I am a female counselor psychologist. I work using the method of positive psychotherapy.

My credo is the following: “Problems are a part of our life. But problems are only one part of life! “. Difficult situations happen with us for a reason, it is a life lesson, after which you become smarter, stronger and feel yourself a free person.

My mission is to help women feel happy, find peace in the soul and harmony in relationships, become more self-confident.

I love my job and I like being a volunteer. Once in a difficult situation psychology changed my life. And now I want to help those who need it. I know that there is a way out and life is beautiful from the very beginning. Everyone has a huge internal resource, and people often do not even know about it. …

A little more about myself – I love my children and husband as well as my fluffy cat; I adore reading books; I am inspired by walks and spring. I like to spend time with funny, good people …

It is cool to be a volunteer!

I went to BF “Hesed Khan” when I was a child, but as the active participant of the youth club and the volunteer, I have joined it in 2014. “Here I was attracted by the friendly atmosphere of the youth club and an opportunity to do something interesting for yourself and, perhaps, important for someone else” – says Misha Khodorkovsky.
Together with the volunteers of MK Misha participated in the program for fund raising for children ill with autism, within the program of the Day of Good Deeds. I have taken part in a trip to the school for problem children, within Mas’s project, I helped with the work of the BF “Hesed Khan” volunteer program.
“It is pleasant to me because helping the others, you, spending your time and efforts, can see that gratitude which they give you because they couldn’t cope themselves with it. As for me, the volunteering is the manifestation of the good things, if all the people are kinder, the world will become better”.

If you are looking for a volunteer who wants to participate in everything that happens, so this is Julia Potikha. That is what Julia says about herself: “Hi. My name is Julia, I am 20 years old. I am a student, a poetess and, simply, a volunteer.

The Volunteer Center, unfortunately, she did not enter immediately, it was with the help of the Youth Club “Derech” in Beit Grand. What for do I volunteer? I do volunteering work, in order to direct my energy, which is more than enough, to the right direction. It is very important to feel useful to those who surround me. And also it is important to develop yourself in various interesting directions.
The relevance of volunteerism, of course, is that there are always people in need of assistance. And, the most important moment is, that there is always someone who will gladly help them.
The volunteering is the relationship between the thousands of people who work as one big body. For someone to screw a light bulb is the difficult work, but for someone else, it is like to click your finger. So, why not to introduce them for the successful cooperation. Thanks to such work the society blooms in my eyes. This gives me the faith in the surrounding world, invaluable experience and good people. »

Hi, everybody! My name is Katya. The volunteer I became one and a half year ago and I can tell that volunteering became an integral part of my life. I will begin from the very beginning, once I have thought that it would be possible to try myself as the volunteer, I looked for the suitable organization, but could not find it and everything has ended. As it is told, everything is good in its season. The volunteer I became absolutely incidentally. One fine day, when I had nothing to do, the invitation to help with the cleaning in the office of hematology has arrived. And here it has begun – School of Volunteers, “Krysha” theater, the trips to an orphan school, a hospital clownery, an action “The Heart to Heart”, volunteer camp, etc. In the volunteer movement “Create Good, Ukraine” I have got new friends. Every time there are acquaintances to new interesting people. I can safely declare that “Create good, Ukraine” gives me a lot of the opportunities to develop. I became surer, better contact to people, more rationally, and, above all, , I spend the time with the advantage, I had had an aspiration to submit new heights, and I constantly study something (whether it is the hand-made articles or the skills how to occupy the attention of the audience). Volunteering – is unambiguous cool!
