The TranQuality team
Meet our clinical team
Our clinical team are experts in the emotional wellbeing sector. Prof. Mortimer and Dr. Robertson have over 18 years’ experience with TMS treatment of mood disorders and in 2017 they received the NHS Medipex Award for innovation in mental health treatment.
PROF. ANN MORTIMER
Chief Medical Officer
Depression is ubiquitous in modern society, it is poorly understood and too often inadequately treated. Drug treatments may not be tolerated, while psychological interventions are effortful and not suitable for many patients. Targeted TMS by contrast combines helping patients get better quickly, safely and effectively, with advancing our understanding of how the brain works. I am involved with TranQuality because our work makes targeted TMS widely available, so that the individual and societal burden of depression can be relieved.
I have 36 years in psychiatry, 30 of them as a Consultant, and 22 years as a Professor. I have treated over three thousand patients and I have a comprehensive understanding of depression in all its forms, including substantial expertise in both the psychological formulation of depression and pharmacological treatment. I have spent the last two decades using TMS in depression and anxiety disorders with Dr Robertson and in 2017 we won a major regional NHS innovation prize for our work, the NHS Medipex award.
DR. COLIN ROBERTSON
Chief Technology Officer
What Prof. Mortimer and I have developed, over many years of collaboration, is a unique treatment for mood disorders. I treat patients who suffer from depression and anxiety disorders and help them to change and restore their mental health, so they can enjoy life. Personally, the feeling this gives me is incomparable and immensely satisfying. One of our patients remarked that I have a ‘fantastic job’ and indeed I do, I love what we do and would not change it for anything else.
I have a Ph.D. in psychology and bring over 30 years of clinical and cognitive neuroscience research to TranQuality. In particular my expertise in the neuroscientific process, we use as part of the Mental Health Assessment programme, and in clinical tTMS treatment. Last year we won an NHS Medipex award for Innovation in Mental Health Treatment, in recognition of our unique brand of targeted TMS to treat mood disorders.
TranQuality Life Coach
I welcomed the opportunity to work alongside the team as a TranQuality Life Coach in our mission to break stigma and change the way mental health is viewed in society.
I have a BAHons in Education with Psychology and Counselling, a Diploma in Life Coaching, as well as being certified in TMS administration to work alongside Dr Robertson and Professor Mortimer, and I am currently working towards an Advanced Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, which has equipped me with theoretical knowledge and experiential understanding of the impact poor mental health can have on an individual.
The innovative technology we use at TranQuality has produced fantastic outcomes for people who have faced detrimental effects of poor mental health, as well as those experiencing very mild problems, just understanding what is happening in the brain can be so powerful for positive transformation.
Meet our executive team
DR. NICK MILNER
Chief Executive Officer
The effect of mental ill health on individuals, organisations and society is significant and growing. I joined TranQuality to develop a service to help millions of people a year through assessments and treatment. Systematically assessing peoples’ mental wellbeing, as we do with dental or other health checks, allows us to identify those at risk or currently suffering and enables us to offer them counselling and treatment.
I have a PhD in Occupational Medicine/Ergonomics and I am a Chartered Psychologist (C.Psychol). I have worked in high tech and medical tech for more than 25 years and have seen how technology can personalise medical diagnosis and treatment around the world. I have led and expanded companies and combine significant business experience with strong academic credentials including a Master’s degree from Judge Business School, University of Cambridge.
I believe that by using technology appropriately, we can reach and help make a positive impact on the significant number of people suffering from mental ill health.
Over many years I’ve seen the impact of poor mental health on friends and family. I’ve also experienced depression in the past and been blessed to overcome it. Daily, I see and hear of the devastating effect of mental health problems throughout the world. The rise of this pernicious disease in young people should be halted for the wellbeing of future generations.
My dream is that starting now we can make a difference - first removing the stigma, second, identifying early symptoms, and third reducing the need to treat with medication.
I put my 40 years’ experience of business development in multinational public companies, high growth technology SMEs and my extensive global network of connections behind our mission to Act on Mental Health.
Chief Innovation Officer
I have an international professional career in information technology spanning 40 years. I have been fortunate to work primarily with emerging technologies and therefore have stayed at the forefront of what is a fast-moving sector. This has allowed me to pioneer new venture commercialisation in multinational public companies and SMEs in the health sector.
I have designed, developed and delivered large scale systems including high volume, real-time data processing and AI.
I joined TranQuality to help use my experience to address what was a hidden and is now a growing problem. The technology we have and are continuing to develop will lead to faster diagnosis and treatment of mental health issues. My hope is that this will help improve wellbeing across society.
Vice President Sales
I have worked in the commercial environment for over two decades and over this time I have seen how many companies both large and small deal with Mental health, very little care and attention has been given to this area in the past and it is only now that people in society are beginning to realise the response ‘just pull yourself together and get on with it’ is simply not good enough. After seeing many people close to me, both family and friends, suffer in silence from mental health, it has become my passion to change this and to interact with corporate and public sector organisation to address this pandemic problem.
I have worked in the medical sector for over 20 years starting this journey with a Degree majoring in Biomechanics to being on various boards from ‘Start ups’ to large ‘Blue Chip’ organisations I have always had a passion to see the best technologically advanced medical devices help those in the most need. I joined TranQuality because I saw the vision the owners had to make a ‘life changing’ procedure be made affordable and available to all those struggling with mental health regardless of their financial situation. I also saw if both the commercial and public sector environments took a more proactive approach to mental health we would see a huge reduction in negative, and sometimes tragic outcomes of untreated mental health.
