I’ve known Iris as a lecturer and a professional in the field of therapy through our work together.
In my opinion, Iris is endowed with a rare combination of empathy and sensitivity on one hand, and on the other a very high level of professionalism and analytical ability. Her honesty and straightforwardness, along with her perception of “going on a journey together”, are what in opinion guides her methodology. This enables people to easily connect with her, professionally and emotionally, and make significant progress in their lives.
I wholeheartedly recommend Iris Hertz.

It had the pleasure of working with Iris as her employer since October 2011 in my physiotherapy clinic – PhysioKit – in Camden Medical Centre, Singapore.
For the past two years, Iris has been Programme Director at PhysioKit for mentoring, supporting and supervising patients who needed to make a change in their life through physical activity and mental awareness. She has demonstrated outstanding talents in management and administration of the programme as well as in the clinical practice sphere, and is considered an excellent manager for the mental health programme at the clinic.
Iris took initiative to significantly promote the rehab treatment programme and the mental health outpatient clinic programme. She was able to greatly increase staffing and funding for these services. Consequently the clinic was able to promote the “Kit-Fit” programme with doctors such as cardiologists, orthopaedics, endocrinologists and gynaecologists in the leading hospitals and medical centres in Singapore, in the likes of Mt. Elizabeth hospital, Gleneagles hospital and others.
Iris possesses exceptional competencies, compassion and ethics as a psychologist. In providing a broad spectrum of psychological treatment, she has more than proven her ability to bring value to my clinic in that domain, and was able to identify and attract patients in need of a full or partial rehab programme. At the same time, her commitment to the patients is extremely high and her cooperative working relations with the referring doctors allow patients to receive high-quality treatment and professional advice. Results are shown in no-time.
Fortunately, Iris’ knowledge, skills and expertise come “packaged” in a wonderfully friendly, witty, sincere and caring human being. She is sensitive, open-minded, and respected by patients, peers, subordinates and superiors alike.
I am confident that Iris will continue to shine wherever she goes, and recommend her unhesitatingly.

My acquaintance with Iris Hertz began when she started teaching the Early Childhood Movement course at Wingate Institute. As soon as Iris stepped into the classroom, my students and I saw an impressive, noble and pleasant woman, with a big smile.
As the course continued to progress, we embraced Iris’ professionalism in psychology, and she enriched us with her vast knowledge, that was passed on in clear, fascinating and interesting manner.
Iris was attentive to all that was happening in her course, specifically students’ personal needs and her commitment to professional knowledge.
As Head of the Early Childhood Creative Movement Department, I saw Iris as an important character in our staff of teachers.
I am grateful I had the chance to meet a professional such as Iris, with profound knowledge and experience with children, adolescent and parents. She knows how to answer every need, question, thought or fear that might rise in children of all ages. Iris continues to assist and support even while living in Southeast Asia, however I still hope and wait for her return to Israel so we can continue to work and develop together.

I’ve known Iris for eight years from our work together at the Wingate Institue in Israel. During these years I developed a deep friendship and appreciation for Iris, both as a lecturer and as a person.
Iris took part in lectures in courses I organized at the Wingate Institute about developmental psychology.
The course organizers at the institute liked working with Iris, as did the students. She is very professional in her lectures – Iris relays the material clearly, paying close attention to students’ questions and needs. Iris is always pleasant and kind to everyone, treating all in a fair and unbiased manner. She is attentive and happy to fully answer any question, always with a smile.
Even after our work together came to an end, we knew that we can contact her with any question we had, and she would always be happy to help.

Dearest Iris ,
This is not the most ideal way to express my gratitude yet it is one i insist on. We gave our troubled teen to you a few years ago and in return you salvaged her and us . No words can do justice regarding your contributions to this herculean task, so i will simply say this .
As a family we are deeply indebted and appreciative of all that you did for us . Ananya is a renewed child, full of confidence, grace, wisdom and strength and to a large extent you have been single handedly responsible for her turnaround. Every person needs a mentor , a guide , a listening ear and a shoulder to cry on and you have been all of the above for her . We are in awe of the trust and faith she invests in you and hope that your relationship and guidance only strengthens in the years ahead. We expressed our opinion regarding her renewed confidence and a wish that she try and navigate life on her own for a while. However, that does not mean she is never allowed to see you again. We have conveyed to Anya that she is welcome to turn to you as and when she wishes, as long as she keeps us in the loop…nothing more, nothing less , without any details as she misunderstood clearly .
Please keep her in your heart always and accommodate her as and when she reaches out . On our part we intend to support her every need and wish that in turn helps her become the best version of herself.
Respect and admiration always ,

Just a quick note of thanks for the wonderful support you have offered Felix over the past months. You have completely gained his trust (which is not easy to do), and were able to guide him towards making some better choices and gaining confidence.
It is normal that as kids grow and evolve, there always remain things to guide, correct and encourage but a little sign of your influence.
Seeing his wonderful smile back on his face is the best gift for me and Anthony, period!
We know you are still in our corner, and very much appreciate that but wanted to recognize your invaluable support during a time which was our most challenging to date.
Upwards and onwards now!
Kind regards and have a happy weekend,
