Dr Balvinder Khaira is a General Practitioner with an interest in the interplay between the psychological, physical, and greater societal dimensions of an individual. His medical practice draws on the concepts of mind-body holism and an inquiry into the factors that create disease, whilst also supporting factors that can lead to greater harmony and wellbeing.

He has extensive experience in community health, addiction medicine and mental health. He enjoys the full spectrum of general practice and is currently also undertaking further study in counselling and mental health.

He believes in providing sensitivity to people from all walks of life, including members of the LGTBQI community and people from all cultural backgrounds.

Balvinder runs a blog exploring how alternative medicine can be integrated safely into the western medical model.

Outside work, he enjoys spending time with his family and the local “wefo” community. He also enjoys practicing yoga, meditation, skateboarding, playing music. To top it all off Balvinder also runs a record label that supports charitable organisations in India.
