Learn how to acquire the skills that are needed for discovering your pathway towards a healthy, fulfilling, and happy life.
An open, honest, non-judgemental, and encouraging approach combined with the skills and experience of a professional and devoted therapist is what makes (online) counseling at Barends Psychology Practice a positive and unique experience. I offer online expat counseling in English and Dutch.
After almost a decade of experience with a population presenting with long-term severe psychiatric issues and/or addictions, I now work with people who are dealing with anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress, relationship difficulties, grief, self-esteem and identity issues, addictions, anger management, work-related stress and transition difficulties. In addition to working in my private practice in Ljubljana, I have had a variety of experiences including working at a psychiatric clinic and an addictions clinic.
I have a Masters Degree in Clinical Developmental Psychology from University of Amsterdam in The Netherlands. I have completed specialized, post-graduate trainings in cognitive behavioural therapy, EMDR, schema therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy (mindfulness). For more information, please read about me. If you have questions in regard to online expat counseling, relationship therapy, family counseling, or traditional therapy in Ljubljana, please contact me.
In some cases therapy costs may be reimbursed by your health insurance company. Please, be sure to check what your health insurance covers. CIGNA health insurance is one of the health insurance companies that reimburses therapy at Barends Psychology Practice.
