Dr Elin Davies (MBBS FRCA MRCPsych) qualified in medicine at London University (The Middlesex Hospital Medical School) in 1987. She subsequently trained in anaesthesia in London and Manchester, and gained Fellowship of the Royal College of Anaesthetists in 1994. In 1996, she changed career path, and trained in psychiatry in London. She was a full-time NHS consultant in Cornwall from 2005 to 2009, before embarking on more independent practice, which included working in mental health services in Plymouth. In addition to part-time NHS work, she now works on-line for Psychiatry-uk.com, as well as seeing private patients face-to-face in Cornwall and the Plymouth area. Her experience is with working-age adults across a range of common mental disorders, with a particular interest in the overlap of biological and psychological factors in illness.
If you are looking for an artist in her profession Dr Davies is the one. She is not only the experienced and top class professional but also a specialist with charisma. I had a session with her recently and from the beginning I felt listened to attentively and with respect. She is not a psychiatrist who will just ask question and issue a prescription. She is a therapist who will seek the best ways to help you out by understanding the specifics of your psychological world. I would strongly recommend her to anyone who is not only looking for the best medical advice possible but also who needs warmth and humane approach in the contact with a professional. Thank you Doctor Elin.
I felt immediately at ease with Dr Davies. She listened to all of my ramblings and did not make me feel ridiculous in any way about my various anxieties/preoccupations. She was exceptionally kind, calm and patient. She gave me a clear opinion and direction to take after leaving the room. My one regret is I that I wish I had taken a breath in between talking which would have given more time for her to respond to the various things I was talking about and give me the benefit of her wisdom and expertise. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Davies.
Dr Davies is sympathetic and direct. At times her opinion might seem direct, the proverbial bitter medicine. But whatever she does is in the patients best interest. If you want someone who wants to genuinely help their patient, Dr Davies is the person to go through. She will help guide you though the difficult decisions needed to turn the corner.
I found Dr Davies very helpful. I felt she really 'got' me and also appreciated the functional bits of me as well as the bits I struggle with. I'm a doctor too and I think Dr Davies manages very well the complicated task of recognising my professional identity and also holding onto the patient side of me that needs help. I found Dr Davies to be interested and knowledgeable about psychological aspects of my difficulties and she was sensitive to the potentially distressing nature of these.
Dr Davies had a kind, receptive approach and I felt immediately at ease during my appointment. She explained the potential courses of treatment clearly and assisted me whenever I needed with the GP shared care.
