Quotes from the reviews on ZorgkaartNederland

"I used to panic at the thought of coming into contact with needles or when someone mentioned it. Now the fear when confronted with this is completely gone."

"During the treatment, there were warm people around me in a very nice environment. There was attention and compassion. Great women"

"I am very satisfied with the contact and the very clear explanation. I had a terrible fear of heights for 48 years and got rid of it in 1 treatment. What I do notice is that after such a long time my memory is still afraid of heights and that I must dare to do. "

"Very satisfied with the information in advance. Reception, preparation, the treatment itself and the follow-up process were also experienced as very pleasant and professional. Can Kindt Clinics recommend to everyone. My limiting fear of driving was overcome by these toppers!"

Experiences of our clients

Bonita van Lier - Fear of snakes

“I have guided myself very well from the first moment of contact and therefore felt at ease. The treatment itself (exposure) was tough, but I felt safe with all the supervisors (Emma, ​​Renée, Maartje). Also important: everyone was very involved and sympathetic!

Thank you very much for all the good care. You have set me free from something that I have struggled with for a lifetime. Being able to hold a snake has given my self-confidence a huge boost. My Facebook post about this treatment, including video, has been viewed 337 times, liked 84 times and has generated many positive reactions and recognition. I am clearly not alone in experiencing a phobia. “

"You set me free from something that I struggled with for a lifetime."

Nancy van Roij - Fear of spiders

I found the process for the treatment (already from registration) very stressful. It was therefore nice that the treatment could be scheduled at very short notice. I really liked the contact with and guidance by Kindt clinics.

The treatment itself was actually not that bad for me. On the test day I found it difficult to experience whether the treatment had worked. I liked that enough time was taken for this.

I still find it hard to believe that the fear that I had had for 40 years and that I actually adjusted my life to is gone within one day. After the treatment it took me a few weeks to really believe it. It is now special to notice that I no longer have any fear in situations that I have always avoided. Now I really have the confidence that the fear is gone.

I am very grateful that this method is now available to everyone. ”

"Now I really have the confidence that the fear is gone."

Gwen - Fear of spiders

“I've had a spider phobia for as long as I can remember and as I got older, my reaction seemed to get worse too - from screaming and fleeing to crying and hyperventilating when confronted. Although it was hard to imagine that this treatment, which is quite short, would help me get rid of my anxiety, it was precisely the short duration that appealed to me.

"That I am now even looking forward to encountering a spider to 'practice' with picking up and bringing it out, I never dared to dream in advance"


Ricardo Schoonheim - Fear of spiders

“Very successful! Clear instructions / explanations and great therapists who guided me well during the treatment! Thank you so much for having been given the opportunity to undergo this treatment! ”

Dinah Siebers - Fear of dogs

Of course I did not like the “exposure part” with the dog, but the treatment around it was made as comfortable as possible; The room was very calming, they told exactly what was going to happen and how it works and I enjoyed talking to Maartje and Merel, which was distracting. Thank you so much!!

What could be better? I would not change anything in the treatment process. Perhaps an idea to put the videos that are on youtube (more prominent) on the website. They were the deciding factor for me to do this treatment and were also valuable to remember during the treatment. ”

"The videos on YouTube ... were the deciding factor for me"

Dinah Siebers

Mirjam Kannegieter-Schuur - Fear of chickens

“I was rather skeptical beforehand, but afterwards it was really unimaginable that it really worked and worked. Merel and Maartje were and are really TOP PERS. Merel with the treatment and Maartje with the preparation, welcome and aftercare. A great team together. ”

"In retrospect it is really unimaginable that it really worked out"

Mirjam Kannegieter - Shed

Anna - (Fear of) panic

“After the treatment I was really exhausted, the confrontation with my fear was like climbing the Himalayas but absolutely worth it! A few days later I had a party on a boat, with many people in a relatively small space, small toilet etc… ”

"So special to miss the fear because it was always with me"


John - Fear of heights

“I would recommend Kindt Clinics, and their Memrec method, to anyone who has an anxiety suitable for treatment. It was one, intensive but short exposure, and my fear of heights has been cured. ”

Katelin - Fear of blood

“My experience was good, the treatment itself was very stressful but well worth it. What could be better: a little in the communication, an email from me was misunderstood. However, this did not lead to any relevant problems. "

Vivian - Fear of spiders

Positive. Living room atmosphere. Chill. Space to show your fear. Merel empathizes with the patient. You have to because you have to trust her. In those 2 days I felt very emotionally involved with her. All logical. And great that photos are taken. Otherwise you won't believe it later. And neither do other people (those who know how scared you were).

