Fears and panic

Do you suffer from fears and / or panic feelings? I help you get rid of these feelings.

What changes! How should I relate to this?

You live in a time where nothing to little is certain anymore, in a fragmented society in which you have to relate to the disappearance of value frameworks, in which movement, change and thus also confusion of roles and identity, a lack of sense of security, a abundance of stimuli and current events, multimedia with lack of privacy and uncertainty about the future due to economic and ecological crises and so on.

Oops, Changes and changes remain scary

Change does not happen automatically and in principle goes against our nature, and everything else evokes not only curiosity but often also mistrust and resistance. And if you experience little support from your loved ones and people around you and you cannot yet mobilize this support within yourself, this often leads to a feeling of fear and panic. Fortunately, there is something you can do about this.

A different view of anstics and panic experiences

In theory of this therapy, we see all forms of suffering as part of the bigger picture and interaction with the environment. In that light, developing fears and panic can be very useful and often even the best possible creative coordination and solution within the frightening situation or environment. However, when fear and / or panic becomes predominant and obstructive, or generalizes, more energy goes to “survive” than to develop growth, from “new life”. The experiences of fear take us to a greater or lesser extent with the breath losing spontaneity and freedom in contact with others.

I feel supported again and not so alone anymore

The therapy is aimed at regaining support in yourself and also the skills to no longer undergo suffering alone. So how do I bring what I experience into contact with others who are important to me. How can I make the fears work for me and not against me. Recognizing that the fears are not the problem, rather the fact that you have not yet experienced the fears for what it is, which is an important signal that something exciting is about to happen, such as a change or something or someone new to you . The therapy will ensure that anxiety (against something) becomes excitement (for something) so that you can take healthy action and keep in touch with yourself and with that also with others.

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.”
