Dr Alexis Economou - Consultant Psychiatrist

MD(Greece), MSc, MRCPsych, FHEA

"Dr Economous was incredibly gentle, kind and understanding. Made me feel at ease straight away and listened to my worries without trying to immediately solve them. Thank you."

Dr Economou is a Consultant Psychiatrist with dual accreditation as a specialist in General Adult Psychiatry and Medical Psychotherapy. Dr Economou's experience and training allow him to bring a breadth of clinical approaches to his work; he combines general psychiatric skills and knowledge with a highly specialist psychotherapeutic approach.

Dr Economou has extensive experience of working with adults and adolescents, who are going through a difficult time in life and experiencing struggles on an emotional level, as well as working with people who are suffering with an episode of mental illness. He has experience of providing detailed, complex psychiatric assessments and treatment across the diagnostic spectrum. His experience has been accrued through working in highly specialised psychiatric teams and in generic health services, inpatient and outpatient mental health units, as well as primary care settings. 

Dr Economou works with people suffering with a wide range of issues and with mental illness across diagnostic categories. He has particular expertise in working with people who suffer enduring mood symptoms, which do not easily fit into diagnostic categories and may be linked with chronic trauma and enduring relationship, personality or wider emotional difficulties.  In recent years, he has developed considerable expertise in working with patients suffering medically unexplained symptoms. 

Dr Economou's approach is to work towards understanding you as a whole person and working with you towards a formulation, and potentially a diagnosis, which makes sense for you as a person. Following formulation and diagnosis, Dr Economou's approach to treatment is based on a bio-psycho-social framework; this means he will consider holistic, individual treatment plans which may include lifestyle recommendations, taking therapy and medication if indicated.

In his psychotherapeutic approach, Dr Economou is influenced by psychoanalytic, psychodynamic, cognitive and systemic approaches. He has additional training in mentalisation based therapy, psychodynamic interpersonal therapy and has attended training courses in group analysis and therapeutic communities. He works with individuals, offering brief as well as long-term therapies. 

Dr Economou completed the majority of his psychiatric training in Oxford, at the Warneford Hospital - a renowned centre for psychiatric education and research. He was subsequently appointed to consultant psychiatrist roles in Oxford and works as a school psychiatrist at independent schools. He has held formal research roles and this has contributed to his practice being grounded in up-to-date scientific literature and guided by the evidence base for best practice. He holds a postgraduate degree in education from the University of Oxford and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. He remains actively involved in training the next generation of psychiatrists, he delivers advanced communication training for medical students at the University of Oxford and is a GMC approved educational supervisor for junior doctors training in psychiatry.Prior to his time in Oxford, Dr Economou completed the core psychiatry training in South Wales, holds an MSc Psychiatry from Cardiff University and qualified as a medical doctor MD from the University of Ioannina in Greece.
