Graduated as a clinical psychologist at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Hannan started as a crisis counselor at the CAW (Centrum Algemeen Welzijnswerk). From here on her interest in working systemically with individuals and families grew and led her to obtain a postgraduate degree in relational, family and systemic psychotherapy. She is also interested in trauma and works as an EMDR practitioner (in training).
Since 2018, Hannan has been actively promoting the repatriation of stranded children and their mothers in the camps in Northeast Syria. As part of her PhD research, she is researching the reintegration female returnees and their children under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Iman Lechkar and Prof. Dr. Gerrit Loots.
