Above all, my approach is intended to find solutions, but it also takes into consideration the client’s biography and current environment. Together, we focus on the problems and on possible ways of dealing more effectively with those problems. Targets and visions, as well as the competing forces, are approached with experience, prudence, common sense and humour.

In the course of the cooperation, we bring to light “ingrained” patterns of behaviour, thinking and feeling. New, sometimes daring, ways of thinking are acted out and valid paths to solutions are developed.

Using proven methods individually adapted to each client, it is possible to try out various approaches to apply in practice. Feedback facilitates a continuous process of self-development and supports the cohesive everyday implementation. If requested, customised “homework” is offered for the time between sessions.

Step-by-step, and at your own pace, you can make important changes or achieve a more stable state.

Depending on the context and duration (individual, couple or family therapy), the fees are in line with the typical rates for an experienced professional in this country.
In general, consultations are of 45-50 minutes duration.
You can discuss in advance with your medical insurer the extent to which they are willing to pay the costs of psychotherapy in Belgium. (As a rule, couple therapy is not covered.)
