Nadav Avny

Consultant Clinical Psychologist

My clinical psychology training was psychodynamic. I later completed training in Integrative Psychotherapy, focusing on Gestalt and Existential Psychotherapy, and I have been a UK Council for Psychotherapy Registered Psychotherapist (UKCP reg.) since 2007. Over the years, I developed knowledge of Mindfulness Based Programmes, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Family Therapy. This means we can work collaboratively to tailor an integrated and effective therapeutic approach based on your difficulties, wishes, and needs.
