Before I became a clinical psychologist,
I was a patient
Two subjects. One room.
Verbal communication. Mental notes.
Writing has always been a way of expressing my anxieties. Then, music became a way to contain them.
Music enables thinking, representing and forming inaccessible and elusive thoughts. Just as Psychotherapy does.
no one is immune
Liad is a Clinical Psychologist (Ph.D.) and a musician based in Tel Aviv.
