Counseling for expats living in the Netherlands
I am a Hungarian woman, expat mother myself, living in the Netherlands. As a psychologist, I support internationals through their challenges of living in a foreign country so that they can feel at home abroad, get the best out of themselves and live a fulfilled life.
Do you feel stuck and struggling? Contact me if you need support and inspiration. I’ll listen to you carefully and encourage you to move forward on the path you really desire.
My mission is to help my clients discover their own way of finding their mental wellbeing. During the course of our conversations, therefore, besides talking about your challenges and difficulties, we’ll also explore your personal resources and potentials. It is our goal to get your emotional balance back, accept the unchangeable and above all make more room for you to learn and grow.
“The act of revealing oneself fully to another and still being accepted may be the major vehicle of therapeutic help.”
How can I help you?
I offer support in a number of areas, like:
Challenges of living abroad (cultural differences, homesickness, cultural identity, intercultural transitions, change and adjustment issues), support during pregnancy and after giving birth, new role as a mother, becoming a family, parenting abroad/across cultures,
work-life balance, personal development, grief and other transitions/difficulties in your life guidance.
Looking forward to meeting you in my practice online and/or in Utrecht

Walk and talk therapy
Walk-and-talk is a form of counseling while walking outdoors. I offer walk-and-talk sessions as an optional treatment modality. Walking sessions typically take place along Haarzuilens National Park and Máximapark.
I have over 10 years of experience in working with clients in individual and group setting. Before coming to the Netherlands, I lived and worked in the capital of Hungary, Budapest. I graduated as a psychologist in 2009 at the University of ELTE on counseling specialization, then I followed doctoral studies and got engaged with happiness research. As a student I lived in Spain for one and a half years working with immigrants by a NGO. Later, during my doctoral studies I returned to Spain and helped international students at the Student Counseling Center of the University of Cádiz. This experience opened up my mind to the challenges, complexity and the beauty of multicultural living. Between 2009 and 2015 I worked as a lecturer at the University of ELTE, besides I had a private practice and conducted several courses and workshops for universities, companies and NGO-s in intercultural communication and adjustment, personal development, carrier and talent management and stress management topics. I moved to the Netherlands in 2015 and I have been living for some years with my husband and little son in Maarssen. I opened my practice for expats in 2016 in Utrecht.
We started our conversations with Virág a couple of years after I had moved to the Netherlands. We connected at once: she understood my problems and guided me carefully to their possible roots step by step. I met her in an intensive period at the best time possible. At first she opened my eyes in several areas with her questions, suggestions and recommendations for reading, then she helped me to reduce my anxiety and find my place in my new period of life in the Netherlands.
