Hi, my name is Carmen, welcome to Transpiral!
I have worked for more than 20 years in disability, mental health, refugee services, child protection and youth services. It is a privilege to work with people, everyone brings their own unique story and experiences. My passion is to contribute to the wellbeing of people as a facilitator, counsellor, coach or practitioner.
Being a facilitator of the Mental Health First Aid course is always a rewarding experience, every time I learn just as much as the participants. Everyone is touched by mental health and illness either directly or indirectly and therefor often people are very connected to the topics covered.
When I’m not facilitating the Mental Health First Aid course, I work for a disability organisation as a consultant, study, spend time with my kids and partner, go to the gym, catch up with friends or walk on the beach with my dogs. I also love my holidays, in Australia (which is our home since 2005), back to the Netherlands or anyplace where we can enjoy nature, people or culture.
