    Mindfulness training

    'Pay loving attention to yourself'

    We almost all have to deal with stress, fatigue, abdominal pain, worry, uncertainties, anxiety or an urge to (excessive) control. These complaints can get you in the way. Do you suffer from negative thoughts, emotional imbalance or lack of rest and energy? Then we advise you to follow a mindfulness training.


    What is Mindfulness?


    Mindfulness is a method that gives you more insight into your mental and emotional functioning and how you can deal with this in a conscious and friendly way. With a mindfulness training you become more aware of your inner world and functioning. You get insight into your thoughts, feelings, emotions and your physical sensations and learn to let go of what does not help you. A mindfulness training offers you the tools to deal consciously and self-reliantly with your inner world. You learn to know the cause of your complaints and to give it a friendly attention. In this way you can treat and reduce them yourself. This ensures more grip, stability and confidence.


    What can you expect?

    • During the personal mindfulness training you will gain insight into an obstructive pattern from which your complaints arise
    • You experience how you can use mindfulness as a practical and effective tool in your daily life to treat complaints in a targeted manner
    • You receive education about the working of your mind and learn to practice different mindfulness exercises
    • You learn to train attention at every moment of the day so that you can stay more present and bring more relaxation in your life
    • The contact with yourself will improve so that you learn to listen to your physical, mental and emotional needs
    • Through the training you become mentally and emotionally stronger and you get more grip on yourself
    • You learn to become the manager of your own (obstructive) thoughts
    • You learn to deal with (difficult) feelings, emotions and you develop (self) compassion
    • You get access to an online program where you can download mindfulness audio recordings

    This program is really something for you if ...

    • You need more attention for yourself
    • You want to understand your inner functioning and how you can improve this
    • You want to experience more grip and want to learn how to deal with thoughts and feelings

    Costs Mindfulness program


    The costs are 85 euros per session of 1.5 hours. The basic program consists of at least 5 sessions.


Food Mind Body is a practice for nutrition and dietary advice and offers guidance in changing your lifestyle. The practice is located in Amsterdam at various locations. The addresses of the locations can be found on our website  www.foodmindbody.nl.

Every year you are entitled to 3 hours of dietary advice. The reimbursement from the basic insurance (except for 'ketenzorg') is first covered by the 'eigen risico'. This means that you pay the first €385 over the whole year for health care yourself, and after that you get insured health care for free. Insured persons under the age of 18, don't have a premium for 'eigen risico', so therefore they come for free.

The advisory talks between you and the dietician are direct time. Indirect time is used for the individual dietary requirement. This includes preparing a dietary plan, calculating nutrition and associated advice. We also charge this indirect time as part of your treatment.
The time that is invoiced for the telephone consultations is per fifteen-minute units. The rounding takes place as follows; less than 7.5 minutes will not be invoiced, more than 7.5 minutes will be invoiced for a unit of 15 minutes.
If your insurance does not (or no longer) covers the costs of the treatment(s), the costs will be covered by you. For example when the maximum reimbursement has been reached or there is no additional insurance. 
When making an appointment we reserve a predetermined amount of time. The time applies per type of consultation and is listed on our website. Should the appointment unexpectedly end or last longer than planned, we will declare the agreed time. This does not apply to telephone consultations and the individual dietary requirement. Telephone consultations are invoiced per unit of 15 minutes, depending on the actual duration. The individual dietary requirement is part of the indirect time and therefore 45 minutes will be declared. This time can be adjusted as required in consultation and agreement with the treating dietician.
The duration and rates per type of consultation are listed on the website: www.foodmindbody.nl.
