"You are not alone": Open Discussion evening
On June 14th, a group of expats from the Hague and the surrounding area gathered to discuss how we feel about Loneliness.
In this monthly meeting we explored how we can feel less lonely and more connected with others, how we can break the vicious circle of loneliness, and if there is a part of loneliness that "is ok".
AntiLoneliness welcomes Master interns for the first time! (13/03/2018)
13 years ago I was starting my internship for my 1st Master in Psychology in Athens.
13 years later I am opening the AntiLoneliness' doors for the first time for students to do their internship in Clinical Psychology from Leiden University and from Utrecht University.
I cannot express how unbelievable and mind-blowing that feels for me. Thank you ladies for joining AntiLoneliness! I hope I will give you the most I can. #antiloneliness #myteamrocks (#im_getting_old)
Feel At Home Fair (the Hague)
So happy to be participating to the Hague biggest expat fair "Feel at Home Fair" (the picture says it all). I'm always excited to meet and talk to people and answer all possible questions on our counseling services and workshops. Until next time...
In collaboration with BLOOM - House of Health in the Hague, we were invited to organise and facilitate a workshop in Relationships and help individuals to recognise and to replace toxic patterns with healthy communication within their relationships.
Looking forward to the next one!
Adjusting to the needs of the practice for more space due to all the workshops, supports groups and meetings we have, we moved to a bigger space. And we love it: the view, the colours, the space.
You are more than welcome to visit us and ask your questions on our services!
We were excited that our workshop in Procrastination on 20/6/2017 was SOLD OUT and that all the participants found it very interesting. Thanks to Dagmar Hopf (www.sevenbirds.eu), who prepared the material and made an amazing presentation!
A new workgroup is about to start, "End Procrastination, Welcome Success" which aims in dealing with procrastination, time management, anxiety and productivity.

The Anti-Loneliness Project
The Manifesto of "Loneliness". :-)
Thank you, Andy, for giving me this opportunity to talk about my Project and about Loneliness and how expat life puts extra weight on it.
(Andy, by the way, has recently initiated a Podcast website called "Here in Holland" and at the website you can listen to many many interviews from interesting people around Holland and also how expats experience Dutch life).
Enjoy the interview, and please share your thoughts on the comment area.
It seems like a new, overwhelmingly obsessive trend; all we hear or read about is "How to be happy", "10 ways to be happy", "How to avoid people that are not happy", etc. But what is actually implied is "Try to be happy, because everyone else is happy, except you, and, actually: What's wrong with you?".
As an expat, you might struggle with things like loneliness and happiness. After all, you’re far away from your home country and family. Here are a few tips to help regain your inner peace!

While it may seem counter-intuitive due to the nice weather and being able to be outdoors, some people can suffer from an increased sense of loneliness during the summer, especially if you’re an expat far away from your home country and family.
Sometimes in the summer there is an unexpected wave of loneliness that can punch us in the face. It makes us feel awkward, a little bit embarrassed and maybe even a little bit scared of what will come next.

It was my honor to speak at the Women Economic Forum at 28th January in the Hague about Leadership and Empowerment. Specifically, I joined a panel together with three other professionals, Isabelle Goyon, Lisel Brunson and Theresa Randleman, and we discussed about how women can stop self-sabotaging their career, how they can stand up when life puts them down and how they can overcome feelings of loneliness when they are at leadership positions. Wonderful experience, amazing people to meet!
