Psychologist Mirjam Tjon

Psychologist NIP and trained as a physiotherapist
In addition to being a psychologist, I graduated as a physiotherapist. Because of this combination I mainly have a practical approach and I look at people as a whole. In addition, I also go into depth and work together with you on changing old patterns and unprocessed emotions from your childhood. I apply different treatment methods and body-oriented exercises and explain the functioning of your brain.

What can I do for you?
I am involved and have a positive attitude, with the focus on finding your strengths and possibilities. From the first day on, I give you with the tools to have a grip on your complaints again. You also gain insight into your behaviour, better contact with your emotions and you learn to recognize and adjust tension signals. Because of this you will be better able to deal with stressful situations and difficult emotions in the future. Eventually you come into your power and you reconnect with yourself and the environment.

Work experience
I now have more than 15 years of work experience in health care and I have been working as a psychologist for over 8 years. I have worked with personality issues and traumas in both a large GGZ institution and in smaller institutions. In recent years I have given individual therapy in collaboration with a psychiatrist, where much attention was paid to the ‘attachment relationship’. I have studied this further by taking various courses in that area, including the Basic EFT relationship therapy course.

In addition to professional knowledge, my personal experiences and cultural background play a major role in my work as a practitioner. I am living together and am a mother of two sons. My origin is half Dutch and half Chinese (Surinamese), born in Paramaribo and raised in Twente (NL). Because of this I have had to deal with different cultures and I can adapt well. I have also experienced stressful, difficult and sad periods in my life, so that I can empathize with others. I am also intuitive, passionate and involved.

Tailor-made treatment
Every person is unique: has its own personality, faces various difficulties and develops at its own pace. The treatment is therefore tailor-made. I look at what you need and adjust my treatment and time accordingly.

In therapy and coaching I apply different treatment methods, including cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-oriented techniques, insights from psychoanalytic psychotherapy and body-oriented therapy, including mindfulness and focusing. There is also the possibility to follow individual mindfulness training.

For whom
You can contact me for all kinds of complaints. Below some examples:

  • Worry; are you in a negative spiral of negative thoughts and feelings and you cannot solve it yourself?
  • Overworked / burnout; do you experience a lot of stress, are you tired and do you not feel appreciated at work?
  • Relationship problems; Do you sometimes feel ‘trapped’ and do you experience feelings of ‘not being understood’ and ‘not being seen’? Or do you have the feeling that you are on your own or that you cannot do anything right?
  • Strong emotions; Do you ever get overwhelmed by intense emotions of anger and fear? Do you have no control over these emotions and do you want to learn to deal with them?
  • Cry baby; does your baby cry all day long and are you tired? Can’t they find a medical cause and are you desperate?
  • Unprocessed youth; do old painful emotions always play into relationships? Do you want to break free from old patterns?
