Anxiety, Depression, Mood disorders, Trauma/PTSD, Resiliency issues & low self-esteem, Sleep issues, Insomnia, Stress & Burnout, Grief, OCD, Panic disorder
I am a Consultant Psychiatrist and licensed Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist with over 12 years’ experience in working with people with mental health problems. I provide comprehensive mental health assessments and treat mental health issues affecting adults of all ages.
Throughout my career, I have acquired a depth of experience working with a range of presenting challenges including, amongst others, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, trauma/PTSD, resiliency issues & low self-esteem as well as sleep issues, insomnia, stress and burnout, grief, OCD and panic disorder.
I genuinely like helping people affected by mental health challenges who are often marginalised, and sometimes discouraged by the stigma they encounter. It always brings me great satisfaction to see clients I work with not only improve their health, but also how the perception of their mental health challenges change over time, resulting in a positive approach to their recovery as well as their ability to live full and fulfilling lives, with their families, friends and communities. After all, mental health problems are just as physical health problems.
My approach is patient-centred and takes a holistic approach to treatment, which may include medication, talking therapies and lifestyle recommendations. I very much enjoy working in teams and collaborate with our interdisciplinary team of specialists. This is focused not only on treatment of those in need, but also prevention of relapse, and supporting their overall sustainable recovery to achieve their personal, professional and relationship goals.
