Who am I?

You cannot solve a (psychosocial) problem by using the same way of thinking that caused the issue in the first place. That’s why, as an external prevention adviser on psychosocial wellbeing, I elect to use a tailored strategy, in dialogue with you and taking the needs and culture of your organisation into account. I like an approach that is both effective and focused on results.

A healthy mind in a healthy body is where it all starts. That’s why I like to spend my spare time cycling, running, swimming and reading.

It is not the strongest of a species that survives, nor the most intelligent. It is the one best able to adapt to change." Charles Darwin


My background as a social adviser and basis criminologist, plus my 13 years of experience working in an HR job for an American multinational, have given me a broad insight into social dialogue and the different aspects of a sound HR policy. I am equally at home in employment law and social law and have worked as an in-house data privacy officer and internal psychosocial prevention adviser.     

As an external prevention adviser on psychosocial wellbeing at Mensura, I support companies in establishing and implementing a sustainable psychosocial policy.   

My preference goes to assignments in the field of primary prevention at a policy level. Being on-call for stress in the police sector is also a familiar field of work for me.
