Luca d'Avanzo
Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist
Luca d'Avanzo

Luca d'Avanzo

Luca d’Avanzo re-joined Priory in 2018 as a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist, based at Priory Wellbeing Centre Harley Street. Between 2014 and 2015, he worked as a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist at Priory Hospital Roehampton seeing outpatients.

He has been running his own private clinic, alongside other responsibilities, and spent eight years working within the NHS CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) in London.


  • Following an undergraduate degree from the University of Oxford, Luca d’Avanzo went on to do an MA in Psychoanalytic Infant Observational Studies at the Tavistock Clinic in London and, later, an MProf in Psychoanalytic Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy, again at the Tavistock Clinic.
  • He is a member of the Association of Child Psychotherapists as well as the British Psychoanalytic Council.

I work with children and young people (up to the age of 24) who are struggling with a range of difficulties and challenges including depression, self-harm, anxiety, self-esteem issues and struggles both forming and maintaining relationships. I’ve also worked in the perinatal clinic in the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital with mothers struggling with prenatal and antenatal depression.

I have a keen awareness of the importance of this early period in the relationship between a baby and its parents, and the great potential to help establish a good beginning.
