Clinical Psychologist

Jeanique graduated as a clinical psychologist from the VU University (Amsterdam) in 2007 and continued to complete a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Psychology (RINO) and a Post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy, which entitles her to full accreditation with the Dutch Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (VGCt) and the Dutch and European EMDR Associations.

More recently Jeanique focussed her professional development on Mindfulness Based Somatic Therapy approaches and Tension and Trauma releasing exercises (TRE).

Within her clinical practice, Jeanique tailors interventions to meet individual needs, drawing on a range of therapy modalities including (attachment informed) EMDR, Mindfulness, Skills training and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
