I am ratified by the General Medical Council and the Royal College of Psychiatrists as being specially qualified in the assessment and treatment of drug, alcohol and addictive disorders. I have worked in the field of addiction sciences for the majority of my medical career and have chosen this as my sub-specialism with extensive clinical experience treating patients with complex and severe difficulties with:

  • heroin and opiates
  • harmful or dependent patterns of alcohol consumption
  • prescription medication problems
  • over the counter medication problems
  • club drug use such as Ketamine, Mephedrone, GHB/GBL, legal highs, Methamphetamines
  • cannabis misuse
  • benzodiazepine / hypnotic medication such as Valium (diazepam), Xanax (alprazolam) and sleeping tablets

I am able to resolve problems that other clinicians and psychiatrists have found difficult to treat due to my expertise in this field. I also see patients that have inadvertently developed withdrawals or dependency to pain medication and sleeping or benzodiazepine-type medications like Valium after recovering from chronic pain, bereavement, an operation or a long illness.

I have gained experience in specialist stimulant clinics with young adults in their late teens and early twenties struggling with cannabis and club/recreational drug use.
