Hi, I am a Clinical Psychologist from Belgium who has lived and worked in Kuala Lumpur since 2019. My aim is to help individuals who are struggling with emotional and psychological difficulties.
I have worked with adults, adolescents, children and families with a variety of cognitive, behavioural or emotional difficulties. I am trained in administrating comprehensive psychological assessments and providing treatment.
In addition to being a Clinical Psychologist, I am a lecturer at HELP University where I teach and supervise Master students in Clinical Psychology. I also have a strong interest in research and am currently involved in a variety of research projects in Malaysia, Japan and Belgium. My research has been published in peer-reviewed journals and I have presented at several international conferences.
I obtained a Bachelor of Psychology, Masters in Clinical and Health Psychology and a Doctorate of Psychology (PhD) from KU Leuven, Belgium. KU Leuven Belgium is one of world’s most innovative universities and recognised as a high quality educational and research institution.
I have also completed extensive training in assessment of children and adolescents and I gained extensive expertise in evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
I am a registered Clinical Psychologist in Belgium. Further, I am a member of the American Psychological Association (APA) and Malaysian Society of Clinical Psychology (MSCP).
Most of my experience is in PraxisP, KU Leuven’s outpatient Academic Centre, where I worked for more than 4 years. At PraxisP, I mostly worked with children, adolescents and families. I also have experience working with adults.
I combined working at PraxisP with my Doctoral Degree where I conducted research on children with ADHD and trained Master students in Psychology on Diagnostic Testing. During my Doctoral Training, I worked 6 months at The Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology in Japan.
How I work
It is my aim to let individuals understand their own struggles and equip them with skills that will empower them.
In an initial clinical assessment, I explore the difficulties and aim to understand the individual’s difficulties using a contextual approach. In doing so, I highly value evidence-based working and always tailor my approach based on the individual’s needs. Preferably, I work multidisciplinary taking into account the larger context.
