I am a Dutch psychologist with extensive experience in mental health care as well as personal experience with emigration and living abroad. Since my graduation in 1992 from the Radboud University in Nijmegen in clinical psychology, I have worked in different settings and several fields (clinical psychology, occupational and organizational psychology and somatic health care). As a result, I am also well versed in work-related issues.
I have specific knowledge and experience in working with clients with psychological symptoms and problems arising from adverse childhood experiences. Not only sexual abuse or severe neglect, but also childhood experiences that are usually considered quite normal can result in detachment from the true self. The work of Alice Miller, who has written extensively on the critical importance of childhood for later life, has profoundly influenced me. Concretely, I like to help clients emotionally understand the source of their symptoms and problems and I position myself deliberately on the side of the inner child.
