About me

I lead a national specialist service for people with severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD). I was a member of the group revising the diagnostic guidelines for for Obsessive Compulsive and Related Disorders for the World Health Organisation. I was a member of the group that wrote the NICE guidelines on OCD and BDD in 2006. I conduct research into OCD, BDD, the rapid treatment of depression using sleep deprivation and bright light therapy at the Institute of Psychiatry where I am a Visiting Professor.
