As a psychologist…

I do have counselling skills that will help you, but I prefer to work from the primary assumption that you are the EXPERT in your life! I therefore use narrative counselling as my main approach in therapy.

Narrative counselling is a unique approach that places your experience in a central position of importance. Then I use the stories you tell about of our life as the key to the healing or growth process. And through our conversation about your life stories we (together) find a way to shape new realities in your life. Ander create new narratives/stories of hope for your life.

Besides my narrative approach in journeying with clients, I am trained in the following (highly effective) techniques and brief protocols:

One of my main areas of therapy is helping people to deal with traumatic events. In my approach I use several techniques to help trauma victims to reprocess the experience of the trauma.

1. I will help you to retell the story in other, and more constructive, ways – without having to experience the strong negative emotions that resulted from the event over and over again.

2. I will assist you to rethink the event from a place of learning and to master the process of effectively managing the meaning you give to the event and the emotional effects of the event.

3. I will help you to regain confidence, consciously limit the effects of the event and to reclaim your life.

I also use TRETM  -  a revolutionary new method for stress and trauma recovery, developed by dr David Berceli.
