I have been a Consultant Perinatal Psychiatrist since 2002 working in the NHS and, more recently, in private practice. I specialise in providing mental health care for women who are planning a pregnancy, pregnant or postnatal.
5 stars isn't enough for Dr Green - not only is she an incredible doctor, but she is a lovely person. I first met her after I had an early miscarriage and my mental health took a turn for the worse. I'd always struggled with generalised anxiety disorder and panic disorder, but my panic attacks became so frequent and severe that I was unable to leave the house without experiencing an attack. Dr Green helped me every step of the way as I recovered - nothing was too much trouble, and I never felt judged or rushed. She always puts my mind at ease with her smiling face and her calm, patient, kind demeanour. (Her secretarial team is great as well.) I've seen numerous psychiatrists over the years, but Dr Green is the first to really spend time understanding my unique situation, and she worked with me to find the right medication through genetic testing and a bit of trial and error. Now, for the first time in years, I'm enjoying my life - and I'm no longer worried about falling pregnant again knowing that I have Dr Green in my corner. I echo what others have said - she is an absolute gem and I feel lucky to have found her.
Dr Green has been my psychiatrist for just over a year, following a period of severe mental distress after the birth of my second child. My care has been exceptional and and I would not hesitate to recommend Lucinda to other women and families. I have greatly benefited from her warm and compassionate approach, her ability to understand the complexities of mental ill health whilst being a parent to small children, and her excellent understanding of suitable treatment, including what medication to take.
After my son's birth, I started to suffer from anxiety and depression. I tried several therapists and also gave it a go to acupuncture. But it was not until I met Dr Green, and I was diagnosed Perinetal OCD, when things finally started to change for good. Lucinda is very professional and gave me reassurance from day one that things were going to get better. She also recommended my current therapist, who is amazing and has also helped me to get through all the difficult moments. I would recommend Lucinda to any mum out there struggling with mental health issues.
I felt extremely at ease during my first appointment with Dr Green. Her natural bedside manner was comforting and she not only provided me with all of the relevant medical information that I needed but was also easy to talk to on a personal woman to woman level. Dealing with mental illness can be frightening and equally isolating. Dr Green made me feel that I was not alone and that we would be able to find a solution to my individual needs. Dr Green helped me feel human again and I am forever grateful to her. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need.