What could be better? A kind of withdrawal after the 2 intensive days. Fortunately, Maartje called me over a week later to see how things were going. You feel euphoric and want to share that. Preferably with someone who was there.

I want to thank Merel for her patience and understanding. And clear and directive communication. And Maartje too, we also laughed (even on day 1).

"Great that pictures are taken. Otherwise you won't believe it later. And neither will other people (those who know how scared you were)"


Denise - Fear of spiders

“I got to a point where I realized I no longer wanted to be led by my fear of spiders. When I looked at it 'rationally' that fear was really ridiculous and too far out of hand anyway. Via Google I came across Kindt Clinics and I read that you could get rid of your anxiety with 1 treatment. That appealed to me: bring it on, I thought! ...

"It was a bizarre sensation to work with that same spider and then suddenly feel no fear response at all in your body."


Nico - Fear of spiders

In one word “great”. Immediately forwarded a colleague and he was also treated successfully. ”

Tanja de Vries - Fear of toads

"Successful. Very positive. Was taken seriously and guided very empathically. But also well stimulated to enter into confrontation. ”

Roos - Fear of dogs

“Special. on the day of the treatment I really plunged into my fear. My heartbeat was really in my throat, and I felt tension everywhere. Then the pill, and I adhered to the guidelines. I really didn't know what to expect from the test, but when I came in and was confronted with the dog again it was so different. I felt the tension that I felt during the treatment and actually all my life was completely gone. As if nothing had ever happened ...

And during confrontations with other dogs it also went very well. I dare to pet them, let them lick my hand, let them run around me. Only barking scares me a bit, but not so much that I want to run away. ”

"As if nothing had ever happened ..."


Karin West - Fear of spiders

Very good experience. Fine guidance. Even though it was very scary to be confronted with my fear, I felt I was in good hands.

I can really recommend this to everyone. I had no idea how much of an impact my fear of spiders had on my daily activities. Now that it's gone, I feel that I really get into a car without stress, walk through a garden, move a box, clean the windowsill. Not only the fear and fear of spiders is gone, but also the constant being on my guard. I am much more relaxed.

Magda Dingemanse - Fear of heights

More reviews of the treatment

"Great. Clear communication, fast response and good explanation of the treatment. It is also very nice that the treatment could be planned in the short term. Point for improvement: at locations other than Amsterdam."

Sandra - Fear of heights / fear of falling

"Well, my fear of heights is less present at home. I have not had any altitude experiences yet (high hotels or the like) I am curious how this goes."

Anonymous - Fear of heights

"Positive. Good preparation through the intake interview. In retrospect, it was also good that I was not informed in advance about the entire treatment; what would it look like exactly."

Warsha - Fear of cats

"I was warmly welcomed, Maartje and Emma are very sweet and compassionate. I am very grateful."

Eva Stam - Spider phobia

Good. It was fast and direct. In the conversation before, it was clearly stated what to expect from the results. Questions were answered quickly and completely and communication was easy. The result is the most important and this was exactly as expected. "

Anonymous - Injection phobia

"Super nice and good experience with Maartje and Merel. From peace and understanding."

Riekie Aarts - Fear of mice

"Super team Maartje and Merel"

Elien - Fear of dogs

"Very positive. Great atmosphere, professional treatment, and it had an effect! Thanks, thanks, thanks, thanks! I can't believe I've gotten rid of my fear after all these years."

