Welcome to the Safe Therapy Space Clinic

Are you feeling stressed? Struggling with anxiety? Suffering from depression? Keen to improve your wellbeing? Experiencing relationship difficulties? Coping with challenges at your workplace? Lacking a sense of direction or purpose in your life? Navigating complex life changes?

By deciding to attend therapy, you are making an essential step to support your health and wellbeing.

If you wish to learn about my approach, please continue to read below. If you want to read about my professional background and the therapeutic modalities that I use, please read the About Nadav Avny page.

The therapeutic approach

I provide therapy to individuals, families and groups and supervise clinicians and teams.

I approach my clinical work from a deep place of awareness, presence and understanding of the pain involved in being a human being.

My work with clients is very collaborative. It is based on honouring the being of the person I am fortunate to work with at my practice, their innate wisdom and their transformational capacity in the face of various internal difficulties and external challenges at all stages of life.

You are the expert of your life, and together with my clinical experience, evidence-based methods and clinical intuition, it enables safe progress on the path. I experience steadiness in walking the terrain of the internal landscape, and it is humbling to walk alongside my clients in their journeys. I feel inspired by the beauty of authenticity, self-development, inner growth and discovery that unfold within the therapeutic space.

I consider the therapeutic work one of the most important missions I have in life.

Acceptance, warmth and integrity are the bedrock of our joint work. Offering a safe space for you to be exactly as you are and supporting you through the paradoxical process of change will help us arrive at the results you want from therapy.

I have a particular interest in working with depression, anxiety, stress, supporting self-development, improving wellbeing, coping with workplace difficulties, life transitions and relationship problems.

Whilst my training was in Psychodynamic, Gestalt and Existential psychotherapies, through my practice and continuing professional development, I also developed knowledge in other therapeutic modalities, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Family Therapy.  This means I can work with you to tailor an integrated and effective therapeutic approach based on your difficulties, wishes, and needs.
