Simon Bainbridge

Qualifying from Newcastle University in 1999, obtaining Membership of the United Kingdom College in 2006 and the Australian and New Zealand College in 2010, I have extensive clinical experience both in the United Kingdom and New Zealand.

As a psychiatrist I am interested in adult ADHD, depression, anxiety as well as drug and alcohol use disorders that often occur co-morbidly with these conditions.

My training both in the United Kingdom and New Zealand has provided me with the comfort and expertise to work in a truly biopsychosocial manner and when discussing management options, I believe I can offer choice and flexibility to work with you and achieve the best outcome.

My model of working is different to other private psychiatrists in that I generally see people for a one off appointment in order to develop a management plan that your GP can follow. After each appointment I provide a detailed letter to both the patient and their GP which has enough detail to enable the GP to take over ongoing management.
