About me

Dr Lawrence-Smith started as a visiting consultant at the Priory Wellbeing Centre in Harley Street. Dr Lawrence-Smith is a consultant psychiatrist, working for the NHS in liaison psychiatry at the Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel, a National Trauma Centre and St Bartholomew’s Hospital in the City of London.

Dr Lawrence-Smith has over ten years’ experience working full-time for the NHS in general adult community, consultation-liaison, and perinatal psychiatry. He has worked in many NHS mental health trusts across London and Southeast England including Oxleas and, currently, East London Foundation Trusts.

Dr Lawrence-Smith is presently helping to develop a neuromodulation team for treatment resistant depression in East London.

In his liaison psychiatry role, Dr Lawrence-Smith provides clinical leadership and day-to-day supervision to his colleagues and collaborates directly with patients in crisis to formulate safe, recovery-focused management plans directly in the emergency department, on acute medical/surgical wards and in outpatient settings.

For over 4 years, Dr Lawrence-Smith conducted perinatal psychiatry outpatient clinics alongside community midwife colleagues to be as responsive as possible to the needs of women in the perinatal period.

Dr Lawrence-Smith’s community psychiatry role developed his confidence and expertise in multidisciplinary working to facilitate the community care and recovery of patients with complex mental health needs in the context of conditions such as schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder, depression, personality/attachment disorder and autistic spectrum conditions.

Over recent years, Dr Lawrence-Smith has developed his expertise in supporting people with treatment resistant mood disorders. Dr Lawrence-Smith offers rTMS treatment for depression at the Priory and is also experienced in the assessment and treatment of adult ADHD
