Amir has extensive experience as a chartered health psychologist and works with both children and adults that display a variety of complex issues. Spending ten years at the Schneider Medical Centre in Israel before moving onto work in a psychosomatic clinic where he honed his skills working with clients struggling with anxiety and OCD. Having also spent time working at more general clinics, he has spent time specialising in depression and has provided consultation on general paediatric wards working with acute and chronic illness, surgeries, staff stress and burnout.
Now with his own practice with 2 clinics across Canary Wharf and Hendon, Amir spends his time providing psychological evidence-based treatments for children, adolescents and adults coping with a range of difficulties.
Amir is registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) , The Health Care and Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Society of Clinical and Academic Hypnosis (BSAH).
Obtaining a medical and health psychology master from Academic College Tel Aviv – Yaffo, Amir has since specialised in other areas of psychological therapy including specific training for:
· Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT),
· Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT),
· Solution Focused Therapy (SFT),
· Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
· Psychodynamic therapy.
· Biofeedback training
Amir has always had an interest in the human mind and behaviour and training in psychology presented him with the perfect opportunity to explore this interest. Throughout his training he has always been surprised by how the smallest interventions can get people unstuck and significantly improve their lives which is exactly what he aims to help people to do.
Amir has an avid interest and knowledge of applying CBT and Mindfulness based CBT such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy into the therapeutic process and has great success in this approach with adults and children with OCD, anxiety, depression, health anxiety, chronic and acute illness and recovery.
