Khaled

PSYCHIATRIST SPECIALISING IN ADHD & ADDICTION

DIAGNOSED ADHD

Khaled has over twenty years’ experience as a Psychiatrist working with mental health disorders including Adult ADHD and addiction.

Not only is Khaled diagnosed with ADHD himself, he also has many family members and friends diagnosed with ADHD. So he knows about ADHD both from his professional and personal experiences.

Khaled is particularly passionate about helping people who have addiction problems alongside ADHD. He has seen too many people battling addiction issues with no idea undiagnosed ADHD is at the root of the problem. He has also seen psychiatrists with little understanding of the compulsive element of ADHD. Because of this, their insistence that patients conquer any addiction before they will even start medicating for the ADHD is nearly always going to fail, and leave the patient feeling more hopeless than they were before.

Khaled completed his medical training in 1998 with an MSc and MD in Psychiatry followed by Substance Misuse in 2009. He joined The Royal College of Psychiatrists in 2013.

His medical practice has included time spent as Medical Director for inpatient and community services for mental health and drug misuse disorders.

Khaled has been extensively involved in delivering presentations, lectures and training courses to healthcare professionals both nationally and internationally. He has also published widely about substance misuse and mental health research. His particular interest is in the Dual Diagnosis of mental health disorders and substance misuse disorders – in particular Adult ADHD and substance misuse.

Khaled has a kind, empathic and understanding approach. He will patiently listen to clients’ backgrounds, their life events and what has brought them to where they are today. He will then work collaboratively and holistically to help them choose the absolute best treatment options available. He will support clients at the start of their journey and as they move towards an addiction free future.

Khaled is also impassioned about raising Adult ADHD awareness and has joined with Headstuff ADHD Liberty to help our clients who have addiction issues and either diagnosed or undiagnosed ADHD. He understands more than most how undiagnosed ADHD can so easily lead to having one or more addictions and he is passionate about helping clients get on top of their addictive behaviours at the same time as being correctly medicated for their ADHD.

Khaled also shares our frustration about the amount of undiagnosed ADHD people languishing in prison because their undiagnosed ADHD has led to addiction, criminal behaviour to support the addiction and ultimately incarceration. He is passionate about raising awareness on this unnecessary punishment of people for whom the correct ADHD diagnosis and medication could have meant a very different crime-free life.
