Private Consultant Psychiatrist
Dr Iqbal Mohiuddin
I am fully registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) in the UK with a licence to practice since 1999, a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists since 2009, and on the GMC Specialist Register for General Psychiatry since 2013 (GMC number 4579557). I am indemnified for NHS and private medical practice.
Background, Training, Skills, & Experience
IamPsychiatry is a well-established private mental healthcare service providing bespoke, confidential, and effective mental health assessment, psychotherapy, and medical treatment. I am the Director and an independent Private Consultant Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist since 2008. I have enjoyed and been privileged to be working as a British medical doctor and NHS psychiatrist for over 22 years, as well as a private consultant psychiatrist for over 14 years. It has been a pleasure to have successfully helped and treated over a thousand NHS and private patients. We have been increasingly busy assessing and treating private patients from all around the UK by Online video consultation via Google Meet, Zoom, MS Teams, WhatsApp, Apple FaceTime, and Skype.
I was born, bred, and educated in London, and I graduated as a medical doctor from University College London (UCL) Medical School in 1999. Since 2000, I have trained and worked full-time as a psychiatrist in the NHS in Luton and Bedfordshire, and part-time since 2016 with East London NHS Foundation Trust (EFLT). I have worked as a Consultant Psychiatrist for people of working age (General Adult Psychiatry) since 2008. I have also been successfully treating private patients since 2007.
Appreciating the mind-body link, I effectively use talking therapies and medication in combination for the safe and timely recovery of my patients. I have a special interest in Psychotherapy and I have trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Human Givens Therapy. I follow a biopsychosocial holistic approach to mental health assessment, treatment, and recovery, which seems to work well with my patients. I am grateful to consistently receive positive feedback from my patients, their families, and my professional colleagues. I received the iWantGreatCare Certificate of Excellence 2021 and 2022 for being most highly and consistently rated by my patients.
As well as having extensive experience in successfully treating mood, anxiety, and psychotic disorders, I also have special interests in Addictions Psychiatry and Adult ADHD. I am experienced in preparing Independent Expert Psychiatric Reports for the Courts, Solicitors, Occupational Health departments, and private companies and clients.
Over recent years we have been receiving daily enquiries regarding Adult ADHD screening, diagnosis, and treatment and has become a highly desirable specialist treatment service that we offer.
Whilst English is my first language, I can also speak and understand Bangla (Standard Bengali) with basic proficiency.

I am honoured to be the voluntary Consultant clinical supervisor for Reclaim Life in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, a successful and growing charity providing five free life coaching sessions based on the simple and effective Human Givens approach.

Recognised Health Care Provider
I am recognised by CIGNA, PruHealth, and Western Provident Association (WPA) as a private healthcare provider. Please discuss with your insurance provider about private referral and treatment with us, which we would be happy to support if needed. However, the vast majority of our private patients are self-referring and self-paying.

Hi, my name is Carlene, and I am a Senior Mental Health Social Worker. I qualified from the University of Bedfordshire in 2019 and completed several courses, including King’s College London ADHD course in diagnosis, assessment and best practice treatment, and practical strategies to help the education and personal development of people with ADHD.
I have experience working in various settings including child and adolescent, older adults, and working age mental health services, and currently crisis resolution home treatment services.

I was awarded the ‘Service User Award for Special Person’ by East London NHS Foundation Trust (ELFT) in 2021. I have both professional knowledge as well as personal. I am an Adult ADHD service user who was diagnosed as an adult, and I am a mother to a son with ADHD. I have an in-depth understanding of how untreated symptoms can have a negative impact on an individual’s well-being. I feel that my life experience has enhanced my professional skills and allows me to provide collaborative holistic care with a deeper understanding of the impact symptoms and impairment can have on an individual.
