"Painful thoughts or expectations are usually not the problem. Treating them as facts is." – Sille Moens


My background

In 2001, I graduated as a clinical psychologist from VUB. My experience spans across various domains. I worked with intellectually gifted children and adults for 10 years and underwent specific training to provide assistance in diverse areas. In my previous professional life, I held several other roles: scientific collaborator at the university, recruitment manager (human resources), director of a community health center in Belgium, and various centers in Congo. Additionally, I completed the basic training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Even if you're not entirely sure what's going on, you can still come to me. Then, we'll search together.

What you can come to me for

  • Anxiety, post-traumatic stress, obsessive-compulsive behavior
  • Guidance for intellectually gifted children and adults
  • Treatment for perfectionism, low self-esteem, sleep problems, burnout
  • Substance abuse, suicidal thoughts, borderline personality disorder
  • Support for dual diagnosis of intellectual giftedness and/or autism

What characterizes me

  • A caring and empathetic personality
  • A warm yet direct style
  • Providing practical tips and techniques for home

My approach

I believe in the importance of examining and challenging thoughts, not treating them as facts but as thoughts. This creates space for less charged emotions and a healthier emotional balance. I am described as someone with a caring and empathetic personality, but I also genuinely share my thoughts and assumptions. You can expect a warm and direct style from me, along with various tips and techniques to try at home.

My leisure activities

Outside of my professional life, I am active and versatile. I enjoy sports such as jogging, swimming, and hiking, love playing board games, chess, and am a fan of movies, traveling, dancing, and music. My creative side comes out in composing music and creating aftermovies for festivals.
