• Self-confidence VS self-worth: How do I believe in me again?

    After a long and painful divorce or breakup, it seems to be difficult to feel “good” about yourself. There are still, unanswered “whys”, and some guilt to process. However, feeling worthy is a completely different thing. Can you tell the difference? During our meeting we will talk not only about self-confidence, but also about self-worth. What are the thoughts that keep us low? How can we reverse to a more positive way of thinking? We will also focus on our self-talk and we will understand how our inner voice can transfer us from the scary bottoms to the delightful highs. We are looking forward to meeting you. For registration and for more information, contact us at [masked]. Looking forward to seeing you all. Please notice that the meeting will take place in the Hague and NOT in Haarlem. You are all welcome to join us there. Kind regards, Vassia Sarantopoulou Relationship Counselor-Psychotherapist AntiLoneliness www.antiloneliness.com

  • How to make the Right Decision

    Koninginnegracht

    “Sometimes you make the right decision and sometimes you make the decision right.” What should I do? How do I know that i chose the right thing? What if I regret it later? If I am not sure about my decision, that means that there is something wrong with that. Do these questions sound familiar? If yes, then this workshop is for you. Making up your mind about something, from small everyday things to big life decisions, can be tricky. Many people spend hours or days to make a decision and the reason is usually fear: “What if I regret it?” The place of uncertainty and indecision This feeling of trying so hard to predict the future, can bring hopelessness, anxiety and sometimes even depression. It is so exhausting to be certain of the outcome of every single decision. Spending all this energy in point systems and weighting the pros and cons every day surely holds you back from enjoying everyday activities or even from focusing on other matters like work, relationships or family. Besides, the constant preoccupation with the same dilemmas can have a great impact on your relationships (friends, partners, family, colleagues). You are caught up in discussing the same old things again and again which may make people around you feeling not helping enough and therefore distancing from you. But you are not alone in that. In this workshop you will gain confidence in your decisions. Together we will explore: The process of making a decision The ways we may sabotage the decision What makes us feeling stuck, trapped or afraid. The practical tools you need for stepping out of your comfort zone How to embrace and stand by YOUR own decision And most of all how to NEVER REGRET the decisions you made. Join us in this life-changing, mind-blowing workshop! We look forward to meeting you. The choice is yours. Kind regards, Vassia Sarantopoulou Counselor-Psychologist http://www.antiloneliness.com

  • Trust and Betrayal: How can I trust people again?

    Koninginnegracht

    "Every time I trust someone new, they end up reminding me why I shouldn't trust anyone at all. " “How can I trust anyone again? Ending up hurt is the only possible scenario I can think of..!” Trust is the most important ingredient of a relationship. With no trust, there is no real relationship. However, moving on after a hurtful experience like divorce, can be tricky. Let’s go back to the basics again. Together we will define our values about trust, betrayal and expectations from others. Building a new set of values and boundaries will make you feel strong to start exploring again in the outside world. We will make sure that you are safe and sound! For registration and for more information, contact us at [masked]. Looking forward to seeing you all. Please notice that the meeting will take place on February 10th at 19.00 in Leiden and NOT in Haarlem. You are all welcome to join us there.
