Professional profile:

I am interested in all aspects of paediatrics, especially delivering sensitive, child-focussed care. I am keen to involve children in their consultation as much as possible, and to restrict to the minimum the amount of investigations and treatments, which they have to undergo. I want children to enjoy their visit.

I also appreciate the anxieties and difficulties of being a parent. By working in partnership with families, I hope to alleviate the parents' - and grandparents' - fears and worries as well.

I see lots of children with a variety of different problems. I have a particular interest in c    onstipation/stool withholding, soiling and wetting, and have published a book to help families deal with these conditions.

I also see many children with headaches, chronic fatigue syndrome and sleep problems.
