About GZ psychologist Sylvana Koene

My name is Sylvana Koene, BIG-registered GZ psychologist. My work is valuable to me, because it is satisfying to contribute to someone’s well-being, in a modest way.

Life beliefs

At a young age I already knew I wanted to be a psychologist. I was always interested in various life beliefs. I became fascinated by different forms of Buddhism, meditation and the work of Byron Katie, for example. And also by Louise Hay, Brandon Bays and Almaas with his Diamond Approach. This affects the way I work. I discovered therapeutic ways of working such as ACT and mindfulness. In my work I also use techniques from cognitive therapy, hypnotherapy, EMDR, voice dialogue, psychodrama and body-oriented forms of therapy.

Understood and heard

I like the motto ‘practice what you preach’ and work continuously on my own themes, personal and professional growth. Very often people tell me that during our conversations they feel understood and heard and that this gives them a good feeling. I listen with warm interest, without judging. I’m honest, open and straightforward in a tactful way. Often I hear that people find it pleasant that there’s also place for humor during our conversations. Personal development and growth are important and I see ‘problems and symptoms’ as opportunities to learn more from yourself and others. At the same time, I like to use practical solutions where possible and I support the idea of not making the problem bigger than it is.

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 Psychologenpraktijk Koene, 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 (mental 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.

English-speaking clients can also contact me.
