In 2006, Michal was chosen to star on the Israeli version of Supernanny, an international reality TV show, broadcast on Channel 2 (currently named Keshet, Channel 12). Throughout the eight consecutive seasons of the show, Michal guided and supported numerous parents who were struggling to raise and educate their children in an optimal manner. Michal had the privilege of accompanying these families along the road to their long-awaited change within the family setting, based on her vast knowledge and experience in the field. Needless to say, the show was a huge success.
Michal has also been hosting a weekly call-in talk show on Radio 103fm (Israel) since 2008, where listeners can receive heartfelt advice on parenting matters.
Yet how did this all begin? As Michal explains, “My love of children, combined with my desire to contribute to their upbringing and education, led me to embark on the profession of early childhood educator (many years ago).”
But what made you expand into the field of family counselling?
“The fifteen years in which I worked with young children led me to understand that creating positive change among children is possible, is within our reach. I also realized that the primary, most significant environment for young children is their family unit, the home in which they are raised and educated.”
“At the same time, as a struggling young mother of four, I found myself needing parenting guidance. I was dealing with a number of issues with my own children but couldn’t find a solution. Years later, when I discovered the field of family counselling, everything just fell into place. It was then that I decided to learn how to provide parents with professional guidance and direction. I realized that this is my true calling: offering parents the much-needed support and assistance that was unavailable to me all those years ago.”
