Dr Celia Taylor

Dr Celia Taylor trained in Forensic Psychiatry at the Institute of Psychiatry in London and went on to work as an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Psychiatry in London, and Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist at Broadmoor Hospital. She then established a medium secure personality disorder service in the private sector, before moving to East London NHS Foundation Trust in November 2003 to establish Millfields Unit on the campus of the John Howard Centre in East London. This is an inpatient service for high-risk offenders with severe personality disorder, which runs an intensive psychodynamic therapy programme in the form of a modified therapeutic community.

Celia is a member of the London Pathways Partnership (LPP) Steering Group which is a consortium of four mental health trusts. LPP runs a pan-London service to probation officers with high-risk personality-disordered offenders on their caseloads, as well as specialist services for this group in HMP Brixton, Swaleside and Aylesbury. She is a past President of the International Association for Forensic Psychotherapy, sits on the National Probation Service’s London IPP panel, and teaches a Module on personality disordered offenders as part of the Queen Mary University London MSc in Forensic Mental Health.
