Dr. Gil Erlich

I work as a psychologist in three different therapeutic fields.

In a private clinic, where I work as a clinical psychologist. At the clinic I get mostly patients dealing with depression, anxiety, eating disorders and lack of satisfaction in life. I see them 1-3 times a week and the treatment is essentially psychotherapeutic.

In day care in a hospital as a clinical psychologist. In day care, patients who need higher therapeutic holding and handling than regular out-patients, reach about seven hours a day, and receive therapy that include group therapies, expression and creative therapies, and psychological therapies. Day care allows (as opposed to full hospitalization) to self-fulfillment beyond the therapeutic space’ in daily life (work, studies, relationships, etc.). The treatment as part of the day care provides accompaniment by a multi-disciplinary team.
