About me and my therapy practice

After having obtained my Master's degree in Psychology at Amsterdam University, I worked for several years in the Psychiatric Department of the National Hospital for Nervous Diseases, now called the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, a London teaching hospital. As the department dealt with complex cases referred from all over the UK, it gave me the necessary competence and experience to set up subsequently in private practice which suited my family circumstances at the time. I have now been in private practice for over 30 years. Recent advances in IT have made it possible to also offer e-counselling and therapy via Skype to people who would like to see me but live too far away.

My special interest is the trans-generational effects of trauma, particularly in relation to the Holocaust. I have facilitated second generation groups for adult children of Holocaust survivors and refugees from Nazi-persecution in London for over >25 years and have also facilitated frequently child survivor and second generation groups in Berlin and Prague. I am a Patron of the Prague-based Rafael Institute and have presented many papers in the UK, Prague and more recently in Germany.

I offer short-term individual therapy, using CBT and solution-focused techniques, as well as longer term therapy following psycho-dynamic and other treatment models: rather than using a single approach I use what I believe will best suit the client's needs. In view of the fact that I have seen over the years a large number of clients from diverse cultural backgrounds and with many different issues, I seem to be able to apply the insights gained to the best advantage of my clients.

I was born and grew up in Holland and came to the UK in 1973.
