I am grateful( I think) to this psychiatrist for basically forcing me to go on a major tranquilizer a few years ago, when I was experiencing major living and mood difficulties, which have since improved, and for helping minimize the length of hospital admissions. As far as her manner is concerned ,she was insightful but I found her somewhat acidic, she also did not go to huge lengths to explain the treatment or my illness to me. Would I recommend her? I suspect she may be better as a private practitioner than as an NHS one. But this is just my personal view and could be completely inaccurate.
