Dr Tareen is a Consultant Psychiatrist to Holywell Hospital, Antrim and Whiteabbey Hospital. He has been practising psychiatry locally and internationally since 1995.

Dr Tareen, as a private psychiatrist, works from Malone Medical Chambers, Belfast, Northern Ireland. He offers private psychiatric consultations, assessments and treatment of a wide range of adult mental health issues. He also provides individualised treatment plans and follow ups.

Initial assessment lasts 50 minutes. Assessments for ADHD last longer. Subsequent appointments are 20 – 30 minutes. He also provides a second opinion for other mental health practitioners and medico legal report writing.

During the initial psychiatry assessment a full history will be taken. It will include details of symptoms, how they developed and personal and family background information. The assessment will be followed by a comprehensive treatment plan which may include supportive counseling, specific therapeutic intervention and/or medication.

Dr Tareen offers OnLine Video sessions for assessments and psychological treatment to patients living in areas outside of Belfast. We believe video based tele psychiatry helps meet patient’s needs for convenient and readily-accessible services. Review sessions for other conditions can also be arranged after prior discussion between Dr Tareen and patient.
