I am trained in all adult Psychiatry (such as Mood, Psychotic, Anxiety, Trauma-Related, Adult ADHD and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders). I have worked in the fields of Personality and Eating Disorders. I have comprehensive exposure to Substance-Related Disorders and Dual-Diagnoses.
I have come to appreciate the need for services in the fields of Old Age and Dementia-Care as well as Female Mental Health. Both these groups require specific services with a serious and comprehensive assessment of holistic pharmacological and multidisciplinary management.
I am an avid teacher and enjoy involved in running workshops, mental health advocacy and academic programmes as well as outreach.
