Inbar is an integrative psychotherapist, specializing in working with children, families and adults who have survived early developmental trauma, adversity and loss. Inbar is also a member of our leadership team as our Senior Therapist for Children & Families, and has an important role in overseeing and developing our child and family services.

Inbar has been working in safeguarding or psychotherapy since 1998, and has extensive experience working with a wide spectrum of difficulties and presentations often, but not exclusively, related to early trauma. Prior to joining Beacon House, Inbar spent many years in different settings including child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS), primary and secondary schools, children’s homes, front line children services, charities offering therapeutic services and private practice. Her passion now is supporting individuals, families and communities to heal following experiences of trauma.

Underpinning her clinical practice and ethos is an inclusive, compassionate, holistic, collaborative, and relational approach, which values and respects people’s agency, autonomy and integrity. She aims to co-create a safe and nurturing therapeutic environment to facilitate healing and growth.  In her work she draws on a variety of psychotherapeutic and trauma informed modalities and is inspired by a range of interventions such as: creative-expressive methods, body-based including touch work, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Re-processing (EMDR). Inbar tailors the therapy to the individual’s needs, as she values the uniqueness of each person she supports.

Inbar is an experienced clinical supervisor working with trainee and qualified psychotherapists and counsellors, and provides supervision and clinical oversight to colleagues within Beacon House, and to professionals externally.

Inbar joined the leadership team at Beacon House in April 2023 as a Senior therapist, supporting therapists in the team, offering clinical supervision, and contributing to the service as a whole.

Inbar is registered with UKCP.
