Welcome to the personal website of dr. K.H. (Ina) ter Avest

I am a psychologist/pedagogue and researcher in the field of life orientation.


This site contains publications about my research, in books and in (peer reviewed) journals.

Are you worried, deeply unhappy? I like to be at your service. In my private practice ‘Z-in-gesprek’/’In Conversation’ I coach individuals and groups in their exploration of existential questions, identity issues or facing the threat of a burn-out.

What is my role in your explorative process?
I challenge you by way of the Self Confrontation Method enriched with techniques of Psychodrama. Provocative ancient narratives and personal stories of role models enable a change of perspective.

I am the guest editor of ‘Education and Religion in a Secular Age’, Special Issue of Education Sciences.
