Hi, I am Tifenn! I am a child psychologist from the Netherlands. I have a master’s degree in Healthcare Psychology from the University of Amsterdam and a post-master certificate in Play Therapy.
Everyone gets to face challenges in life. Sometimes you can have difficulty coping and feel scared, angry or sad. Focusing on your strengths in a safe space with a therapist and using the time to start feeling better again can be really helpful.Creating this safe space with children, parents/guardians, and other key adults in a child’s life is essential in my work as a psychologist. I do this by being emotionally sensitive and by working client-centered. Solution-focused therapy, play therapy, humor and empowerment also play an important role in my therapy sessions.
Generalizing the effect from the therapy room to daily life can be difficult. Therefore, I believe it is essential to work systematically and to involve, e.g., parents, other family members or teachers to support the child’s therapy process.I have several years of experience working with cross-cultural children and their parents with often complex psychological issues, and I am excited to work with children from all around the world.
I specialize in anxiety, anger management, adjustment issues, self-esteem, play therapy, parent coaching, systemic coaching.
I speak English and Dutch.
