Carla van Loon (English)
I’m a Licensed Professional Integrative psychotherapist, working with adults. My private practise is based in The Netherlands. I have trained in multiple modalities such as: Hypnotherapy, EMDR, and Mindfulness practices. I also have a specialty, and advanced training, treating trauma. My focus is looking at the body, the mind, and the soul as an integrated whole.
I work with people who feel sad, lonely, angry, have experienced a recent loss or life transition, and those who seek to find meaning and purpose.
Couples counselling: the focus is on the patterns of interaction and the underlying vulnerabilities, searching for a way out of their negative cycle. Life events can influence the relation, for example illness, grief or a family difficulty.
I have been a lecturer at Avans University, Social Work. Hands on teaching, no research obligations. And I’m faculty member of a private college, BGL, counselling and therapy studies.
See the trailer of the TV program I made about refugees.
I’m a volunteer at Join (support for homeless) and Impact (early childhood support).
