Get Help Israel’s aim is to verify the accuracy and updated information of the name, contact details and credentials of the therapist; and that the therapist is not subject to any licensing restrictions. Get Help Israel seeks to verify the factual accuracy of the information about the therapist at the time that he/she is listed in the directory, and every year annually at the time of renewal of the registration. Get Help Israel is not responsible for any change of credentials of the therapist in the interim period following such registration and/or renewal of registration of the therapists in its directory.
While Get Help Israel seeks to verify the factual accuracy regarding information pertaining to the therapists listed in its directory, Get Help Israel does not confirm the truth or accuracy as to what the therapists have represented to Get Help Israel or what they have requested to be listed and made public on the Site. Persons considering contacting any of the therapists listed in the directory are urged to conduct their own independent investigation and evaluation before retaining his/her services.
Caroline Hacohen MA, PsyDAssessment/Testing Specialist
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.
