Live better, changing with your own inner strength
psychotherapy in Rotterdam and Zoetermeer

When can I be of meaning to you?

When you experience gloom or depression … anger or grief … loneliness … anxiety or other forms of fear … old or new trauma … loss (of work, home, partner, a person, energy, balance and rest) and mourning … when you feel fatigue, have insomnia, physical complaints (where the doctor has been able to give no clarity on) and a burnout.

  • You are aware of what you would like to accomplish, but you are not able to do this on your own.

  • You know what you no longer want preferably in the shortest possible time with a lasting result.

  • You have already done multiple attempts with or without help, but you still haven’t (completely) achieved what you would like to.

  • It is also possible that you don’t know where you stand anymore and need some clarity.

If this is the case I have effective therapy and coaching and I invite you for a personal interview

I work with people from the age of 12. In case of sudden shock or trauma I also work with younger children.
Also high-sensitive (HSP) and gifted or highly intelligent people find a good connection with me and my work. Also in case of NDE you wil find a good connection, since I’ve had this experience twice myself and being very good informed about the several aspects of NDE and researches about this kind of experience.

What can I offer you?

There may be spontaneous changes with my method and things can moved quickly. It can be liberating, giving relief and space for new developments.

What can be the results for you?

  • Experiencing (more) inner power

  • Experiencing more energy, confidence and joy

  • Experiencing of the now, the past and the future from a new perspective with other feelings and thoughts

  • Facing and picking up things with determination and a renewed sense of the self experiencing balance

  • Experiencing love and connection in and with yourself and with others

I think and feel in possibilities instead of impossibilities, focusing on the strong and powerful sides that everyone has, rather than the weaker aspects that we all carry inside and …. so-called weaker aspects can be seen and experienced in a different way.
You deserve to experience inner joy and an ever-present underlying feeling of inner peace. Then it’s also easier to realize that, under any circumstances, you are worthy of your place and who you are.

How do I proceed?

Careful, attentive, supportive, warm and encouraging, all together with a good professional background of work experience, life experience and study. This is the basis to guide you in the best possible way.
You are unique and each problem has its own specific causes. For these reasons the therapy will always be specifically applied to the person and his or her request for help. The goal is that you can find your own way out of inner peace and inner strength, with more insight, clarity, and balance, giving you the tools that allow you to use your own strength more easily.

My vision and approach are holistic, psyche and body are interconnected and affect each other. This means that it is important to see all aspects. If necessary and in consultation with the client, I work together with a therapist PNI (psycho-Neuro-Imunologe) and orthomulecular naturopathic.
In my therapy and coaching I use highly effective and proven methods that can quickly lead to a lasting result.

The duration of therapy or coaching is flexible, in some cases several sessions are enough.
To make an appointment or for more information, please contact me by telephone number or mailaddress or the intake form.

I will respond as quickly as so you can make a first appointment as soon as possible.

The thoughts and feelings in my head are calmer, my thinking is more positive and I experience more selfconfidence.  Monique is a great therapist, I felt very comfortable with her….I can say that I’ve made great steps in the right direction.

Experiences at Praktijk SENSUS

 Rotterdam and Zoetermeer

I experienced the consultations with monique as warm and pleasant. It felt safe and familiar. Her intuitive and energetic way of being able to feel is very beautiful and special. I’ve been able to process and release unprocessed dramatic events from the past. I am now completely in my strength. Monique, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Despite of the fact that I knew Monique privately I decided to share my past, “Me-too” experience and PTSS with her.
They were valuable, fine and also emotional moments during which I could fully relax and felt approached with understanding. I’ve not been able to achieve these experiences at the GGZ institutions.  It’s so important to have a good relationship with your therapist with whome you feel completely save and relaxed. Besides a fantastic approach Monique is also a loving person.During the extensive sessions i could fully give and receive myself, something that i really needed. i feel very strong again.

