I cannot recommend Dr. Belda enough. So easy to talk to, kind and most importantly, knowledgable. Just one appointment with Dr. Belda has left me feeling like a major weight has been lifted, I’ve started on medication and very much look forward to my follow up with him.
Dr. Belda is a compassionate, thorough and thoughtful psychiatrist. I've had negative experiences with other practitioners so was especially relieved to find someone as engaged, sensitive and sympathetic as Dr. Belda. He truly listens, asks questions and takes as much time as needed rather than staring at a clock. Couldn't recommend him more highly.
Meeting Dr Belda was unquestionably a life changer for us. My daughter was correctly and quickly diagnosed by Jose as having ADHD. Dealing with a young adult with this undiagnosed condition is difficult to say the least and for her, her life was not as it should have been. Jose is the most sympathetic, understanding and non-patronising professional we have ever seen. He gives all the time in the world to listen, which is so very important when you are not in a good place. Words cannot thank him enough for helping and treating my daughter who is now 100% better than she was before we met Jose. Hers and our lives are transformed by the help this wonderful doctor has given us!!
I had my first meeting with Dr Belda, he was great, listened to me carefully and gave useful advice.
He changed my medication which has been helpful. He is very caring and I booked additional apointments.
I highly recommend Dr. Belda. I recently moved to the UK from Switzerland. There, I was attended by a psychiatrist. I suffered from anxiety due to personal problems in my family and stress at work. I used to visit this Dr. every fortnight, I quit after several months of treatment for I did not perceived a significant improvement. Soon after my moving to the UK, my situation worsen and I sought professional help. From the very beginning Dr. Belda was natural, kind and calm. I did not perceived a Dr- patient relationship. Contrary to my previous appointments, Dr Belda let the conversation move on without perceiving time constrains. At least I have not sensed it in my appointments with Mr. Belda. This fact is quite helpful and reassuring. He was also very attentive once I contacted him when I suffered a relapse. This is very reassuring as well. Due to him, now I feel much better. My quality of live has improved substantially. I highly recommend Dr. B
What else can I say.. he is an exceptional therapist. I have seen many therapists through my life, just when I think I know my diagnoses, Dr Belda offered new insight and knowledge. A million thank-you.
From the first day I met Dr Belda, he was sensitive and caring. He is always ready to speak and to help, weekend or week day. He can appraise a situation very sensitively, gently speaking in such a way so that your understanding grows without you feeling threatened or insulted. What I found very interesting and may be rare to find these days is that Doctor Belda is a real human before being a doctor as his profession. I could not reccommend him highly enough. I am taking my daughter to see him as well.
Dr Belda's calm and compassionate approach helped me enormously to gently look at the issues that needed to be addressed. I feel it has been a joint relationship of discussing my treatment plan which for me works very well. Although some adjustments to the treatment have been necessary I have definitely had moments of experiencing a more balanced connectedness with myself and the world around me than I have felt in more than 40 years, since following his treatment plan. This is quite an accomplishment, hence the 5 star review. Thank you Dr Belda.
My experience with Dr Jose Belda excellent. He was thorough in his assessment and it was obvious that he was very knowledgeable in his field. He was able to explain any issues in a very simple, understandable way. I would highly recommend him.
Incredibly professional and thorough.
I am amazed at the quality and insight of his work.
He is a man who truly cares and who wants nothing more than to help people.
I would be delighted to recommend Dr Belda!
I have experienced nothing but professionalism combined with a truly caring attitude from Dr. Belda. With ongoing support via telephone or email, I feel in good hands and can see progress in the treatment. Dr. Belda applies a holistic attitude in his treatment and this is what I was looking for.
Dr Belda was very good. I saw him for am n assessment and he was very easy to talk to and professional throughout.
Jose has been wonderful; patient, kind, experienced and dedicated. Jose took the time to understand my history,and to explain his diagnosis and discuss medication options with me. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for help with their mental health needs.
I saw Dr Belda for an adult ADHD assessment; sadly very few psychiatrists are able to do them! He was very kind and treated me as an equal; he was also very helpful in educating my GP about adult ADHD which helped with the prescribing. I also found his flexibility with allowing me to try different forms of the medication that I was on to be really important. It can be very hit and miss, and its really vital to have a doctor who is flexible and client centred. I also think that clinically he is very sound and experienced. I'd recommend him to anyone needing to see a psychiatrist. It need never be an intimidating shaming or anxiety inducing experience. Dr Belda was able to put adult ADHD into a context and also highlight the characteristics that go with it, which can even be seen as strength based! It was actually quite life changing to be diagnosed. I'd recommend him highly; it' s been very helpful and positive.
I've always found it difficult to talk about things, not being able to organise my thoughts clearly enough to make any sense. Dr Belda takes the time to listen in a relaxed and friendly manor and with his passion and knowledge he understood me more than all my previous specialists put together. I look forward to seeing him again..
Dr Belda is definitely recommended for anyone who is seeking an excellent psychiatrist that cares for their patient and goes the extra mile. I have seen a psychiatrist for most of my 20s but stopped do to work relocating. As an expact it is difficult to find a good psychiatrist. Upon our first consultation I was assured everything will be fine and there will be brighter days ahead. Dr Belda didn't judge my issues or second guess problems that I was experiencing, he listened and discussed a plan of treatment. He didn't just stop there though. He followed up just about every other day to inquire how I was feeling/reacting to the medication and adjusted accordingly. It is because of Dr Belda know I will be okay and am in good hands.
