Caroline Hacohen MA, PsyD

Assessment/Testing Specialist

ABOUT

I’m an English-Israeli educational psychologist living in Ramot, Jerusalem. I made aliyah after receiving a B.Sc and teacher’s training certificate from London university, then continued my training as an educational psychologist here in Israel. I’ve worked here for many years both privately and through the municipal school psychology services both in Jerusalem and Modiin. I received my doctorate (from Essex University, UK, in conjunction with the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust) after returning to live in London for several years with my husband and children for a diplomatic assignment.

I work with children, adolescents and parents, with a focus on learning disabilities, emotional stresses, transition or adjustment difficulties to life in Israel, and parenting challenges. My work includes full psycho-educational evaluations in both Hebrew and English, short-term therapeutic interventions with children, and parental counselling. I always ensure a close working relationship with the school staff and often do school visits for feedback, in order to help build individual education plans, and as part of my ongoing support and monitoring of the child’s progress. I have also published articles and run therapeutic groups for social skills training, and workshops for teachers and parents on transition issues.
