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.

Nicole van Gans, Psycholoog, Hilversum
English | French | German | Spanish |
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.