Dr. Belda is great psychiatrist. During my visit, he was professional, personable, friendly, patient and non-judgmental. After my visit, he returned the documents he promised on time. I highly recommend him.
Dr belda has taken the time to help me something I haven't had in the past. .He has been reliable and always phones when he says. Even visiting me at home when it was difficult for me to travel to London
My experience with Dr. Jose Belda has been excellent.
Dr Belda always goes the extra mile, he takes as much time as it is necessary to listen to my problems (he is not the kind of professional that is constantly looking his watch), he takes his time to understand and provide the best solution, he follows up with emails between sessions and he always offers his help to assist with anything in his hand (for example he offered to write letters in case I needed to travel abroad). He cares about his patients and he is an excellent doctor. In addition he comes across as someone really nice, close and humble.
He is very knowledgeable and has an amazing CV and it is a specialist in ADHD in adults.
I totally recommend Dr. Belda and in fact is the doctor I always visit since I met him.
It was not until my late thirties, that I was formally diagnosed with ADHD. I was always aware that I had issues with concentration and being too impulsive. Contrary to many mis-held beliefs; I was not a terrible child when I was young, but I did not achieve my full potential at school. I have always worked in a professional job. Studying for these professional qualifications was very draining mentally, I was very competent at doing the work but learning the theory parts was hard. I eventually made an appointment with my GP and explained that I thought I may have ADHD. The entire consultation was a 1 line dismissive response. Her answer was 'You cannot have got to the age you are and hold a professional job such as yours and possibly have ADHD'. Being somewhat of a dogmatic person; I conducted some research and discovered some articles written by Dr Belda. They were eye opening. I emailed him and he rung me within a day or 2. I explained my thoughts, what the GP had said but Dr BELDA was most informative and reassuring. I arranged a meeting and have had help, medication, advice, interim checkups and the odd text, call or email from Dr Belda to check how I am coping – he has gone over and above with these check up emails or calls to check on my progress. An absolutely first rate service both in terms of my ADHD treatment but also his professionalism and just generally decent way with people. My wife, who is a qualified Medic, was present during the debacle of the meeting with the G.P and all of Dr Belda's consultations. Clearly she has a professional and informed view; and she states he is one of the finest Consultants she has met in her career. I have been under the care and treatment of Dr BELDA for around 7-8 months. I would say the help he has given me in the form of my diagnosis and treatment has been Outstanding. The most telling reference I can give is the fact that I recommended Dr Belda to a good friend who was also I need of help.
I saw Dr Belda recently with regards to Adult ADD/ADHD. He was very approachable and created a comfortable environment during my assessment. I felt relaxed and felt comfortable to talk about my conditions. As it was my first time seeing a Psychiatrist, I was unsure but I am very happy that I chose Dr Belda for my assessment.
I cannot recommend Dr Belda highly enough! He is friendly, approachable, and cares about his patients.
I was diagnosed with Bipolar II Disorder last year, and since then he has helped and supported me to come to terms with and to manage my condition.
At each of my appointments he listens attentively to me and respects my opinions, and at the start of my treatment suggested and discussed various medical options with me. My treatment is tailored to me as an individual and I am always confident that I am receiving the best advice. In between appointments, he always replies promptly and in detail to my emails, with a considered and well thought out reply.
From the first meeting with Dr José Belda I found him to be very approachable and friendly and above all supportive - therefore helping me to feel extremely comfortable and at ease in his company.
His thoughtful and understanding approach to my problems coupled with his extensive knowledge was very reassuring to both me and my partner.
I find José to be highly professional and caring. He keeps in regular contact by telephone and email closely monitoring my progress.
Having had Dr Belda recommended to me I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
We are so fortunate to have found Dr Belda. Not only is he highly professional but kind and generous with his time, skills and knowledge. Dr Belda has an excellent, manner and is very approachable. We had an appointment very quickly and following diagnosis he has kept in touch to review progress and offer alternative interventions where helpful and appropriate. We have been very appreciative of his care.
It is hard to be succinct in writing about the virtues of Dr José Belda, because they are worthy of a novella..
His expansive expertise in the area of Adult ADHD highlighted what had been for me a life of chronic confusion, chaos and under-achievement.
José Belda's patient and supportive approach guided me through the diagnostic process, and beyond.
It is thanks to José Belda that after half a century I am attending college to gain a formal qualification.
I will remain forever grateful to him for shining a light through the shadows.
José is friendly and understanding, after a few sessions he was able to advise and provide an appropriate plan of action according to my diagnosis. He also makes sure to follow up on a regular basis with his clients and is on hand to discuss progress and any adjustments as necessary.
Having followed Jose's advice over the last few months, I can attest an overall improvement in my well being. I would recommend him if you are seeking any type of confidential help or guidance in your life.
It is an honour to have been treated by this kind, thoughtful and understanding Doctor. I am grateful as my life has been changed for the better by his expertise in ADHD.
