I have worked in the NHS for twenty years and as a Consultant Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist for eight years. I have extensive experience of working in Community CAMHS treating patients presenting with a broad range of psychopathology. I am trained in a wide range of assessment and treatment modalities and have a holistic approach as I believe problems do not exist in isolation. It is very important for me to work in collaboration with children and families. Together we reach a shared formulation that is meaningful and will help to improve the children’s lives.
I keep up to date with the latest research and follow local and National Guidelines. I am in good standing with the Royal College of Psychiatrists keeping up with their annual Continuing Professional Development requirements. I take part in annual Appraisals and contribute actively to Clinical Governance.
At Eleos we work in a multidisciplinary team which is unique to private healthcare, this allows us to advocate for the best treatments tailored to the patient’s individual needs.
