Professional Background & Expertise
Learning is a continuous, life-long process. The more I know about counselling and psychotherapy, the more my appreciation and fascination grows, which makes me want to learn more. In addition to the professional training courses mentioned below, I gain experience and inspiration from supervision, from peer support offered by colleagues, but also from clients. With each client with I learn how to further fine-tune my skills and become more effective.
