Dr Roger Howells, Consultant Psychiatrist

Personal treatment philosophy:

"The approach taken is to conduct a very systematic evaluation including the exclusion of any physical contribution to the presenting problem, after which the formulation is carefully discussed and the treatment options reviewed. Medication is used or adjusted where indicated, but special emphasis is placed on the incorporation of modern psychological treatments delivered by doctorate level clinical psychologists expert in the delivery of these."
