People fascinate me. I am always curious about why people do what they do. Why do I what I do? What are the forces that steer our behaviour? When I still lived in Chengdu (China), these questions keep me busy all the time.
In the fall of 2003 when I was 25 years old, I came to the Netherlands to study psychology in the Dutch language at the university of Amsterdam (UvA). To prepare myself, I followed an intensive Dutch language course at UvA. By receiving the diploma, I became elligible for the study psychology in Dutch. I compleded the bachelor degree of psychology and the master degree of clinical psychology. Afterwards, I worked as a psychologist at a transcultural institution, where I counseled and treated people of various backgrounds.
It fascinates me how on one hand, people differ from each other in terms of behaviour, culture and thought-patterns and on the other hand how their fundamental structures of their personality are alike. My goal as a therapist is to help people to overcome obstacles in their lives and find their strenghts (back). By experience, I learned that an non-judgmental, open and involved therapeutic attitude is key to a succesful treatment.
I find it important to keep developing myself as a therapist. At the moment I am following a post-master training to become a cognitive behavioural therapist. It is my wish to use my knowledge and professional and personal experience to help you find your way in life.
I was interviewed by mrs M. den Outer, journalist at the Geldraak.nl website. The interview is in Dutch. You can find it here.
