My approach to mental health

I have a biological and cognitive-behavioural approach to Mental Health and believe in promoting a healthy style of living and providing psychoeducation as a way to help the person understand and be better able to deal with their psychological, emotional or mental health problems.

Although I have extensive experience in psychopharmacology, I usually explore other treatment alternatives before considering starting a pharmacological treatment.

You can find out more about my approach to Mental Health problems by having a look at the above section 'Services I offer'.

About me

I am a Consultant Psychiatrist specialised in General Adult Psychiatry.

I completed my Medical Studies at Paris-Diderot University (France) and Autonomous University of Barcelona (Spain). I then completed my training in General Adult Psychiatry in Parc Tauli Hospital (Barcelona, Spain). After a fellowship at ORYGEN Youth Centre in Melbourne (Australia), where I received training in early intervention in mental health, I obtained a substantive post as a Consultant Psychiatrist at Parc Tauli Hospital (Barcelona, Spain).

During my years of clinical practice in Spain, I was co-founder and Consultant Psychiatrist at a Private Psychiatry Practice specialised in English-Speaking clients living in Barcelona.

I then moved to London to continue my professional career. I currently work at one of the leading mental health NHS organisations, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. I also work at my private clinic in Kensington.

I have always been very interested in keeping updated about the latest advances and treatments in Psychiatry. To that aim, I obtained a European Certificate in Mood and Anxiety Disorders by the University of Maastricht (The Netherlands) and a Postgraduate Certificate in Neuroimaging by the University of Edinburgh. As part of my continuing professional development, I attend courses on up-to-date psychiatric prescribing and psychotherapy.

"The best six doctors anywhere And no one can deny it Are sunshine, water, rest, and air Exercise and diet. These six will gladly you attend If only you are willing Your mind they'll ease Your will they'll mend And charge you not a shilling"
