Lecturer in psychology since 2012, joined Focus Academy in 2022.
As a graduated neuropsychologist, I became a psychology lecturer at the University of Amsterdam. Here, I discovered how much I enjoy sharing knowledge and coaching and guiding people through the challenges in their learning process. I enjoy it even more when knowledge about how the brain works can be applied to practical challenges. How do you study best? How do you make sure you sleep well? How do you teach yourself new behaviour? And: how to have focus when I want it?
That is also what makes the Focus Management training so much fun. Participants go home with concrete tips and skills based on scientific knowledge. I myself try to alternate regularly between focus and open attention, and that expresses itself outside my work in playing guitar, meditating and long trail runs in the mountains.linkedin.com/in/marcoleijtens
