How do I know whether I need therapy or coaching?
As I wear many hats and have been trained as a professional coach, a body-oriented therapist, and provide training on topics of wellbeing and leadership development, an intake session will allow us to assess what is best for your current situation and needs.
THERAPY FOCUSES ON…
Sometimes it is necessary to revisit childhood and family history in order to look at it differently, to allow ourselves to grieve, to be angry, or to fully feel that which may still be stuck in our system. When you keep trying to change a behavior or thoughts, if you keep repeating the same mistakes, therapy could be a useful starting point. As a therapist my role is to help you understand yourself and to support personal change so that you are no longer imprisoned by your past. The focus is on the past with view to the present.
COACHING FOCUSES ON..
Coaching is an excellent way to help you find out what you really want in life, to gain a sense of direction by discovering your personal values, or working through a difficult situation. It provides extra accountability for you to accomplish goals in the near or long-term future and its success depends on your proactivity. As a coach my role is to ask you good questions and to provide a structure to explore different parts of your current lifeworld. We focus on the present with view to designing the future you want.
TRAINING FOCUSES ON…
While therapy may provide some psychosocial support and relational skill development as part of the process, coaching assumes that you are creative, resourceful and whole and that only some tools or resources could be provided as relevant. Training aims to increase knowledge or develop a certain skill and is usually delivered by someone who is an expert on a certain subject. Elements of any session may include ‘training’ on topics which fit with your specific need or coaching question.
Improving resilience with therapy and coaching
I offer therapy and coaching focused on developing emotional agility, capacity for love, and authenticity. Depending on your own life situation and needs, we will decide where to begin.
I am a psychologist and trained body-oriented therapist. I would call myself a humanistic, integrative therapist because I do not use one specific approach but instead choose what is best for the client. My post graduate study in psychology was in the existential approach, which is meaning-centered (See Irwin Yalom). Additionally, my body-centered practice (Core Energetics) incorporates breathing, movement, expression, and consciousness work. My therapeutic services are covered through alternative health care services in the Netherlands.READ MORE
I am an ICF accredited coach (PCC) certified through The Coaches Training Institute in 2009. I have worked with people on a variety of topics, including developing emotional competencies, career development, life purpose/vision and reintegration. In combination with my 7-Aspects Wellbeing and personal leadership system, I use Dialogical Leadership (Van Loon, 2017) to help develop reflective capacity and essential skills of dialogue.READ MORE
Freeing the system
When we feel stuck in the present it is often a sedimented mindset, or rigid pattern which we can’t let go. These are shaped from our early experiences and reinforced through our continued choices and behavior. For these developmental patterns, which even take hold of our musculature and body shape, I use integrated methods from body-centered therapeutic practices to work through and release the tensions of body and mind. Freeing the system can support transformation so that you can feel more alive, authentic and be fully present.
GRIEF AND LOSS
The below information is regarding my psychosocial and body-oriented therapeutic services. I am a Register therapeut BCZ© or HQT© (High Quality Therapist) in the RBCZ register. This has certain requirements which you can find listed on the rbcz.nu website if you search under my name or Core Resilience practice. For Dutch clients, I am also registered with VGZ ‘vergelijk en kies.’
