Connections and healthy boundaries for everyone
Connection and boundaries for everyone
My mission is to heal trauma within people and between people in relationships. My vision is that Emotionally Focussed Therapy, EFT, is for everyone. Whether you are in a relationship or not, whether your relationship is going well or not, everyone benefits from experiencing and naming emotions better. To connect more with others, without losing sight of your own limits.
My name is Aukelien van Abbema and I have been working as a psychologist since 2005, since 2011 as a GZ psychologist in my own practice. I also write and speak about relationships, connection and healthy boundaries. I also provide training on personal growth and leadership. In addition, I help leaders of churches and communities to pay more attention to the single people in their midst.
I am qualified and registered as a GZ psychologist and EFT therapist. Help with me is reimbursed by insurers if there is a referral and a diagnosis. I work on a refund basis. Everyone is welcome, religious or not. You can register via the contact form. I work according to the principle 'short if possible, long if necessary'.
Dare to Date
Despite the many profiles on dating sites, there is still a taboo surrounding dating in the Christian Netherlands. Waiting for the right one is an option, but doing it yourself is often more effective. Meaningful dating wants to make singles aware of their own part in being single. That is why we first look at the single itself: what is the image you have of yourself, what are your expectations? And when you start dating, what are the do's and don'ts?
