Alexandra grieved 20 people. Common grief therapy at tought in her academic training seemed alien from how she experienced grief. She developed a radical approach in what turned out to be masculine or instrumental grief, and became one of the very few - if not only - female experts on that subject.
Working with men in uniformed and high risk professions in her former career let up to setting up her expert practice. Today she guides people through grief by offering them customised VIP days on grief as a healing and transformational journey.
Alexandra sees public speaking as a tool to make the ripples in the pond and change grief one men at the time.
She is interested in speaking live in the vicinity of the Netherlands and online globally. Summits and meetings about men's mental health, HRM and psychological care in uniformed services might be suited, but her approach and wisdom can be useful in many settings where “do-ers become grievers”.
Besides grief counselor Alexandra is mother to a teenage son, likes the beach (by storm, preferably), listen to classical music and cook.
