Enquiry and Contact Details


I am a psychiatrist who not only see patients with severe mental illness, but those who have difficulty managing their mental health related to life stressors, such as relationship problems, or those who seem to feel that they're stuck. Although I do believe that medications help patients to improve, psychotherapy plays a big role in optimizing the treatment outcome. I provide "talking therapy".
