Lisa | Counselor and coach

Therapy Heemstede

Welcome to my page. My name is Lisa. I have a private practice for counseling and coaching in Heemstede.

Are you looking for a counselor or coach whom you can contact at short notice? I'm happy to help. Perhaps you suffer from stress or burnout symptoms, anxiety or panic, trauma or persistent pain (e.g. IBS).

I have experience in treating issues that may have a psychological and or physical impact. In combination with talking therapy I work with EMDR and cognitive hypnotherapy and also - body-oriented - with Craniosacral therapy and the Buteyko method (breathing therapy). We discuss what is suitable for you personally. If it is important for your recovery and development, you will learn exercises and skills that you will continue with between sessions at home.

Treatment sessions
The starting point is your request for help and the goal you want to achieve. That determines the process we go through together. I always start with what is happening for you now. However, it might be possible that you are bothered by things from your past, which needs attention too.

It is important to find out why the problem persists. For example, persistent anxiety often has to do with avoidance behavior. Otherwise, you may have fear about the future and have - realistic or not so realistic - concerns that deserve attention.

As our body and mind are intertwined, our thoughts and feelings have a mutual influence. During our sessions we pay attention to this, and I react flexible at what is needed at that moment. I respond to what you say and experience.

About myself
I have a private therapy practice since 2017. Since then I have been able to help more than 250 clients in various ways. I do so with the therapy courses I have followed and my personal life experience. In addition, I continue to expand my therapeutic knowledge and skills with further training.

If you want to know more or make an appointment, please feel free to contact me.

EMDR therapy

We can use EMDR if you continue to suffer from one or more profound past experiences. This is the case when those memories recur in situations similar to the traumatizing event. This can be accompanied by strong emotions, vivid images and physical reactions including hyperventilation or pain.


EMDR is a method by which you reprocess the memory so that it loses its emotional impact.


Hypnotherapy is a comfortable method for stress, fears and phobias and in particular for pain management. In hypnosis you will be guided by me with therapeutic suggestions which I tailor to the problem and the goal you want to achieve.

You use your imagination to change negative thoughts into positive, helpful thoughts, which in turn affect your emotions and bodily sensations.  

Craniosacral therapy
In craniosacral therapy I work with gentle manual techniques aimed at tense areas in the body. During the treatment you simply lie dressed on the treatment table. My treatment aims to (re)find relaxation, support recovery from stress or trauma or reduce pain.

Clients in my practice usually follow it as an additional method during the therapy process 

Buteyko breathing therapy
It takes about fives sessions to learn the entire Buteyko method. The goal of the therapy is to restore nasal breathing and normal, functional breathing patterns.

The method is effective for respiratory diseasesbut also for stress and anxietyhyperventilation, high blood pressure and sleeping problems. During the sessions I explain what healthy breathing is and you will learn all the exercises that are suitable for you. At home, you actively work on this. During the sessions we evaluate your progress
