Drs. Peter Muijres, MA., MSc., PhD. cand.

The passion for what connects people and makes them unique has always fascinated and motivated me. After completing Master degrees in clinical psychology and medical anthropology, I have continued to develop as a therapist, researcher and trainer in culture and communication.

I have clinically worked with expats, parents, refugees and families, supporting them with anxiety, depression, stress, sleep problems, relationship conflicts or adjustment difficulties. In my work with a wide variety of people and their problems, I always try to tailor the best of different therapeutic approaches to the specific possibilities and needs of each individual.

After qualifying as a trainer in transcultural and systemic therapy in Amsterdam, I specialised in cultural psychiatry at University College London, focusing on intercultural training and expat adaptation.

Since 2016, I have been exploring the applications and benefits of Dignity Therapy in Switzerland in collaboration with USZ and City Hospital Waid. Until the end of 2018, I have been supporting people in the last stage of cancer; and between 2019 and 2022 people with early stage dementia, and their family. I coordinated Dignity Therapy study projects, train therapists, provide Dignity Therapies and offer Dignity Therapy courses in Switzerland.
