New Practice Location - Southbank Medical Clinic I am a medical practitioner with over 20 years’ experience in mental healthcare. I see adults, children and adolescents individually, as well as couples and families. I conduct assessments, arrange relevant investigations, and develop and implement management plans, prescribing medication, and undertaking psychological treatment wherever appropriate. I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, the Motivational Interviewing method, relaxation strategies and skills training to manage mental illness and common emotional and psychological problems, including stress, depression, anxiety, eating disorders and relationship issues. In cognitive behavioural therapy you will learn to notice and examine your thinking style and see how it contributes to how you feel. You can develop more useful ways of thinking, to help change your behaviour and develop more effective life skills. I aim to develop with you a management plan that suits your needs. Most importantly, treatment will address current issues, as well as provide a ‘tool kit’ of skills for the future.
