Dr Ilaria Bonoldi

Dr Ilaria Bonoldi

Dr Ilaria Bonoldi is an Honorary Consultant psychiatrist in the NHS, and a Clinical Research Fellow at the Institute of Psychiatry, London. In the NHS she works at the OASIS (Outreach And Support In South-London) team, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. She has been working for two years with patients with emerging psychosis, in the community. She helped establish the OASIS out-reach team in Lewisham.

Dr Bonoldi trained in psychiatry at the University of Pavia, in Italy. During her training she spent one year at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London, as a visiting clinical researcher, to develop her skills in the early detection of psychosis. After obtaining the Italian equivalent of the English CCT (higher training specialisation) in General Adult Psychiatry, Dr Bonoldi was appointed again into a clinical research position at the Institute of Psychiatry, Department of Psychosis Studies, where she has the opportunity to combine her research and clinical interests in the early detection and treatment of major mental illnesses.

Dr Bonoldi is fascinated by the different perspectives of her profession, ranging from neurobiological mechanisms to subjective or philosophical aspects of psychiatry. As Clinical Research Fellow in the Department of Psychosis Studies at the Institute of Psychiatry, she runs a multicentre study that employs modern neuroscience to investigate neurobiological factors underlying the onset of psychosis. She has also a strong interest in phenomenology and she is conducting her own study to investigate the interface between neurobiology and phenomenology. She actively contributes to the department’s academic programme.

In her everyday clinical psychiatric practice Dr Bonoldi is skilled in the management of a broad range of psychiatric problems, both minor and severe. In addition to her availability to assess and manage everyday psychological problems such as stress, anxiety and depression, she is especially experienced in the assessment, early detection and management of a variety of emerging psychiatric disorders, particularly psychosis. She offers detailed clinical assessments, early differential diagnosis, care plans and problem solving approach for young adults with subtle distressing symptoms that may reflect an increased vulnerability to develop psychiatric disorders.

Dr Bonoldi is available to work both in English and Italian.
