A few words about me
Since rapport and trust is the fundamental basis of a good therapeutic relationship here are some bits about me and my goals as a psychologist.
I studied psychology in Leiden University. The reason I choose the field was my deep wish to understand how humans relate to themselves as units and consequently to each other as social beings. I did my Master’s in Clinical Neuropsychology. I choose this specialization because of my interest in topics such as consciousness and the underlying neurological factors of mental illness.
During this period, I did my Internship in GGZ Rivierduinen where I had sessions with clients who experienced depression, anxiety and stress due to being expats. I have worked in the context of gender-based violence, providing psychological support to women who were survivors of sexual, psychological, and domestic abuse. Additionally, I have been working for more than a year in a refugee camp, providing psychological support to refugees and asylum seekers.
I believe that therapy is the process of using the positive parts of one’s self to work on the ones that they struggle with. Through empathy, kindness and non-judgmental understanding for anything that you want to bring to the session.
