As an open network organization, Culture Class is based on consultation and collaboration with experts from diverse cultural and professional backgrounds across nations. Counseling sessions are also based on this approach: ‘I am because we are’. Issues we deal with: depression, panic, social anxiety, phobias, stress, trauma recovery, bereavement, relationship and family issues, lack of self esteem or loneliness, expatriate and repatriate adjustment, life stage transition (entering parenthood, adulthood, career shift), parenting, personality, personal skills (negotiation, leadership, presentation skills). Clinical approaches include (and usually integrate) mindfulness, compassion focused therapy, creative therapies, interpersonal, transcultural, systems, and cognitive behaviour therapy. Even parts of training programmes may be included to provide you with the effective and person tailored solutions you need.* N.I.P. and N.V.R.G. approved training completed. * Skype/phone sessions available.
Cross-Cultural Experience: Extensive ethnographic field research in the United States, the Caribbean, India, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and Spain has contributed much to an in depth understanding of how cultural conditions, shifts in culture, and transitioning between cultures affect people in their everyday life. Languages spoken on a daily basis are Dutch, German, and English. Spanish, French, Portuguese and Italian, I speak less frequently. I am most familiar with the cultures of Brazil, China, Morocco, Surinam, Switzerland, Thailand, and Turkey and the ones already mentioned.