Thank you Monique

Because of bullying in the past I develloped a survivalstrategy that required a lot of my health and body which I was not aware of. In the end I got a big warning, I couldn’t go on like this. Together with Monique we’ve tackled the issues from the past and now I actually know who I really am. She taught me that I’m good as I am and to listen carefully to my body.

Greeting, Christa

i was overwrought and I experienced fear for my fear. Monique has guided me professionally in tackling that fear with EFT. Especcially the phrase “that I can change this forever” had a big impact on me and changed drasticly my former believes. At this moment I’m undergoing a transformational process and feel that my body is recovering more and more every day.The thoughts and feelings in my head are calmer, my thinking is more positive and I experience more selfconfidence. If I would have to indicate my feelings from 0-10 (0 is not good and 10 is very good) at this moment I would give it a 9.
Monique is a great therapist, I felt very comfortable with her. Now I’m some days ahead and i can say that I’ve made great steps in the right direction.

In january 2012 started a black period in my life and the life of my family.

With the age of 21 our son Teun made the choise to step out of his life, away from the earthly existance. Teun, always with a smile on his face, a cheerful sporty young man with lots of friends. For us so unexpected and we left behind with so much incomprehension and so many questions. Why…..why?
Grief and guilt dominate your life, every day is a day of survival, a backpack full of sadness so heavy to wear. Family and friends help to carry this backpack full of grief, but every time you fall back again. then you find yourself in a deep black hole. You try to find your way visiting psycologists ,experience group etc., but you can’t climb out of the black hole. you keep sinking further and further.
Via a strange route I got the address of monique. After some time, still somewhat skeptical, I contacted her to make an appointment. I asked myself: “Who can help me in this hopeless situation?” and actually found the answer: Monique!
It has been a long, intensive and sometimes painfull process, guided by Monique with knowledge and expertise. With her warm voice and caracter, her inventive way of working and patience she gave me the strenght anconfidence that it would work and I could overcome.
My live is moving again in the right direction. It will never be like it was before, but I can laugh and enjoy little things in life again. The first steps to restore the connection with my direct invironment and the people i love. Without the help of monique I would never have succeeded!

With Monique I’ve been able to experience wisdom and softness that made me able to feel at a deeper level what was going on with me and in my life. Her therapeutic guidance has given me new insight and I was able to change old patterns. i would certainly recommend her to friends and family!

E.

Hi Monique,

Your coaching has given me a lot and I’ve also learned a lot. I can and dare practice this independantly. The intense deep sadness that bothered me in life is gone for 98%. Furthermore I think you’re a really nice and warm person!! Thanks for everything!

Greetings, M.

When I started therapy with Monique I had been struggling with some blockades for years, I was completely stuck. Previously I had been treated by psycologists at the GGZ (mental health care) , which initially seemed good. Due to inadequate guidance and constantly changing psycologists (outside my decision) it didn’t work out well. There was a relapse and I lost confidance in the GGZ (mental health care). Through the guidence of Monique I regained trust in therapy and feel accepted, supported and understood. I experience a big change after 7 sessions. The bond with my son has improved a lot. I’m more understanding, sympathetic and more patient with my son. Before we had continuously conflicts.
For me personally there are many changes too. I experience a personal growth and are closer to my feelings. I’ve gained insights in the continuous repetition of situations. Emotionally I’m less flat, I’ve more confidence and feel more joy. I sleep well again, have less headaches and don’t feel tired anymore. I even wake up before the alarm clock rings. My work has improved. Through this great experience I feel better connected with life and feel accepted, supported and understood. I want continue this positive development.

I’ve been in therapy with Monique and that really helped me a lot. When I started I had felt depressed and weak, by the time I stopped I felt full of life and strenght. She takes time for you and is full of attention. At the end of the therapy I felt happy and in balance experiencing more and more inner peace after every consultation and that feeling remaines.
She is professional, has a lot of experience and quickly grasps the core. She’s also a nice warm person full of attention who takes time for you. I’ll always be greatful to her and recomend her to everyone.

