Clinical Specialties: My clinical specialty is recognizing the resources, needs and conditions of a specific person with a particular issue in a specific situation. I offer a therapeutic remedy that is not confined to borders between cultures or therapeutic schools – firstly, because people don’t fit in boxes, and secondly, because critical issues and opportunities usually happen in between the boxes – in transitions, margins and in forgotten corners of the mind. The best way to predict the future is to create it, someone once said, and 14 years of clinical experience have shown me many different ways to do just that, featuring:
- Diverse healthcare settings: incl. in- and out-patient clinics and outreaching care;
- Diverse clients: kids, adolescents, adults, elderly and families with or without a migration background; fugitives and expats;
- Diverse therapeutic approaches: cognitive behavioural therapy, non-verbal and creative therapies, interpersonal and psychodynamic therapy, transcultural systems approach, in group and individual sessions;
- Diverse disorders and other issues: anxiety, depression, intercultural adjustment, relationship problems, personality disorders and many more;
- Training and supervision: supervision to junior health care workers and providing training in transcultural communication and healthcare.
The main focus of my company Culture Class (.org) is to advance the quality of transcultural care and communication by providing and innovating intercultural training for healthcare and other professionals. My exchanges with clients of all walks of life have been priceless and motivate me to provide quality care for all budgets. — NEW CLIENTS ARE WELCOME —
Cross-Cultural Experience: I have lived in the Caribbean, the USA, the Netherlands, Spain and in the UK; speak 4 – 7 languages (four fluently); have done a good bit of solitary traveling; and had the privilege to be personally trained by internationally renowned experts in intercultural education and cultural psychiatry. I am doing a Ph.D. in cultural psychiatry at University College London and working on a project that sets out to develop and deliver an advanced intercultural training module based on an interdisciplinary ethnography of expatriate acculturation experiences. When you are interested to get involved in the project, in receiving or providing transcultural therapy or acculturation training, then visit the website for more information and let’s work it out!
