I started my practice in 2017. Before that, I worked as a management and HR consultant till I felt I needed to change course. Returning to my old love for psychology, I took training as a therapist and coach both in England and the Netherlands. Every year I follow further training.
It is my intention to discover together what is going on and what you need. With an open mind, I ask questions to see what has happened and is happening to you. This concerns your thoughts and what events mean to you, and I help to allow yourself to feel your emotions. In consultation and with your consent I use methods such as EMDR to enhance your resilience and recovery process.
I am a mother of two grown-up children. In my spare time I like to do rowing and speed skating. Being outside, doing sports together with others, and enjoying the ‘flow’. In the winter season, I give a a couple of hours skating lessons every week at ice rink Haarlem.
