The depths of the human soul have always fascinated me. As a child, I was amazed at how many other people’s stories and experiences surrounded me. As a psychiatrist, I consider it important to inform the patient about the nature of the disorder and the treatment options and to make treatment decisions together. I believe that childhood experiences play an important role in our thought patterns and behaviours and are often the foundation of mental health problems.
