Dr Rachel Berg, BSc (Hons), MBChB, MRCPsych, MSc

I am originally from Manchester and completed my undergraduate medical training at Leeds Medical School, graduating in 2001. During this time, I also completed a BSc in Genetics in Relation to Medicine and later an MSc in Psychiatric Research. I have a Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training in general adult psychiatry and I am a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists. I am approved by the Secretary of State under Section 12 as having specialist expertise and experience in the assessment and treatment of mental disorder.

I have 20 years of experience working as a Psychiatrist and over 10 years working as an NHS Consultant Psychiatrist in central London. I have held senior managerial roles, including Clinical Director for acute services in Westminster. More recently, I have decided to dedicate all of my time to private clinical practice.

My clinical experience means that I have an expertise in psychosis (schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder and drug induced psychosis), mood disorders, severe anxiety disorders, PTSD, personality disorders, drug and alcohol related illness, perinatal psychiatry and forensic work in relation to general adult psychiatry.

I feel passionate about my clinical work and like to adopt a holistic approach when treating patients. This means that I take into account the patient’s individual background and their personal preferences for achieving mental wellbeing.
