I endeavor to offer comprehensive, tailored and holistic treatment plans for my clients. I believe in promoting a healthy style of living and providing psycho-education as a way to help my patients understand and be better able to deal with their psychological, emotional or mental health problems. Your Initial Consultation will consist of a clinical assessment. The purpose is to build up a clinical picture as accurate as possible of your needs, in order to decide what intervention or support might be the most suitable for you.
When appropriate, I combine a full medication plan with a range of psychotherapeutic interventions, providing psychological support and intervention based on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Systemic Therapy and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy principles. I apply a Positive Psychiatry approach, helping clients to enhance performance in their personal and work life, to reduce distress and to acquire a satisfying self and interpersonal balance.
My approach to medication:
I have extensive experience in using medication to treat mental health problems. However, in most cases I also explore other options, including psycho-education, talking therapy or lifestyle changes (among others), before considering starting a new medication. I endeavour to empower my patients to be part of the decision-making process regarding the best medication and treatment plan, by discussing the various options including any potential side effects of the medication.
