As psychosocial artistic therapist, I offer individual sessions based on ACT and working with the artistic process. Making something visual and working with images and other artistic means make it possible to get more insight and understanding about what is going on. I work with visual language, the steps of the artistic process which follow the steps of human development, and ACT – Acceptance & Commitment Therapy. ACT is based on cognitive behavioural therapy and works towards psychological flexibility. After studying psychology (bachelor) and a master & PhD in contemporary philosophy with specialisation in practical ethics (how do we lead ‘the good life’ in contemporary society?), I obtained a degree in art & psycho-social therapy at Vrije Academie ‘t Pad.
Therapy is a highly individual process, and your own concerns are the focus of the sessions. ACT means we work with what is present, to aim to find a way of life that ‘works’. I offer therapy in both English and Dutch.
During the intake, you will be able to experience whether this combination of art therapy and ACT resonates with you, and we can together discuss the therapeutic trajectory.
Sessions take place in Nuenen (10 minute drive from Eindhoven, the Netherlands).
