How we work.

Good therapy is in our knowledge and experience always custom made. We do use evidence based treatment methods. Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Treatment, EMDR, Systemic (Family & Couples) Therapy, Emotional Focused Therapy, Feedback Informed Treatment etc. etc. At the end of each session we ask feedback about the therapy. Scientific research shows that if the methods being used ‘click’ with the client, the effectiveness of the therapy enhances.

What clients say

We thought it was great that you didn't just go with everything with us. You have encouraged us. And that's what your parents need. Far too often we have followed the flow of our child. Someone who has an overview and thinks along. I thought that was very good. That drive to emotionalize and not just put that hand on the shoulder

The conversations helped me a lot. I have learned to help myself. I now have every confidence that I can do it myself. And that was different in the beginning. I am able to tackle my own problems.

We got through it and we were tired of fighting. We had also seen many psychologists. Finally a good psychologist who was able to provide insight into our problems. We have learned to tackle ourselves. We have learned a lot! It was not an easy process, but we even laughed a lot despite everything.
