Thank you. Thank you for having me. Very exciting.

So let's start our conversation and tell us 10 facts about yourself.

I am leading a team of females gorgeous females in a non for profit organisation. On my spare time, I love playing volleyball, listening to podcasts, listening to audiobooks, meditating, practising yoga, walking and running. And just chilling out.

So that's nice. And you said you came here for almost five years ago. Where did you live? before?

I moved from Israel. Israel is my home. Yeah. So I'm lucky to call Australia home nowadays. But I was born and raised in Israel.

I always wanted to go there and visit the dead see.

Israel is a beautiful, beautiful place to visit and beautiful places, beautiful people. So family, friends or back in Israel. And coming to Australia. For me, it was really a beautiful adventure that I feel super grateful for.

So you mentioned that you have three kids. Are they adult So how old they are?

Yeah, so my oldest is? My oldest daughter is 17 years old. My son is 14 years old. And my daughter is almost 10. Wow. Yeah.

So you have a mixture like teenagers and almost a teenager?

Absolutely. It's quite a transition. Quite a transition in motherhood to become a mother for teenagers.

That's for sure. Yes,yeah. Chitra probably can relate as well. Yeah,

no doubt. No doubt.

So well. You mentioned that you have you work for nonprofit organisation. Do you have your own practice like your private practice?

Yes. So aside from my management role and you know, contributing to non for profit, which I absolutely love, I have my private practice. I see clients for psychotherapy, counselling, couples, individuals and empowerment, mentoring programmes. I love working with women, empowering women. So that's where you can find me so You're probably by my website That's my website you can read more about me my background, my approach who I am and feel a bit of my vibe. I'm actually here across the streets in the CBD. So for face to face sessions, I have a practice here in the CBD Sydney.

That's great.

And online, obviously, in today's world, I do yeah, I do zoom. So I see people from all around the world actually.

So what's your favourite? I know every psychotherapist have their favorite themes. So you said you like empowering women? And so is that like you work with? Because I know that some are specialising in teenagers, with women or couples counselling or like, what's your specific?

so my favourite area would be differently adults, couples and individuals. So my approach to mental health is a bit different than the conservative medical model. So I see symptoms of mental health, whichever symptoms were there that can be diagnosed in various names like depression, anxiety, and so forth. So these symptoms are just an expression of something deeper rooted in our upbringing in our life circumstances. So that's, you know, trauma is my language, trauma informed. Counselling is what I specialise in. And I think the word trauma has pretty bad public relations. So people assume that trauma is the big event that happened to you. And actually trauma is something a little different trauma, I can say more about that. But you know, that would take us somewhere else. But I do believe we all are experiencing trauma impacts, we're just not as educated around what our trauma impacts and how can we navigate and heal from that. So I'm a big believer in transformation and healing. So that's my favourite work and that type of work, you can actually do with any diagnosis or any presentation at any stage of life. So my favourite part is to see the transformation happening in the therapy room or outside of therapy room, because I work with groups as well. So that's with female coming, females coming together nowadays, such as your beautiful project and and other initiatives aroun
