I AM A MOVER.
I MOVE PEOPLE FORWARD and PEOPLE MOVE ME INWARDS and UP.
MOVEMENT and EXPRESSIONS,
BODIES  and MINDS ARE MY WORK. MY PASSION.

 

Working as  a dance movement therapist in the Arts Therapies department in an outpatient mental heath center, i-psy Intercultural Psychiatry in Amsterdam.

We accompany clients suffering from depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, personality disorders, chronic pain, conversion, acculturation and migration related problems.

Our clients come from various countries and cultures: Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Canada, Portugal, Brazil, Peru, Turkey, Marocco, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, among others. The intercultural aspect is essential in the adaptation of the treatments.

I support the work of psychologists, psychotherapists, system therapists, schematherapists, psychiatrists and art therapists, from a non verbal and body oriented perspective. The treatments are broad and various and my main focus is:

  • Trauma treatment
  • Pain treatment
  • Assertivity training
  • Stress release and relaxation
  • Agression and Emotion Regulation
  • Activation in depression

 

Techniques used in the sessions:
  • Dance movement therapy methods

  • Visualization and imagery
  • Body awareness and body-scan
  • Grounding and stabilization techniques
  • Progressive relaxation and stress-reduction
  • Cross modal techniques (combining arts/video and movement)
