Psychological medicine

I have a special interest in psychological medicine. In today's world Anxiety, Depression and Manic Depression (bipolar illness) are commonplace and can be helped, now more than ever, with advances in psychotherapy and medications. Spending longer in consultations (one hour initial assessments are standard) is an advantage in these often complex problems. Referral to others working in the field, whether Psychiatrists or Psychotherapists, may be appropriate and that referral will take into account the patient's requirements and personality. Fees are not recoverable from insurance. Initial consultations will be settled on the same day. Communication with the patient's GP will be at the patient's discretion.
