Registered Psychologist in Israel
Diddy Mymin Verified
Registered Psychologist in Israel
Dr. Diddy Mymin (PsyD, Clinical Psychology) has over 25 years of experience working as a skilled clinical psychologist and professional advisor and trauma specialist to humanitarian aid organizations around the world.
Born in South Africa and educated in Israel and the UK, Diddy has broad experience working as a private therapist with adults and children in a variety of settings in the UK, Hong Kong and Israel. Utilizing a wide range of therapeutic approaches, Diddy has worked extensively with traumatic stress and PTSD including sexual, physical and childhood abuse, eating disorders, anxiety, phobias, depression, relationship difficulties and with generalized existential anxiety and depression.* Especially given her unique international background and training, Diddy has particular expertise in counseling and coaching clients from diverse backgrounds and cultures, especially immigrant and expatriate communities, including traveling, gap year and third/fourth culture clients of all ages.
Most importantly, Diddy provides a safe and professional therapy space for anyone experiencing mental health problems or other psychological, emotional, behavioral or relationship issues. The breadth of her experience and training enables her to tailor her approach to what works best for each person. She approaches therapy sessions collaboratively, holistically and eclectically and offers a range of evidence-based therapeutic approaches. She works together with each client (and, when relevant, alongside family members and/or other advisors) to agree on an individualized treatment plan most suited to bringing about transformation, healing and insights, as well as developing resilience and tools to resolve difficulties outside of therapy as well.
In addition to her private practice as a therapist, Diddy has worked for over three decades as a psychologist, supervisor, trainer and group facilitator with organizations in the UK, Hong Kong, Israel, Sierra Leone, Philippines and Haiti, including as a mental health adviser for international humanitarian NGO IsraAID in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean. Closer to home, Diddy is the co-founder, CEO and head psychologist of Kuchinate, an award-winning Tel-Aviv based NGO that provides rehabilitation to victims of torture and human trafficking. In addition to working in English (her mother tongue) Diddy is also available for therapy and consulting in Hebrew as well.
