My name is Ruthi Forer and I'm a VERY curious person.
Hi! As a dedicated Somatic Practitioner, my commitment lies in assisting you to foster a deeper connection with your body, alleviate tension, and cultivate effective strategies for stress and trauma management. A significant part of my work involves empowering you to connect deeply with yourselves, enabling you to make clear, self-aligned decisions and navigate through your relationships.
Specializing in Sexuality, Tantra, Trauma/nervous system regulation, and Yoga Therapy, my approach is transformative and empowering. I firmly believe in the inherent healing ability within each individual and see my role as a guide in helping you unlock this intrinsic potential. The focus here is on you and how I can support your journey towards self-discovery and healing.
My approach blends Yoga Therapy, Embodiment Yoga Principles, Sex Therapy (conversation), dynamic tools from Tantra Therapy, meditation & mindfulness, breathwork, TRE – Tension Releasing Exercises, Nonviolent Communication, Focusing, Family Constellation, Polyvagal Theory, and other somatic (body) approaches.
I offer in-person sessions in Jerusalem, Jaffa, and Tel Aviv as well as online. I accompany people on a journey to self-healing with these techniques, not only reserved for the field of sexuality.
I take a holistic approach, believing we are an organism comprised of many parts that interact with and influence each other. I am a curious person, empowering you to access your own inner healer and find your own voice and authenticity. I believe in authentic communication and being in touch and attunement with you and your individual pace.
I work deeply, going to the root of the symptoms. I believe whatever issues you’re facing, whether they be illness, physical symptoms, relationship issues, career path, etc, are just presenting symptoms of something far deeper. I help you uncover childhood wounds, patterns, and ways of behavior that are embedded in us, learning how to create and embody real change.
Our work together might confront you and will probably be challenging, and that’s okay! Everything is on the table to openly discuss. I believe the therapist-client relationship is an important one, a microcosmic of what you’ve got going on outside.
There’s no quick fix in healing. It takes time. I believe in “more is less”. Our nervous systems are delicate and need time to process and integrate change. You can sign up for a 10-session process with a very specific goal, but I recommend dedicating yourself to a journey, however long that will take. Because we are working with the body, the process is generally very effective. But it very much depends on you participating in the process.
It’s a cooperative journey, where the dedication and time that you put in will affect the outcome.

“When I saw Ruthi’s post about who she is and what she offers, I couldn’t reach out fast enough! My partner and I had been struggling against the fallout of my sexual traumas for years, and felt like we were fighting a losing battle that was dragging us both down - it was exhausting. Ruthi worked with us both together and individually, educating us on trauma, and working with my body to rewire the fear and pain I was experiencing with intimacy. We also strengthened our communication, learnt how to create our own space, set boundaries, and deepen our ability to connect with each other. We were on this journey with Ruthi for about a year, and I am still in awe of the huge progress we made as a couple, and as individuals. For those unsure about addressing one partner’s issues together, or if couples therapy is right for you, I assure you it is one of the best decisions we ever made. Don’t wait for something to be broken to fix it, learn how to make something stronger so it never breaks. With Ruthi you will heal from your original target, heal from things you didn’t know were sore, and learn a whole lot of tools to help you thrive. I cannot recommend her enough!”

“I worked with Ruthi to explore past traumas whose arms reach into my present relationships, personal expression, and sexual life causing me discomfort and fear. Ruthi really helped me unwind a lot of it using somatic techniques that were new to me and were very helpful for the process. I feel like I have made some very positive progress and I am very grateful for Ruthi’s guidance and professionalism, especially with some very sensitive topics.”
“I needed a safe space to explore certain blockages that I had surrounding my sexuality and feminine identity, and Ruthi provided just that. She created this space through her patience, gentleness and lucidity. She taught me tools to feel more grounded and connected to parts of myself that I didn’t know I could reach: different types of meditation, constellation, breathing and focusing techniques and much more. Even though this journey was tough at times, she was respectful of my specific needs and rhythm and is overall a fantastic listener.”
"Hey person-who's-been-watching-Ruthi-forever, You're still on the fence. I mean, everything she says resonates. You get excited when she posts. You most definitely have these issues. But you just assume they'll one day be gone when you've listened to the podcasts and read the posts and wished it away. There's nothing worth wasting your precious life on than the resistance to invest in yourself. Please stop trying to rationalize it, or persuade yourself otherwise. Work with Ruthi. She challenged me. Asked me the questions I avoided asking myself. Gave me all the space I needed to be a messy human. Held me. Supported me. Checked in on me. Laughed with me. Was a human next to me. And taught me that my body knows everything, including and most importantly, pleasure and love. Bus loads of love. I didn't leave with a good experience and some amazing quotes. I left with a practice and a skill set. I didn't get what I wanted - she gave me what I needed. I'm pivoted as a person. She gave me that permission to give myself permission. And I'm living in a van in the wild now - so I needed a lot of permission. Ruthi, you talk the talk, walk the walk, and breathe the breath. If you're debating, stop. Your life is too precious to play it softly."
