About me

Marta Noordhoek

My name is Marta Noordhoek. I graduated from the Jagiellonian University in 2001 with a Master’s degree in Psychology. My experience and background as a therapist include: Several years training as psychotherapist in Krakow Psychodynamic Centre, postgraduate studies in Therapy Through Art at University of Wroclaw, Mentalization Based Therapy at The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families.

I have been working in the field of psychotherapy, diagnostics, and counselling since 2002. I worked in the Military Hospital in Wroclaw, a number of outpatient psychiatric clinics and a privately-owned practice. Since 2009 I have been living in Flanders and working in a psychotherapy centre in Brussels. My work is subject to a continuous and individual supervision.

In 2009 my title as a psychotherapist was recognized by the Belgian Commission of Psychologists. (nr. 772208907). I am a member of the Polish Society of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Belgian Federation of Psychologists (BFP) and Flemish Association of Clinical Psychologists (VVKP). Being a member of these organizations I am held up to the standards of the code of ethics of psychologists and psychotherapists.

Methods of practice

I use psychodynamic methods in my therapy which are based on the psychoanalytical paradigm. Psychodynamic therapy includes a broad spectrum of mental health disorders (such as mood disorders, anxiety, personality and behavioral disorders, difficulties in building and sustaining long term relationships).

Psychotherapeutic relationship which is built and discussed during therapy allows to correct mechanisms that we replicate with people who are important in our lives (partners, children, friends) and “objects” (work, goals, health). Better self-awareness enables the correction of coping mechanisms in favour of more adaptable ones and promotes self- care.

My therapy is rooted in the respect of the decisions, values and symptoms presented by an individual. The form of therapy (maintenance or expressive therapy, long or short term therapy) and the techniques used depend on the individual needs of the patient.

The first three sessions are devoted to building rapport and establishing realistic goals and outlining an optimal treatment plan.

I also use MBT and TFP methods in my therapy.

Sessions are scheduled regularly, once or twice a week, for 45 minutes.
Cancellations require 48 hours notice, otherwise sessions will be charged in full.
