Fleur van der Maaten

Self-confidence Stress and anxiety Lifestyle

Fleur is a psychologist at OpenUp. In her conversations she opts for a calm, honest and clear approach. She offers a listening ear without judgment and knows when and how to question assumptions.

Together with Fleur you will investigate what your obstacles are, and explore how to turn them round and use them in your favour. Often small adjustments can have big results. Fleur believes every person has strength and resilience in them, even if one needs to dig a little to find it.

Opening up comes more naturally for some than for others. Fleur helps you in sorting out your thoughts or expressing your emotions.

She herself likes to start her day with a moment of rest and reflection. Even if it is just for one minute. By briefly asking yourself how you are doing, and what you need that day you can make a big difference.

Fleur obtained her master’s degree in Clinical Psychology and Master’s in Training & Development at the University of Amsterdam. She has been working as an independent (media) psychologist, trainer and coach for 10 years and has broad experience in conducting various conversations.

"The human need to talk is centuries old. I am convinced that talking helps and I am happy to be able to meet this need at OpenUp."
