Unfortunately I don’t have room for new clients at the moment. You can find a guide to mental healthcare in Belgium here, including links to lists of other therapists.

Do you want to become a better version of yourself?

‘Vivarta’ is an ancient concept. It stands for your true and powerful self, which you can express more and more by working on the way you show up in the world.  Whether you need personal or professional coaching or need a therapeutic approach, I am always excited to help people to be more their true self. 

Counseling

Psychotherapy

II am a licensed clinical psychologist, trained in an integrative approach. This means that I use a multitude of therapeutic techniques. Together we will find the approach that is the most beneficial to you. In general, I use use a very practical approach that focuses on the here and now. We will also explore your past if it seems appropriate.

To start, we need to get a clear picture of what your life is like at the moment. You can only move forward if you can acknowledge what is blocking you right now. You also need to know where you want to go, not just what you want to get away from. Together we create a vision of what it means for you to live a rich and meaningful life. For some problems there are tried and tested solutions, for some we have to find them ourselves through trial and error. I can offer you a large number of techniques to experiment with and know where I can find more if needed. Developing skills and a life worth living go hand in hand and reinforce each other. Together we will determine the first steps to take to achieve that life.

EMDR

I am also trained in EMDR, a technique specifically developed to integrate and process traumatic experiences. 

Coaching

As a solution-oriented coach I can help you to clarify why you feel stuck in some areas of your life and how you can overcome that. Perhaps you need help in developing certain skills, learn or break habits or finally get a clear picture of what you actually want in life.

I was active as a volunteer from 2011 to 2017 and have worked with people with cognitive disabilities and convicted sex offenders.  

At this time, I’m still committed to volunteering with limited engagement such as coaching psychology students.

Practical Information

consultations

I am available for individual sessions in my practice or remotely through videochat or telephone. In my private practice, I ensure that all guidelines concerning social distance and hygiene are observed.

Appointments can be scheduled on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday between 9am and 6pm.

I charge €60 for each individual session of approximately 50 minutes. Some health insurances offer a reimbursement. You can find an overview (in Dutch) here.

My practice is located Rue Saint-Anne 34, 1000 Brussels. You can easily reach it by metro, tram, bus or train.

Unfortunately, my practice is on the first floor of a building without elevator and with a narrow staircase. For people with mobility problems, this may not be accessible.

You can contact me by email at tina@vivarta.be or by telephone at +32 473 39 96 30. Before we schedule a first appointment I will ask you to give me a brief summary of your problems and needs. This allows me to determine whether or not I am the right person to help you.
