About me

30 years of working with clients therapeutically has taught me that change is possible and each of us can reach more fullfillment in life, which many of my clients have confirmed. The 1st consultation is free of charge. Engaging you actively in the counselling through mixed art medias, bodywork and mindfullness technics such as meditation, yoga, breathing exercises, relaxation and visualisation is more effective and can be agreed to.

I offer individual, process-driven relationship counselling, adolecent and children, group counselling/training and supervision for counselling professionals. I am available long term or short term, face to face, phone and skype counselling. I provide humanistic person-centred counselling, existentialistic Gestalt therapy, person-centred expressive arts therapy, mindfulness, yoga and embodied therapy. I can integrate CBT skills, where it is helpful for clients.

My experience includes distressed clients; who had diverse or multiple issues, inner child and self compassionate work, self-development, trauma and crises, bereavement and loss, depression, anger, anxiety and panic disorder, disability, cancer, eating, weight and energy problems, stress and redundancy, family issues, relationship problems, retirement, work place conflict.

I am multilingual and counsel in - English, German, Dutch. The first session is free in order to provide you and myself the opportunity to establish if what I can offer will support you.

Further information

Sometimes we have to face life changes we cannot understand, adjust to, cope with or which frighten us. At these times it can be a great relief to talk to someone who knows how to support you professionally, knows how to keep you safe and helps you through listening and not-judging.
I believe we are carrying the resources within us to allow change to happen. Life is a journey where change is inevitable- if we resist change through our set attitudes or belief system and feelings it creates more pain and suffering, but with a helping hand we can change and learn to cope with new circumstances, ideas and beliefs.

I learned to trust this process of change as I have done this journey many times in my life and I have been alongside many clients supporting them to go through a transition to help find their own solutions through the use of therapeutic interventions.

My special interest is helping clients to come in contact with themself through working creatively with clients. I developed a deep understanding of cultural differences and ethical diversity having lived many years in different countries. I offer a non-judgemental, empathic and safe space for everyone who needs a helping hand to embrace life or start anew and struggles with it.
