“When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified; or when he or she is doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity, then understanding is called for. The gentle and sensitive companionship of an empathic stance… provides illumination and healing. In such situations deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another”, Carl Rogers.

Jacqueline de Goeij recovery coach and EMDR therapist

With many years of professional travel experience all over the world and familiarity with a great number of different cultures and traditions, I have created a safe and welcoming environment in the countryside of the Marche region in Italy for clients and families.

After graduating in Clinical Psychology both at the Tilburg University in the Netherlands and at the University of Urbino in Italy, I specialized in Client Centered Therapy by Carl Rogers at the Person Centered Approach Institute of Rome. With Jean Watson of the Toronto University I studied Emotion Focused Therapy. This particular kind of approach helps clients to experience their emotions in the safe setting of therapy so that, rather than avoiding or controlling their feelings, clients learn to use them as a guide to what is important or necessary in their lives. I also specialized in EMDR, certified by the European EMDR Association.

Carl Rogers teaches us that “people have their own resources for healing and personal growth”  introducing the concepts of congruence, empathic understanding, acceptance, and unconditional positive regard into the therapeutic environment to enhance the outcome for clients. With this in mind I help clients and families clients gain insight, recognize feelings and achieve self-acceptance and self actualization to realize their goals, wishes, and desires in life.

My areas of expertise are: substance and behavioural addictions (with a wide experience as a member of a multidisciplinary team in an international treatment center), mood disorders such as depression, anxiety disorders: panic attack, generalized anxiety, phobias, trauma and stress related disorders, psychosomatic disorders: chronic pain and fybromialgia. 

I am a multilingual psychotherapist and provide sessions in English, Italian, Dutch and German.




EMDR therapist

As an EMDR therapist I  treat  people who suffer from traumatic issues from their past, anxiety, depression, panic disorder, burnout, but also psychosomatic disorders such as chronic pain and fibromyalgia.

I also use specific protocols for people with substance and behavourial addiction problems to help them stay solid in their recovery, working with triggers, cravings and other problems, such as underlying trauma issues.

I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space where people can explore and work through their difficulties.

Arrangements can be made for private sober living as well.
