Dr Redwan El-Khayat
I am a consultant psychiatrist and psychotherapist with over 25 years of experience working in the field of mental health. During my extensive experience, I have worked with a spectrum of mental disorders of all levels of severity and complexity including depression, bipolar, anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome and other mental health problems. I have both the expertise and qualifications to offer a more comprehensive and holistic approach to mental health problems: psychological (Cognitive Behavioural) approach as well as psychiatric (medical) approach.
I completed my formal cognitive behavioural therapy training at Oxford University in 1995, and I have since kept my training and accreditation up to date to ensure my patients receive the highest level of care. I am one of few psychiatrists to be accredited as a Cognitive Psychotherapist by the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists.
I completed my specialist psychiatric training in Hampshire. After 20 years in the NHS I took an early retirement in April 2014, but I continue on as an honorary NHS consultant. I have since been working as a Consultant Psychiatrist in private sector, and provide support to individuals experiencing:
Anxiety disorders and OCD
Post traumatic stress disorder,
Alcohol and Substance misuse
I have been active in establishing mental health services for refugees in different countries and is currently volunteering with UK, EU charities, NGOs and working with UN organisations (UNFPA, UNCHR and WHO) to fulfil this aim.
