I love to help people overcome their trauma’s. It is what makes me me.
To soften the pain in the world is my mission in life. It is the reason I became a psychotraumatologist, and the reason I do my work well.
I worked in many different settings, treating different kinds of people suffering from different types of trauma: people haunted by their past, survivors of child abuse, refugees, asylum seekers, victims of accidents, crimes or natural disasters, and, recently, victims of the terror attacks in Brussels.
I am member of the board and lecturer on the subject of psychotraumatology at the VUB (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), specializing in acute trauma and crisis intervention. I also give weekly crisis interventions, trainings, continuous education and supervisions in public and private organizations.
I have a master degree in philosophy. I studied integrative psychotherapy, was trained as a family mediator, and specialized in constellation work and psychotraumatology. I am a member of BIP (Belgian Institue for Psychotraumatology) and ESTSS (European Society for Traumatic Stress Studies) and have an ECP accreditation (European Certificate Psychotherapy).
With more than 10 years of experience, I carry countless real life stories of people in need with me. Many therapy sessions, interventions, exercises and outcomes – good ones and bad ones – are engraved in my mind. I wrote a beautiful book containing some of these stories, and now I am ready to pass on my expertise to you, to help you help.
