Psychology Practice Eos


Almost everyone knows the feeling of being depressed, anxious or tense. A lot of people notice the negative influence at work, school or in relationships. These problems can often disappear by talking to friends or relatives. Sometimes more help is needed. If certain problems do not disappear, you might consider contacting Eos psychologist practice.

Introduction
My name is Daniëlle Groenewoud. I am registered as a mental health psychologist (GZ psycholoog) and also work as a sexologist. I have worked in the mental health industry since 2003, where treatment and diagnostics has been my primary focus. I work with individuals and couples from the age of 18 at my private practice at the Keizersgracht in Amsterdam.

The name of the practice is alleged from Greek mythology, where Eos is the goddess of dawn.

Procedure
You can contact me by mail or phone to make an appointment. If I am busy you can leave a message and I will contact you as soon as possible to schedule an appointment for a intake. Before our first session I need you to fill in 2 forms, a application form and a symptom checklist. You can download them both herre. I will also send you a form in which you can indicate the reason for reference and a form where personal information is requested. You can bring these completed forms along with you at our first appointment or send them back by mail.

During this appointment (sometimes this will take two sessions) I will examine what is going on with you and give you my advice on how your problem can be best addressed.

Treatment
Treatment consists partly of psycho-education. This means that we will discuss how certain problems may arise, how they are maintained and what you need to make these symptoms diminish or disappear. Practical exercises, both during sessions and at home will teach you to deal with issues in other ways. During the treatment specific psychological methods will be adressed, depending on the issue. Cognitive behavioural therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, EMDR, Emotionally Focuced Therapy and sexcounseling are the main applied methods.

For the treatment of sexual problems we can discuss whether it could make sense to work with your partner as well.

After completion of the treatment your general practitioner will receive (with your permission) a letter containing the results of the treatment.

Eos can help for a variety of complaints such as:

  • anxiety such as phobias or panic attacks
  • depression
  • low selfesteem
  • relationship issues
  • mourning or loss of a loved one
  • unpleasant thoughts or feelings after experiencing a trauma
  • stress or burnout
  • a variety of sexual problems like difficulties with reaching orgasm, lack of interest in sex (anymore) or a difference in sexual desiresexual arousal or pain associated with sex.
  • difficulty with sexual orientation

Duration
Generally the treatment takes about 5 to 12 sessions.