Marike Simons - Fear of spiders

"I had a very positive experience at Kindt Clinics. By going to Kindt Clinics I got rid of my (51 years) long fear of rats. Kindness, commitment, expertise and results are words that best sum up my treatment. I actually have no specific points for improvement, but if I do have to mention something, there may be a little more attention for the impact that the treatment has during the first weeks afterwards.For example, I was total-loss the first week after my treatment and you ask often ask yourself: how would it go if the first confrontation "in real life" will be there ..... You are still unsure about that. But again, that would be the finishing touch, it was perfect. I had a very positive experience prior to the treatment. The email correspondence was pleasant, the questions I had were answered quickly and properly and the intake interview was very good to have. I had the intake interview in d he clinic in Amsterdam. I would recommend that over an intake interview via face-time. I think you can get closer to your emotions "face to face". "

Tineke - Fear of rats

"Very positive: during the intake it was carefully checked what exactly my phobia is, under which circumstances it is most severe. During the treatment I was pushed in a good way to find the limit. The personal approach made me feel all the hesitation. let go. "

Han - Fear of heights

"In one word: Fantastic !! Good guidance and understanding. Relieved of my fear in a very short time. This is a must for anyone who suffers from fear of spiders."

Celeste de Boer - Fear of spiders

"It was an intense treatment, but also very effective. The guidance was pleasant and suited me well as a person. Only to reach an appointment was a bit of a puzzle ... that could have been more efficient."

Mi Sun van der Mannen - Fear of popping

"My experience at Kindt Clinics is very good. I was helped by the therapists. It was difficult to confront, but I am very happy that I did. I can still pass out, but I now know about this. a calm way to deal with it. The fear of needles is almost gone. "

Inge - Fear of needles

"Very positive. The sessions are tough, but the guidance is great and the result is very good. I am very happy with the result and proud of what I have done together with Kindt Clinics."

Bart - Fear of heights

"Positive, very kind and very caring. I felt taken very seriously and in a safe environment. Thanks for the therapy, it helped me very well."

Hanny - Phobia of needles and injections

"Treatment (confrontation) was very intense. The counseling was great. Anxiety has decreased but has not completely disappeared."

Anonymous - Fear of mice

"Professional, empathetic, effective and efficient."

Ben de Veth - Fear of heights

"Very positive, kind and understanding therapists. Appointments are well kept. I am very satisfied, I have no negative points, keep it up! In the meantime I am very happy because my fear of dogs has been overcome so far."

Joyce - Phobia of dogs

I really liked the treatment process. Everyone thought very much and everything was done to create a good 'fear scenario'. I also thought it was bizarre to notice how much easier the situation was the day after the propanol pill. I was less nervous beforehand and there was little fear in this situation either. The treatment is difficult for people with social anxiety. My fear of the situation we had looked up has diminished in my opinion. But an extreme disaster scenario is very difficult to look up, because the fear often happens spontaneously and is difficult to evoke in a setting that has been planned in advance. It would be even scarier if things happened or were said unexpectedly that you don't like.

Anonymous - Fear of blushing

What wonderful days I have had. Little by little I start to realize how much impact the fear has had on my life. The fear was mainly expressed in the car, but I think the fear of going 'out' was also woven into many small other things. Maartje and Merel are skilled people who have a to the point method that is confrontational, but if you have the guts to really go for it, it is groundbreaking. What could be better? A little more attention to aftercare. It is so bizarre how your own ideas have to adapt to your 'new' ability and that your thoughts can get in your way. The only remedy is to keep surprising yourself, but that is quite intensive and exciting. Keep up the good work beautiful people!

Louise Niemeijer - Fear of driving

"Perfect! Great people and very professional. Can recommend it to everyone! My severe fear of driving has been treated perfectly! Great that I have my sense of freedom back! I recommend it to everyone!"

"My experience was good. I experienced the environment and guidance as pleasant. It had an effect for swallowing pills and gagging"

Thomas - Emetophobia

"A professional team, warm and cordial in a very pleasant, almost homely space. I felt at ease with these people. A nice team that guides you, provides aftercare and is also very involved with you as a person. Made me feel safe . "

Anonymous - Fear of blood tests

"Despite the fact that the treatment is not pleasant, everything that is arranged around it is very pleasant. Personal attention, time, effort, etc. etc." What is great is that you can go so quickly, so you do not have to wait for weeks. "

