I am one of the pioneers in online psychotherapy, starting in 1999. Following me PhD research, which was the first comprehensive survey of online psychotherapy, I developed the first and only online clinic. If you can type fluently I invite you to experience this new kind of therapy, which is much better than face-to-face therapy. I also developed the new method of Emotional Training, which is an efficient way for a healthy and productive life that will help you cope with the challenges and stresses of the 21st century. You can read the first part of my book in the library of psychom. You are also invited to particiipate in my seminars at the Institute of Emotional Training in Bulgaria.

I was born in Jerusalem, 1954, in times of war. In the war of 1973 I was a young soldier in the Sinai desert. My hearing was damaged, and my personal experience with post-trauma was the main motive for developint the Emotional Traiing method and to work with PTSD veterans. In my first 40 years I lived in Jerusalem, studied music composition at the Rubin music academy and philosopy at the Hebrew university, I was the director of 'The Jerusalem Design Workshop' and served as an art director for 'Adam publishers', I was the CEO of the 'The Israeli Music Publication', publishe about 40 books for children, adults and professionals and served as an art curator.

In my training I specialized in Humanistic psychotherapy, Integrative psychotherapy, Existential psychotherapy, Communicative psychotherapy, and also in psychotheapy with physically disabled clients.
I worked as a psychotherapist in Brent 'Mind' and in 'Skylark', north London. In 1998 I moved back to Israel and worked in my private clinic. I have taught psychologists, psychiatrists, family doctors and educators in various psychotherapy schools (Technion school of psychotherapy in Rambam hospital, Zfat college school of psychotherapy in Zfat hospital, faculty of health in Ben Gurion university, Cogito School of Psychotherapy). I have also served as academic consultant to the Ministry of Education in Israel. I developed a special program for family doctors (doctor-patient relationships) for the main health services in Israel. I founded 'Cogito School of Psychotherapy' and a 3 year program in psychotherapy for professional psychologists, psychiatrists and psychotherapists, with a team of some of the bests lecturers in Israel. In 2009 I founded the 'Institute of Emotional Training' in Kyustendil, Bulgaria.
During my training as a psychotherapist I specialized in various approaches to psychotherapy: Humanistic therapy, Existential therapy, communicative therapy, narrative therapy and psychoanalytic-dynamic psychotherapy. I am an expert in Freud's case studies and edited the Hebrew edition, I researched online psychotherapy and developed the first, and only, online clinic.
I researched all kinds of psychotherapy, in order to find the common denomination of the 'therapeutic' work and to understand the link between therapeutic relationships and the ountcome of therapy. I wrote about it in some of my books and essays.
Following my research, I found that all therapeutic approaches ignore the emotions, so I developed the method of Emotional Training, that for the first time identify our seven inborn emotional skills and offer simple practice to improve them.
