1. Individual therapy
Individual therapy is an option for you in many different phases in your life.
In The Netherlands having a coach is very common in your professional life.
We are all unique and so is our brain.
What is the MILS?
MILS (More Insight in Learning Strategies) assesses the learning preferences of a person. Drs. Marjolein van Bodegom invented the method and created the inventory. After many years of research and practice she realized that we are all unique and so is our brain. For some of us just looking at a picture (visual) can be enough for the information to be processed and ‘stay’ with us. Some others have the ability to process information through text (text processing), or through sharing information with others (learning together), or by hearing a tutor talk (acoustic), as well as while doing some physical movement (kinesthetic). Lastly, we also know that some people have difficulties memorizing information, when it is given to them piece-by-piece instead of the whole picture or the meaning behind the information given to them (context).
Finding out your own learning preferences can enhance your self-esteem and your schooling performance or your working performance.
What is the process?
MILS can be done by children of the age of 9 and above and by adults of all ages.
How can you or your child benefit from MILS?
As an adult you can also benefit from MILS in case you are in the schooling system yourself, as a tutor, teacher or as an adult student who needs to be able to more efficiently process new information.
MILS has been implemented in many schools in The Netherlands (primary, secondary and lately also at colleges) where the whole classroom was tested including the teaching staff. The aim for this is to give teachers insight into their own learning preferences so they understand that in the way they teach (using their own preferences) they do not teach for all children. And encourage them to try and broaden their teaching methods.
MILS can be done in English and Dutch. Greek speaking children and adults with a basic knowledge in English can do it as well. In that case the explanation of the results and the report can be given in Greek.
4. Online therapy
Online therapy is offered as an option in case the client:
It is important to note that online therapy is not appropriate for everyone and it is an option only when both parties, therapist and client, conclude that this is the last resource they have available. Physical presence is essential for the therapeutic relationship and the non-verbal and body language are important elements that we wish to observe and include to our work with our client.
