I am a General Adult Consultant Psychiatrist. I joined the Trust in March 2010 after leaving the South West (Plymouth – Devon) where I worked for around 4 years. Since joining NTW I had the opportunity to work in different areas (Inpatient – Outpatient – EIP – PICU) and I now work for the Northumberland CRHT. I provide assessment and treatment for a broad range of psychiatric conditions and I am Section 12 approved by the Secretary of State for the assessments under Section 12 of the 1983 Mental Health Act. I am also involved in teaching of undergraduates and post-graduates.
I have several interests and I am committed to safety and quality. I have an extensive experience in the field of Psychotherapy and my area of expertise is the connection between Movies and Psychiatry.
I am member of the History of Psychiatry Interest Group. And also Deputy Regional Adviser for the Royal College for Yorkshire Region.
