Hi, I’m Salim. I am a Consultant Psychiatrist. I did my medical and psychiatric training in London, Prague and Bristol. I have worked in lots of different mental health teams, working with people who have different issues with their mental health, including difficulties with mood, anxiety, and addiction.
I work for an NHS provider, offering support to people with learning disabilities and so I also have experience of working with people with learning disability, autism and ADHD.
Many of the people that I have worked with have had difficult experiences in their life, like trauma or abuse. I can offer advice on ways of helping with these such as social and psychological approaches as well as the role of medication. If medication has not helped, I can give advice on safe ways of reducing or stopping it.
