    About Therapist

    Noga is registered with over 25 years experience. She enjoys working with individuals and couples  on relationship issues to improve skills in communication, problem solving and conflict resolution. Initially working with individuals, she witnessed how strong, solid relationships can heal emotional wounds and empower growth. She developed expertise in relationship counselling while continuing to work with individuals, children and adolescents on various issues including depression, anxiety, stress, career and life transitions.

    Warm, genuine and compassionate, she seeks to create a safe, non-judgmental space to enable clients to open-up and reflect. Her strength is keeping a positive focus. She empowers clients to set meaningful goals and nurtures their capability to change. She builds, and relies on client engagement and commitment as the basis of treatment success, while problem-solving strategies are always discussed and tailored to suit each individual’s need and situation. She has also worked in corporate and organisational settings, consulting to companies and professional organisations to help individuals and teams to surmount career related issues.

    How many years counselling experience do you have?

    Over 25 years

    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?
    1. Warm, kind and empathetic
    2. Very experienced; genuinely caring
    3. Practical
    What is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work you do?

    I love helping people and I feel privileged to do this for a job. When relationships improve, individuals become happier and able to perform, create and achieve. This is the most rewarding aspect of my work.

    What’s an example of a couple you have helped the most?

    I used Emotional Focused Therapy to help one couple reconnect after a long period of little emotional intimacy. Dealing with life stresses had caused them to turn away from each other and rely on external measures, including alcohol and work to cope. During counselling they started to turn towards each other and re-discover each other for support and healing. This helped them to reconnect. She became better balanced and he recovered from dependence on alcohol.
