Something about Matthew
Matt has been working as a consultant psychiatrist at Mindcare since 2012. He has also worked at the St George Hospital for a similar time, consulting to the emergency department and focussing on admissions for diagnostic clarification, crisis management and relief of psychiatric symptoms. Matt is a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists and is an AHPRA-registered medical practitioner. He completed his medical studies in 2001.
During his psychiatry training, Matt has gained extensive experience in both cognitive behavioural and psychodynamic therapies, and uses these skills in all patients regardless of whether he is seeing them for therapy or not. He works from both a psychological and biological perspective, using medication where appropriate and being mindful of alternative approaches. He is happy to share care with psychologists and general practitioners.
Matt has expertise in ADHD, anxiety disorders including obsessive compulsive disorder and body dysmorphic disorder, mood disorders and psychotic disorders, as well as the influence of personality factors. Rather than focus solely on diagnosis, he would rather take a collaborative approach with a patient to develop a formulation (or understanding) of the problem and use this to guide treatment.
Matt has a non-judgmental and accepting approach to patients from all backgrounds, including gender and sexuality diversity.
