Counseling

Tele conversations

Wed- Fri

9am- 8pm

Video counseling facilitates the same face-to-face conversations you would receive in a private office or hospital setting, but without the hassle of a sometimes inconvenient or impossible commute, and can be done privately and safely from any place that is most comfortable to you. It is moreover easy to instantly send you any resources via links.

Region Brussels only

Despite my belief in technological progress, and the benefits and opportunities it brings, I do not underestimate the power of real-life contact and conversation. To determine in a beginning stage, for instance, if we could work well together, or because you would like to involve other family members or a partner into one of the sessions at some point. I'm happy to make the trip.

The classic. You're welcome to join me in my private practice in Meise, in the green outskirts of Brussels. Public transport and a bike highway are nearby.  You can go for the longer 90 min sessions, or the traditional 60 min sessions, to fit your schedule and other commitments.

Getting started

You can join me as an individual, family or couple.

My expertise involves listening, guiding you through the scientific information, and having you speak the unspoken, via a hands-on and positive approach:

1. Counseling for individuals or couples regarding sexual wellbeing and relationship concerns, such as helping you recover passion and desire in long-term relationships; understand pain, sexual excitement, difficulties with arousal or orgasm and ejaculation; resolve disconnection and distance; break unhealthy communication patterns and establish sustainable new ones; repair trust after breeches; explore concerns related to gender development and sexual orientation; figure out if non-traditional relationships are right for you and other relational challenges linked to intimacy and fertility; learn skills to communicate and explore sexuality with authenticity, ...

2. Counseling for young people and adults with differences of sex development/intersex, such as young women with XY chromosomes (e.g. AIS, Swyer or gonadal dysgenesis), or 1 X chromosome (e.g. Turner), or people with an extra X chromosome (e.g. Klinefelter),  or in some body cells XY and in other body cells XX, as well as women born without a uterus (e.g. MRKH) or young men with a small penis and/or hypospadias, and men and women with adrenal hyperplasia (CAH). Counseling may help you (further) understand how your body developed and other information (including investigations and treatments), focusing on health and wellbeing; support you to find words that help with sharing and how you would like other people to understand it (friends, family, lovers); provide you with resources and information about support group organizations; and support you with challenges related to body confidence, sexuality, fertility and being/becoming a parent, ... 


3. Counseling for parents who have a child with differences of sex development/intersex, such as a girl with XY chromosomes (e.g. AIS, Swyer or gonadal dysgenesis), or 1 X chromosome (e.g. Turner), or children with an extra X chromosome (e.g. Klinefelter),  or in some body cells XY and in other body cells XX, as well as girls born without a uterus (e.g. MRKH) or boys with a small penis and/or hypospadias, and children with adrenal hyperplasia (CAH). Counseling may help you (further) understand the development of your baby/child; help you find words that work for you in talking about it with friends and family and how you would like other people to understand it; help you think ahead of talking with your growing child; help you consider interventions that your medical team is discussing with you; provide you with resources and information about support group organizations, ...

Send me an email with your questions/ concerns and we'll review your info & support needs and preferences together.

Choose that counseling format you're most comfortable with.


For some people short-term counseling works very well. Others benefit from longer-term guidance. It's always hard to determine the best frequency of appointments in advance, so we'll decide that together as we go along.
