Welcome to my website. I'm an English-speaking counsellor and life coach based in Amsterdam and work mainly with adult expats here. If you feel anxious, unhappy, confused, helpless or plain hacked off you have come to the right place. I can work with you towards understanding your emotions and making them more manageable. We can explore your circumstances, resources and behaviour and the choices you can make to improve them. In essence, we work together on shaping your life to better suit you.
Update September 2019: Due to a shift in personal priorities, I have closed my office but continue to work with clients via Skype.
Face-to-face coaching or therapy is the most effective. As stated above, I no longer see clients this way. Please see here for other professionals in the Netherlands who provide counselling/coaching/therapy in English: https://access-nl.org/what-we-do/meet-the-counsellors/
It's handy to have a session by phone when you're on the move, on your lunch break or unable to leave the house or office. You will be charged for phone costs which vary depending on your location. Landline numbers preferred.
With the video feature, counselling via Skype is the next best thing to being in the same room as your therapist and convenient if you would like to have a session from home or abroad.
Whichever method you choose, please contact me first to make an appointment.
