Vanessa van Lelyveld

English speaking clinical psychologist offers support for adults, couples and adolescents by utilizing a variety of techniques tailor made according to each client’s personality, needs and goals. Mindfulness, meditation and Hypnotherapy also applied.

In today’s highly demanding life the most prevalent problems I see in my practice and help to address are anxiety, depression, stress, burnout, relationship issues - both personal and work related. I also address more clinical issues such as sleeping disorders, grief and loss, post partum depression, eating disorders and weight loss, to name just a few.

About me:

I am a clinical psychologist from South Africa and have moved to Luxembourg about 10 years ago. I have experience in clinical counseling environment, trauma counseling and private practice. Since moving to Luxembourg I have gained further experience in dealing with expats and their families, helping them to adapt to drastic life changes often within a highly stressful environment.


Because each individual is unique, I use a variety of techniques to adapt to each person’s personality style, needs and goals. Most commonly used are techniques borrowed from the Positive Psychology paradigm (health psychology), Cognitive Behavioral Technique (CBT) and most especially Mindfulness, Meditation and Hypnotherapy.
