I am a consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist, working in the North East London NHS Foundation Trust where I also hold the position as the associate medical director for children’s services.  I am also a qualified psychoanalyst.  I set up community services for adolescents with self harm and at present I also run an in/day patient unit for young people and the philosophy underpinning the treatment model is MBT.
