I am Dr Nagore Benito, Consultant Psychiatrist and I have a private practice in central London.
I am passionate about what I do and I offer a holistic approach using evidence-based treatments including psychotherapy, medication if required and psychoeducation.
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'.
I am a Consultant Psychiatrist specialised in General Adult Psychiatry.
I completed my Medical Studies at Paris-Diderot University (France), Autonomous University of Barcelona (Spain) and Miguel Hernandez University (Spain). I then completed my training in General Adult Psychiatry in Parc Tauli Hospital (Barcelona, Spain). After a clinical attachment 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 have worked in a substantive capacity for several years at one of the leading mental health NHS organisations, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. I currently work full-time at my private clinic in central London.
I have always been very interested in keeping up-to-date 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.
