Professor Samuel Stein
Consultant in Child, Adolescent and Family Psychiatry
BA MBBCh FRCPsych ACFM GDL LLM BPTC
I hold a BA in Criminology and Penal Science, and a Master of Laws in Legal Aspects of Medical Practice. I also hold a Certificate in Forensic Psychotherapy and trained as a family mediator. Having completed the Graduate Diploma in Law, I studied at the Inns of Court School of Law and was called to the Bar by the Inner Temple. I am a Visiting Fellow at the Centre for Research in Law at the University of Bedfordshire and an Honorary Visiting Fellow at Anglia Law School. I was also appointed to the Tribunals Service by the Lord Chancellor and was appointed as a Ministerial Advisor to the Home Office.
I regularly undertake medico-legal reports and appear in court in regard to criminal, civil and family law proceedings. I have been regularly involved in care proceedings, parenting assessments and contact disputes. I have a particular interest in vulnerable witness and special measures in court, and in children facing removal from their home jurisdiction. I have significant experience of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder following clinical treatment, and the emotional impact of medical negligence and missed diagnoses.
In spite of the current circumstances, especially as COVID-19 and the steps being taken to contain it will be proving very unsettling for many adults and young people, we are continuing to offer new assessments, review and treatment meetings, and regular therapy sessions by Skype, FaceTime and telephone for the foreseeable future, for patients within our local areas but also further afield.
