Holistic therapeutic treatments
With Esther van der Sande
Body-oriented Psychodynamic psychotherapy: including in-depth guidance
Attachment issues, trauma, developmental trauma (complex trauma), accidents, processing, grief & loss, PTSD, stress coaching and counselling.
If there is something preventing you from living your life the way that feels right for you, it may at some point become increasingly prominent. That ‘something’ often dates back to your past and is usually persistent, because it is buried in a combination of unresolved issues or situations, resistance and uncomfortable habituation.
It becomes the centre of negative attention and expresses itself as dissatisfaction and disconnection from ourselves and the world around us. In your mind, you do not feel good about yourself or are insecure about whether you are good enough... To sum up, you don’t feel free to be the way you can be, naturally.
The counselling I offer can help you focus on what really needs attention. It can calm the storms of your thoughts and help you achieve peace. Your body can allow itself to relax, and the whole that you are can recognize itself as being whole again.
It requires your willingness to allow room for this restorative attention to yourself. You do not have to do it alone. As your therapist, I will listen without judgement to what you are really saying. Together with you, I look at what is difficult to face, but without triggering the responses of the past. I am there for you in what can feel painful. We then reflect on what that means in the larger context of your life.
I work from the psychodynamic view that stems from an Eastern sense of unity connected with Western practical psychological understanding. In my therapy sessions, I use a range of techniques including psychotherapy and transactional analysis (TA), mindfulness, neuro-psychotherapy, EMDR and yoga.
Together, we will take a journey until you have really experienced the result of the therapy in your daily life, as a renewed awareness of the space in your own life flow.
Together, we will use therapy to work at a pace that is comfortable for you. My goal is to make you feel better and to free you from the grip of anxiety, depression and emotional hurt. I will help you develop new skills and capabilities, to create a stronger ‘you’ in the way that you want. Many people regard this as developing a stronger ‘sense of self’.
Actually, all qualities that you need to build a stronger you, are already within you but these are sometimes pushed to the background by the events we experience in our life. Greater awareness allows us to make better and healthier choices, to feel connected and to work on the things preventing us from achieving that.
Clients who have completed therapy often feel stronger, look at life with a more positive view, find that they can take on the world again, that they enjoy life again, that energy can flow once more and that they have compassion for themselves.
