Angelique started her work in mental health care in 1981, with a VWO diploma and a blue Monday in pedagogy. She then worked in the Psychodynamic Behavioral Therapy department of the Rosenburg psychiatric center in The Hague, both at the clinic and at part-time treatment. She was trained by Goei Yoe Djiang. Among other things, he was introduced to (cognitive) behavioral therapy. During her work she followed the HBO SPH course, where she graduated in 1996.
Due to changes within the organization, her work changed from clinical work to outpatient work. In recent years, she worked at PsyQ in the anxiety disorders department within a multidisciplinary team. In addition to conducting conversations, she gave grouptherapy there, including G-training, social skills training, self-image module, schema therapy and complaint-oriented groups.
