After studying psychology, Tanja worked at the University of Groningen for a long time as a (student) psychologist. At the time, she mainly studied and trained in a specific form of cognitive behavioural therapy; rational emotional therapy (RE(B)T). A method in which she now gives training to other professionals and which she still likes to use in her work as a GZ-psychologist. Later, she followed the training to become a GZ-psychologist and trained herself in other forms of cognitive behavioural therapies and, for example, in EMDR.
Since 2014, Tanja has enjoyed working at the neuroCare Group Groningen (formerly Brain Dynamics). She mainly sees clients individually and is a co-therapist in our group therapy. From the beginning of 2018 Tanja will also apply rTMS in combination with psychotherapy.
