In my search for a good therapist (and having spoken to several) I ended up with Jos. In the first session he immediately managed to get me thinking. Through proper questioning and clear observations. I felt understood, nice and safe. In a fairly short period of time Jos managed to bring out my unconscious motivations and sadness. This alone provided relief, where Jos also gave insight into possible connections between events without jumping to conclusions. This gave room for exploring the motivations and underlying grief (thank you!). I always enjoyed the conversations with Jos, he is very engaging with clear observations and nice humor. I look back with great joy to this period where Jos helped me discover the things that held me so tightly.
I found it special to experience, also how much was released and how it actually went by itself. I felt very good afterwards, as if a weight had been lifted from my shoulders. I look back on it with a good feeling!
Jos van Boxtel has helped me very much over time with my problems. I had been to several different therapists where unfortunately I could not progress. But with Jos I was able to make progress.
A few months ago I came to Jos with compulsive disorder or OCD. After many visits over the past years to different psychologists, psychiatrists and the use of medication, I could not find a way out within my problem. So this problem also formed a large part of my life, hindering me in my daily life. I simply could not live up to the ambitions I had because of this condition, making it a disturbing factor for me as a person. The choice to go to Jos has brought me many new insights, improving my quality of life.
I came to Jos with a recurring ‘life knot’ which had a great influence on my love relationships and my life. He was able to point out the right issues, make me aware of unconscious patterns and as a result my ‘life knot’ feels smaller and more manageable. I am even getting married to my girlfriend in the next year and that feels like a huge growth for me.
After several attempts to quit smoking, I heard through-via that a similarly down-to-earth girl like me had quit smoking with the help of Mindspring. Then I also contacted her and we had an intensive introductory meeting. Then had a one-week farewell tour, the cigarettes and I. On Thursday evening, June 11, at 6:50 p.m. with my friend in front of the door at Mindspring, we lit up the last one and smoked it up to the filter. I was quite skeptical and had my reservations but the session was successful and for that I am very grateful!
Actually, I had already given up. I felt miserable, wanted nothing more and despite the ‘help’ I had received before, there was no improvement in my self. In December I quit my studies because I couldn’t take it anymore (diagnosed by others, because say it yourself; with me with yourself everything always goes well and you don’t need help). After talking to the doctor and then to the psychologist, it turned out that my problem was the study. Since I had stopped studying, I thought, things would probably get better soon. Unfortunately, this was not the case and my visits to the psychologist did not help. A colleague started looking for a therapy that could help me. She came up with Mindpring and I decided to take the gamble. Wow! A whole new world really opened up for me at the intake. No matter how high I had built the wall for myself, Jos pierced through everything so easily. What was a relief for me is that it was not the study that caused me problem but just the drop. Within three sessions all my blockages were above water and I had tools I could work with. From the moment I walked out the door until today I feel happy, joyful and comfortable in my own skin. In September I will continue my studies and I can now say: I am looking forward to it!
From the first session with Jos, something special happened. I came to him because I didn’t feel at all comfortable in my skin, had all sorts of things to resolve that I couldn’t work out on my own. I was surprised by the speed with which depth was reached, the moments of acknowledgements about who I am, where I come from, with all the emotions involved: from laughing to crying. Thank you Jos
