I am a caring and approachable medical doctor specialising in emotional, behavioural, communication, and relationship difficulties in children, adolescents, young adults, and their families.
I have extensive experience in assessing and treating a range of mental health conditions including attention difficulties, ADHD, autism, behaviour problems, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, medically unexplained physical symptoms, and sleep problems.
My ethos is to offer excellence of care based on evidence-based research with respect and compassion.
I believe in a positive holistic approach to foster self-awareness and empowerment for growth and satisfying self.
Looking forward to meeting you and discussing your unique individual needs and life circumstances and/or those of your child.
How can I help?
A healthy child's brain develops not merely due to biology but also through environmental factors and the latest are increasingly under threat in today’s society.
Hence, mental health conditions in young people have been on the rise in recent years. This can lead to an enormous impact on their lives and as on families.
Therefore, I can help you and/or your child to identify these difficulties early on and treat the deeper roots rather than the surface symptoms.
With this approach, you and/or your child will shape your own health and evolve to a more positive wellbeing.
What can you expect during a first consultation?
Initially, a comprehensive assessment will be conducted to evaluate current difficulties and strengths. This can include developmental, emotional, cognitive, physical, educational, family, peer, and social components. Followed by a diagnostic formulation and design of a joint personalized treatment plan based on you and/or your child's needs.
Screening questionnaires, diagnostic tests, physical examination and/or liaison with other professionals or schools will also be provided if required.
What is my approach ?
I have an integrative vision of the human being as a whole. My approach is to apply the neuroscience principles of the mind-body relationship and environment to restore and optimize health. Likewise, the way that we think and feel can make us physically ill.
A healthy childhood is the foundation to develop a full potential, resilience to thrive (even in challenging circumstances), and the key to achieve satisfying self and interpersonal balance as an adult.
I believe in the need for a sincere, relaxed and close doctor-patient relationship to build trust and a solid therapeutic alliance.
A bespoke integrated treatment will be tailored to suit each person’s lifestyle and strengthen personal development and self-improvement to optimize wellbeing. I practice multi-modal methods based on current evidence-based research including therapy, positive parenting, healthy lifestyle and state-of-the-art medication when appropriate.
