Originally from the Netherlands I have lived in Scotland since 1984. I have always felt inspired by the arts in all its forms. It informed my early work as an artist-craftsman and continues to be central to my work as a psychotherapist.

For 20 years I worked as a senior manager in mental health where I had a responsibility for policy and service development. I continue to deliver training to staff and management teams as a consultant.

I have been registered with UKCP as a psychotherapist since 2003. For 10 years I was a senior faculty member with the Institute of Psychosynthesis until 2019 and continue to support students completing their MA thesis.

I completed the following training.

  • MA Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy validated by Middlesex University
  • Diploma Psychosynthesis Therapeutic Counselling
  • a Certificate in Psychodynamic supervision with the Scottish Institute of Human Relations
  • a Foundation in Group Analysis with the Institute of Group Analysis

My current work in private practice consists of

  • individual psychotherapy and counselling
  • clinical supervision
  • training and consultancy work with organisations
