I am a essentially a clinical psychiatrist who publishes research and works as a Liaison Consultant Psychiatrist in Wrexham, Wales. I was brought up in Germany where I went to University in Münster (Westphalia). I decided to study medicine after my positive experiences working as an auxiliary nurse as part of my national service (instead of joining the army). I moved to Britain in 1995 and did my postgraduate psychiatric education in and around Liverpool. I have always had an interest in the interphase between psychiatry and medicine and obtained accreditation as an adult and a liaison psychiatrist in 2004. I received a Masters in Medical Ethics from Liverpool University in 2003 and won several research prizes.
My first consultant job took me to Wales as a community psychiatrist for Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB), where I covered a catchment area of 24,000 adults in Wrexham, including some of the most deprived areas in Wales. I developed specialist clinics for adults with ADHD in Wrexham, as well as a clinic for delusional infestation with the School of Tropical Medicine in Liverpool, which I run with Prof B Squire. I am an international expert on delusional infestation. Since 2017 I have been working as a liaison psychiatrist in the Wrexham Maelor Hospital, working with patients with mental illness on medical and surgical wards. My clinical inspiration is to work with my team to make a positive difference in the lives of those who suffer from severe mental illness.
My job allows me some time for research. I am affiliated with Bangor and Cardiff universities in Wales, and Mysore Medical College and Research Institute in India. I have been a member of the European Violence in Psychiatry Research Group (EViPRG) since 2005 and contribute to initiatives for the prevention of violence and coercion. EViPRG is a network of international experts who work in the field of coercion and violence with the aim to reduce coercive measures and aggression in medical settings. More recently I have started to get involved in research projects in India. I frequently get involved in the development of pathways and national guidelines.
I am on the steering group of the GMHAT, an international computerised mental health assessment tool developed by Professor Vimal Sharma. It allows non-psychiatric clinicians to make working psychiatric diagnoses. The instrument has become particularly popular in countries with few psychiatric staff and is available in many languages.
My research interests include delusional infestation, coercion, violence and aggression, clinical ethics, capacity, ADHD, systematic reviews, and various other projects. I have conducted many international comparison studies between various countries in the field of coercion. I have contributed to a number of books and published over 150 articles, correspondences and abstracts.
Since 2009 I have worked closely with Professor Rob Poole. I will continue to work with him and the team in the new Centre for Mental Health and Society within BCUHB in partnership with Bangor University. This is an exciting development which will support current projects as well as establishing new projects in the near future.
Consultant Liaison Psychiatrist (BCULHB), Honorary Professor (Bangor University and Mysore Medical College and Research Institute, India).
