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.

About me

Life can be challenging at times. I am convinced – because of science and my experience as a psychologist – that psychotherapy can help you heal and grow while facing your challenges.

I have an international background and have lived and worked in Austria, Hungary and since 2005 in the Netherlands. Because of this, I have a keen eye for cultural differences and difficulties within a relationship, at work or regarding the meaning of life. During my 20 years of professional experience I worked partly in health care – as a clinical psychologist and therapist – and partly in international corporations as a consultant and manager. But eventually I followed my heart: I specialized in couples therapy and counselling and started my own psychotherapy practice.

Besides my work, I am also a partner, mother of two children, a devoted dog owner and an avid reader.

Only you can know what your direction in life is, but I can help you see the paths and make your decisions.


The aim of psychotherapy is change, getting clarity and understanding of your needs and finding the paths to those needs. As a psychologist, I will help you in this process. You are welcome to come alone, but also with your partner.

During our first meeting we will discuss what you are struggling with and what your wishes are. Also, I will tell you about my methods and how psychotherapy can help you or the two of you. For me it is important to build a therapeutic relationship in which we trust each other. So in other words, to create a safe environment where you feel safe to talk about heavy emotions or thoughts and feel understood. That is the foundation and from there we proceed. I use my knowledge of counselling, humanistic and existential psychotherapy and systemic thinking. By doing so, we work together toward the change you desire.

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.

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!

Ονομάζομαι Χάρης και είμαι Κλινική Ψυχολόγος. Για μένα κάθε συμπεριφορά έχει έναν λόγο και με το να το γνωρίζεις τροποποιείς τη συμπεριφορά. Κατά τη διάρκεια των συνεδριών μας στόχος μου είναι να εντοπίσω τι σας ενοχλεί και να προσπαθήσω να το λύσω χρησιμοποιώντας τα κατάλληλα εργαλεία. Προσπαθώ να δημιουργήσω ένα ζεστό και μη επικριτικό περιβάλλον όπου μπορείτε να αισθάνεστε κατανοητοί, ακουσμένοι και αποδεκτοί. Η σαφήνεια και η πρόοδος είναι πολύ σημαντικές και γι’ αυτό προσπαθώ να επικοινωνώ με έναν διεκδικητικό αλλά κατανοητό τρόπο.


Έχω μεγάλη εμπειρία σε περίπλοκες περιπτώσεις όπου υπάρχει συννοσηρότητα. Πολλοί από τους πελάτες μου έχουν υποφέρει από διαταραχή προσωπικότητας σε συνδυασμό με κατάθλιψη, άγχος, προβλήματα σχέσεων, εξουθένωση και κατάχρηση ουσιών και πολύπλοκα τραύματα.

Πρώτη συνεδρία

Κατά την πρώτη συνεδρία, ο στόχος είναι να γνωριστούμε, να δημιουργήσουμε μια θεραπευτική σχέση και να εντοπίσουμε τον λόγο που ζητήσατε επαγγελματική υποστήριξη. Είναι πολύ σημαντικό και για τους δύο μας να προσδιορίσουμε το ζήτημα και να δημιουργήσουμε ένα σχέδιο θεραπείας που να ταιριάζει στις ανάγκες σας. Χρησιμοποιώ για αυτόν τον λόγο την παρακινητική συνέντευξη, μια προσέγγιση που έχει σχεδιαστεί για να βοηθήσει τους ανθρώπους να βρουν το κίνητρο για να κάνουν μια θετική αλλαγή συμπεριφοράς. Αυτή η προσέγγιση είναι πολύ αποτελεσματική για άτομα που έχουν ανάμεικτα συναισθήματα σχετικά με την αλλαγή της συμπεριφοράς τους.

Μορφές θεραπείας

Χρησιμοποιώ τη Γνωσιακή Συμπεριφορική Θεραπεία που εστιάζει περισσότερο στα μοτίβα σκέψης και στο πώς επηρεάζουν τα συναισθήματα και τις συμπεριφορές κάθε ατόμου σε συνδυασμό με την Ψυχοδυναμική και τη Θεραπεία Σχημάτων που στοχεύουν να αποκαλύψουν τα βαθύτερα στρώματα της ψυχικής κατάστασης κάποιου, όπως τραύματα, την προσωπικότητά υου ή οικογενειακά προβλήματα. Για μένα κάθε πελάτης είναι μοναδικός και έτσι προσαρμόζω τις τεχνικές μου στις ανάγκες του.

Σχετικά με εμένα

Από μικρός άρχισα να συνειδητοποιώ πώς η οικογενειακή δυναμική διαμορφώνει την προσωπικότητα ενός ανθρώπου. Έχοντας πάντα περιέργεια για τις σχέσεις και το τι σκέφτονται οι άλλοι άνθρωποι, σπούδασα Ψυχολογία για να μπορέσω να βοηθήσω τους ανθρώπους να δουν άλλες οπτικές και να κατανοήσουν τον εαυτό τους. Κατά τη διάρκεια της καριέρας μου έχω εργαστεί σε διαφορετικά περιβάλλοντα με διάφορους πελάτες. Από ψυχιατρική κλινική στην Ελλάδα σε κέντρο αυτισμού στην Ολλανδία. Έχω εργαστεί επίσης σε σχολεία υποστηρίζοντας παιδιά, γονείς και δασκάλους. Η συνεργασία με ενήλικες ήταν πάντα το πάθος μου και γι’ αυτό άνοιξα τη δική μου κλινική στο Leiden.
Στην ιδιωτική μου ζωή μου αρέσει πολύ ο αθλητισμός. Είμαι μεγάλος φαν του Τριάθλου και παίζω και πινγκ πονγκ. Με ενδιαφέρει πολύ η περιβαλλοντική ευαισθητοποίηση και παίρνω μέρος σε κοινωνικές δράσεις όπως καθαρισμοί πόλης ή παραλιών.

Psychology is fascinating and I am fascinated by gaining knowledge about social relations. Dealing with people is one of the most difficult skills you will have to learn in your life, which is why I find it so interesting.

Life experience: I was born and raised in England, but after high school I went to study in the Netherlands. I studied clinical and health psychology at the University of Leiden and have been an independent psychologist since my graduation in 1990. Over the years I have gained the necessary life experience, both in my work as a psychologist and in other areas. That experience makes me a better care provider because everything cannot be learnt from a book.

Self-help: My goal is to help people get on the right track using scientific techniques. If necessary, I can point the way, but I believe you can do a lot yourself. By encouraging a certain degree of self-help, clients gain that extra confidence to get started fulfilling their goals and aspirations.

Being a participant: It is an honour to be a part of someone’s life as a psychologist. To participate in the process to help clients achieve their wishes and dreams. Clients sometimes say afterwards that they appreciated my help. That is good to hear.
