The aim is swift and sustained relief from symptoms and disability, taking advantage of the most recent developments in psychopharmacology.

Initial Appointments

The initial consultation lasts for one hour. This can be arranged promptly. Consultations take place in central London.

At the first appointment, the nature of the psychiatric problem is explored gently. Close attention is paid to factors which may be at the root of the problem. This narrative is shared and developed further. The focus is on symptoms and their effect on a person’s life, rather than an overemphasis on diagnostic categories which have been used historically in psychiatry.

Paul will then discuss the best treatment options, focussing on the desired effects of treatment and the best strategies to minimise potential side-effects.
