Expat Psychologist

Ramo de Boer – Coach, Therapist and Trainer

ramoMy approach is warm and direct, experiential and process-oriented with emphasis on alert presence in the here-and-now. Using a simple and effective model together we make a hypothesis about the underlying cause of your experiences and behavior in the current situation.

I help you with training your perception (awareness), testing the hypothesis and give short assigments so that you can implement your insights in your daily (work) life and research. The goal is to get more insight through improved perception in your part in the outcome of situations, and to allow you to adapt your behavior and increase the quality of the result for you and the others.

In addition to Western philosophy, psychology and Gestalt Therapy I draw from Buddhist psychology with its wealth of techniques and practical insights to apply in daily life. It is aimed to train your mind to enable the development of our wisdom and compassion into a daily habit. The vision that inspires me most is the non-dualistic. We find this in essence reflected in traditions like the Tibetan- and Zen Buddhism, Taoism and Advaita Vedanta. It is based on the inextricable interconnectedness of everything, and the importance of understanding the interaction of ourselves with our surroundings.
