I am the owner of On The Journey (https://www.onthejourney.nl/), a mental health coaching/counselling company in the Netherlands. I worked in diverse fields in mental health and working actively in the practice for more than three years. My background consists of diverse multidisciplinary fields, including counselling psychology and experience designer. I combine these methods in my sessions, carry out creative workshops with clients, and help them discover their inner child profile, childhood wounds, and psychological boundaries. Moreover, I teach clients methods that help to define and draw healthy boundaries (i.e., being more assertive, learn to say no). I do role playing with Barbies to discover and work on the inner critical voices, to overcome anxiety, and to reach a healthier mindset. Additionally, I have several scientific articles and a book on press about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I am constantly expanding my knowledge, currently doing training about Acceptance commitment therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), life and burnout coaching.
ACT: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
CBT: Cognitive behavioral therapy
Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
I have a positivist approach to consultation. I value Socrates dialogues and apply evidence-based techniques to help people overcome their anxiety, stress, break negative decision-making mechanisms, acquire a healthy coping style, and recover from burnout.
I highly value scientific evidence-based approaches like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other structural behavioral methods as a concrete base for my sessions. Book a free session with me to get to know more about my approach.
