Therapy

Welcome

Are you looking for a warm, supportive, and confidential environment responsive to your unique needs and therapeutic goals? I can help you understand old maladaptive patterns and create new positive ways of connecting in the world. My goal is to assist you in discovering your own answers to your questions. Apart from that, I can help you with processing difficult experiences in your life to become more resilient and to experience more freedom in life. Rigid negative patterns which prevent you from living your life according to your values can also be addressed.

 

How do I work?

I use an integrative approach and adjust my choices of modalities and approaches to the individual needs of the clients. It can be helpful to come at one’s issues from many angles and to work with mind, body, and spirit. The focus can include increasing effective coping strategies, strengthening internal resources, and becoming more empowered. See more about treatment modalities

We will work as a team, and therefore we will have both responsibilities to make the therapy successful. I will regularly check if you are satisfied with my approach or if it needs some adjustment. Feel free to give feedback and/or suggestions. When there is anything that bothers you about the therapy, I am open to finding a way that works for both of us in order to maintain a trusting environment.

 

What kind of issues can I help you with?

I can assist you in helping relieve mood swings, depression, anxiety, grief and anger as well as chronic illness/pain, addiction, eating-disorder, phobia, relational and work-related issues. Facilitating healing from trauma (also PTSS), alleviating burn-out, and navigating the challenges of Autism are also my specialties.

Whatever tools I use to assist you, it is very important for me to maintain a warm, open, and respectful approach and to always have your consent. I take time for you and I will work with you (and sometime also other important people in your life) as a team to address your issues.

 

Who can I help?

I welcome Adults, adolescents and children (with their parents)for psychological treatment and support.

Also, I only work face to face with children. However, with adolescents and adults I can work either face to face or long-distance by using video-conference (Zoom). It is additionally important to note that Working with children means that parents are involved in the treatment as well.

 

Who should seek help elsewhere?

If you are dealing with severe acute problems, preparing (self)destructive actions or you are in a psychotic phase please contact your GP/Family physician for a referral to more intensive mental care. Outside-in Psychological Practice Hekking has no facilities for urgent mental care.

Therapy modalities

Here you can find information about some techniques I often use

Brainspotting Therapy

Rianne Hekking is certified in this revolutionary new brain-based therapy

Brainspotting is a highly effective treatment of trauma, mood disorders, addictions, sports trauma, and creative performance expansion.

To effectively work through your trauma, you first have to identify it. Brainspotting can help you tap into sources of trauma and negativity so you can begin working to overcome specific sources of negative emotion.

‘Where you look affects how you feel!’

Brainspotting is an amazing tool that helps you gain access to your sub-cortex in order to process and release trauma.

David Grand, Ph.D (USA) developed Brainspotting in 2003, and it is spreading throughout the world now as a very effective treatment and coaching technique.

Brainspotting is a form of treatment that works by identifying, processing, and releasing core neurophysiological sources of a variety of emotional and physical challenges at a deep brain level. Simply put, Brainspotting suggests that the direction in which people look and the positioning of their eyes can affect how they feel.

During Brainspotting, therapists help people position their eyes in ways that enable them to get in touch with sources of negative emotion.

Therapists trained in Brainspotting strategically guide the eyes of people in therapy across their field of vision to find certain “Brainspots” where an eye position engages a traumatic memory or painful emotion. Brainspotting allows therapists to access emotions on a deeper level and target the physical effects of trauma.

Compassionate Inquiry

Rianne Hekking will probably be a certified CI-therapist in 2020

Using Compassionate Inquiry (CI), both the client and therapist unveil the level of consciousness, mental climate, hidden assumptions, implicit memories and body states that form the real message that words both express and conceal.

Through this work, clients can connect to the truth within themselves in the present moment, become free from self-generated suffering, and gain insight, clarity and choice in their behavior.

3-Dimensional Boundary Visualization (3-D BV)

Rianne Hekking is certified as a Boundary Based Awareness Counselor (BBAC) and works with 3-D boundary visualisation.
Boundary visualisation is a new and powerful therapy that makes you aware of your personal boundaries and how to protect your inner personal space.

 

This therapy modality is based on the Interpersonal Self Boundary Awareness model (SBA), developed by dr. Nick Blaser from Switzerland: Centre for applied Boundary Studies:

All of us possess an internal image of the boundary between us and the outside world, although it is not something of which we are generally aware.

We can externalize this unconscious picture and view it three-dimensionally by means of wooden blocks and figures (see photograph).

