We currently do not schedule appointments with Renee due to pregnancy.
Do you have (chronic) physical complaints that just won’t go away? For example fatigue, poor sleep, feeling restless, chronic pelvic or abdominal pain, complaints related to menstruation, etc. Questions about sexuality or challenges you experience in a sexual relationship? You’re not the only one…
Combining knowledge and strength is extremely valuable in the search for answers. That is why I am so happy to come and work at holistic practice Den Hoek as of September 2020. Here I have the opportunity to work closely with special, dedicated professionals who all have the same goal, which is to ensure that you and your body can function optimally.
During my studies and first years of work I became convinced that, as a doctor, I still have a lot to learn when it comes to the development of disease and the self-healing capacity of the body. In case of illness and complaints, we mainly focus on symptom control instead of looking for the underlying cause and tackling it. When and what caused an imbalance? And what can we do to support the body in such a way that it can function optimally again and we remain healthy? The answers to these questions are different for everyone. This form of medicine is tailor-made and in my opinion most successful at the interface of Western and Eastern visions.
Fortunately, there is more and more scientific research that supports this. In my work I combine mind-body medicine with intuitive working: scientific knowledge and intuition come together. Listening without judgment and making connections by making a timeline in order to get to the root of the problem are important cornerstones.
Both young people and (young) adults are welcome with me. I supplement my background as a doctor and sexologist with various treatment methods in which I received additional training, such as Body-oriented Mentalization, Mindfulness and meditation. Diet and lifestyle are also central.
In September 2020 I will start the EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) therapist training. The effect and end goal of EFT is to neutralize the emotional charge of traumatic events and memories by disconnecting the stress response. In this way, the emotional charge is converted into a reaction that has little or no emotion, but which, on the contrary, arouses a neutral or even positive memory / attitude. The disconnection of that stress response is extremely important because a chronically activated stress system, as many of us have, disrupts the optimal functioning of our immune, digestive and hormonal system and is therefore an important cause for all kinds of chronic physical complaints.
In 2017 I graduated as a doctor and in recent years I have gained work experience in the sexology and psychosomatic gynecology department of the Amsterdam UMC, the Lievegoed clinic and at Altrecht Psychosomatics ‘De Eikenboom’ in Zeist. De Eikenboom specializes in the treatment of people who have been struggling for years with (serious) physical complaints for which doctors can find no (or insufficient) physical cause.
In addition to my work at Den Hoek, I currently work as a physician-sexologist at GGZ Scharwachter, I am starting up my own practice ‘Haseya’ and I teach as a senior lecturer of the AS-ASH training at the RINO in Utrecht and Amsterdam.