Judith - Spider phobia

"With cautious certainty, 7 weeks after my treatment, I dare to say that I have been relieved of my phobia. A phobia of which I previously thought I would never be relieved of it and had a very disabling effect. The treatment is short-term and intensive and exciting, I was very nervous! Maartje and Merel have provided a safe setting for the therapy ... After the treatment I feel calmer and I have gained a lot of time that I no longer spend on avoidance and control behavior. I still have after 7 weeks the fear of the fear of a relapse. But I hope that will wear off. "

Sonja - Fear of silverfish

"Family and friends are incredibly enthusiastic about my bizarre and fast" cure ". I could hardly believe it myself, but the videos and photos remind me that it is really true. I am going through life a lot more relaxed now because I no longer fear losing control when I see a spider. I have already encouraged and recommended many people in my area to visit the website and / or sign up. "

Miel - Fear of spiders

"Still can hardly believe it. It has really changed my life for the better. No longer afraid to be at home alone, walk barefoot, no longer be on my guard all the time. When I tell others, I also sense disbelief. But it really is! "

Judith Witteveen - Spider phobia

"Great! Nice people, beautiful relaxing space and get rid of my 2-year-old phobia in 43 times !! I never dared to dream that. And also reimbursed by the insurance. I can really say that I have my life back. Just on path without thinking about whether there are wasps. Can go anywhere. And be an example for my children again! "

Angela - Wasp phobia

"I consider it successful, but there still needs to be a lot of practice and getting used to the level that I would like to achieve. I was very professional and friendly, helped by a well-prepared team with a lot of personal attention. I felt taken seriously. and felt that we were working together as a team to fix the problem. "

Anonymous - Urination anxiety

"Passed? Probably! Very pleasant and professional."

Leon Stedehouder - Complicated fear of heights

"Perfect, guidance was great. Unconstrained and could be myself, so I felt no shame. Very pleasant. My thanks are very big! I can enjoy a wonderful holiday at the campsite with our children and wasps :)"

Nienke - Fear of wasps

"Excellent guidance from empathetic and compassionate therapists. After just two days of treatment, my spider phobia has disappeared. I have had no more nightmares and the first spider I saw after the therapy did not cause panic anymore. It's fantastic!"

Anonymous - Fear of spiders

"Recently treated but I notice that I have not had any more panic attacks, I still have a lot of fear of the fear, but I have to get started with this myself. My experience was very good, clear explanations and great guidance. The location is also very pleasant. It was a special experience, especially when you come back on the 2nd day and there is no panic attack when you expect it as on day 1. "

Tamara - Fear of driving

"How was my experience at Kindt Clinics? Nice, apart from the fact that I had to face my fear of death."

Gerrie - Fear of dogs

"I loved the treatment! I am very happy with it. My fear has gone, and now I feel like I am no longer trapped in my fear."

Veronica Alves - Fear of spiders

"My experience is great! The contact by email and the intake interview via Skype with Maartje. Good information on the website and of course the fact that after 48 years I got rid of my fear of heights. I am very satisfied with the guidance, the contact and of course the treatment. Am very positive about it and tell everyone about it. Even pass it to the doctor. A very effective way to get rid of my very bad fear of heights for good and in a short time. Too bad that this method was not done decades earlier there was."

Eugenie - Fear of heights

"Fantastic! A lot of understanding, peace and patience. It was very cold in the room after the treatment. That made it a bit difficult to relax."

Corine - Spider phobia

It was a special experience. Was put at ease and went through everything. Quiet, beautiful location fully equipped. Nice and knowledgeable employees. Thank you very much !! I go on a world trip with a good feeling, knowing that I can do it: encounter a spider without excessive fear! "

Marjolein - Spider phobia

Maartje and Merel are warm and very involved with their patients. They pulled out all the stops to help me. Only this treatment for emetophobia is not yet completely suitable. I am convinced that it will work well for other phobias. Unfortunately, the emetophobia is difficult to combat from a practical point of view because it is physically too heavy. "

Anonymous - Emetophobia (fear of vomiting)

"Very good. Even if the result would have been worse. The fear has gone from" obstructing "to" vague ". From a 9 to a 2 or 3. The disgust has remained and the fear is still there (although greatly reduced), but how easily I pick up the situation after I see spin and how quickly I am relaxed again has improved 100%. What could be better: Larger range of spin type, but I understood that is already being worked on. settlement in the east of the country! "
