Since 1987, I work with people who have experienced consequences of war and violence, usually in a combination of advice, policy and research.
Today, I work as an independent consultant. Previously, I worked at the Veterans Institute and the Dutch Institutes for Services to Victims of War (ICODO, today Cogis)
Recent assignments: staff care for the International Medical Corps in Nepal, training and counseling for national staff working for the International Rehabilitation Centre for victims of Torture (IRCT) in Burundi, Rwanda and DR Congo. In Russia, I assisted the crew of the Arctic Sunrise, the ship of Greenpeace International that was seized in the Northern Ice Sea.
