A few words about me
I am an expat psychologist currently working in The Netherlands. Even though I have Filipino/Dutch roots and started from a Filipino based school, I moved into an international high school, and finally moved to the Netherlands to complete my higher education in international institutions. This has allowed me to acquaint myself with different cultures and personalities.
Before practicing psychology here in the Netherlands, I completed a clinical internship in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre in Thailand. Being exposed not only to the various difficulties these individuals have experienced, but also to the holistic approach to treatment, using different techniques, and including practices such as mindfulness and meditation.
I individualise each treatment depending on the specific needs of each client, as I believe it to be extremely important in achieving the best positive outcome.
I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), but I do believe in the continuous pursuit of knowledge, to become well-versed in different and new evidence-based practices and strategies to apply in our sessions, accustoming to the needs of each client. Therefore, I currently incorporate approaches not only from CBT but also from schema therapy and mindfulness-based interventions.
