Italian Psychiatrist in London
My name is Alessandro Bruno and I am a medical doctor specialising in Psychiatry. I work as a Consultant in Eating Disorders at the Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and also as a private practitioner in London and Oxford. In addition to this, my other areas of expertise are depression, anxiety, PTSD, non-substance and substance addiction, personality disorders, psychosis and bipolar affective disorders. Physical comorbidities that often occur in several mental health conditions are another field I am competent and interested in. I strongly believe in an integrative biopsychosocial approach for psychiatric disorders and in the care delivered by multidisciplinary teams.
I trained in medicine and psychiatry in Italy where I then held consultant position in general adult psychiatry and community-based rehabilitation. In those years I had a fruitful collaboration with the Institute of Psychiatry at London King's College.
I take a holistic view of psychological disorders. In my practice, I draw from my training and experience in both psychopharmacology and in psychotherapy.
I aim to create a partnership with my patients and a safe environment to explore and develop insightful understanding which might help relieve psychological difficulties and bring comfort to patients' lives. Through empathy, patience, active listening and diligent research, I believe my patient's desired goals can be achieved. Accurate diagnosis is paramount in psychiatry, and this requires adequate time, in order to develop rapport and understanding.
For treatment, when medically indicated, I may recommend and carefully prescribe and monitor psychotropic medications, across all diagnostic categories (psychopharmacology/pharmacotherapy).
I have remained passionate about research and so evidence based practice is a core value in my clinical work. I feel research and clinical work should inform each other, in order to be truly relevant.
I like sports, especially tennis and football, ethnic foods and I enjoy live music performances.
