About GZ psychologist Amanda Klinkhamer

My method

In my work, I attach great importance in providing an equal and committed contact to put clients at ease when talking about the difficulties they face. I am interested in their own story and like to understand them from their own position and values. Only when people really feel heard, there will be room to work on change.

Clients call me involved, warm, respectful, critical and optimistic. I have strong analytical and empathic skills, which I personalize to you and your story and the core of the problem often becomes clear. I use different treatment methods from client-oriented therapy, insightful therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-oriented therapy, positive psychology, ACT and EMDR.

Your own guidance in the treatment process (within and outside the sessions) is important to search together for tailor-made solutions and to work purposefully towards improvement. The treatment will not only focus on reducing the problems, but we will also pay attention to recognizing and strengthening your own qualities

My vision

Every person is unique with his own personality, beliefs and behavior. But also with his own talents, strengths and capacities. During the psychology study I noticed that the qualities of clients were often underexposed. I really wanted to empower people by helping them develop from their strength and not only provide recovery for their problems.

Fortunately, I found recognition within positive psychology and solution-oriented therapy, where an appreciative approach is used with attention to both aspects. By paying attention to the qualities of clients, I experience that they grow towards more confidence in themselves and the world around them and feel stronger to continue on their own.

My work experience

I have studied clinical psychology for adults as well as developmental psychology for children and youth.

I enjoyed working for eight years in animal support therapy for children with autism and/or Down syndrome and their parents and supervisors. Besides, I worked for 3 years in the medical setting of hospitals and general practices where I guided clients with (chronic) illnesses or extremely overweight in their process and offered treatments aimed at processing major accidents, childbirths or operations.

Since 7 years I work in ‘primary psychological care / general GGZ (mental health care)’, especially with (young) adults and to a lesser extent with children and parents. What appeals to me in this setting is the diversity in the problems and the relatively rapid changes that clients notice after a number of conversations.

For whom

You can contact me with all kinds of common mental health problems. English-speaking clients can also contact me.

Privacy

The General Data Protection Regulation (AVG) applies as of 25 May 2018. This means that from that date onwards, the same privacy legislation applies throughout the European Union (EU). The Personal Data Protection Act (Wbp) then no longer applies.
Here you will find my personal privacy statement, under the name Psychologie Praktijk Amanda Klinkhamer, according to NVGZP Model Privacy Statement for independently established GZ psychologists, clinical psychologists and clinical neuropsychologists.

Quality statute

As of January 1, 2017 all providers of ‘medical GGZ (medical health care)’, i.e. Generalist Basic GGZ and Specialized GGZ within the Health Insurance Act, are obliged to make a quality statute public. See here my approved quality statute.
