Our psychiatry service recognises that behaviours of concern may reflect adverse developmental experiences, stress, health issues, sensory and communication difficulties and mental health needs.
Our consultant psychiatrist, Dr Bruce Chenoweth is a highly experienced practitioner. He has many years of practice working with children, adolescents and adults with developmental disability and mental health needs. Dr Chenoweth works closely with the broader SAL Consulting team in order to deliver services in a holistic and collaborative way. Our psychiatry services are informed by neuro-developmental, attachment and bio-psycho-social models of practice.
Dr Chenoweth has special interests, experience and training working with children, young people and adults who have:
- Developmental delay
- Intellectual disability
- Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
- Complex mental health needs
- A history of complex developmental trauma
- Been placed in out-of-home care
- Behaviours of concern
Dr Chenoweth provides a one off initial assessment and care plan and liaises with the individual’s primary care practitioner who will provide ongoing support. We also offer Skype consultations for people living regional and remote areas.
