Thank you for visiting this site.
I am a Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist in South Oxfordshire.
I am the medical lead in a local CAMHS service and have over 15 years of experience in helping children or young people and their families.
I have additional training in family therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy and dialectical behaviour therapy as well as coaching, mentoring and management.
I am able to offer independent assessments and treatments to children and young people around Reading and Oxford when they present with emotional and behavioural difficulties .
I am available for private consultations on Fridays and Saturdays when I offer children and young people aged 6 to 18 years old, and their families, assessments and treatments for emotional and neuro-developmental difficulties including:
•Autism and Autism Spectrum Conditions such as Asperger syndrome
•Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
•Anxiety and panic attacks
•Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
•Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
During an initial assessment, I interview parents and their child or young person together and/or separately.
After discussing the diagnosis with the family, I can recommend psychological therapies and/or medication to their GPs depending on the young person’s needs and preferences, taking into account the best available evidence for treatment in young people.
