Cognitive behavioral therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy ( CBT) The starting point here is that psychological complaints are related to how someone views a certain situation or event (cognitions). CBT is an active therapy in which someone learns to look at situations and events differently and deal with them differently. In this therapy we investigate together what your thinking habits are. Then you learn to turn the thoughts that do not help and that make you feel bad into 'helping' thoughts.


EMDR is a therapy for people who continue to suffer from a major event, such as an accident, death or violent incident. Certain events can deeply affect people's lives. Many people process these experiences on their own. In others, however, psychological complaints develop. Read here more about EMDR.

Within the practice we use, among other things, an EMDR light tube so that we can apply the treatment from a distance. This allows us to properly observe the corona measures. In the video below you can see the EMDR light tube that we use in our practice.



ACT therapy is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy in which the acceptance and embracing of complaints (acceptance) is central. We think about how you can lead a valuable life. You practice accepting complaints instead of constantly fighting against them. Practicing this creates  space to focus on things that are important to you (commitment). By practicing a lot you work on increasing your psychological flexibility and it makes you mentally stronger and more resilient.


ACT therapy consists of 6 core processes:
