I use the evidence-based ACT model of psychological flexibility as the foundation for my therapeutic work. Within the ACT model, it is possible for me to work evidence-based while using a variety of techniques, including conversational techniques, hypnosis, and mindfulness. When you attend sessions with me you could get daily exercises to accelerate change. You can expect me to be accessible, attentive and non judgemental. I focus on what you want to achieve and we move the things out of the way that limit you so that can start living the life you desire.

From 2006 I studied Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies at Radboud University Nijmegen. I researched how we can change our perception of reality by changing our language use. I was interested in how we give meaning to life and how our beliefs structure parts of our reality.
In 2011 I did my bachelor research on hypnotic trance. Something that has many forms and is used therapeutically in hypnotherapy. In 2013 I graduated from the University of Amsterdam with a research project on how language influences our perception of reality.
After obtaining my Master's degree, I had a successful dance career for about ten years. In the meantime I did various courses in the direction of coaching and therapy. In the end, I started an apprenticeship with Henk Hoenderdos to become a psychosocial therapist and hypnotherapist. In addition, I immersed myself extensively in ACT therapy and followed training courses, developed and given by ACT founder Steven Hayes. In ACT, one learns, among other things, to relate differently to linguistic thought processes, but also to feelings so that they are no longer experienced as problematic. Mindfulness is part of ACT and in order to further develop my skills in this area, I recently completed a trainer training.
In the therapist profession I can connect my interests, experiences and strengths.
