Psychologists, Therapists & Counsellors in the Netherlands

Becoming an expat is a wonderful experience but for many - men or women, adults or children, single or in a relationship / married - migrating and adjusting to expat life comes with emotional difficulties that could lead to loneliness, depression, anxiety, anger, stress, alcoholism, sleep disorders and more. 

Apart from mental health problems, expats may also experience self-development or career difficulties (e.g. burnout), relationship problems, trust issues and others that could benefit from professional help.

Here’s a list of expat-friendly counsellors, psychologists, psychiatrists and psychotherapists in different Dutch cities and online to help you, your friends or your family members who suffer from mental health issues in English and/or other languages.

As an expat myself, with a wealth of life experience, I use a client-centred approach to provide supportive counselling to expats of all ages facing challenging personal issues. Sessions at my office in rural Almere Hout close to the A27. Introductory session always free-of-charge.
