My name is Yoni Pinkas, I am a I am a registered Psychodynamic Psychotherapist with The British Psychoanalytic Council (registration number: 22120) and adhere to its code of ethics.

Seeking help is not easy.
Often, it is more difficult than letting things stay the way they are.
I can offer you a safe space to think about these things in your life that aren’t working, and am committed to helping you challenge the usual way of going about things.
This might be around difficult events or life transitions, such as changes in employment or relationships, the loss of a loved one, illness, or a threat to life. In some cases, people struggle with low mood, anxiety, or feelings of loneliness, without exactly being sure why.
We often find ourselves feeling stuck in the same place, or doing the same things over and over. We experience complex tensions and dilemmas surrounding friends and family life, personal development, work, and more, with no clear solution in sight.
There might also be a general desire to think about and make sense of your life, to face your patterns and fears, and to change the way you do and see things. In these situations, psychotherapy allows you to freely and safely explore things with a professional, in a non-judgmental and confidential environment.
How I Work
Throughout your psychotherapy sessions, you will have the opportunity to raise issues that are currently on your mind and to explore underlying matters and themes, some of which you may not be completely aware. I will listen to you closely and will work with you to uncover the difficult areas of your life, and to think about things you might not ordinarily think about.
I offer individual and group psychotherapy for adolescents and adults of all ages, in English and Hebrew. I also offer clinical supervision for clinicians from different backgrounds working across various settings.
I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist and group-work practitioner, trained at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, and at the Institute of Group Analysis, London and registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council, Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists and the institute of Group Analysis.
