Therapy sessions can be demanding. Thankfully, we are located very close to the beach and we encourage you to enjoy a walk at the boulevard or through the sand while reflecting on our session.

Complaints you might experience

Anxiety

It can come in many forms and colors. You might feel severely limited to engage in social situations, be overly concerned about things in life you were never before. You experience fear and it limits your quality of life.

Depression

You experience a low mood for longer periods of time. Things you enjoyed are not giving you joy anymore. You might sleep much more or much less.

Psychosomatic symptoms

This is the term for all bodily complaints that can not be explained by a physical cause, like for example headaches, muscle-pain and back pain. They are often a result of long-term stress.

Burnout

If you are part of the expat community, you run a much higher risk to get overworked to an extent that you eventually suffer from a burnout. You might experience somatic, depressive or anxiety symptoms.
