Inbar has been working with children, young people and families in therapeutic and/or safeguarding capacities since 1998. Inbar also specializes in working with adults who have traumatic experiences, either as child or as an adult.

As a Social Worker and a Psychotherapist, Inbar has extensive experience working with a wide spectrum of difficulties from situational emotional distress to complex developmental trauma, including more specialized areas like adoption, fostering and mental health. Inbar also works with adult survivors of childhood trauma and childhood adverse experiences. Over the years she has worked in different settings including child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS), primary and secondary schools, children’s homes, front line children services, charities and private practice.

Inbar has a special interest in promoting and advocating for an understanding of the impact of developmental and complex trauma, loss and childhood adversities on people across all ages. As well as working directly with clients, she has been working in partnership with parents, carers and professionals (e.g. school staff and social workers) to identify the signs of trauma and empower them to be part of the healing process. Inbar aims to provide an inclusive and holistic assessment and a way of working that offers relevant choices of support according to the identified needs. She is trained in a variety of modalities for both assessing and recovering from trauma.

Inbar is currently undertaking an innovative new therapeutic training in Transforming the Experience-Based Brain (TEB). TEB is a powerful therapy which can be very helpful for individuals of all ages who have suffered Developmental Trauma. The approach brings together touch, regulation, attachment patterns, the bio-physiology of trauma and the trauma ‘story’, to create a therapy which has the potential to be transformative. Often with Developmental Trauma, people experience ‘problems’ without a clear story or narrative. Touch, therefore, can work as the missing language of Developmental Trauma, a way to communicate with a person’s systems that don’t have words.

Throughout her clinical journey Inbar has developed a compassionate and therapeutic approach, which rests a lot of importance on the client’s relationships, particularly with important attachment figures in their life. She always aims to facilitate a safe, nurturing therapeutic environment which helps the individual to repair, connect, reflect and thrive. She offers creative methods (such as use of the arts, play, images and metaphors); EMDR and also more traditional talking therapy. Inbar always tailors the therapy to the individual’s needs, as she values the uniqueness of each client she supports.

Inbar is a UKCP registered Integrative Child Psychotherapist, Clinical Supervisor working with trainee and qualified psychotherapists and counsellors, and HCPC registered Social Worker.
