Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul.

And sings the tune

Without the words,

And never stops at all.

                        Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)

Personal Statement

I am a General Adult Consultant Psychiatrist based in Cambridge and the Clinical Director for Acute Care Mental Health within Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust. I trained in Oxford (both basic and specialist).  I have a specific clinical and research interest in mood disorders and psychosis and have extensive experience of working with complex and resistant cases. I have a sub-speciality accreditation in Rehabilitation Psychiatry.


I an a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists (MRCPsych) and am approved under Section 12 of the Mental Health Act, 1983, by the secretary of state for health as having special expertise in the diagnosis and management of mental illness. I have an MSc in Psychiatry with distinction and another MS in Psychotherapy with distinction. I have an excellent academic record and have had the opportunity to train (Oxford) and work (Cambridge) in outstanding institutions. I have worked in a range of sub-specialities covering tertiary psychopharmacology to formal psychotherapy training, leading to a holistic approach to psychiatry. I have worked in a variety of settings and have a good grasp of transcultural issues in psychiatry.


During my training and current post I have forged strong links with the trust management and have taken a lead in developing new service models and working with colleagues in general practice to raise the profile of mental health. I enjoy teaching and have been an undergraduate specialty tutor in Psychiatry for School of Clinical Medicine, University of Cambridge . Previously as a lecturer in Oxford University, I have taught at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. I have led neuroimaging research into cognitive aspects of psychosis, genetic studies and psychopharmacological trials. I have a wide range of research skills that are transferable. My colleagues have appreciated my ability to produce results in both clinical and academic fields and motivate teams by leading by example.
