ABOUT

I see counselling as a sacred journey embarked upon by two or more people who are literally putting their hearts into my hands.  I treat each client as an individual, and together we tailor-make a treatment modality that best suits his/her personality, style of working and needs.  I have almost thirty years of experience in working with individuas, couples and have also held many family sessions in order to  mediate and negotiate conflictual situations.

Having made aliyah myself five years ago, I know and understand the difficulites many people experience.A great deal of people are often embarrased to admit to family and friends that they are not coping as they feel ashamed.  I am here for you without judjement.

I have also facilitated many training groups teaching people basic counselling skills encompassing self-awareness, empathy, communication skills, conflict resolution etc, and so am well acquainted with difficulties people experience in being authentic and in knowing and expressing their true selves.

In my therapy room I endeavour to practice a non judgemental attitiude so that my clients can feel free to express themselves and to come to accept and embrace all of themselves.  I work eclectically, based on the particular client in front of me.  I employ modalities other than talk therapy if needed such as  journalling, role playing, music, poetry, visualisation etc.  I also explore lifestyle choices such as healthy eating choices, exercise, adequate intake of water, enough restorative sleep etc as all of these factors play a crucial role in mental as well as in physical health.

The duration of therapy can either be short term solution- focused, or long term, depending on the nature of the issues involved and of the needs of the client.

I welcome you to contact me if you feel synergy with what I have to offer.
