Tackle your problems directly at the cause. With which I: Wim Weerdenburg also help you quickly and well

Therapy that quickly gets to the core, personally and without a waiting list.Do you have a problem and do you need therapy? Read how I can help you too.

Everyone is sometimes listless, scared, insecure or sad. There is nothing wrong with that, just understandable. For example, if you are (chronically) ill, have lost a loved person, raising children is more difficult than you had hoped or if you feel completely burned out. Hopefully you are already talking about your feelings to your partner, family members or friends, but it may not help enough. At such a time, professional counseling from a therapist can be valuable.

Therapy is therefore for everyone who wants to achieve personal growth and teaches you to support yourself and make choices again that are more in line with your needs and your environment.

Gestalt therapy

When you choose (Gestalt) therapy, you will notice that I not only consider your problems myself, but put more emphasis on the way you experience them, what meaning they have in your life and how you deal with them.

I will mainly focus on what your senses perceive and what you experience physically. This often provides a more appropriate answer to life questions than your thoughts. Gestalt therapy is therefore an exciting process, which is sometimes painful and confrontational, but also humorous and liberating.

What is Gestalt Therapy?

We live in a rapidly changing world, in which it sometimes seems as if certainties disappear and relationships are more likely to come under pressure. Gestalt therapy fits in with this development: contact is just as important as oxygen and water. A person is inextricably linked to his family, work, friends and the rest of the world. When a contact is disturbed, psychological problems arise. This premise makes gestalt therapy different from most other psychotherapies: psychological problems are treated as a disturbance of contact rather than a disturbance of mental balance.

How does Gestalt therapy work?

A gestalt therapist emphasizes the way someone experiences problems, what meaning they have and how you deal with this. Perceptions with your body and senses provide a more suitable answer to life questions than thoughts. By concentrating on the ‘here and now’ you reconnect with your own experience and you learn to deal with problems in a creative way.


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.”
