DR NADEZHDA KURUKULASURIYA
I am a Clinical Psychologist who is passionate about and interested in providing assessment and mental health care for adults, children and families who experience a range of difficulties. I am especially interested in working with young children (e.g., aged 3 years and older) with anxiety disorders, notably selective mutism, social anxiety, specific fears or phobias, generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder and panic attacks
I also have experience providing therapy for older children, adolescents and adults experiencing a range of difficulties including anxiety disorders, depression and mood disorders, self-harm, perfectionism, stress and/or academic/workplace issues, social and/or study skills, parent-child relationship difficulties, adjustment issues, early childhood difficulties (e.g., behaviour, sleeping, toileting, separation anxiety), as well as tic disorders.
I am committed to
providing psychological treatment and care using evidence-based approaches,
including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and I collaboratively tailor
therapy to suit the individual needs of each patient. I have worked with
patients within private practice over the past few years, and also have
experience and training working with patients in other settings (e.g., public
hospital/community mental health services, student counselling/specialist
services). I liaise closely with GP’s, any other referrers and
relevant professionals (e.g., schools and teachers when working with children
and families) to provide patients with the best possible outcome and care.
