Why Avi Benmordechai chose to be in the helping profession

I became a therapist for a variety of reasons, one of the main reasons was to genuinely help people. I have a desire to make a positive difference in the lives of others, and becoming a therapist was a way to do that. Growing up I have always found fulfillment in being able to provide support and guidance to people who are going through difficult times. Additionally, I also enjoy the intellectual challenge of working with people to help them better understand themselves and their challenges. Finally, I am personally interested in the field of psychology and mental health, and wanted to be able to work in a profession that allows me to explore those interests.
