Dr Paul Flower trained as a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, after an earlier career as a public sector economist. He had many years experience of working with children and families in a wide variety of clinical settings, while developing a special interest in Eating Disorders, including the setting up and direction of a major residential treatment centre for young people.
Other interests have included research into evaluation of service effectiveness, and organisational development with senior NHS managers.
More recently Dr Paul Flower has retired as a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist and his clinical interests have focused on psychotherapeutic treatment of older adolescents and adults, particularly those with problems which that have seemed somewhat intractable and hard to resolve.
He is a Founder and Co-Director of The Child and Family Practice.
