Do you need help with an addiction? I’ll help you get rid of this addiction.

What is an addiction?

An addiction is nothing more or less than a pain reliever. The addiction has the function and ensures that people who are in more pain than they can tolerate “sober” can live and survive. People come into therapy when the benefits of the addiction are compromised, and the disadvantages, such as relationships that come under pressure and, for example, physical and mental deterioration, no longer outweigh the benefit of the addiction, namely suppression of the pain.

Finding the cause will help you!

In therapy, addiction is therefore the symptom and not the cause. And to find out the cause, we need the symptom. The most important question in the therapy is therefore not “how do we get rid of this addiction?” But the question “where does this addiction help you with?” Or “where does it hurt?”

Research shows that….

Looking at the addiction in this way you are not for me the man or woman a stubborn and denial addict but a man or woman with pain, who needs his addiction to function somewhat. In the meantime, research also shows that addiction is often an answer to the lack of “nutrition” in the social environment. Not being able to find support in yourself yet and getting too little and / or inadequate support from others or having difficulty asking this in a good way. The end of the addiction is therefore not abstinence, but solidarity. Sharing your pain together and asking for help. Get what you really need!

In the first conversation we get to know each other, we discuss your expectations and I tell you to what extent your expectations correspond to what I have to offer, I explain what the therapy means, I answer any questions from you and then we will probably go into the first conversation already starts with your request for help.

I do not make diagnoses as stated in the DSM V. I would be happy to explain to you in the first interview why I do not find diagnosing helpful for you. Nor am I from the questionnaires. I prefer to look in the here and now what happens, what I experience and together with my knowledge and sober mind I will describe my vision and your request for help as concretely as possible. If we agree on this together, we can start immediately.

At the end of the first interview or start of the follow-up interview, this must result in a treatment agreement as laid down in the WBGO Act – Medical Treatment Agreement Act. This treatment agreement must be signed by both of us.

By working in the here and now and my personal and practical approach I can say that I get results quickly. My approach will allow you to say after the first two conversations whether and what I can do for you.

The average number of calls in my practice is 7. This is easy to measure by dividing the number of calls per year by the number of clients per year. This is a reliable average after 8 years of practice.

To get a good impression of what the therapy can bring you and what you can expect below an extensive review of Charlotte, one of my clients.


“My experience with therapy was based on telling about the past. I had the idea that I could properly place and analyze past events and did not feel the need to seek professional help. During the conversations with Wim, the emphasis was on recent, everyday experiences instead of a chronological analysis of what has been. In this way, fragments of the past would automatically appear, but only if they were relevant at the time. Not only did I learn to post what had happened, but I also saw more directly how it affected my daily life. I learned to look without judging and analyzing. During the conversations the emphasis was not on a diagnosis so that I became responsible instead of what I feel and experience is done to me or happened to me. This gave me confidence that I myself have the strength to initiate a change. I lived very much from my head and saw my body as something that had to adapt to what my head wanted.

The conversations and exercises with Wim, in combination with yoga and meditation, have ensured that I now also dare to trust my feeling and that my body is a valuable indicator instead of a difficult appendix to my head. I always wanted to change everything about myself. And had made an image for the outside world of myself as I would have liked to be. It took a lot of energy to keep this image high until one day it stopped. Now I know that it is quite possible to change, but that it is especially important to first become “friends” with the qualities that I do not like about myself, which should actually not be there. I notice that as soon as I no longer reject myself, change happens automatically, sometimes even without realizing it. Once this was started I only realized that releasing the compulsive kneading of the desired self-image has given me a basic sense of compassion that I can always return to. A foundation that is separate from work, performance, beliefs and appearance. As an extra gift, friendships started to deepen, and dealing with others no longer takes energy. I no longer have to worry about my answers and stories, but have found the peace to listen.”