Using this constellation, we are able to see how we “stand in the world” and how open or closed we are to our surroundings. For that reason, it is also called ‘self-boundary awareness therapy’.

By means of such spatial representation (3-DBV) we can visualize old and more recent interpersonal dynamics and recognize and alter behavioral patterns. In this way, it is possible to forge a healthy self-boundary. Just as the old, unconscious image of “being in the world” shaped us for many years, the new picture, optimized for our current life situation, can have a very positive impact.

 

Inner child work

Rianne Hekking finished successfully advanced trainings of scheme therapy and had training in internal family systems therapy (IFT) and inner child therapy.

Relationships can be challenging. What makes them even more challenging is when our adult behaviors reflect the unmet needs we had as children. It is important to heal our past inner child wounds as it will probably have a (damaging) effect on the quality of our present-day relationships.

What is my Inner child?

The inner child encompasses the parts of our psyche that retain the qualities we all possessed as children. The joyful energies of creativity, curiosity, playfulness, and spontaneity are potent: they can mobilize a collapsed system and can be a catalyst in the healing process.

The Inner child work also describes parts of us that have been deeply wounded. Various incidents in our childhood, especially highly charged ones that left us hopeless, sad, angry, scarred and/or unsupported live unchanged in our ‘inner world’ and manifest themselves in our behavior.

Why does this happen?

At the time when a damaging incident during childhood occurred, our little systems were not developmentally equipped to process such a large charge, usually coming at us from an adult who had more power than us. We simply did not have the cognition to understand what was happening and often there was no supportive presence to explain it to us. So, the emotion was left unprocessed and frozen in our energy field. These early experiences leave “markers” in our body, mind, and spirit that show up in adulthood as thoughts, beliefs, images, energy tones and habits.

When energies are unresolved, they create a dynamic in the energy field.
The inner child in us unconsciously re-creates the childhood environment by projecting roles of significant others such as parents and siblings on current relationships. The unmet need of the wounded child wants to get met and re-creates the situation in the hopes of making that happen. For example, unresolved issues with a father or other authority figure will get projected onto our boss. And if we were hurt by excessive criticism by our parents, our inner child will scan faces, voices, behaviors, and gestures

looking for and therefore finding signs of criticism in the environment while overriding signs of love and support.

Contacting Our Inner Child

When we reconnect and resolve our childhood issues, we reprogram the negative conditioning of the past with something more positive.

Energies held in the system can be experienced and processed. The childlike qualities that were being held hostage become available to complete the developmental learning that did not take place in childhood. These learnings create the self-esteem and the safe boundaries that we need to be open, tolerant, non-judgmental, spontaneous, loving and cooperative rather than forever on guard.

One way to heal our younger selves is to access the “charged” childhood memory and re-experience it with what I call the Six C’s:

Contact, Compassion, Conversation, Cognition, Connection, Consolation

Testimonials

Working with the blocks and building my own ‘garden-fence’ showed me how I didn’t protect myself enough in real life. My garden was open to anyone and people didn’t even know If they were in my garden or outside. I used all my energy by being vigilant to what people were doing in my garden and I wasn’t aware of it. The wonderful thing was that when I closed my fence (with the blocks),.. read more

online client 2019, 21y, 3-DBV

Working with Rianne for the last 10 months has changed my life. As a survivor of severe childhood trauma, I have felt truly safe opening up with her in session. This is due to her ability to be present and nonjudgmental, guiding me but allowing me to find my own answers in the process. She is wise and has much experience to draw on. She offers powerful, effective tools for healing. As a therapist myself, she has helped me grow in my skill and understanding, making my work with my own clients more effective. She is a true professional and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

When I walked in, I was scared. I had never done this. What is she going to do? How can she help me? What if I cry? But she gave me a warm welcome. It was weird at first, but it helped so much. I can now relax and enjoy the things around me.

First, I want to say that I would recommend Brainspotting to everyone who is struggling with emotional pain or nerves or anything that can be seen as an obstacle. I am really glad I did this because I am less nervous now. What I liked the most about Brainspotting is that you don’t have to talk a lot (if you want you can but if you are not a talker then you don’t have to).

In the course of a few weeks and a variety of therapeutic tools, Rianne Hekking raised me out of a bad episode during my failure to cope after the death of my wife, and led me into a healthier and happier life. I found her to be a thoroughly caring person, and her therapeutic approach to be highly perceptive, inciteful, innovative, flexible, and effective.
