I graduated Cum Laude in Groningen where I also obtained my PhD. I did exertion in gynecology, surgery and training as a urologist in Amsterdam. After working as a urologist for a number of years, I also did sexology training in Oxford and in the Netherlands.
I am a visiting professor at the Russian Federation Institute of Urology (Moscow) and actively involved in the Dutch Association for Sexology (NVVS), The European Association for Urology (EAU) and President of the European Association for Medical Sexology (ESSM).
I am very active in education as a head trainer in sexology at RINO-Amsterdam and director of the ESSM School of Sexual Medicine. In addition, I perform scientific research and am an editor of a number of textbooks.
My work is my passion and my hobby. I enjoy working with people and helping them with their problems, complaints or concerns. I try to find the solutions that meet individual needs, because sexuality means different things to everyone. The task is to shape a form that you can enjoy in your own way.
