He is an international leader in functional neurological disorder, also called psychogenic/dissociative/conversion disorder, and in the past, hysteria.

In 2009 he made the first website for patients with FND at www.neurosymptoms.org promoting a new transparent approach to diagnosis and treatment for what has been a highly stigmatised condition.
