Dr Simon Surguladze
MD, PhD, DSc, Affiliate RCPsych
Associate Specialist Psychiatrist
Dr Surguladze is a psychiatrist with over 30 years of clinical and academic experience in various areas of mental health. He combines both extensive clinical experience along with research into the neurobiological characteristics of major psychiatric disorders and has had over 60 scientific papers published. Dr Surguladze is a Visiting Senior Lecturer at King’s College London Institute of Psychiatry and Professor of Social Neuroscience at Ilia State University in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia.
His treatment philosophy is based on establishing trust between the client and himself. He therefore dedicates much of a session listening to the client to build up a therapeutic dialogue. He combines psychopharmacological medication with some therapeutic methods including Motivational Interviewing. He does not try to teach his clients how to live their lives – but rather to develop confidence and hope, so that they can better handle their problems.
"I would like to take this opportunity to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to Simon for all the help and advice he has given to me during the past year.
He has demonstrated great professionalism and understanding of my problem and has helped me regain both my energy and purpose. I only wish that I had visited Clinical Partners a lot earlier avoiding numerous GP visits.
It is also very comforting to know that if I need any further help it is only a phone call away.
Thank you again CP and Simon"
