Notes: Trained in The Netherlands, England and Japan in client-centered, cognitive behavioural, directive family therapy and psychoanalytic approaches.
As a clinical psychologist for more than 30 years, I have experience in psychotherapy for anxiety, depression, stress, grief, identity issues, marital and cross-cultural problems.
For 5 years I worked at the Netherlands Cancer Institute for a Quality-of-Life research program in projects measuring subjective feelings of well-being in cancer patients. After my arrival in Japan (1984) I started to work mainly with groups dealing with cancer, death, grief, marriage problems and cross-cultural issues.
My clinical experiences and continuing education led me to tailoring psychotherapy to suit the needs of my clients.
