basIn February 2020 I started as a trainee at Praktijk Hoek Melkweg as part of my Master Clinical Psychology at the University of Groningen (RUG). Since this was such a great experience I kept working here as a psychologist after my traineeship had ended. I enjoy being at the practice because of the enriching conversations with my colleagues and clients, the interesting books from our library and our cats Bas & Luca.

Ralph EversI studied clinical psychology at the University of Groningen and then specialized in Gestalt therapy.

Out of the many psychological theories and forms of psychotherapy, I find the Gestalt approach the most inspiring due to its focus on the human being and his condition.
