Philosophy of care

I believe it is essential to take the time to listen to the patients’ story, whilst gently exploring the symptoms present before applying exceptional diagnostic skills to work out exactly what the problems are.

My aim is to achieve complete recovery, but also advising how to enhance the patients’ quality of life going forward.

Individual treatment plans are formulated in collaboration with the patient, allowing plenty of time for explanation and questions. Treatments may consist of medication, referral for psychological therapy and or lifestyle advice.

I understand it can be daunting to visit a psychiatrist for the first time, which is completely normal and expected. My aim is to build a solid trusting relationship with the patient on their road to recovery.

"I saw Dr Pearse when I was suffering from anxiety and depression. Although I had received support from my GP, I felt that further help was required. I found that Dr Pearse quickly put me at ease during my first consultation with her friendly warm approach. She listened attentively and asked pertinent questions to understand my mental health issues. I am certain that without Dr Pearse's professional help I would not be as well as I am now. She also provided a long term management plan to try to prevent a relapse in the future. I cannot recommend her highly enough and am most appreciative of her help."

"Following my first assessment appointment with Dr Pearse, I was very impressed with the skill and efficiency she demonstrated in pinpointing the likely condition I have - Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD).  Dr Pearse offers a very human approach to psychiatric medicine which allows me to feel very comfortable in sharing my thoughts and feelings with her.  The time I have spent with Dr Pearse has allowed me to gain a deep insight in to BPD which, in turn, has allowed me to gain a high degree of ownership over my condition.  As a direct result, I have developed the self confidence to now engage with life on a much deeper level.  For anyone considering seeing a psychiatrist, it can be a very daunting idea; however, it has been the best decision I've ever made, and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Dr Pearse.”  Michael
