Your Partner in Healing at North London Therapy Practice

Welcome to your first step towards healing. I'm Zehavah, a therapist accredited by both the UKCP and BACP, dedicated to supporting adults, teens and couples. I specialise in sleep difficulties, anxiety, relationships and financial stress.  Whether you prefer to meet online or in-person in Finchley, North London, I'm here to provide a space where you can safely explore your thoughts and feelings. I also offer a huge amount of experience providing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).


Navigating Life's Challenges Together

Life's journey sometimes presents us with challenges that can feel overwhelming. Whether you're facing relationship issues, workplace stress, feelings of depression or anxiety, a loss, or simply feel that something is amiss, therapy can offer relief and a path forward. Additionally, I specialise in addressing sleep concerns, particularly insomnia, offering tailored support to restore your rest. 


Tailored Support for Your Unique Journey

Counselling and psychotherapy with me are grounded in creating a secure, confidential environment to explore and understand your life's complexities. Depending on your needs, we can engage in short-term counselling to address immediate concerns or embark on a longer-term psychotherapy journey for deeper exploration. The duration and approach of our sessions will be customised to suit your preferences and goals, ensuring that you feel empowered every step of the way. 

Your Comfort, Our Priority

Choosing to open up to a therapist can be daunting. It's crucial to find someone with whom you feel a genuine connection and feel comfortable with. I encourage an initial conversation, whether by phone or email, culminating in an assessment session to ensure that our collaboration feels right for you. For those facing specific, immediate challenges, I also offer Single Session Therapy, with the flexibility to transition to regular sessions if desired.

A Diverse and Integrative Approach

As an integrative therapist, my practice is informed by a rich tapestry of therapeutic approaches, allowing me to respond effectively to your individual needs and aspirations. My background includes working in the NHS, low-cost services, and volunteering in mental health and women's health charities, with people from all walks of life, backgrounds and experiences. My expertise spans psychodynamic therapy, existential therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and mindfulness, all aimed at facilitating a deeper understanding of yourself and fostering meaningful change.


Exploring Your Path Together

Our sessions can explore a wide range of topics, from anxiety, depression, and relationship challenges to specific concerns like sleep difficulties, parenting, and personal growth. With a Master's in Psychotherapy Studies and specialised training in treating conditions like insomnia, I am equipped to guide you towards understanding and altering patterns that hinder your well-being. I am also fully CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) trained and experienced. 


Start Your Healing Journey

Together, we'll navigate the complexities of your experiences, fostering a deeper understanding of yourself and exploring new ways to approach life. By acknowledging your unique story and aspirations, we can chart a course towards a more fulfilled and authentic existence.


Comprehensive Support for Your Well-being - North London Therapy Practice

Your Journey to Better Sleep

In addition to psychotherapy, I'm excited to offer a specialised program tailored to those struggling with insomnia or difficulty sleeping. This program is designed with a clear goal: to empower you to achieve restorative sleep naturally, without reliance on external aids.


Embracing Restful Nights

The program focuses on several key areas to enhance your sleep wellness:

Understanding Your Sleep Cycle: We'll explore your body's natural sleep rhythms and needs, shedding light on how you can align your lifestyle with these patterns for optimal rest.

Elevating Sleep Quality: Together, we'll implement strategies aimed at not only increasing the quantity of your sleep but significantly improving its quality.

Sustaining Healthy Sleep Practices: I'll equip you with a toolkit of practices and knowledge to maintain your improved sleep patterns long-term, ensuring you continue to benefit from restful nights.


Integrative Care for All Facets of Life

Whether you're seeking support for emotional challenges, relationship issues, or specialised help for sleep difficulties, my approach is holistic and tailored to your unique needs. By combining psychotherapy with focused programs like our sleep improvement initiative, I aim to provide comprehensive care that addresses both your mental and physical well-being.


Embark on a Path to Better Sleep and Beyond

If you're ready to transform your sleep and, by extension, your overall quality of life, let's start this journey together. With a blend of therapy and dedicated programs, we can tackle the challenges you face, leading you towards a more balanced, fulfilling life. 

My fees for both individuals and couples are £90 for online therapy and £110 for in-person therapy.
