The most important goal for me in the consultation room is to establish and maintain a trusting relationship between myself and the patient. I emphasize holistic assessment and treatment, by acknowledging that mental wellbeing consists of a healthy body, mind, and soul. I encourage engagement with other members of the multidisciplinary team, such as psychologists, dieticians, occupational therapists, and social workers. My approach is aligned with the fundamental components of the recovery movement in mental health.
