"I believe in treating mental health conditions holistically and using variety of biological, behavioural and various holistic approaches alongside psychological methods"
I became a consultant in 2006 and have worked in various settings including community, crisis and home treatment as well as in-patient settings. I was also involved in senior management roles and worked as a Clinical Director in the
NHS . After working in the
NHS for over 20 years, I have established my own private practice.
Whilst I have experience of treating range of conditions, my special interest is in treating mood disorders and neurodevelopmental disorders including
ADHD . I also have developed expertise in diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorders and have trained via National Autistic Society and also undertaken training in
In the last few years I have used new treatment methods like
TMS and more recently medical cannabis for treatment of resistant cases of depression,
ADHD and Pain Management.
I have keen interest in the evolutionary aspect of psychology and psychiatric disorders. I fell in love with Shrewsbury and whilst worked in different areas of UK, Shrewsbury which is the birth place of Charles Darwin remained my home and now the base of my own private set up.
It was my dream and passion to bring a range of holistic treatment options to help people in times of need and to get them back to living a fulfilling life and achieve their potential. The last 3 years have been immensely rewarding just doing that.
Having travelled more than 50 countries, I have tried to learn from different health care systems and endeavoured to apply the best approaches in my own clinical set up. The team in my clinic firmly believes in evidenced based treatment approaches but also applying them individually to each client's need.
Having been extremely lucky to work and learn from amazing role models during my own professional development, I find leadership roles very rewarding . It gives me chance to not only pass on my own ideas and experience but also learn from the young and talented professionals. I am a firm believer in science and lifelong evidenced based learning. It was a proud moment for me when
CQC acknowledged the leadership aspect of my practice and considered it 'outstanding'.