When I met you thanks to a happy reference I was more than exhausted and not yet qualified with burnout. My condition was the result of years, if not my whole life passing beyond my own limits.

A few month later I’m delighted and amazed about the results we’ve achieved. I experience myself as reinvented. the core of the “new state of being” is that I’ve learned to know and accept myself. More aware of who I really am and my potentials it not only changes the perception of myself but the whole world around me. You hear and read such experiences from books and stories, but to experience it yourself is special. All interactions appear in a new light, it’s almost as living another life. Some circomstances or people in my life and invironment disappear or loose significance, others stay but i experience them in a different perspective….like panels that are shifting.

As a person I was in the center of your attention and never had the feeling that I was forced into any protocol. Without ignoring professional guidelines you used resources and methods as effectively as possible.

The way you’ve guided me was always surprising. You are a lady who meets people from your  heart, without loing sight of goal-orientedness and professionalism. The sessions with you were even my best trips and that’s because of your undevided attention. It often happened that when I mentiond something very unsignificant (to me) it turned out to be connected to a big theme.

My original request for help…the recognition, feeling and dealing with my own limits…..went through a whole development. There was a large tangle behind my emergency, which I’ve managed to unravel in a shorter period than I expected.

With your approach you’ve used a variety of methods: EMDR, regression, bio-ernergetics, familycontellations….you name it. The drawings you asked me to make at the start were special. They contained the red line that was opened up during the sessions. My drawings that to me seemed full of nice childhoodmemories enlightened constellations that were not as inocent and happy as they seemed at first. They were confrontational insights and it toolk time to comprehend and process. You have guided me in a sublime fine way. Looking back now I realize that in my original level of conciousness I was unable to recognize my real needs and formulate them.

Now that I’ve completed my process I’ve decided to contact you if necessary. I hope you’ll be available for many years to come.

Before I was 40, I had already experienced the worst that someone can experience. At least or me it was so. I lost my child. My world collapsed. I didn’t feel anything anymore, I didn’t want anything anymore and I hardly know how I survived this. Everything went on the autopilot. It is now 6 years ago and I was left with a very empty feeling inside, but now I can happily live and deal with it better than before. I visited several psychologists, but no one has been able to help me. Everyone listened to my story, but nothing else happened. I didn’t help me The answer was always: “You have to give it a place”. As if that would be so easy … Fortunately, nobody knows how and what those feelings are like before you have experienced it yourself.
Then I came into contact with Monique. I had to work with myself for the first time in my life. I had never done that before, with all the psychologists I’ve been to. I had to think about things, I had to feel again. Ask myself questions, do assignments. At first I thought; “how strange”, but then I discovered things about myself, which I would never have discovered without her way of working. Monique listened to my story, but really listened, how one should listen. She gave me a feeling of trust and safety so that I could really express myself and be honest with her and myself. I finally dared to express thoughts and statements that I have been deeply embarrassed about all those years.
Know I really have been able to “give it a place”, a phrase Monique never mentioned and feel lighter about it.
I can now clearly see things and deal well with my loss and sorrow. It feels good, I live again, I feel complete again. As a result, I work daily with sick children and their parents to help them, which I certainly wouldn’t have been able to without the help of Monique.

Thanks…………

I would like to tell about the incredible and wonderful experience I had thanks to Monique’s therapy, able to assist people experiencing black despare as I did.

I work succesfully as an indipendent lawyer in Florence, devorced with two grown-up daughters. Everything was fine, than something unexpected happened and I wouldn’t want anyone to experience the enormous “gap” I felt. My unconcious reaction was incredably strong and painful with panic attacks. In 3 days time I lost 5 kg of weight (I’m very slim), inside I felt constantly shaking. I couldn’t sleep or concentrate on my work any longer.

