Why Elizabeth?

You have found my website so I assume that you have reached a point where you have not yet found your “place” in the jungle of therapeutic and psychoanalytic possibilities. Feeling lost and confused happens to all of us occasionally. In this position, it may be comforting to discuss a recovery process with a professional who can customise a plan which is fully tailored to your needs. I can assist you in finding the level where solutions are presented and bypass the “yes, but” responses. I reach my clients throughout Europe by means of personal video calls and face to face meetings in my private practice. I am convinced that you will become happier once you understand what stress is and how to deal with it!

S.T.R.E.S.S.: someone trying to repair every situation solo! It does not have to be that way. The advantage of a valley is that it lies between two peaks :-)

Do you want to start taking action?

Do you find it difficult to make the first step to a psychologist or therapist? For this I offer online sessions through video calling. This gives you the opportunity to do everything at your own pace and in the comfort of your own environment. We can make our first introduction by means of online video calling, a telephone call or face-to-face in my private practice.

My approach

Mocht je met mij een hersteltraject opstarten dan zal dit traject altijd uit deze 3 niveaus bestaan; lichaam, mindset en gedrag. Ze zijn onlosmakelijk met elkaar verbonden. Je negeert waarschijnlijk klachten zoals geïrriteerdheid, slapeloosheid, onrust, depressieve gedachten en concentratieproblemen al té lang. Je zit verstrikt in je eigen gedachten. Het stresskompas; met oa. de cognitieve gedragstherapie, is krachtig. Je kan hierdoor richting geven aan fijnere gedachten. Hierbij schenk ik jou een denkbeeldige stress-cocktail in bestaande uit drie hoofdingrediënten: warmte, humor en uitdaging. Je gaat verrassend snel het geheime ingrediënt van de cocktail ontdekken waardoor je gaat inzien dat niet de stress, veroorzaakt door jouw problemen, de boosdoener is maar de manier waarop jij kiest ermee om te gaan. Een leven geheel zonder belasting is verlammend. Niemand zou ooit iets zinnigs hebben gepresteerd zonder stress. Het is een aandrijver. Stress is een belangrijke energievorm; het stimuleert en waarschuwt je om in actie te komen, bijvoorbeeld door de bekende vries, vlucht of vecht reactie. Het mag alleen niet gaan overheersen want dan kun je vastlopen, zelfs ziek worden. Als je je futloos voelt en alle energiereserves hebt opgebruikt dan besef je pas dat er geen balans meer is tussen stress en herstel. Herken jij jezelf hierin? Dan kan ik je helpen.

Review march 2022
I am a 47 year old woman who has been in therapy since the age of 11.
Over the years I have sought out many different types of professional help to assist me in dealing with the profound & intense trauma which has been my life.
I believe all the help I received were stepping stones which prepared me to step on THE stone in which I met and worked with Elsje.
Her fearless, radical and super confrontational methods of treatment whilst simultaneously being an extremely compassionate human being are priceless. Elsje literally put me in the spinner at high speed, gently opened the door and then laid me out to dry in the sun. She has facilitated my being able to look at my life, sugar-free and unapologetically, which has led to a freedom I had not yet experienced in my lifetime.
Yes, there were times I wanted to vanish from a session and never look back, but if there is one thing I have learnt on my journey it's that no REAL change is possible without pain. Pain is growth, period.
So for holding my hand whilst confronting some of the most excruciatingly uncomfortable and painfull occurrences in my life and for laughing with me when the tsunami passed.........I am eternally grateful and would do it ten times over if needed.
