About Mellony

As far as Mellony is concerned, the client comes first. She is genuinely interested in her clients and shows it in the way she treats them. To her, clients are not just numbers; everyone is different and deserves tailor-made coaching and treatment.

In addition to her work, Mellony van Hemert also completed a master’s degree in mental health at Maastricht University, after which she advanced her knowledge in cognitive behavioural therapy by doing a postdoctoral training course in cognitive behavioural therapy at Crescendo Psy. Mellony is currently doing a postdoctoral training course at RINO in Utrecht to become a healthcare psychologist. She has been registered under the Dutch Individual Health Care Professions Act (in Dutch: Wet BIG) as a mental healthcare psychologist since July 2018, and as a psychotherapist since December 2016. Mellony continues to develop professionally and believes in the principle of lifelong learning.

Apart from her work as a therapist, Mellony also enjoys spending time with family and friends, and is passionate about sport. Mellony loves doing long-distance skating, fitness, walking (in Switzerland and Tenerife), bicycle racing and swimming. Mellony is also an avid fan of the Dutch national football team. She goes to matches whenever possible, or watches them on television with friends and family.

As well as her love of watching and participating in sport, Mellony enjoys other social activities such as eating out, going to the cinema, going to the beach or sailing with friends. This is a great example of who Mellony is: spontaneous, sporty, direct, sociable, and someone who loves good company and leads an active lifestyle.
