What therapy can we offer?
Practice for Psychotherapy Amsterdam and vicinity offers the following therapy forms:
The goal of psychoanalytic psychotherapy is to make you aware of hidden thoughts and feelings. This makes it possible to better comprehend, feel and process psychological issues. Your past will also be addressed in this form of therapy, because self-image and behavior are often strongly influenced in early childhood by the experiences of parents and caregivers. The talks will be done vis à vis. In particular, the relationship with your therapist is an important part of this therapy.
Supporting Structuring Psychotherapy on analytical basis
Supporting structuring psychotherapy on an analytical basis is a form of therapy which, in the first place is provided especially to gain structure in order to enhance the subjective /emotional base, to be able to then proceed to the processing of feelings.
Client-oriented psychotherapy is a therapy that stimulates you to make discoveries about yourself. Central to this is the reflection in your feelings and behavior and to confront them. This form of therapy is to let you experience who you are, what you want, and what hinders you in life.
Schema Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that looks at experiences from childhood to understand current behavior patterns. You teach yourself to change this behavior so that you feel better, to take better care of yourself and be more able to defend yourself. You will also learn to listen to your needs and to deal with it in a healthy way.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive behavioral therapy is a form of therapy that focuses on human behavior and thinking, interacting with environmental factors. Everyone does, thinks and acts in a certain way. We have learned many behaviors throughout our lives. Someone who has mental health problems can learn to think differently and/or to deal with it in a different way. The goal of cognitive behavioral therapy is to overcome practical problems, obstructing feelings, and negative thoughts. Instructions are given on how to develop a different view on issues and how to deal with them. Also, homework assignments can be given during the therapy. The commitment of the client determines the duration of therapy.
Partner Therapy is a form of therapy in which the problems you and your partner have must be discussed jointly. The therapist works with you and your partner to deal with issues in a different way. Especially the communication and interaction between the two of you is an important part of therapy. In therapy, you can become aware of common reactions to each other and understand the impact each one has on the other.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a treatment for traumatic experiences. For example, a (traffic) accident, medical treatment, or harassment. EMDR is also increasingly used in other problems and symptoms such as anxiety disorders, the effects of multiple trauma, and chronic pain.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a form of partner-relationship therapy developed by Dr. Sue Johnson. The recurring EFT patterns are detected among couples, so that they can learn to break these patterns and restore the emotional connection. EFT allows couples to experience intimacy, security and mutual trust. Scientific research shows that good results are achieved with EFT and EFT also consolidates these results.
Mindfulness is a form of treatment where clients learn techniques to be more aware of stress and to better cope with stress, pain and other discomfort. Clients also learn to reflect more on the things that really matter, both the big and also the little things. In our practice, mindfulness is often combined with other therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy.
Insight-Oriented Group Therapy
Insight-Oriented Group Therapy is a form of therapy in which multiple participants are involved. During the meetings, the group discussed all kinds of things together under the guidance of two group psychotherapists. Characteristic of group psychotherapy is that not only the client and the psychotherapist, but all group members, play a role in the therapy. People say things and do things that affect others. Thereby, feelings of recognition, anger, sadness and affection can arise. Those feelings are central to the therapy.
