Psychotherapy Laren

We all run into problems every day. Some are easier to resolve or deal with than others, but no matter where an experience is on the continuum from mildly problematic to traumatic, there is a way back to regulation if we understand how the nervous system works.

As we learn to become friends with our nervous system and anchor ourselves in a safe state of the autonomic nervous system, the inevitable challenges in our daily lives are no longer nearly as terrifying. We discover we can recover even from traumatic events.

In my practice for Integrative Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy & Counselling, my main focus is on working with clients with traumatic experiences (schocktrauma, developmental trauma, social/relational trauma), burn-out, grief, misofonie & tinnitus.

In my practice you discover how you can feel safe and connected by becoming friends with your nervous system. Your autonomic nervous system is not only responsible for regulating vital bodily functions, but also shapes your daily experiences. It affects your life, your emotions, your relationships. It determines the way you find your way in the world.

Although most people come with a history and their personal story of major life events, our work together is primarily about health and growth. When you are 'anchored' in regulation, your nervous system is in balance and you experience the sense of well-being that comes with healthy homeostasis of your nervous system. You feel safe in the world around you and can effectively deal with everyday challenges.

If you want to know more or make an appointment, feel free to contact me.


Online therapy

I offer full secure online therapy through a fully licenced organisation servicing therapeutic practises: MijnDiAd. You receive an appointment and a secure link in your e-mail.

Fees and consult-time for online appointments are the same as face-to-face therapy in my practice in Laren.
