Laura Thyssen

For couples, family and/or individual counseling.

Her interest for the connection between people, their network and the social-cultural environment brought her towards the study of clinical psychology and engaging a family and systemic therapy training.
In her personal life as well in her professional career she always had contact with people from all over societies diverse backgrounds. On their turn they keep sharpening her sensitivity for it.

Next to the practice, she also works in Brussels as a psycho-social counselor for supervised visits to re-enforce parent and child-bounding after a period without contact. Usually after a difficult divorce or intervention by welfare services. Next of kin, friends and (family)culture play, just as much an important role in all of it.

All these factors makes her very driven to cultivate her cultural sensitivity, so she can keep bettering herself to customize the counseling sessions.
