Arnie | Systemic grief therapist

Grief and Trauma Therapy Eindhoven

Welcome to my practice for meaning and specialist guidance for grief and/or trauma due to loss or change.


My name is Arnie (1969) and I am a psychosocial therapist and systemic grief therapist. Loss runs like a common thread through my life. In addition to losing loved ones through death, I have had a number of miscarriages and am unwantedly childless. I have also had to deal with loss of work, loss of relationships (including divorce) and regular (serious) illness. This sparked my passion for working with people who have (had) to deal with (traumatic) loss.


I choose a loving, personal approach. The therapy is always directed inward, as I am convinced that everyone already has the answers within them and the strength to overcome life's challenges. By being present in a loving and non-judgmental way and focusing on the person instead of the problems or shortcomings, I create a safe space. This allows you to take the necessary steps within and find, feel, trust and be yourself again.


In addition to this basic attitude (presence approach), I use various methods, such as Systemic Working, Puppet Language and Voice Dialogue.

(Family) constellations is a form of systemic work to gain insight into your place in the system and your relationship with the others in that system. The system can be your family, organization, association, group of friends, etc. I do this with floor anchors (placemats) and with the Puppet language (Playmobil).

The Puppet Language is a methodology that, using Playmobil dolls and other materials, provides insight and overview into people in relation to themselves and others, in the here and now and in their history. It makes the inner world visual, allowing you to safely visualize (traumatic) experiences without the risk of re-traumatization.

Voice Dialogue is a powerful method in which we identify your selves or sub-personalities. You get to know and develop the different sides of yourself better in a careful, loving and in-depth way.


You can count on sincere involvement and an objective and goal-oriented approach, but also fun.


I have a practice in Eindhoven that is easily accessible, both by public transport and by car. And there is plenty of parking (paid parking).

In exceptional cases I can also make a home visit.

Online guidance is also possible.


In most cases, reimbursement is (partially) possible through the alternative care package of the supplementary health insurance.


If you would like to know more or make an appointment, please contact me.


Loving regards,

I offer therapy in


My practice offers meaning and specialist guidance for grief or trauma due to loss or change.

I have specialized in loss/trauma work with Puppet Language, in Systemic work with floor anchors and Puppet Language, and in Voice Dialogue.


Depending on the request for help, an average of 10 sessions are needed.

Most common issues I support people with:

Grief: grieving is processing a major loss, such as the loss of a loved one through divorce or death, but also due to an illness such as dementia. The loss of a parent, a child or a miscarriage. The loss of a pet. The loss of a job or failure to study. The loss of health or a body part. The loss of dreams for the future, such as unwanted childlessness. Etc.

In therapy you will learn to deal with the changes in your life after loss.


Trauma: Trauma is what the nervous system has not been able to process; a psychological injury that takes root in our nervous system, mind and body and that remains within us for a long time after the event and can be triggered at any time. So trauma is not what happens to you but what happens within you as a result of an event.

In therapy you will dig up and neutralize the trauma.


Early Childhood Trauma or Early Childhood Chronic Traumatization: the harmful psychological, biological and social consequences of stressful and potentially traumatic events during childhood.

In therapy you will discover, expose and neutralize the traumas from your past.


Meaningfulness: meaningfulness is often accompanied by life questions about spirituality, philosophy, inspiration and values. About the meaning of life and inextricably linked to it; death. It is the search for the meaning, purpose or goal of life. What makes life worth living?

In therapy you will explore what it takes to reconnect with yourself, your life force and to regain and/or give meaning to your life.


Individual session: €84 for an hour and €21 for each additional 15 minutes.

Relationship session: €112 for an hour and €28 for each additional 15 minutes.


An introductory meeting is free and without obligation for up to 30 minutes. If the conversation lasts longer than half an hour, the regular rate applies for the entire conversation.


Rates apply when visiting my practice. In exceptional cases I make home visits. Then a surcharge of €40 per hour and €0.25 per kilometer applies.


If you have additional health insurance, you are in most cases eligible for reimbursement. The reimbursement depends on the policy with your health insurer. You can check the reimbursement of your health insurance by visiting:

If there is no reimbursement from additional health insurance, the costs will be at your own expense.
