Dr Zeeshan Ahmad

Consultant Psychiatrist, Adults Specialist

You are not your illness. You have an individual story to tell. You have a name, a history, a personality. Staying yourself is part of the battle which I will help you fight.

I am a UK-trained General Adult Consultant Psychiatrist with over 10 years of experience treating patients with different mental health conditions. I strive to help my patients realise their potential, enjoy their personal life and to be able to cope with the stress of everyday life, so that they can work productively, and be able to contribute well towards the society. I use a pragmatic and holistic approach using a biopsychosocial model to enable my patient’s sustained recovery.

Prior to joining Sage Clinics, I have worked as a General Adult Consultant Psychiatrist in North East London NHS Foundation Trust in a community team where I carried out in-depth assessments and treatment of patients with wide range of mental health difficulties and devised multidisciplinary management plans often incorporating crisis resolution teams. I am also approved by the secretary of state under section 12 (2) of the UK Mental Health Act of 1983 and carried out regular assessments on severely ill patients that were putting either themselves and/or other people at serious risk due to their deteriorating mental health.

Hallmark of my clinical practice is the pride that I take in the ownership of my patient’s care; they are not just coming to see a physician for a medical issue, they are bringing themselves in to my care. All diseases especially mental illnesses can negatively impact a patient’s entire world, hence we aim to address the entirety of the patient when administering treatment to truly promote health and well-being and to ensure that wellbeing persists and the efforts we have made collectively with our clients for the their recovery, continue to do well for them.

I use systemic, holistic, and collaborative approaches through team work to help my clients recover and recuperate. Our care plans are not restricted with the confines of our clinic rooms but at Sage, we make every effort to make sure that we are doing everything that can be done to ease out our patients difficulties.
