Are you looking for a therapist who speaks your language and understands your situation? Are you an expat or international student who is feeling lonely, depressed or anxious? Are you an international, multicultural and/or multilingual couple, facing challenges but wanting to feel better in your relationship? Or are you a parent, whose family is experiencing issues and need help navigating changes?

Living in another country is challenging. Getting used to living in a different culture, hearing another language, far away from family and friends, can take their toll. When living aboard, some people experience symptoms of anxiety and depression and face adjustment issues. Couples also face significant challenges and may place many expectations on each other. For families, living abroad can cause complex situations, with family members all needing to adapt to a new reality and start a new life.

As a professional psychologist, I understand your experience and can provide treatment. I can deeply relate to your situation from personal experience as well, as living abroad has been my reality since childhood. Growing up in an expat family, and moving abroad also later in my life, I have lived in numerous countries: Israel, Italy, Venezuela, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and USA. I grew up and still surround myself with people from different cultures and backgrounds. I can treat speakers of English, Dutch, Spanish and Hebrew.

Besides treating clients in my practice, I am also a scientific researcher at the department of Clinical Child and Family studies at the VU University and hold a doctorate (PhD) degree. I incorporate scientifically proven treatment methodologies in my practice.

Juntas seguras

Tanto mis experiencias personales como profesionales me han llevado a la misma conclusión: compartir nuestras vulnerabilidades nos hace más fuertes. Nuestra salud mental depende de cómo hemos aprendido a desarrollar patrones afectivos saludables y cómo creamos espacios de seguridad como mecanismos de supervivencia. Por ello, la psicología para mí no es solo un hecho individual y esta también relacionada con la manera en que elegimos vincularnos con las otras personas en el contexto al cual pertenecemos. Mi meta es, entonces, crear juntas un lugar seguro donde poder compartir nuestras experiencias y trabajar mano a mano para encontrar el equilibrio.


Creo en el potencial de cada una de las personas posee y en la particularidad de nuestras identidades. Durante los procesos con mis clientas, nos dedicamos a recuperar las habilidades y mecanismos de supervivencia para convertirnos en agentes resilientes no a pesar de nosotras mismas sino abrazando quienes somos.


Eso era todo? Por supuesto que no. Empezaremos por aumentar la conciencia sobre dónde estamos y qué queremos. Mindfulness es para mi una poderosa herramienta que nos permite mantener el foco en el momento presente para movernos mejor hacia el futuro elegido.

I am Eglė Naraškevičiūtė, an Expat Psychologist in Eindhoven. Being a migrant myself, I help other internationals adjust to the new country, relationship changes, individual past, present and future challenges.

My professional approach is centred around Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Systemic Family Therapy, which ideally fits in adjusting maladaptive mindsets and relationships in crisis—what is so common in the expat life!

With individuals, we follow Cognitive Behavioural approach which helps to change negative self-talk and reduce negative emotions such as anxiety, fear, sadness or anger.
With couples, we discuss relationship dynamic, learn to communicate and behave in a way that reduces the tensions and contributes to relationship growth.

I have studied and gained experience in four different countries. Living in several places and having constant international interactions made me deeply familiar with expat problems not only through professional, but also personal level. I breathe expat experience—that’s how much I know it!

I am also available for online therapy.

My name is Nicole van Gans, I am psychologist in Hilversum. You can contact me with various problems like anxieties (panic attacks, phobias, obsessions/compulsions, many worries/fretting), depression, loss/bereavement, burnout/stress, uncertainty, psychosomatic complaints and high sensitivity. I use various techniques amongst others eco-psychology, which is treatments in nature.

It is important that there is a click between us and that you feel affinity with the methodology that we choose together. In principle, all techniques that we use in my practice can also be used in nature if it appeals to you. Everything grows where your attention goes! My experience is that you progress quicker by doing exercises between the sessions. In fact, everything has to do with focus: we choose the area on which you want to work. It is at this area on which you focus your attention with exercises.

In my practice, ecopsychology, mindfulness and positive psychology are coming together. Mindfulness helps to deal with the hurdles in life. It trains your attention and gives peace of mind. You learn very well how to handle thoughts and emotions. Positive psychology ensures that you get an eye for the things that go well. Sometimes you are so busy with your complaints that everything that goes well disappears into the background. If you work on strengthening what goes well and how you can thrive/flourish, then your complaints automatically become less important or even resolve altogether. Other techniques that I work with are energy psychology and cognitive behavioral therapy.

For an individual appointment at Psychologist Hilversum you pay € 95 for a session of 45 minutes. If you need to cancel an appointment, kindly do this at least 24 hours in advance so that I can plan another client. Otherwise, I unfortunately have to charge it. I am an affiliate with the VBAG (professional organisation). Would you like to learn more about Psychologist Hilversum or would you like to make an appointment? Please feel free to call Psychologist Hilversum for attention of Nicole van Gans. I’d like to get to know you!

Do you feel like you’re getting stuck in a rut? Do you feel afraid, anxious, sad or stressed? As a psychologist, I can offer you support and listen to you without judgement. The therapy will be centred around your wishes, and by providing therapeutic treatment, I will offer you the help needed so you can get back on your feet. My aim is to help you straight away, so there are no waiting lists, and making an appointment outside of office hours is possible as well. I mainly work in Nijmegen, Arnhem, and Ede-Wageningen – and in London in the UK – but meeting up somewhere else, preferably in the region, can be discussed.

I came from Serbia when I was 29 years old. I had a university diploma in psychology and I was looking forward to begin a new chapter in my life. It turned out that my diploma here in the Netherlands was assessed on a bachelor level and I still wanted to do my masters. So I did it. And I learned Dutch. And I got married and got children.

I was already doing a volunteer work in my field, but I wanted to transition to a paid job. And then I was trying to figure out how to find my place in this society. At first, everything was so different than I was used to. Then I started getting used to the new ways of looking at life and dealing with different aspects of it. Things I once found strange became usual.