After the work with Monique it’s like my brain is re-set. After 40 days of hell my life turned normal. This morning people told me: “you have another light in your eyes, you’ve changed”. That’s right, I can feel it too. My eyes are no longer blurred and without expression. I’ve taken back my life and feel energetic again. I’d almost forgotten what it is liketo feel normal, the pleasure of feeling strenght and self-assurance. I see everything from a new perspective. No more despair and understanding of my shocking reaction that had to do with a previous trauma in childhood. It’s as if  I’ve got back my life. I will never have enough words to thank her. Thank you Monique, your great!

A.

I want to thank you for the guidance you have given me. I have gained insights that are very valuable and have 
a long-term goal that I can work on. During our sessions and due to your guidance I started to see that “feeling” is 
at least as important as “thinking” and that’s become very concrete for me. On your advice I've been on yoga for a 
few weeks now, what a glory!

My husband and I could no longer get along, we never went out together anymore and had a lot of quarrels. 
We thought that divorce was the only option. Eventually it also had an effect on our children. During a parent-meeting 
at school, it became clear how much trouble they experienced from our quarrels. That was why we started looking for 
help and made an appointment with Monique. My husband did not initially like the idea, but he wanted to cooperate. 
Monique has given us both the feeling that we were heard and understood. She respected both our vision and guided us 
to more understanding for each other and especially in listening to what lies behind our words and behavior. That made 
a big difference. We are more confident and have stopped fighting. Sometimes something still comes up, but now we can 
handle it better. Monique did this with equal attention and understanding for both ... there were tears, but we also laughed 
and that made the whole process lighter than we had expected. We very much recommend her in case of problems in relation and marriage.

Experiences with family constellations and othe sytemical constellations

Bij Monique heb ik familieopstellingen gedaan. Het was voor mij een leerzaam en liefdevol gebeuren. Ik voelde me veilig en begrepen.
Het was fijn dat we snel tot de kern van de zaak kwamen. Dat gaf mij gevoelens van opluchting, blijdschap en herkenbaarheid.
Ik zou Monique van harte aanbevelen bij alle mensen die worstelen met familieproblematiek.

Hartelijk dank en veel liefs van G.V.

De systemische avond vond ik heel geslaagd. Ik vind dat jullie een goede sfeer wisten te creëren en elkaar goed aanvullen. De oefeningen vond ik een goede manier om ieder voor te bereiden op het systemische werk en te laten ervaren dat je meer waarneemt dat wat je alleen ziet en hoort. Bijzonder vond ik ook hoe in korte tijd met weinig mensen mijn “vraag” werd neergezet in de opstelling en de bijzondere en diepgaande informatie/inzicht die daarbij naar voren kwam.

Ik heb zeer gewaardeerd dat je mij volgende dag opbelde om na te vragen hoe het met me ging en om nog even het een en ander na te bespreken.

Het is verrassend om te merken hoe snel zo’n opstelling doorwerkt. Mijn “vraag” ging over het contact met mijn moeder die buiten Nederland woont. Ik voelde me afgesloten omdat het me niet lukte telefonisch letterlijk en figuurlijk contact te hebben. De eerste volgende twee keer dat ik belde heb ik eindelijk een gesprek met haar kunnen voeren. En ook de volgende keren heb ik over het algemeen goed contact kunnen hebben. Een grote verbetering!

Kortom ik vond het een leerzame en verrijkende ervaring dankzij jullie professionele begeleiding.

Ik wens jullie veel succes met het systemisch werk.

Lieve groet,
D.

Een compliment voor jou voor deze avond. De rust en aandacht kwam bij mij heel plezierig over.
Je komt toch uit een andere wereld en voordat de match er is moet je even afkicken. dat deed je heel goed door met die ontspanningsoefeningen te beginnen. Is natuurlijk een must anders gaat het niet lukken. Maar de manier waarop , Uitstekend!!

Absoluut, je bent er voor geknipt. En zeker met de familie, bedrijf en andere opstellingen zullen en kunnen dingen heel helder worden. geen twijfel daarover.

