I am a dedicated, enthusiastic Consultant Psychiatrist with over 20 years experience of working with people who face mental health difficulties.

I qualified in Romania in 1986, and specialised in Psychiatry in UK.

Several years ago I have taken an interest in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and after much learning and observation, I have realised that a significant proportion of people who come to our services with various disorders, such as depression, anxiety, psychosis, substance misuse, personality disorder, cyclothymia, deliberate self harm, e.g., actually suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, which is the underlying problem leading to and maintaining their mental health difficulties.

For this reason I screen all the patients I see for this disorder. (The evidence for a close relationship between Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and several co-morbid mental health disorders is becoming stronger day by day). I am pleased to say that many patients who had spent several years within the Mental Health Services have turned the corner once their underlying disorder has been recognised and addressed.

My areas of expertise include:

  1. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  2. Autistic Spectrum Disorder
  3. Depression
  4. Anxiety
  5. Bipolar Affective Disorder
  6. Psychosis
  7. Deliberate Self Harm
  8. Cyclothymia
  9. Personality Disorder
