I have practiced in psychiatry for over 25 years in both the NHS and private sector treating a wide range of mental health problems and psychological difficulties. I work as a partner in the Chelsea and Harley Street Eating Disorder Service, a small group of highly experienced therapists, psychologists and dieticians offering individualised and comprehensive treatment.

I trained in general psychiatry at St Georges Hospital Medical School in London before developing an interest in eating disorders. I held the position of Senior Lecturer at the medical school and Consultant Psychiatrist at the internationally renown St Georges Eating Disorder service for several years. During this time I published widely on a number of subjects including body image treatment and the impact of anorexia nervosa on fertility and brain function. Ten years ago I transitioned fully from the NHS into private practice and now have consulting rooms at Wilbraham Place Practice in Chelsea and The Orchard Clinic in Twickenham. I see both adults and adolescents and their families with a wide range of eating and body image concerns as well as adults with more general mental health problems such as stress, grief, anxiety, depression, OCD and adjustment difficulties.

In addition to my clinical work over the last 10 years I have been an active member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists Eating Disorder Section (EDSEC) as a member of the executive committee and prior to this as secretary to the Eating Disorder Special Interest Group (EDSIG). I have acted as medical advisor to a number of organisations including F.E.A.S.T., Charlottes Helix, giving evidence to the recent All Party Parliamentary Group on Body Image, as a panel member to the Model Health Inquiry (MHI), and latterly as Medical Director for Eating Disorders to the Priory Group and lead Consultant at the Priory Roehampton Eating Disorder service.  I am now a partner in the Chelsea and Harley Street Eating Disorder Service, a multidisciplinary team of expert clinicians treating people with eating disorders.

I am registered and licensed by the General Medical Council and a Member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists. I am registered with all the major health insurance companies.
