All Ears | Elena Riedel
Psychological Support and Therapy

+31 (0) 647036171


Dear reader,

My name is Elena. I am here to listen to you, listen closely, with full attention and without judgement. In other words, I’m all ears.

I am offering you a safe space in which your troubles – the easily accessed ones as well as the deeply buried ones – are allowed to surface and be dealt with in the manner that will best help you heal and progress.

Due to my training and previous positions in specialized mental healthcare institutions, my experience is most extensive in the field of substance use disorders and behavioural addiction, as well as in the area of body-related problems, such as negative body image/body experience, Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) and eating problems.

Further, I can help you with

  • Depression and/or anxiety
  • Sleeping problems
  • Spiritual crisis or questions of meaning
  • Loneliness, low self-esteem or relationship problems
  • Processing and integrating psychedelic experiences
  • PMS/PMDD/symptoms related to menstrual cycle
  • Questions related to sexuality
  • Maneuvering times of cha(lle)nge and difficult decisions.

In my contact with you, I draw on experience with various methods such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CGT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness Based Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.

I always work trauma-informed and with attention to the role of the body for our physical and mental well-being. For processing trauma, I like to work with Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET), Brief Eclectic Psychotherapy for PTSD (BEPP), and EMDR.

Upon request and when appropriate, I also use more alternative approaches such as modern Hypnotherapy and Breathwork.

All Ears is not about putting labels on a disorder you have. I work based on the belief that there is an innate healing wisdom in you (and everyone), and I am offering you my support in getting in touch with and strengthening that part of yourself.

I offer therapy in English, Dutch and German and I’ll do my best to help you in French if needed.

Where, How and When

The ‘where’ is flexible:

I am currently making use of two locations in Amsterdam (WG-Plein and in West), depending on your availability and that of the location. Taking the session outside into the fresh air is possible after consultation. If you live further away or prefer this for other reasons, we can meet online. Please do not hesitate to contact me about these options.

The ‘how’ is flexible:

Embracing a pay-as-you-can approach, I aim to support those who are struggling financially with the help of those who have better means. This means that depending on your current situation you can choose to pay € 75, € 95 or € 115 for your session (60 min). An orientation (video)call of ~30 min is always free of charge. The total amount of sessions depends on your needs and wishes. We will discuss the estimated number of sessions needed in the beginning. My ambition is always to help you in as many sessions as necessary but as few sessions as possible.

The ‘When’ Is Flexible:​

There is currently no waiting time. Upon request, I also offer sessions in the evening hours and on weekends.

Privacy & Confidentiality

Professional secrecy:

Everything you discuss with me is covered by professional secrecy. There will be no feedback to third parties, unless you request it. If feedback to a third party (e.g. GP, occupational health and safety service, other mental health institution) is desired, I will always discuss the information with you in detail before sharing it.
