It was Dr Aju’s quest for excellence that urged him to take the Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy from University of Durham in 2005 and to progress quickly in his career to become a Consultant Psychiatrist. One of the highlights of his career was when his team at the St. Nicholas Hospital, where he was the Consultant Psychiatrist, won the award for the best psychiatric team of the year 2006, in Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK, from the mental health charity organisation ‘MIND’. Dr. Aju exercises special command in Psychopharmacology, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Family Therapy, Neurofeedback Therapy and Biofeedback Therapy.
