Cognitive Behavioural Therapists' Summary

evilphish

I previously wrote to Linux-IL about me seeking a Cognitive-Behavioural Therpist in the Tel-Aviv area. I received several replies in private. Here is a summary of them:

  1. I was referred to Mekhon Psagot, which has a clinique in Tel-Aviv, in the Rabin Square area. I went to a meeting with a therapist there on Thursday, and it went very well. Note that it was an ad-hoc meeting, until my usual therapist returns from abroad, and not the beginning of a permanent commitment.

  2. Someone referred me to Mifne which are located in Haifa, so it was a bit too far.

  3. Someone thanked me for my contributions to FOSS, and said he wished I'd be well. Such encouragement is always appreciated. Thanks.

  4. I got some other emails.

Thanks to all the people who replied!

Hi, I just found this post, and I hope things are working out for you with therapy...I am very interested in mental health profession and study of the mind.

Actually, um, sorry I linked your letter up to the philosophy post, I immediately realized, the moral law within me said, that was a wrong thing to do, actually an ad hominem fallacy, so feel free to delete that comment.

OK.
That's quite OK - apology accepted. I'm not sure I cannot delete the comment there and won't. If you prefer, you can post a reply to that there apologising as well.

Re: OK.
No problem, I took care of it. I realized that I could delete it myself. :)

Re: OK.
And I did post a reply there apologizing, but then I deleted that as well because it didn't make sense anymore in the context, but I know that the people who read the original comment also saw that when it was there.

Because I know what it's like to have mental health troubles and to be seeking therapy, and I surely would not want people judging me in a negative way for that.

Cognitive Behavioral Psychologist in TA
just found this...may be too late but I go to a cognitive-behavioral psychologist in Tel Aviv. He is excellent. He specializes in CBT. His name is Ohad Hershkovitz. His info is at www.psychcafe.net

Hope you find what you are looking for!

Re: Cognitive Behavioral Psychologist in TA
Thanks for the recommendation. I already managed and now I have regular meetings with my normal therapist.
