Next to working as a psychologist, Marjolein holds a university appointment and is conducting research into the emotional well-being of women and their partners experiencing early pregnancy loss. She also leads a research study into how children experience and form a relationship with their body after invasive cancer treatment.
With international qualifications as a Psychologist and having practiced overseas, Marjolein is currently a Provisional Psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). All Psychologists need to be registered with this agency in Australia in order to practice. Marjolein is in the process of acquiring a Medicare provider number and full registration, which requires a certain amount of practice hours in Australia. This means that she is registered with AHPRA and allowed to practice in Australia, but for now her clients will not be able to claim the Medicare rebate. To compensate for this, Matrix has reduced Marjolein’s fee. If you have any questions or would like to discuss this further then please contact our admin team on 03 7015 2194.
