Psychologist, psychotherapist
Collegiate number: CV13745 Alicante
Consultation hours: By appointment


I would like to introduce myself; my name is Rian van Rijsbergen. Since 2003 I have been working in Spain on the Costa Blanca. The Spanish Ministerio de Educación, Cultura y Deporte has approved my studies as Licenciada and Psicología. I am affiliated with several professional organizations including the Collegi Oficial de Psicólegs Comunitat Valencia, APHICE, EAP and FEAP Federación Española de Asociaciones de Psicoterapeutas. At the end of 2020 I successfully completed a two-year master’s degree in psychopathology at the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia in Madrid.

People seek help because they are sad, and their sadness is somehow not recognized by the environment. They feel alone, bad, and tired. They cannot release their emotions and prefer to keep them to themselves. Often, they do not even know why they feel that way or what causes it. In fact, after a while, they are no longer able to feel what is going on inside of them. It can take years and is extremely destructive to their lives. Usually hearing and listening to their grief is supportive and a relief for people. Attention, empathy, and confidentiality are therefore effective elements in a psychological and or psychotherapeutic treatment.

Consultations in Dutch, German, and Spanish.
