Practice Philosophy and Interest : I consider the entirety of a person's background, upbringing, current circumstances, physical health and environmental factors before arriving at a management plan. And how do I do that? I believe in the Rogerian approach of :

“In my early professional years I was asking the question: How can I treat, or cure, or change this person? Now I would phrase the question in this way: How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for his own personal growth?”

Carl R. Rogers, On Becoming a Person : A therapist view of Psychotherapy

I also strongly believe in practicing evidence based psychiatry.

I have a keen interest and expertise in child and adolescent mental health.
