Jennifer Turgeman MA

Creative Arts Therapist

ABOUT

My name is Jennifer Turgeman, I was born and raised in California USA and moved to Israel in 2009. I completed my 1st Degree in Psychology (BA) and then went on to pursue and finish an Art Foundation Course at the Machon Avni Art Schools (Tel Aviv). Following this I specialized in creative arts therapy and completed my Masters (MA) in the University of Haifa. I speak English, French and Hebrew (medium level) and offer my services as an art therapist to individuals and or group sessions in central Israel including Herzliya, Raanana, Netanya, Ramat Aviv and Tel Aviv region.

I have also completed additional professional qualifications as a registered healthcare practitioner in London, United Kingdom where I am both a member of the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT) and the Health Professions Council (HCPC).
In terms of my professional experience I have worked across a number of different schools and settings along with several leading charities such as ‘Chai Cancer Care’ and ‘Camp Simcha’ UK. Much of my career has included working with children of special needs and a wide range of other backgrounds. I have also worked with adult populations battling addiction and depression as well as families coping with terminal illness. Prior to working with children I spent a great deal of time providing therapy to refugees and female victims of human trafficking and have also been fortunate enough in servicing elderly communities, including Holocaust survivors and dementia sufferer’s.
