A BIT ABOUT THERAPY

Learning more about yourself...

We are all different. In therapy we have the freedom to explore our inner world accompanied and guided by a caring therapist. Each therapy process is unique and tailored to you as an individual, taking into account your history, personality, cultural background and current difficulties. The intention in therapy is for you to discover new parts of yourself, alternative ways of thinking about the world or finding helpful ways to better cope with difficulties. The thought of attending therapy might be scary or intimidating, so please feel free to ask questions and share anxieties. I aim to provide a warm and accepting environment where you can feel comfortable to share and explore things that may be difficult to do elsewhere. Allow yourself the opportunity to explore, to grow and to heal.

 

“There are many ways of getting strong, sometimes talking is the best way.”

Andre Agassi

ABOUT ME

My name is Amanda and I am a psychologist offering therapy in Amsterdam and online via Zoom. I completed my Clinical Psychology training at the University of Pretoria in South Africa. Training and working in South Africa exposed me to a variety of cultural backgrounds, providing rich experience in the uniqueness of each individual. My experience includes working with adults and adolescents dealing with psychological difficulties, family issues, psychiatric conditions and health conditions. When working with clients I prefer a dynamic approach. In this way I try and assist you with thinking about where you come from, your relationships and experiences throughout your life and integrating them to make sense of current difficulties. I enjoy working with people who are interested in learning more about themselves, people who are experiencing specific life or relationship struggles, and people who are living with mental health difficulties. I have a special interest in work with adolescents and individuals with eating disorders, personality disorders and depression. I provide therapy in both English and Afrikaans.
