Dr Samuel Yates, MA(Cantab), MBBS, MRCPsych, Dual CCT in General Adult and Older Adult Psychiatry, Section-12 approved and Approved Clinician under the MHA
I am an experienced Psychiatrist and have been working in the field of mental health since 2010, providing specialist input for mental health difficulties of all kinds related to the whole spread of human experience. I am dual accredited by the General Medical Council as a Consultant in both General Adult and Older Adult Psychiatry, in addition to which I have several years of experience working with children and young people.
My fundamental aim in my clinical practice is to provide thorough, holistic and compassionate care tailored to your specific needs and wishes. In addition to my diagnostic and pharmacological expertise, I have undertaken post-graduate training in various modalities of psychotherapy, further cultivating skills developed during my first degree in Psychology and Philosophy at Cambridge. I am known for my comprehensive approach, my attentive communication skills, and for treating people with respect, sensitivity and openness. My clinical expertise has been affirmed, first by my medical school (St George’s, University of London) from which I graduated with a distinction and, more recently, by the Royal College of Psychiatrists which, on admitting me as a specialist member, awarded me the Laughlin Prize in Psychiatry.
In tandem with my patient-facing work, I have keen interests in medical education, medical ethics, and mental health law. I also enjoy travelling, and am fascinated by language, culture, politics and geography.
I very much hope that my experience, skills and professional values can be of help to you.
