Ms Marianne Peters
In January 2021, Marianne joined the chat team of ICRH as a scientific researcher and chat employee, working on both the French and Flemish chat. On the chat she offers support to victims of sexual violence and their support system. Marianne graduated as a clinical psychologist from Ghent University in 2016. In 2019, she additionally followed a basic training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Previously, she worked in a Red Cross reception centre for applicants for international protection, where she focused on the psychosocial care of the residents. She developed a special interest in the care of people who were victims of gender-based violence and after a few years she looked for a new job to specialise in that area.
