Chen Thou Lin, PostMA, CPsychol, Counselling Psychologist
I was born in Taiwan, was trained in the UK and am now living and working in the Netherlands.
My work is Existential Phenomenologically based. I have also integrated other therapeutic approaches into my work, i.e. Cognitive Behavioural approach, Psychodynamic approach, Gestalt therapy. I have more than 15 years of experience in working psychotherapeutically with adults, children and young people with a broad variety of difficulties, ranging from life transition, issues around relocation, cultural adjustment, depression, anxiety, burn-out, relationship issues, stop-smoking, work-related issues, issues around motherhood and issues in life in general within the health, education, voluntary and private sectors.
Having lived in different cultures and countries has enable me to work with expats and different nationals openly and thoughtfully. I speak Chinese, English and Dutch and offer face-to-face psychotherapy in Amsterdam as well as internet counselling and personal coaching on a worldwide basis.
Since my late adolescent, I became more and more interested in mental health and mental illness. By taking up the journey of becoming and being a Counselling Psychologist, it is a pleasure to be able to learn about people, relationships, cultures, communication, philosophy, and life constantly and continuously. I also feel very privileged that, I am allowed to accompany someone to take on his/her journey towards a more balanced and fulfilled life.
