I qualified as a doctor in India and have trained in Psychiatry in India and the United Kingdom. After completing my higher psychiatric training at the Royal London Hospital training scheme I have worked a consultant for the last 22 years. I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
I have extensive experience as a General Adult Psychiatrist working in Out-patient, In-patient and Community settings, consequently I have developed expertise in assessing, diagnosing and treating the full range of psychiatric disorders including anxiety and panic disorder, OCD, phobias, mood disorders including depression and bi-polar disorder, psychosis, schizophrenia, and ADHD.
I have a keen interest in teaching and training and taught on the University College London MRCPsych training programme for over 20 years. I am a Clinical Tutor with an active interest in teaching and training. I have also contributed two chapters to a popular textbook of Psychiatry, currently in its third edition. I have also been a college examiner for over ten years. I routinely give talks to GP colleagues on management of mood and anxiety disorders.
I am actively involved in the activities of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and have in the past been elected to the general adult faculty executive committee and was the Chair of the Eastern Division of the Royal College of Psychiatrists from 2013 to 2017 running highly successful Academic Programmes.
I believe that establishing a positive therapeutic alliance is paramount and the key to successful outcomes and is best developed by a collaborative approach. In addition, management needs to be holistic - combining psychological and pharmacological treatments.
I provide Consultations at The Priory North London Southgate as well as BMI The Cavell in Enfield and The Ellesmere Clinic. I have admission rights at The Priory Southgate.
