I am an NHS consultant with The South London & Maudsley NHS Trust responsible clinician for a psychiatric intensive care unit. Other commitments include the clinical management of Asian Mental Health service and Liaison psychiatrist to the Guy's and St Thomas' Medical Toxicology clinic.

I specialise in:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationship problems
  • Schizophrenia
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Alcohol addiction
  • Occupational mental health & stress
  • Health anxiety
  • Personality disorders
  • Medico-legal report writing

I completed training in General Adult Psychiatry at Bombay University, followed by membership of The Royal College of Psychiatrists and senior registrar appointments at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals London.

I have been a consultant since 1995 and from 2004 managed a psychiatric intensive care unit at Lambeth Hospital, South London and Maudsley NHS Trust. I have a keen interest in transcultural psychiatry and supervise a specialist team providing treatments to patients with origins in the Indian sub-continent. At the Medical Toxicology clinic at Guy's hospital we attend to patients with health concerns arising from exposure to chemicals. Between 2008- 2011, I was a visiting consultant Psychiatrist to the Practitioner Health Programme, providing care to sick Doctors and dentists.

I remain interested in biological and psychotherapeutic schools of psychiatry using an integrated treatment model. I am able to communicate in several Indian languages and regularly treat patients from other cultures especially those from The USA, Middle East and The Indian Sub-Continent. I have been in private practice since 2000.
