their distress and find effective and acceptable solutions and treatments.

I am able to provide assessments and treatment for individual children and young people as well as interventions for families, parents, couples and children with their parents. I can advise on further treatment and provide second opinions.

I can provide a timely assessment and intervention before problems become entrenched and severe. I am used to working with high risk situations such as self-harm and severe intentional weight loss and will happily work alongside other agencies and professionals when necessary.

I can diagnose mental health disorders and prescribe medication when appropriate. This is often In conjunction with psychological interventions, the mainstay of treatment for young people.

Psychotherapy is a passion and skill of mine. Through talking, art, playing and observation and adapting to the clients’ needs I integrate skills from insight-oriented psychotherapy, systemic family therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach; I tailor my approach to each client. I am also positive about the use of mindfulness for self-soothing and regulating emotions.
