About Tina

Tina is a passionate and experienced Paediatric Occupational Therapist who lives in the Netherlands with her husband and two young children. With over 15 years of experience in the field of neurological and motor development and disorders in babies and young children, Tina has always loved helping people and discovered her passion for working with babies during her occupational therapy studies.

After graduating in 2007, Tina worked in a school for children with special needs before joining the Paediatric Rehabilitation Department at the University Rehabilitation Institute in Ljubljana, Slovenia. She completed her specialisation in neurodevelopmental treatment in 2009 (Paediatric Bobath) and in 2023 (Baby Bobath). She has worked mainly with babies with neurological disorders and has given practical advice to their parents.

Over the years, Tina has noticed that many parents in the Netherlands have questions about their baby’s development and handling, as there is a general lack of such information and services. That’s why in 2023, she decided to focus her career on helping parents stimulate the healthy development of their babies. Tina started the BABY ON TRACK to make life easier for new parents by providing guidance, practical tips and advice. Tina feels fulfilled when she sees parents build a calm and confident connection with their baby through a variety of activities.

At the moment Tina offers individual home visits, but in the future she plans to open a center for individual training as well as group workshops. She currently works with parents in The Hague, Rotterdam, Delft, Leiden and Zoetermeer. She is passionate about helping as many parents as possible, so if you live elsewhere in the Netherlands, get in touch with Tina via the contact form below.

Tina also worked part-time as a paediatric occupational therapist in two developmental clinics for babies, providing therapy and training parents on how to properly handle and stimulate their babies. In 2015 she moved to the Netherlands and started working at the Basalt Rehabilitation Centre in Delft. There, she completed a Sensory Integration specialisation for children in 2019.

Tina’s passion for working with babies became even stronger after she became a mother to her son in 2019 and her daughter in 2021. As a qualified paediatric occupational therapist with a specialisation in neurodevelopmental treatment (Paediatric Bobath – 2009 and Baby Bobath – 2023) and Sensory Integration for children, she has extensive experience working with babies with neurological or genetic abnormalities, asymmetry, prematurity, muscle tone disorders or sensory disorders.

Happy Customers

"You don’t know what you don’t know, is the attitude we had before choosing to work with Tina. The most surprising insight for me was the effect of sub-optimal baby development on motor skills and learning later in school or even how their body will age as they grow old. It gives me a piece of mind to know that I’m setting them up for life in the best possible way, based on the latest research, in a fun way. Thank you Tina!"

"As a first time mom the internet can sometimes be a bit like a jungle when it comes to children’s toys and in general devices for kids. I was lucky to get connected to Tina, who came home to our house several times during our son’s first year and showed us not only age appropriate toys (and the valuable lesson that less is more), and for children’s appliances she helped us how to choose the right car seat for our son at his age and size and helped us how to adjust our high chair properly. What I found really helpful was how she taught us exercises for our son to support his physical development; more specifically how to roll, how to crawl and how to sit and many other things. This meant that our son’s body was balanced and strong on each side which might explain why he was so quick at crawling (6 months) and walking (10 months). Can heartily recommend Tina as she has lots of knowledge about kids development. She is sweet and patient and can easily help translate theory into practice."

"Tina is amazing therapist to work with. She is empathetic, caring and always ready to help. She actively listens and thinks along to address all the queries. I would highly recommend to get her guidance for children’s motor skill development."
