I offer short-term psychological support in the form of one-to-one sessions in Sheffield (S11) and online. I can help you with issues like anxiety, panic or depressive feelings. I am also able to help you with all kinds of life events, like a divorce, a disease you struggle with or difficulties you face at home or work. In my work, I often see people hindered by fixed but not helpful patterns of thinking or acting. Breaking through these can relieve a lot of complaints.
In my sessions, I work in line with the principles or cognitive behavioural therapy, ACT and mindfulness. I also offer (group) training courses in mindfulness.
CBT, mindfulness and ACT can be used extremely effectively for short-term psychological treatment. It represents a transparent, practical way of working which is based on the present. In a limited number of sessions, my aim is to give clients the tools they need to help themselves in the future. This does not mean that all their problems will be solved, but it does change the way in which they perceive these problems and deal with them.
Training, qualifications & experience
I graduated in Clinical Psychology from the University of Amsterdam in 1996.
I have been working in the short-term psychological health-care field for over fifteen years in different settings. I've had my own private practice CdK in the Netherlands until my move to the UK (Summer 2017).
As well as my work experience, I have also followed additional studies, including a training program to qualify as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and I am accredited by the EABCT (European Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Therapy). Here in the UK I'm a member of the BPS and BACP.

Sometimes it's more convenient to meet each other online, for example when you're travelling or not able to leave your home.
Online therapy has many advantages:
- Nice and easy from the privacy of your own home.
- Save yourself from rain, snow, traffic jams and parking problems.
- Time-efficient with easy scheduling including evening slots.
- Competitive rates compared to face to face sessions.
All you need is a high-speed Wi-Fi connection and a tablet, laptop or desktop computer. We'll use Zoom, an easy and reliable cloud platform for video and audio conferencing in a secure environment.
