Jasmijn is a psychologist at OpenUp. She works empathetically, supportively and where possible with a touch of humour. She helps you to get more insight into your thoughts, feelings and behaviour. In your conversations with Jasmijn, you will explore together what is holding you back and how you can deal with this.
She stimulates you to practice with this in daily life. In addition, during the sessions attention is paid to what gives you energy and satisfaction. Through this goal- and strength-oriented approach you will get more insight in who you are, what you want and what you can do.
To take care of her mental health herself, she tries to listen to her needs regularly and to balance between being busy/working hard and relaxing. She regularly checks in with herself by taking a short (breathing) break. She asks herself a few questions: How am I doing? And what do I need at this moment? This helps to pause and make a more conscious choice.
Jasmijn received her Master’s degree in Social Psychology from the University of Groningen and her Master’s degree in Policy, Communication and Organization from the VU University Amsterdam. She has also completed the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) course. Jasmijn speaks both Dutch and English.
