Stuff About Me:

I am currently a PhD candidate in clinical psychology at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. I obtained my MSc Clinical and Health Psychology from Utrecht University in the Netherlands in 2010. My first encounter with South Africa was during my Master research project, which took place in Sizanani Children’s Home in Bronkhorstspruit. The project was about developing and evaluating a play intervention for severely disabled children. After finishing my Master degree in 2010, I returned to South Africa to work with Dr. Elzette Fritz as a researcher for a project with the University of Johannesburg. This project was an evaluation of a creative expressive arts therapy training with social workers who worked in hospices. I fell in love with the country, creative therapy and I also met my fiancé, which made me decide to return to South Africa again eight months later to commence my PhD project which I am currently enrolled in. Since I started my project two years ago, I have done volunteer work for the Teddy Bear Clinic, doing intakes and group therapy. I have also been working now for two years as research consultant for Studietrust, an NGO that provides study bursaries to disadvantages students.

I am very passionate about doing research and I highly value the practical application of it. My strengths are a combination of analytical thinking, being critical, punctual, hardworking, creative, but also caring and emphatic.
