Dr Deeley, pictured on the left, has recently appeared on BBC 2′s ‘Trust Me I’m a Doctor’ (see below for information).

I am a Consultant Psychiatrist specialising in autism, ADHD, learning disability, and acquired brain injury in adults, as well as mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, psychosis, bipolar affective disorder and addictions.

My clinical approach emphasises person-centred care and assessment informed by sensitivity to the individual, social and cultural backgrounds of my clients, drawing on a full range of treatments and interventions to support patients and their families.

I see patients privately at my Wimpole Street practice.  I also work with services that can provide private home treatment where necessary.  I see UK patients as well as patients from international backgrounds, and can travel abroad for assessments if needed.

In my NHS role I am a Consultant Psychiatrist at the National Autism Unit, Bethlem Royal Hospital, an inpatient service for adults with autism and mental health problems; the Autism Assessment and Adult ADHD service at the Maudsley Hospital, London; and the Neuropsychiatry Brain Injury clinic at the Maudsley and Kings College Hospitals.  The National Autism Unit was rated as Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) following visits in September 2015. 

I am also a Senior Lecturer in Developmental Neuropsychiatry at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Neuroscience at Kings College London.  I conduct research into developmental psychiatry and related fields, and have ongoing research and publications on the relations between mind, brain and culture.  This is an area that I have started pursuing since my dual qualifications, first in Theology and Religious Studies from Cambridge University, and later in medicine from Guys and Saint Thomas’ Medical School.

I lecture at undergraduate and postgraduate level, and teach psychiatrists about autistic spectrum disorders for the Centre for Advanced Learning and Conferences of the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

My research with colleagues at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Neuroscience using suggestions and neuroimaging to investigate altered states of consciousness and psychiatric symptoms has recently been featured on BBC Radio 4′s ‘All in the Mind’ – see chapter 2 in the link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04vf36p
