Are therapy and mindfulness not vague and floaty?
We usually trust our cognitive abilities whenever we encounter something. However, for transformation – profound change or shifting – our ‘thinking-brain’ is only of little use. If you are dealing with deep and old patterns in your emotions, thoughts and behaviour, attention at a different level is demand. For example, learning to understand your body’s reactions is far more important. Because these concepts are unfamiliar to us, we call them ‘vague’. It really is just a way to say that we don’t know what it is yet.
How long lasts Core Process therapy?
We aren’t able to tell you in advance. It depends greatly on the gravity of your issues or the greatness of your desire to grow – apart from your issues. Core Process therapy is, however, never a quick fix. Core Process therapy can means counselling for a relatively long amount of time, in order to create deeper understanding, insight and further personal development. You are more likely to spend a few months rather than weeks in it. However, some people gain benefit from even a few sessions.
Am I required to dig deep into my past?
In Core Process, you direct yourself at whatever happens inside of you in the present moment. If you direct your attention in this way, you will automatically be brought into contact with old aches and the measures you had to take in your lifetime to shield yourself from loss and pain. You don’t need to dig into your past or relive it: you can discover all of this by examining your current emotions, feelings and thoughts in a kind manner.
What’s it like to be in therapy?
Honestly: being in therapy is not always easy. Sometimes, it’s just hard work. At times, it can cost a lot of energy and you’ll notice that you really need some time to let some things settle. At the same time, you can begin to experience that you can use new experiences and insights in whatever happens in your life. Furthermore, you may feel a greater sense of ease within yourself as your old behaviour patterns are starting to soften.
Is it confidential?
Absolutely. Trust is at the basis of every sort of therapy. This also requires every therapist to protect your data from being accessed by third parties. We will talk about that at the first meeting.
Is this therapy covered by my health insurance?

Some health insurances will partially cover costs of ‘geestelijke verzorging’ and/or ‘mindfulness’, if you have a package which included alternative care. This care must still be provided by a qualified spiritual counsellor or mindfulness trainer. Insurance companies do, however, continuously change the conditions under which these costs are covered, so you will have to contact your company yourself to be certain.

What is our tariff?

Our tariff is € 75,- per hour.
The health insurer reimburses our care as alternative (psychosocial) care.
