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 telepsychiatrist.online 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.

My philosophy on treatment is quite simple - I genuinely want to get to know you and your situation, to enable me to work with you in developing the most appropriate treatment plan, a plan that will aim to reduce your symptoms as quickly as possible and facilitate recovery. I practice to the highest standards, in accordance with RANZCP clinical practice guidelines and would consider myself a friendly, approachable doctor.
I undertook my medical degree at Deakin University, completing studies and clinical training in rural Victoria, before working as a hospital doctor in Bendigo prior to starting specialist training. I went onto complete a Master’s degree in Psychiatry at The University of Melbourne during this time, and competed my specialist training (FRANZCP) in Geelong, including a secondment as a senior medical registrar as part of advanced training in the psychiatry of old age. Throughout this role I gained significant expertise in neuropsychiatry and dementia in addition to my general psychiatric work.
My research and clinical interests encompass a variety of areas and include expertise in anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, OCD, PTSD and eating/body image disorders, with further strong interests in neuropsychiatry, psychogeriatrics and medical comorbidity.
I have a particular interest in rural/regional/remote mental health, including the improvement of access to mental health care for those living in such areas. I am keen on contributing to the education of students of all disciplines within health settings, and hope to continue to encourage medical students, interns, and junior doctors to pursue a career in psychiatry.
I am continually updating my knowledge and skills, and also enjoy staying on top of many exciting research developments in mental health, and having always lived in in the country, I am delighted to be able to contribute to the mental health of our rural, regional and remote towns across Australia.
