Training, qualifications & experience
My name is Eva Galestien (34).
I am a psychologist and in the United Kingdom registered member (MBPSs) of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and registered member (MBACP) of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). Furthermore I'm also a registered member of the Society of Behaviourism and Cognitive Therapy (VGCt) in the Netherlands.
In 2008 I graduated as Master of Science in Psychology at the University of Leiden (the Netherlands). Following this academic degree I successfully completed a five year Post Master in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
I work since 2002 in the mental healthcare profession and have eight years experience in the field of (cognitive behavioural) therapy in both primary and specialized health care. The knowledge and experience I have gained over the past years ranges from a broad scale of psychological issues (felt by well-balanced persons) to substantial psychological and psychiatric disorders (experienced by chronically traumatized persons).
I am able to offer counselling & cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) in Dutch and English.
