A few words about me
I studied Psychology at Leiden University and got my master’s degree in Clinical Psychology.. My area of expertise is eating disorders. If you are struggling with your body image, I am here to help! Feel free to also check out my Instagram blog @realistic.body.therapist, where I post daily content on eating disorders.
I have been trained in Schema Therapy under the guidelines of International Society of Schema Therapy (ISST) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) according to the standards of Beck Institute. I am working under the supervision of an experienced therapist. Learning is a never-ending process so I am always looking out for opportunities to improve myself. I also follow the literature on a regular basis to keep myself up-to-date. My Therapeutic Approach: I have training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Schema Therapy. However, I choose to practice integrative therapy, which means I combine techniques from different approaches according to my client’s needs. The area of my focus is eating disorders, however, eating disorders cannot be isolated from other disorders; they are usually accompanied by other problems such as depression, trauma, and emotional dysregulation. Consequently, I also work with these problems alongside eating disorder treatment.
My Client Groups: I provide psychological services/therapy to adults struggling with their body image. I'm here to help you improve your relationship with food and have a healthier relationship with your body. It does not make a difference whether you are struggling with an eating disorder or disordered eating or you simply dislike your body. I am not focused much on diagnoses, if you are struggling and would like some help; then I am here for you!
