I’m a psychiatrist, academic and psychotherapist.
A former research scholar of the Institute of Psychiatry (Sydney) and Institute of Psychiatry (UK), I obtained my medical degree and psychiatry training in Sydney, then proceeded to have advanced training at the Maudsley in London. I hold a double masters in Psychiatry and Business (Health Administration), and am published in phenomenology and personality disorders in the elderly. In public practice I am the inpatient clinical lead for an old age psychiatry service, as well as ECT Clinical Director. I’m the Binational New South Wales Representative for the Faculty of Old Age Psychiatry, a Foundation Accredited Member of the Royal Australian and New Zealand Psychotherapy Faculty, a Clinical Lecturer with Sydney University, and Senior Lecturer with Western Sydney University (teaching on philosophy and professional development), as well as lecturer with several private teaching organisations, and extensively published in newspapers and journals.
My areas of interest are psychiatry, personality, psychodynamic psychotherapy, philosophy and professional development. There may be a pattern there.
