My Approach

I respect my clients and when i challenge them on their world view it is done in a gentle manner. I am glad that my clients find the space to be safe and can walk away feeling validated.. ' Aviva made me feel instantly relaxed , I felt that i could tell her anything'.

About Me

I know how daunting it can be to start counselling and discuss difficult things with a stranger. I pride myself on helping my clients to feel as comfortable as possible so they can relax and chat openly about the difficulties. Please feel free to call me or email me for an initial conversation about therapy and how it can help you to feel better, stronger and deal with the issues more confidently. I work in the daytime, evenings and on Sundays. I work face to face in London and Israel, I offer skype and telephone counselling as well. I am a passionate psychotherapist and counsellor. I feel honored and privileged to work in my field. I am a person who is dedicated to self growth and feel strongly that we all have choices, even if we cannot see them! We cannot choose our 'givens' in life, but we always have the ability to choose how we respond to them, and that makes all the difference in the world! Let's go and grab life while we have it! I have been told by clients who have finished counselling that they felt safe enough to tell me what was bothering them, that they have gained self confidence and that they feel able to move forward in life with more tools. Counseling can benefit you in many ways, and sometimes just having the space just for you to talk helps in itself.It takes a lot of courage to make the first step in reaching out for support, but I will not judge you instead I will sit along side you and work together with you to find a way forward. I offer concessions for students and those unemployed. I look forward to hearing from you. Be well, Aviva.

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

I trained in guy's and st Thomas hospital in the palliative care department. I then went on to specialise in working with people affected by illness , anticipating a loss and experiencing bereavement. I now facilitate suicide support groups, bereavement groups and work with people affected by illness.
After training in palliative care at Guys Hospital I have been working with people affected by cancer and illness.
Stress affects us all , in different ways. I have worked with people for many years who struggle with stress, and through our sessions learn to respond differently.
So many people have told me that they could only work by phone. Being seen is so difficult and if working by phone you can open up and share what you need to in a safe way then that is also possible. Telephone therapy is a way I have been working for over a decade and see how much it can support clients who are most comfortable this way.
