Mirjam Tiel van Buul, an English-speaking and Dutch-speaking therapist in The Hague, Wassenaar (the Netherlands).
Mirjam is an accredited therapist who studied Clinical Gestalt psychotherapy in Scandinavia. She is a certified EFT couple therapist and EMDR therapist. In addition, she is trained in Schema Therapy.
She is registered with the EAGT (European Association of Gestalt Therapy) and she is a member of ICE EFT (International Centre of Excellence in Emotional Focused Therapy) and ISST (International Society of Schema Therapy).
Mirjam has been providing therapy and counseling for the English-speaking and Dutch-speaking within the international community for the last 12 years.
She also offers (online) therapy for individuals, relational and couples. Her expertise is working with different nationalities within the relationships.
She is experienced in working with people from all over the world, in respect to different nationalities and cultural differences. Mirjam has been involved with processes of change in order to improve someone’s well being, since she began helping people in public health organisation 25 years ago. She credits her success to understanding the principles involved of change to improve satisfaction and her approach is holistic and emotional focused that truly helps in reconnecting oneself, with others and within couples.
When Mirjam moved abroad 15 years ago, she realised there was a real need for English-speaking and Dutch-speaking therapy and counseling. Many places, as in The Hague and Wassenaar (the Netherlands), have a thriving international community because so many people move for work or love. Nowadays technology makes it possible to meet online with promising results which brings therapy closer to you if you are not able to meet in person.
Also Mirjam shares experience of adjusting to new culture. Our communication goes much further than language only. Even if you don’t feel competent enough in English or Dutch you can still enjoy qualified services in therapy and counseling.
Mirjam made me look at her as a person who actually cares about the well state of another’s being, not as a person who is getting paid to listen to me, which led me to share more and do it more efficiently so as to pinpoint problems, and also take her advice more seriously and with more care. That was something that surprised me the most and actually helped me get through some of my anxieties about various issues by just exploring them, not with a therapist, but with a very patient and smart person. I do not have the knowledge or expertise to accurately dissect and analyze her methods but I can say that she seemed genuine in character and behavior. Mirjam is an excellent therapist and I have taken her advices to heart and she will always have my gratitude.
There are people who touch our lives at certain points in our life’s journey. Mirjam is such a person. Me and my partner consulted her for both, couple as well as individual sessions. We very much appreciate Mirjam’s professional therapeutic as well as her empathic approach. With her warm, embracing personality she made us instantly feel home and we can highly recommend her.
Working with Mirjam van Buul has been a real blessing. She is intelligent, warm and always welcoming. She consistently challenges me, shows me new perspectives and respectfully provides her honest emotions and professional opinion. I feel the space we have created together allows me to be myself and feel completely supported.
