  • and a researcher on career counseling, body psychotherapy, death and dying, sexuality and manhood.

  • Share my gifts

  • Personal growth and spirituality

  • Human connection

    : those are my core values and that’s what I offer as a psychotherapist and facilitator.

Although I value spirituality a lot, I have no specific religion. When I was 15 I understood that there is wisdom in every religion so I decided to learn about all of them.

My goal is freedom of being. Freedom from the delusions of who I am, who is the other and what is the world. Freedom from attachment and aversion; where compassion and peace can blossom. Freedom to express myself and make my own choices with responsability and autonomy.

  • Releasing stress and trauma (Israel and Australia)
    Through an innovative technique called TRE - Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises, developed by Dr. David Berceli, it's possible to help people release deep tensions and stress that are locked in the body and the nervous system. It's not only about developing mental strategies, but to reach the root of the question.
  • Embodied Decision Making: awakening your intuition (Israel and Australia) 
    Most of the time people loose their capacity to listen to the information their bodies give about the environment, situations, people, opportunities. We can re-connect to this natural wisdom and intuition, which can support us in many life situations.
