On Tuesday I work as POH-GGZ (nurse practitioner GGZ practice assistant) and offer support and guidance to patients with psychological, psychosocial and psychosomatic complaints. The support is short-term, solution-oriented and easily accessible. Patients who are referred to basic mental healthcare or specialist mental healthcare can also contact me for bridging.
My approach is aimed at increasing self-insight, autonomy, and emotional resilience.
The purpose of this is to work towards healthy and well-functioning behavior patterns. During the guidance and support, I work with methods from schema therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-oriented therapy, ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and mindfulness.
I have almost 15 years of experience in the field of psychosocial support. During and after my SPH (Social Pedagogical Assistance) study, I worked at various institutions in Amsterdam with clients with very different complaints and backgrounds. In 2019 I took the step to be retrained as a practice nurse for GGZ general practitioner care. In addition, I also work at another general practice in Amsterdam.
