Welcome to the Web site of the private practice for learning and life problems in Hengelo, Holland. When everything is going well one enjoys living. Learning has to be enjoyed, so that a child can be happy at school. If this is not the case, it is time to contact me. Learning problems can be tackled, so that a child can be happy at school and can achieve the best results according to his capabilities. This practice offers help if you want to get more out of life or when you have the feeling you do not enjoy life enough.
Especially for expatriates, my practice offers help for those who experience adjustment problems in Dutch society. Examples of many psychological problems and complaints are depression, burnout, hypersensitivity, insomnia, fears, phobias and traumas. Examples of learning problems are, fear of failure, fear of speaking in public, examination fear and dyslexia. cognitive behavioural therapy and EMDR are used in the treatment.
Primary mental health care (in Dutch: Generalistische Basis GGZ) for people from 18 years and older is incorporated in the standard package of the Dutch health care insurance. From the 1st of January 2015 the primary mental health care for children and youngsters till 18 years has been withdrawn from the Dutch health insurance and has been transferred to the local councils. I have decided not to conclude a contract with the local coucils in Twente. This means that the private practise tariff applies for children an youngsters.The practice has concluded a contract with nearly all health care insurers.
The practice is run by Drs. Mrs. Robin Wegdam. Adults, young adults and children are welcome. In addition to my registration as a health care psychologist (GZ psycholoog) I am a registered European EMDR practitioner. I am also a member of the Dutch Psychological Association (Nederlands Instituut van Psychologen).
The rest of this site contains more information about my background and work as a licensed psychologist.
