Dr Helena Harder completed a MSc in Psychology (specialisation Neuropsychology) at Utrecht University. She went onto to work as a Psychologist in the Netherlands for many years combining clinical practice and academic research. She was awarded a PhD from the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at the Erasmus University Rotterdam in 2007 after a 4-year study funded by the Dutch Cancer Society.
