About me – psychologist and trainer Laetitia Quibus – Brussels
I work as a clinical psychologist and give trainings in soft skills in organizations from different sectors (insurance, medical, …). I also organize workshops about different themes. I work with (young) adults from 16 years on. When I treat adolescents or when the problem is related to a relationship, we can choose to include the parents or (a) significant other(s) in one or more sessions. Besides the treatment of ‘classical’ psychological cognitive, emotional and behavioral problems, I specialized into the treatment of people who:
- Suffer from stress or a burnout
- Suffer from anxiety or panic sensations
- Want to learn how to deal with hypersensitivity
- Suffer from negative mood or depression
- Want to develop a healthy lifestyle
My approach in therapy is holistic; I use techniques and tools from different schools of psychology. I have a Masters’ degree in biological psychology, the study of which has given me an excellent understanding of brain functioning, cognitive and learning processes. The brain is malleable and I teach people how to positively influence pre-existing unhelpful neural connections by giving them the tools for behavioral changes and to obtain more life satisfaction in general.
I also specialized in mindfulness, meditation and relaxation techniques. Every day, new scientific research shows us the benefits of meditation on our resilience towards stressful life events and on neural plasticity. Some of my patients decide to include meditation or mindfulness during sessions, and we can do that for one minute or almost an hour if needed/desired. I also offer individual meditation training, without therapy.
My style as therapist is quite (inter)active and coaching, my goal is not to keep you in therapy for years, but to achieve the best result in the shortest period. Together we can elaborate a ‘toolbox’ with techniques and methods you’ll be able to use during the difficult moments that are part of every life.
I am trilingual English, French and Dutch and offer therapy in the three languages. I also offer meditation training and therapy sessions at peoples’ house; the price depends on the distance to one of the places I work in.
