My name is Rik Vermeulen, born in The Netherlands, age 52.

Individual Therapy
Integrated Psychotherapy addresses the body, emotions and mind, and supports clients in their personal search for health, relaxation, authenticity and emotional maturity.
It is in early childhood that we develop a variety of coping mechanisms for ourselves, and often with reason. As we grow older these mechanisms often turn redundant, yet remain operational even when life’s situation may have changed. It is in these moments the aged coping mechanisms end up causing us physical and psychological pains. In therapy we bring awareness to your body and pay close attention to your mental thoughts. We explore the mechanisms, give expression to repressed pains and desires, and bring hidden qualities back into your life. Eventually, when connecting with your original desires, truth and perception, health, joy and creativity returns in your life.
