Dr Giaroli is the founder of The Giaroli Centre and is a medical Doctor specialising in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) across the lifespan (from childhood to adulthood), plus other mental health conditions.


In 2014 Dr Giaroli founded The Giaroli Centre due to the lack of services offered to children and young adults in the NHS, which fuelled his frustration to ensure patients and parents receive better services. His diligence towards his patients and passion enabled his clinic to expand and partner with his clinical partners (see here for further details) all of whom are fellow neurodevelopmental specialists and reflect his personal and professional values. Dr Giaroli has also worked with several of his psychiatrist team members during his time in the NHS.


Our centre is continuing to grow and develop to ensure that the needs of our patients are met. Click here to read more about our team.

After graduating with Honours in Medicine and Surgery in 2001 he specialised in general adult psychiatry at the World Health Organisation (WHO) Collaborating Centre at the University of Verona in 2005. He then obtained his Child and Adolescent Psychiatry qualification at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia.


After moving to the UK he was employed by the NHS as a Substantive Child & Adolescent Consultant Psychiatrist, where he also met and worked with Dr Federico Campos from his team.


Dr Giaroli's deep expertise has lead him to practice as a visiting consultant for various adolescent and adult units (outpatient and inpatient) at the prestigious The Priory Hospital North London, The Priory Hospital Roehampton, and the Nightingale Hospital Marylebone, London.


He was an Honorary Psychotherapist for 4 years at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital, London and obtained his Diploma in Cognitive Analytic Therapy in 2011.


In 2012 Dr Giaroli became an Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at Queen Mary University, London and a panel member of the core psychiatry recruitment, London Deanery. In 2009 he also became a module leader and lecturer of pharmacotherapy at the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London.


He is also a corresponding member of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) and has published in International Journals on Psychopharmacology in children and adults (click here to read more) and has chaired and presented at many international conferences on Attention Hyperactivity Defecit Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other mental health conditions (click here to read more).
