The community clinic, run by the Department of Psychology, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, works in collaboration with the Beer-Sheba Mental Health Center. The clinic offers evidence based psychotherapy, at reduced rates, to residents of Beer-Seba and its vicinity. Currently, the clinic’s services are available for adults aged 18 and above, and include individual therapy, couple therapy, family therapy, and psychological assessment. The clinic provides training for interns in clinical psychology, who are supervised by a team of senior psychologists, most of whom are national and international experts in a variety of evidence-based therapy approaches.
The clinic offers therapy for individuals dealing with a wide range of symptoms and presenting problems, including depression, anxiety, difficulties in relationships, identity formation, questions regarding choice of career or studies, trauma, and questions about general life issues. We believe that mental health services should be provided in an atmosphere of openness, trust, and safety, thus allowing for free discussion and exploration of emotions, thoughts, beliefs, opinions, values, and behaviors that clients experience and bring to therapy. We are committed to providing therapy in an atmosphere of respect and an appreciation for clients’ diverse backgrounds, including ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, and socio-economic backgrounds. We place an emphasis on privacy and confidentiality, and promise to vigilantly insure our clients’ privacy.
