Work

I follow the principle that health is a physical, mental and social state in which you feel healthy. It’s a part of anything you do. So, also in your studies, or at work. Health psychology named it the quality of life.

Would you like to know how alcoholism expresses itself? Or dementia? Or how brain processes work when there is brain damage? I provide information on about the brain and mental issues. Consult with me on these topics for your research (reports), scenarios and policy plans. I can advise you. My background is in neuropsychology, which revolves around these subjects. And my work experience in various functions has given me a deeper insight.

From a psychological point of view, I blog about normal, everyday topics. My blog also includes reviews of films and books with a psychological theme. With my blog I share the newest developments in psychology with a wider audience. I find psychology fascinating, full of information that benefits people in daily life.

Methods

I work with Loketgezondleven.nl-approved lifestyle interventions and programs. As well as interventions that are otherwise scientifically backed or approved by psychologists. Like, runningtherapy, which is a mind-body intervention.

I am certified in these interventions. And was trained by, among others, the Brickhouse Academy to use the SMARTsize Me Method.

My work and field also are used in other sectors. Because “human knowledge is important to everyone who works with people”.
