Dr James Arkell
Consultant Psychiatrist

Through working in both the private sector and NHS I have experience in treating the full range of mental health problems from mild stress through to severe and enduring mental illness. I endeavour to combine an informal style with rigorous diagnostics and use an integrated approach addressing the biological, psychological and social aspects of illness. I work with both pharmacological and psychotherapeutic approaches using my background in Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and working with families. I work closely alongside psychotherapists and GPs valuing the containment that this golden triangle of team work can achieve.

I take an interest in the interface between mental health and the arts, setting up a series of events involving The Royal College of Psychiatrists and The Almeida.
