I’m a substantive Consultant Psychiatrist in the NHS, and a Honorary Clinical Research Fellow at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College of London. I do my private practice at the Sloane Court Clinic, in Chelsea, London and Crossroads Psychology in Clapham and the City, London.
I am skilled in the management of a broad range of psychiatric problems, both minor and severe.
In addition to my availability to assess and manage common problems such as stress, anxiety and depression, I have a special interest in psychosis, ranging from early prodromal state, to treatment resistant illness. I have particular experience in the assessment, early detection and management of a variety of emerging psychiatric disorders in young adults.
I am also experienced in the management of chronic complex psychotic disorders and offer second and third line treatments for difficult to treat illnesses.
I am available to work both in English and Italian.
Dr Ilaria Bonoldi
Consultant Psychiatrist MD, PhD, MRCPsych
I trained in Medicine and in Surgery at the University of Pavia, in Italy. The faculty of medicine in this university is one of the oldest worldwide and the top in Italy.
I graduated in 2007 (110/110 cum laude). I then qualified in Psychiatry in 2012 (50/50 cum laude).
My passion for a holistic approach to care led me to deepen my scientific knowledge conducting a PhD at the University of Pavia, investigating the relationship between psychopathology and neurobiology, which I completed in 2016.
The desire to expand my cultural horizons motivated me to obtain a Clinical Research Attachment to one of the most prestigious training and research centres in Psychiatry worldwide: the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London.
Since then, I have dedicated myself to the study of psychiatric disturbances, maintaining a position in the same Institute, while working in the NHS as a Consultant Psychiatrist for the South London and Maudsley Foundation Trust.
My research activities led to publish original articles in high impact factor peer-reviewed journals, win prizes, present at international conferences and write books. In 2019 I was awarded Highly Cited Researcher status by Web of Science.
