Independent Psychiatric Care

Welcome to my home page. Hopefully this will be your first step in getting the help you are looking for. I have over 20 years of experience treating a wide range of psychiatric conditions in adults especially:

Some important facts about mental health problems

  • They are very common
  • Many of them do in fact have physical causes
  • Some can affect a person's physical health
  • They are just as real and important as physical illnesses
  • Many people will have some form of psychiatric condition during their life
  • They are very treatable and in most cases people can, and will, get better
  • People are becoming more educated and more understanding of these problems
  • Getting treatment early is really important to speed up the time to recovery

My approach to treatment

  • Taking an holistic approach, and not focussed just on a diagnosis
  • Working in partnership with patients with respect and empathy
  • Being sensitivity to the cultural diversity of patients
  • Being non-judgmental
  • Providing a completely confidential service
  • Recommending psychological treatment before medication when safe to do so
  • Working with a small number of highly experienced and trusted psychologists
  • Helping patients with work-related stress and advising their employers
  • Always aiming for patients to make a complete recovery
  • Ability to offer a choice of day-patient and in-patient care facilities that will best suit your needs
