“After many years I decided to pluck up the courage to see a private psychiatrist about my problems with attention and concentration. After a very thorough but gentle assessment, I was given a diagnosis and treatment plan from Dr Liam Parsonage. I am very glad that I found myself in front of Dr Parsonage and I can say that the overall experience felt reassuring and safe, carried out in a bright and breezy consulting room at a relaxed pace. So far, my treatment plan has made a huge difference to my overall concentration levels. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner.”
