Dr Vinod Kumar

Psychiatrist & Head


I have trained extensively in the UK and have qualifications and skills in various psychotherapeutic modalities. I trained and worked in the National Health Service (UK), from 1997 to 2011 on a substantive basis. I completed my core training and specialist training in psychiatry leading to gaining MRCPsych and Certificate of completion of specialist training with Royal College of psychiatry endorsement in Liaison Psychiatry and Eating disorders. I have also acquired qualifications in psychodynamic psychotherapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, and cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy. Since 2011 I have worked in various settings in Bangalore and have been the Head of the Centre, Mpower, Bangalore, since January 2019. I have endeavored to develop a truly holistic approach to mental health issues and work with a particular emphasis on psychodynamic psychiatry wherein apart from the biological issues emphasis is laid on the individual personality and the way that interacts with the illness. This approach paves the way for interventions that are appropriate for the client at that point in time.
