I researched online the most appropriate consultant psychiatrist to assess my mental health following a referral by my GP. I was looking for a specialist in trauma care, primarily EMDR. Dr Hussain was professional, empathetic and reassuring. I left the consultation feeling very positive. I have a treatment plan which has been made in collaboration and is realistic. Many thanks.
