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.
Ruth Perednik MEd, MASchool Psychologist
Is your child or teen suffering from selective mutism, general anxiety, shyness, social anxiety, or emotional dysregulation such as outbursts, anger, sadness, withdrawal or frustration?
I am an expert psychologist, and head the Selective Mutism and Anxiety Treatment Center, based in Jerusalem but treating children and teens throughout Israel (and the world!) I have developed a groundbreaking, effective and empowering treatment for selective mutism, published research and a bestselling book in English and Hebrew – currently being translated to Chinese. I have treated thousands of children with selective mutism, using my cognitive behavioral approach. I supervise therapists and train professionals in Israel and around the world.
I also treat children with anxiety disorders and emotional regulation issues, using a warm, caring, cognitive behavioral approach. My aim is always to improve the child or teen’s quality of life in his day-to-day experience – whatever gain is achieved in therapy should be reflected in a happier, more relaxed child.
