GZ van Kuilenburg aims to provide care for people who do not speak Dutch or prefer treatment in English. You can contact me in case of need for help and /or any mental health related issues or questions. For example when you are an exchange student or an expat, working, studying and staying for some time in the Netherlands and experiencing emotional difficulties. To start with treatment you need a referral (letter from you GP) stating your treatment-related questions for basic mental health care (Generalistische BasisGGZ) including a diagnosis (DSM-5 code). Your GP will now what is needed to be admitted for treatment in an independent (private) practice.
Only recently I founded my private practice, this summer (2022). Children, adolescents and adults are welcome for a variety of problems, such as anxiety, specific phobias, depression, major or traumatic life events, emotion regulation problems, burn-out, sleeping problems, low self-esteem, problems with education or work, eating disorders, behavioral or impuls control disorders, developmental disorders (ADHD, autism spectrum disorders), grief, and problems related to developmental stages such as adolescence or young motherhood.
Since I studied in Bangor, Wales (UK) for almost a year and graduated my study Clinical and Health Psychology (University of Leiden) in English, I am able to provide for English spoken treatments such as EMDR, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, schema-focused psychotherapy and mindfulness. Therapy can be provided for children, adolescents and adults from 6 to 66 years old.
I am also working with life-style related problems and training programs, such as stress management, activity and excercise scheduling, running therapy and yoga exercise or sensori-motor psychotherapy principles. Since I adhere to a holistic approach and make use of the knowledge that body and mind are inseparable and highly connected, I will always look at self-care and exercise as part of the treatment plan. Also, I am trying to make therapy more efficient by using digital delivery methods if needed or desired.
Furthermore I am specialised in different types of trauma treatments e.g. EMDR, trauma-focused CBT, cognitive behavioural writing therapy, EMDR story telling method, and schema-focused psychotherapy.
In the first contact I will adress the following: the reason of referral and by whom, to find out whether help is needed on a short-term basis and to discuss the waiting list. When more urgent or more specialised help is needed, I will refer you to a therapist or institution which can provide this type of care. Lastly, I need to explain the costs of the therapy and the invoice. You will receive an invoice at the end of the month, which you have to pay yourself first, and then the invoice can be submitted to your insurance company.
