Director of Clinical Research, The City of London Migraine Clinic, London, UK. I am a specialist in headache and women’s health, with over 30 years of clinical experience resulting in an extensive research and publications portfolio. I am the lead author of the current British Association of the Study of Headache guidelines for the diagnosis and management of a migraine, tension-type headache, cluster and medication-overuse headache and was an expert adviser for the current NICE headache guidelines.
I see adults and children with a migraine, tension-type headache, cluster headache, medication overuse headache, chronic daily headache and less common primary headaches. My particular expertise is the management of hormonal headaches in women.
I recognize that each patient is an individual with different needs. My aim is to help you to regain control through a better understanding of your headaches and discussion of all the options available for treatment. I place headache management in the context of overall physical and emotional health, working with you to aid self-management where possible.
