Hello, I`m Leonie Dijkhuizen

Hypnotherapy is one of the oldest forms of psychotherapy, also known as hypnosis and trance. You are already unconsciously familiar with it because you often experience moments of trance every day. For example, when you watch a movie or read a good book and in many other situations. There is, of course, nothing wrong with this. It is nice to be able to rely on the automatic pilot. However, what if this autopilot pulls strings too much, too often, or too hard? Then you quickly experience a problem. The automatic pilot ensures that you act and think according to old patterns you once built up in your (early) life. Perhaps these patterns were very effective in the past and helped you well at the time. The question, however, is whether these patterns are still that effective now that you are an adult?

Rest assured that your unconscious carries a solution to break these patterns. Trance helps you with this. As a result, you determine how you react, think, feel, and act. The trick is to learn to recognize your hidden qualities and to use them consciously. Because the effects of trance also continue after the session, you will quickly notice lasting positive results!

Hypnotherapy is best suited to anyone looking for short-term therapy with which you can deal with complaints quickly, flexibly, and purposefully.

Irritable bowl syndrome

A separate specialization within hypnotherapy is the treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), better known as spastic bowel. The main symptoms are stomach pain and problems with bowel movements, such as diarrhea or constipation. The cause of IBS is not yet known. Regular treatments, such as medicines and dietary instructions, often do not give the desired result. Scientific research has shown that hypnotherapy is a highly effective treatment method. In 80% of the clients, the complaints disappear entirely, and in 20%, the complaints are significantly reduced. I work according to a program that consists of about six sessions aimed at physical recovery and an undisturbed bowel movement.

My family and friends describe me as curious, thoughtful, level-headed, understanding, and goal-oriented, and that’s how I work as a therapist. In 2008 I completed my training at the Dutch Academy for Psychotherapy in Amsterdam, a four-year course in Integrative Psychotherapy and Integrative Hypnotherapy. Although my education immensely helped me develop specific skills, I believe that the qualities to become a good therapist have always been there. My aim as a therapist is to help you get back in touch with your own strengths and qualities. This process gradually allows you to face the challenges that life brings you with confidence. As a practitioner, I want to be there for my client and guide them in this transformational process. If you can say that you have become more yourself at the end of the treatment, then the therapy has been successful!
