Counseling we offer

Getting help at the earliest possible time is key to feeling better!

E-counseling

There can be many reasons why you cannot or do not want to go to a psychologist. Maybe it is difficult for you to leave your house, or maybe it does not fit your day schedule. Maybe you find it a step too far, or maybe you are looking for a psychologist with international background you cannot find in your own city.

With our online therapy you can always receive the aid you need. Even when away from home, isolated in a new city, the same therapist can be contacted, and therapy can continue uninterrupted.

For E-counseling you can choose from written communication (via e-mails or chat messages) or phone/video conferencing option, as well as the combination of them. For secure e-mail exchanging we use e-mailing option with secure login details, which ensures the confidentiality of your messages.

Multiple research show that E-counseling is as effective as face-to-face. It is just another medium for people to communicate, and after getting accustomed to typing, it feels quite normal to 'talk' to your therapist freely. It is mainly used to provide short-term support and has a highly solution-focussed goal.

 

For all E-counseling services you can pay by PayPal. Payments are easy and secure.

E-counseling fees:

E-mail single reply - €20

E-mail set of 5 replies - €90

Chat (45 min) - €40

Skype session (45 min) - €50

Missed session/late cancellation - no refund

Depending on availability, we offer reduced fee schedule for current clients, clients from developing countries, students and unemployed. Please contact us to find out more.

Individual Therapy*

*Currently we do not provide face-to-face counseling in the Netherlands. In case you are looking for an international psychologist in Eindhoven region, we will be happy to provide you with references. Otherwise, you can use our e-counseling services.

 

Each of us goes through many crises in life and faces emotional difficulties. However, often we refrain from coping with emotional difficulties as we would with medical problems. Emotional consultation in hard times can save you much suffering, while improving your quality of life and your ability to function and maintain relationships with others.

Our counseling targets:

Stress - including work, unemployment, study, relationship issues, culture shock, uncertainty about the future, identity loss, loneliness, low self-esteem, or feeling "out of control".

Psychological distress - including anxiety and/or panic, low moods or depression, fatigue, over and under eating, or lasting sleep disturbances.

Need for change - including learning the "how" of taking good care of yourself and feeling a greater sense of balance.

 

What can I expect?

During the first session, you with your psychologist will deepen into your current situation and create your personal action plan. Throughout the whole therapy you will follow this plan.

During subsequent sessions you with the help of your psychologist will develop a number of specific skills, which will help you to better respond to distressing situation. About half of the time we will spend to help you solve your current real life problems. The other half we will teach you skills to change your unhelpful thinking, behavior, and emotional responses.

Our therapy is time-sensitive, structured, goal-oriented, and problem-solving focused. It is also highly collaborative. You and your therapist will act as a team to decide what to address in treatment, what you will do between sessions to follow up what you learned in session. We pay much attention on relapse prevention. Our goal is to help you learn skills so you can become your own therapist.

 

We are contract free and we charge our clients directly. Sessions cancelled atleast 24 hours in advance will not be charged. Payments can be made by cash at the end of each session.

Individual session including intake (50 min) - €60

Subsequent individual sessions (50 min) - €60

Depending on availability, we offer reduced fee schedule for current clients, clients from developing countries, students and unemployed. Please contact us to find out more.

Individual Assessment

Psychological assessment is an integrative part of any psychological intervention. It provides scientific measures to conceptualise the case and formulate treatment goals. Depending on the client’s needs and the purpose of the assessment, we use a variety of tools, such as standardised questionnaires and tests, interview methodology, self-monitoring forms, and direct observation. 

For companies, we offer occupational assessment services, which include all-round assessment of candidates using the means of among others SHL Occupational Personality Questionnaire and SHL Ability Tests, role-play, and competency-based interviewing. This provides robust basis for recruitment and selection, personal development and career transition processes.
