About me


I was born in the United Kingdom and have been living and working in Australia since 2003.


I qualified in medicine at St Mary's Hospital Medical School in London in 1988. I also obtained a Doctorate in Medicine from the University of London in 1998.


I trained in psychiatry at St Mary's Hospital, St Charles Hospital, Northwick Park Hospital and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London.


I became a Member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in the UK in 1993, and a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists in 2003, where I am also a member of the Faculty for Psychiatry of Old Age.


I have held consultant psychiatrist positions at University College London Hospitals NHS Trust, Barwon Health, Geelong, Southwest Healthcare, Warrnambool and at The Geelong Clinic. I have been a consultant psychiatrist since 1998.


I established in 2017 in response to the shortage of psychiatrists in regional and rural areas of Australia.


I have been published widely with more than 80 journal articles and book chapters on psychiatry. You can view my Google Scholar profile here.


I hold an academic position as Clinical Professor at Deakin University in the medical school and teach psychiatry to medical students. I am also an examiner and assessor for the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists.
