Feeling lost in a strange country? Knowing you should be happy, but you’re not? Suffered a loss, and not knowing how to get going again? Just not working out for you, and in need of an empathic ear to listen to you? You’re welcome to come talk to me.

Having lived in the United States and in the United Kingdom I know from experience how overwhelming moving and settling can be. I spent five years in New York, six years in Washington DC and three in London before returning to my native Holland in 2008. Coming back to the country I was born in, felt like another expat move.

Talk about feeling lost. My late wife used to say “home is where your stuff is”. That approach works, yes. But what do you do when your heart is protesting? When things just aren’t working out, for whatever reason? Who do you turn to in a foreign country when your relationship sours, when you lose a loved one or when you feel stuck in your job or your life?

I offer life counseling to English speaking clients at my own private practice in Amsterdam-Zuid. During one or more therapy consults you and I can explore not only what’s bothering you now, but also on what preceded this. I like to focus on your personal life story by trying out methods that are based on the principles of systemic work, transactional analysis and neuro-linguistic programming.

Bottom-line, I offer you an environment in which you can safely open up, share and rely on a professional therapist who may be able to offer the help you need. I prefer to meet first to make sure that you and I feel the right connection to proceed or not. This (billable) intake/first session lasts 1 hour and 15 minutes, as do any follow-up sessions.

I also offer consultation online, depending on your situation and where you live. Sometimes I might opt for a nature walk. Plenty of quiet and beautiful places in and near Amsterdam.

My consults are not covered by insurance. They might be deductable through work. My fees are based on your personal and/or work situation.
