I was born an athlete and a psychologist.  After lots of running around (on a track), I studied journalism and travelled the world, before finding a home in Amsterdam. It was the long and enjoyable way around to becoming a qualified social psychologist (with special interest area of emotions) and obtaining a Ph.D (focussing on vulnerable older people living at home). From there, I moved into the field of geriatrics and psychiatry working with people with dementia and their carers specializing in person-centered interventions.

 

For a number of years, I conducted relevant scientific research, while at the same time improving the day to day life of people living with dementia. Here at Monash University (Australia), I was also schooled to be a Mindfulness trainer by buddhist GP Dr. Craig Hassed. And I found the perfect teacher in the equally wise Dr. Cameron Camp to mentor me to become an Original Montessori for Dementia practitioner. In 2021, I upgraded my mindfulness skills at Achology and also became a certified Namaste Care practitioner.

 

Soulful Brain was born in May 2020. Through research, stories, meditations, mentoring, workshops, support groups and consultancy, I hope to make the world a slightly better place. Your world. My world. The world.
