Who I am
Welcome! My name is Lydia Koken and if you're after an experienced, solution-focussed psychologist (who speaks English, Dutch and German) then Koken.care is a great choice. I have over ten years experience in psychology since graduating in the Netherlands from Utrecht University in 2005 with a master in occupational and health psychology and my particular interests are coaching, positive psychology, cognitive behavioural therapy, EMDR (very effective technique used for trauma's), short solution focussed therapy andThe Work (from Byron Katie).
How I can help you
I want my clients to be happy in all areas of their lives, regardless of their psychological condition. I work with them, and can work with you, to heal from trauma, refocus life goals, set new courses (whether professionally or personally) and overcome limiting behaviours or habits. Together we will ensure everything becomes a little lighter, brighter and more positive. As coach and/ or therapist I will help you strengthen your personality, find your passion(s) again and improve your competencies.
My therapy and coaching are always tailor-made to your individual needs and my priority is to work with you to get good results in the shortest time possible. A treatment is fast and effective, if the condition allows. I am an open-minded person and will build an effective plan that works for you and fits your schedule. We can start today.
Where and when
Appointments can be arranged via email or by phone, and all communication is treated confidentially. You can visit me in person in Sant Cugat del Valles (Valldoreix) and I also cover Barcelona, Sitges, Gava and Sabadell. Alternatively, I am qualified in e-therapy and e-coaching and can conduct therapy sessions via Skype or FaceTime in your time zone, at your convenience. If you are looking for a psychologist with a personal touch and who is always working towards a solution, please contact me today for an obligation-free consultation.
