About Sarah

Hello, my name is Sarah Lou, and I am a French psychologist working with English-speaking expats based in the Netherlands.

 

I combine my psychology training and experience as an expat to help others with their personal problems through a client-centred approach. I treat every person as an individual, taking into account the multi-faceted aspects of their life to help them set and reach their own personal goals. I believe as humans, we are all going through our personal journey and no issue is too big or too small. We all deserve to be able to achieve acceptance and understanding within ourselves and can always benefit from a little help along the way. 

 

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology in Canada and my Master’s of Science in Clinical Psychology from Utrecht University. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Applied Behaviour Analysis and supplement this experience with my knowledge in Acceptance Commitment Therapy and mindfulness practices. I gained my experience from working with children with learning and behavioural difficulties and later on with adults dealing with various mental health difficulties. Today, I am a member of the Netherlands Institute of Psychology (NIP) and work primarily online with expat adults based in the Netherlands.

About Sarah Lou Psychology

Are you feeling overwhelmed, lonely, anxious, lost, depressed? Are you struggling with the daily tasks in your life? Is your relationship, social life, work environment taking its toll on you? Are you struggling with finding direction, motivation, focus? Is everything seemingly going well but you find yourself curious as to how you could develop yourself further? There is no right or wrong reason to start going to therapy. 

 

At Sarah Lou Psychology we will sit down together and discuss your issues and concerns and work towards developing a clear focus and goals for your therapeutic process. The sessions are approached from a client-centered, integrative and collaborative perspective. This means that your individual needs and goals along with your environment, relationships and cultural background will all be explored so as to create a personalized therapeutic process that suits you. 

 

The therapy sessions will integrate various concepts from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). While all have been shown to be beneficial in treating various issues, their aspects can be more or less suitable for each person and so will be adapted collaboratively to an individual’s needs. In general terms, therapy will involve exploring the various thought processes, behaviours and coping mechanisms you may have and the potential changes that can be made so as to reach acceptance and well-being in various facets of your life.
