Stress Counselling & Therapy
Stress typically begins as pressure – from ourselves or others – and if we are unable to cope with this pressure, we feel stressed. The effects of stress will differ from person to person.
There are many things in life that can cause stress, including work, relationships, family issues and financial problems. For some, stress causes them to adopt unhealthy coping methods such as smoking or drinking - and while this may feel like a quick fix, these habits are harming your health and ultimately the stress itself still isn't being addressed.
Stress is experienced individually and some personalities find themselves more susceptible to stress than others. There are certain symptoms that are commonly associated with stress. These can affect us both emotionally and physically.
Emotional stress symptoms
- feeling agitated, frustrated or quick to anger
- feeling overwhelmed and teary
- feeling anxious
- having a low sense of self-esteem
- avoiding other people and social situations.
Physical stress symptoms
- using alcohol/drugs/food to seek comfort
- difficulty sleeping
- digestive problems and upset stomach
- feeling dizzy
- sweating excessively
- experiencing chest pains or palpitations.
The physical side effects of stress happen because of the hormones released by your brain during the fight or flight response - these include adrenaline and cortisol.

I offer integrative hypnotherapy, psychosocial therapy, EMDR and EFT (emotional freedom techniques) supporting expats living in The Netherlands to improve their quality of life. Contact me for a short introductory call.

As a therapist, I aim to support people who have trouble being themselves. People who experience pressure from their environment as a burden when trying to live their own authentic life. My key life lesson is that I don’t have to ‘do it alone’.
Every person experiences times in his or her life when things are going not so well. Times of fear, uncertainty or sadness. Dissatisfaction about yourself or contact with others, suffering from old patterns or unprocessed feelings. Sometimes you keep postponing decisions or something happens that turns your life upside down.
This can manifest itself in emotional and physical complaints.
These times are part of a human life. They help you to slow down, evaluate and work to move forward differently but in a better way.
Do you want to change things structurally and don’t you mind digging deeper if necessary? Then you've come to the right place. By just being conscious you don't rewrite your old patterns, which often hinder you. Those patterns are stored in other parts of your brain and body. That is why interventions on a deeper layer are needed to achieve lasting change. In these interventions I offer you recognition, safety and humour. So that you (re)find the track with more self-confidence, peace, balance and fun.

Are you an english speaking person, juggling with the stress of life? Feeling unbalanced, stressed, easily triggered? Maybe there are cultural issues bothering you. Or you tend to overthink or overeat or have other addiction driven behavior. I see all forms of addiction as a way of coping with feelings.
Do you long for a relationship in which you feel close and live your potential? In which you feel loved, supported and share your responsibility for creating a loving relationship?

(creating intimacy is part of the answer)

My name is Gerda and I'm interested in how body and mind work together for years. As everybody is unique, I work with the methods most suitable for you. Are you in your mind and thinking a lot, I will teach you how to listen to the language of your body. Are you overwhelmed by feelings and emotions, I will learn you how to get more access to your mind. You will experience you have so much more possibilities than you thought beforehand.
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.
I am a registered psychotherapist and the last years I have been working with expats in different mental health organisations in the Netherlands. Therapy is possible in Greek, English and Dutch.
Hi! If you're an expat/international, and are struggling with your mental health, then you're welcome at my practice in Leiden! I am an international psychologist (Indian) and having been through the struggles that most expats face, I am able to empathise with those themes. My basis lies in the client-centered approach (holding genuineness, empathy and unconditional positive regard at its core). Building on that I use CBT, Schema Therapy and ACT. I offer individual therapy and relationship therapy in English and Hindi.
You can come at a point in your life where you feel 'stuck'. Because of work, health challenges, relationship issues or other problems. As a psychologist I can help you to get connected again to yourself, so you can experience support and balance and live a full life again.
Methodologies I use are Acceptance & Commitment therapy (ACT) and EMDR. These are helpful with problems such as stress issues, physical problems, anxiety, burn-out, relationship problems, seeking purpose, grief, low self-esteem, etc.
