    • Expertise

    • General Adult Psychiatry.
I have been a psychiatrist for twenty two years, and now practice full time at the Priory Hospital in Woking.

I specialise in what I love doing the most: The treatment of depression, anxiety, stress and alcohol use. These illnesses are definitely the scourges of modern society, and are very under-recognised, and certainly under-treated. There's still so much misunderstanding about them.

I work with individuals to help clarify their diagnosis and understand the reasons for their illness, and to create effective treatment plans, using both talking therapies and medication (if wanted). I will generally link patients in with specialists to help do the talking therapy, and over the years, have developed an amazing collection of professional colleagues, so can almost always find the right person to meet a patient's particular needs. I also have access to an effective and exceptionally supportive group treatment programme at the Priory, which provides rapid results within a 'safe cocoon' here in Woking.

Please call Caroline to learn more or to arrange an appointment, on 0345 11 22 300. Caroline will be able to talk you through diary availability and to offer a more flexible range of options than via the Medstars online booking facility. New assessments are £250, and follow up sessions £100. I look forward to meeting you!
