In my past I have lived in different countries, including France, Italy, Libya, Argentina and Monte Carlo. The different experiences and cultures have shaped me as an individual and have given me a broader perspective on life and on the challenges that everyone can face in his/ her life. I also learned the importance of “cultural context”.
As a psychologist, I have an eclectic approach: I offer evidence-based psychological therapy and counselling, using different techniques or methodologies, always tailored to suit the individual and its needs. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy (ST), Voice Dialogue (VD) and, in case of trauma treatment, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
I speak fluently Dutch, English, Spanish and Italian, and work with expats as well as with locals.
Psyche – ψυχή What does it mean?
In Greek and Roman antiquity, the butterfly was the symbol of the soul. When a butterfly first hatches, it has no wings – it is only a caterpillar. Over time, the caterpillar develops until it is ready to realize its true potential.
Through personal development we can grow and free ourselves, to experience life to the fullest. Psyche aims to help all people, to reach their natural potential & authenticity.
