I am an experienced and passionate therapist and trainer. I am also the Director and Co-founder of the Encounter Learning Centre -an institute dedicated to helping people (professional and non-professionals) make sense of relationships and improve them.

I have a particular interest in Relationship issues and have, for many years now, explored these areas of life. I gained expertise and experience in assisting couples and individuals who face challenges in their relationships.

Holding a master’s degree in Clinical Studies I have had extensive advanced training in relationship and couples therapy. Trained in both Israel and the UK, I am among other things a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist and recently finished my training as an Imago “Connected Parents/Thriving Kids” workshop presenter. I have accumulated extensive experience in coaching, holding and assisting numerous couples through powerful transformation into having more connection and intimacy in their relationships.

In the last 8 years I have worked closely with Hedy & Yumi Schleifer, organizing, assisting in, and supporting the development and introduction of Encounter-centered Couples Therapy. Their last visit to the UK this year was a very successful event, drawing attention from professionals and the public, and a staggering positive feedback.

I have more than 15 years of professional experience, working in both public and private sectors, and in various fields including Mental Illnesses, Post Trauma and more. I am a senior member of the National Council of Psychotherapists (MNCP, Snr Accred.), a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP) and work within thier Ethical Framework. I am also an accredited member of IRI (Imago Relationship International) and of IMAGO UK.
