When someone really hears you

Without passing judgment on you

Without taking responsibility for you

Without trying to mold you

It feels damn good.

– Carl Rogers

Services that Bettina offers

Bettina offers therapy and coaching sessions for expat women living, studying or working abroad. During the coaching and therapy sessions you get the space and attention to explore very deeply what’s going on in your life, what you feel, what scares you and also what fulfils you.

Coaching session focus on setting and achieving goals in the present and future.

Together with you we will agree upon certain actions that will bring you closer to your best life. The expected results of coaching are that you are feeling empowered and experience a higher capability in following your way and your dreams by expanding the awareness of resources and saboteurs and moving towards your magnificent life.

The therapeutic relationship offers empathic understanding and unconditional regard for the client. Bettina offers therapeutic sessions to clients who experience suffering, such as depression, anxiety, isolation, loss or other deep emotional pain. In the therapy we are focusing on the whole person, your way of being and together we explore how you became the person you are. Therapy can help heal wounds from the past and helps you to understand your emotional pain better to be able to let go or deal differently and overcome your pain. All the therapy sessions will be in person. We will meet in Het Coachhuis on the Van Eeghenlaan 27 (Right next to the Vondelpark) in Amsterdam.
