My name is Barry Assen and I am passionate about sports and the psychology of human performance. My background is in human movement sciences (M.Sc., RUG), work and organizational psychology (M.Sc., OU), and sports psychology (post-master, VU).
As an accredited SPORTS PSYCHOLOGIST VSPN®, I base my working method on scientific knowledge. In my work as a sports psychologist I combine this knowledge with a practical and person-oriented approach.
In addition to my work as a psychologist, I also teach classes within the physiotherapy program at the Hanze University of Applied Sciences in Groningen. People usually describe me as enthusiastic, level-headed and goal-oriented. In my spare time I play (indoor) football, golf, cycling and running.
