ENGLISH SPEAKING THERAPIST (native speaker)
What can be more frustrating than trying to express yourself in a language other than your own, especially when your feelings and emotions are involved? That problem can probably only be surpassed by having a therapist you can’t understand properly or having to translate everything for your partner as you go along……. And then there’s the cultural difference. Even if you’re from a country close to the Netherlands, the difference in habits, acumen and schooling can be substantial and thus detrimental whilst trying to communicate and truly understand each other. That problem is easily solved by consulting a native speaker! I’ve been through the same experience as you: moving from the country I was brought up in and starting a different life in a strange country. In fact I’m a field expert as far as difficulties and challenges are concerned, but I’ve found out that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
If you’re in need of counselling and are looking for someone who is totally committed to helping you though a difficult stage in your life or your relationship: I’m there for you. Sessions are possible in my practice or in your home, during the day or the evening. The methods I use are:
Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy
Rational Emotive Therapy
Coaching Relationship coaching/counselling
Solution Based Therapy
Schema (integrative) Therapy
More often than not I use a mixture of these methods, because I don’t believe in labelling people or their problems. The sessions are always made-to-measure.
