Mental Performance Consultant
My goal as a mental performance consultant is to help my clients better understand themselves and how they can train their minds.
Growing up in the Netherlands, I became interested in the psychology of
sport and exercise through my own observations as an advanced youth soccer player and later as a competitive volleyball athlete and coach. After completing my undergraduate degree in Human Movement Science at the VU University Amsterdam, I moved to Greece to pursue the European Master in Sport and Exercise Psychology at the University of Thessaly. I have experience working with a variety of athletes including hockey, soccer and volleyball players, track & field athletes, dancers and business people. When I am not occupied with sport-related activities, I enjoy playing the saxophone, cooking and board games. I am enthusiastic and driven to work with all types of clients, ranging from high-level athletes to beginning exercisers and people trying to maximise their performance at their job.
I am trained to provide a wide variety of services such as mental skills training, stress and coping techniques, exercise motivation and relaxation, as well as injury rehabilitation, coaching and team counselling. My philosophy revolves around accepting people the way they are, but always working hard in order to keep growing. In my practice, I focus on fully understanding the client in order to make sure I can offer a tailored program that fits his or her needs in the best way.