I.

Ik vond het een heel bijzondere avond. Wist echt niet wat mij te wachten stond. We waren maar met een klein groepje maar toch werkte dat ook. Tijdens de (blinde) opstelling deed iedereen mee. Ik was verbaasd dat we allemaal zo natuurlijk onze representanten plek innamen en dat er vrij wat emoties los kwamen.
Ik denk wel dat als je dit vaker doet als representant, het je steeds makkelijker afgaat om de energie van iemand anders over te nemen.
Monique, ik vond je veel rust en zelfverzekerdheid uitstralen. Beide dank voor de inspirerende avond!

Groetjes,
M.

Bij deze wil ik je laten weten dat ik het woensdagavond een fijne avond vond.
De uitleg en de oefeningen van te voren, had ik nog niet eerder meegemaakt. Dat was goed om eens te ervaren.

De opstelling vond ik heel bijzonder, omdat ik mocht ervaren hoe de gevoelens van een moeder kunnen zijn t.o.v. haar overleden kind en hoe dit jaren later nog zo’n impact heeft op haar Zijn. Wat dit ook voor emoties kunnen geven naar de kinderen die nog in leven zijn.

Door deze ervaring kan ik nu beter doorvoelen hoe het voor mijn moeder geweest is en ook voor de mensen om mij heen die een kindje hebben moeten afstaan.
Weten deed ik dat al, maar voelen gaat toch een stuk dieper.

Een ervaring rijker, wat mij ook een diepere verbinding geeft met anderen die dit hebben moeten doorstaan. Ik hoop dat X. duidelijkheid heeft gekregen m.b.t. haar relatie met haar moeder.

Dank je wel voor deze leerzame ervaring!

Groetjes, R.

Ik vond de begeleiding erg fijn, maar kan het moeilijk omschrijven, aangezien het iets is wat ik voel. Ik heb geleerd beter een situatie van meer kanten te bekijken en de beste oplossing er voor te zoeken. Waardoor ik niet met een naar gevoel blijf zitten. Ook heb ik nu dingen uit het verleden af kunnen sluiten, hierdoor heb ik weer veel meer energie en kan ik mijn tijd in de dingen stoppen die ik echt leuk vind.

Groetjes, S.

Hi Monique,

I finally made time to write something. That same evening when I got home I wrote down my experience. Fortunately I did, 
because now I wouldn't be able to write my additions anymore. In any case, I have gained insights and peace. 
It has been a kind of confirmation. Now I can finally let go of everything, pfff ... what a lugging with someone elses hassle ......

I found it surprising to see that it happened with such a small group. It felt very safe, I have known Peter for a long time. He is 
safe and trusted for me and about you, Monique, I immediately had a very good feeling. Like a sister should be.

I found it exciting and at the same time I was expectant. I have often been abandoned and hurt and rejected by my family. My 
feelings of pain and loneliness were deeply deeply hidden away.
It wanted to get some clarity about this, because things are never black-white ...

The report on my family formation has been omitted due to privacy protection, the end is:
.... finally I took the place of my own representative, went on my knees and said to grandma (from a distance {the dividing line 
between life and death} while I looked at her) "I live my life and you can live through me, but I recognize that you are dead". This is 
important, this makes me free! I am not guilty of the death of grandmother or the inability of my mother to give and receive love. I do 
not have to solve it. This evening gave me a growing insight and a sense of my own pure autonomy.

I am.
I am free.
My I-Am is Love.
(these words come to me spontaneously!)

Hello dear Monique, you are a beautiful person.
Loving spring greeting,
M.v.d.V.

Business experiences

Bussiness and communication were blocked in some way and we did not quite understand what really was the core problem and didn’t know how to handle this, but the right guidance has been quickly effective. 
A completely different experience on the work floor. Communication is effective and bussiness is going well. We didn’t expect such an effect. You are a TOP coach !!
