Rob Baskind
ADHD psychiatrist,
Positive Psychology
Practitioner and Coach


Hi, I'm Rob


I am a consultant psychiatrist offering ADHD assessment and medication treatment and I am also a positive psychology practitioner providing coaching and workshops to individuals and groups (with and without ADHD).


 I have a wealth of experience working in mental health services and created a specialism in Adult ADHD. I worked as a doctor in the NHS for over 20 years, and as a consultant psychiatrist since 2008. I also worked in community and acute day hospitals and was the prison psychiatrist for two large male adult prisons for several years. In 2011, I developed and launched the first Leeds NHS Adult ADHD service, which I was clinical lead until 2022. During this time, I led a successful service and  gained a reputation for my expertise and clinical skills, but also for my passion and commitment to raising awareness of ADHD across social media and in local and national newspaper and magazine publications. I have provided regular ADHD training across healthcare settings and also other areas including the criminal justice system.  


Over recent years, I have become increasingly aligned with focusing on individuals strengths and supporting individuals to achieve more fulfilling lives with the intentional aim to flourish and reach optimum mental health, rather than 'just' not being unwell which is often the traditional 'medical' or 'illness' model.
