IT’S ALL ABOUT SCUBA DIVING

DIVES

After my qualification for Open Water Diver in 2014 I stopped diving for a while. In 2017 I started again with diving and I was very motivated to bring myself to a higher level! In the meantime, I have completed 150+ dives and we will continue!

LOCATIONS

I’ve dived in different countries and in different locations. At the moment I’ve dived exactly in 32 different locations in 5 different country’s! My dream is to dive in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and the Red Sea in Egypt!

COMMUNITY

To connect the divers in the Netherlands, I have set up a community using the Discord platform. Would you like to join this Dutch-speaking community, click here to register and help grow the community!

My personal goal and project!

LIMITED BUT NOT LOST YET…

My personal goal

I’ve been psychologically damaged by my work at the Dutch National Police. I’ve been diagnosed with PTSD. After the diagnosis, many treatments and eventually medical discharge, I experienced depression and felt like I was lost.

After research it turned out that diving was a good activity to relax and to enjoy life again. Now I have a new life purpose. I am partly trained by Serenad Diving Center and Kuşadası Diving Center as SSI Diving Professional. After achieving this goal I want to share my knowledge (with All Stars Diving) to help fellow sufferers and regain their joy in life on a voluntary basis!

All Stars Diving

A number of friends, former police officers from the Netherlands, diagnosed with the occupational disease PTSD, met regularly to dive. Over time, they discovered that diving was a relaxing activity. She noted that they had more stability and enjoyment in life.

On the basis of their own findings, they conducted research into the benefits of diving in combination with PTSD on a “therapeutic” basis. They soon came out on various American websites where mainly former soldiers had shared their findings about their positive experiences with diving and the diagnosis of PTSD.

SSI qualifications!
