Healing Psyche

Using your mind to influence cancer

I wrote this book because I was astounded by the lack of people who knew about the true power of the mind to heal their cancer. I wanted to empower people to heal themselves

Rob A.A. van Overbruggen Ph.D., Bestselling Author of Healing Psyche & Unleash your Vitality

I know you are looking for other answers to combat diseases and you are aware that there are more ways to health than only mainstream medicine.

My name is Rob van Overbruggen Ph.D. and it is my mission to empower people to take control of their own health. My mission is to:


Many times in disease processes people feel :

That they know that mind influence a disease process but where do you start
Victimized by the medical establishment
Not knowing what to do yourself towards health
Frustrated by hearing stories that are not backed up by science, a bunch or collected personal stories that do not have a common thread
Or how to help others towards health and healing, but you do not know how to help them
When you recognize yourself in these questions, then I can help.

Since 1995 I am working intensively on the topic of the psychological influences on the self healing ability of people with cancer.
As a specialist in human emotions and how to release emotions and beliefs that bother you I can help you.There is only one more step to take and that is to start studying the role of the mind in the healing process. Either sign up for the free chapters…or get a copy of my book “Healing Psyche – Psychological Secrets for Effective Cancer Treatment” and get all the information immediately.

But do not trust my word on it. Read the testimonials of the other specialists. Like Dr Simonton, Dr NorthrupDr Dossey, Dr Gal… and many others

Take control of your own health and help people take control of theirs

Here is my gift to you, 5 chapters of my book Healing Psyche- Psychological Secrets for Effective Cancer Treatment


  • the difference between curing from cancer and healing from cancer
  • How the mind body connection is actually a fact and can be used to your advantage. (it is not a myth…it is really working… either use it to your advantage, or it uses you)
  • How events do not influence your stresslevel (in contrary to what people say)
  • How to deal with emotions that actually is beneficial to you

To feel empowered you need knowledge and insights.
So take action now

Healing Psyche – Psychological Secrets for Effective Cancer Treatment

For decades, the mainstream medical community has focused theirresearch and modalities on the use of surgery, drugs, and hormone therapy — with mixed results. Sadly, the incredible power of the human mind for helping to heal the body, was largelyoverlooked.
Fortunately, medical pioneers are making progress in rectifying this oversight. For instance, Dr. Rob van Overbruggen’s research — published in this extensive dissertation — has allowed him to identify many of the psychological patterns that influence the cancer process.

This valuable new book is the culmination of the author’s many years of extensive research, and his recognized expertise in Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), and working with timelines

Healing Psyche describes in detail the evolution of his new and innovative concepts in psychological cancer treatment, how they differ from the more traditional psychological modalities, and how they have been carefully developed into a complete and complementary approach to treating cancer, using the power of the human mind.


Family, friends and relatives will find valuable insights, tips and guidance.

rob i think there is much useful inform-Bernie Siegel MD-

rob i think there is much useful information in your book and it is a good resource for people who want to begin to learn about this field of work but there are also some things that make me very uncomfortable and that relates to one example being the simonton imagery with bullets, war, poison etc for many people that is totally ineffective because it creates conflict and empowers the enemy and when we are not killers it has adverse side effects we need training in communication”

Remark Rob van Overbruggen: Bernie you are right about the agressive imagery Simonton used to use. The use of more supportive imagery is one of the suggestions I make, and the type of imagery i use.

I strongly urge every NLP Practitioner -Richard Bolstad-

I strongly urge every NLP Practitioner who works with clients facing health issues to buy and read this book, and to buy a second copy to loan to their clients. I simply have never seen such a thorough and courageous explanation of this field. My recommendation is: Read the book now!

I have yet to get my hands on your book-Carl Simonton MD-

I have yet to get my hands on your book as Carl has loaned it out to many and several people have orded it on Amazon. He and Dr. Wirga are very impressed with it and have enjoyed it very much.

I am working for many years with cancer-Lothar Hirneise-

I am working for many years with cancer patients and over the years one get a feeling that our psyche plays a quite bigger role in cancer than most doctors knows. And it is no wonder that doctors know nothing about stress and cancer and psychological patterns and cancer – because they do not learn this at universities.
Even more the book from Dr. Rob van Overbruggen is so important because it is urgent needed that each therapist understands which role different psychological patterns are playing, not only for starting cancer, but also for surviving cancer.
I wish all oncologists would read this book

Rob van Overbruggen heeft met zijn Enge-Prof Dr Jan M. Keppel Hesselink-

Rob van Overbruggen heeft met zijn Engelstalige boek “Healing Psyche, Patterns and Structure of Complementary Psychological Cancer Treatment (CPCT)” een bijdrage geleverd aan de psycho-oncologie. Zijn boek is een literatuur overzicht en analyse en gaat over de invloed van gedrag, gedachtenpatronen, emoties en omgangsmethoden op kanker, goed onderbouwd met wetenschappelijke literatuur. De therapieen die aan de orde komen zijn vooral gericht op het verbeteren van het algemeen welbevinden van een kankerpatient.
Vanwege zijn zeer grondige zoektocht naar wetenschappelijk onderzoek over dit onderwerp, kan Rob Overbruggen gefundeerd aanbevelingen doen wat voor onderzoek er in de toekomst nodig is, om dit veld van de psycho-oncologie nog beter te doorgronden.

Kein ganzheitlicher Krebskongress kommt-Hendrik Treugut MD-

Kein ganzheitlicher Krebskongress kommt um die Feststellung herum: Krebsheilung ist nur von der Psyche aus möglich. Und wie geht das, was bietet man dem Patienten an? Unübersehbar ist bereits jetzt die Zahl der spirituellen, psychotherapeutischen, psychologischen, psychoonkologischen etc. etc. Therapieansätze, aber der Überblick geht verloren.
Hier bietet das Buch von Rob van Overbruggen eine Hilfe an, deren Bedeutung überhaupt nicht überschätzt werden kann, die einfach klingt und unendliche Mühe erforderte: er hat sich über alle Verfahren informiert, sie beschrieben, gesichtet, geordnet und z.T. beurteilt. Wer immer in der unübersehbaren Szene für sich oder seine Patienten einen therapeutischen Ansatzpunkt sucht (und wer kennt sich wirklich aus?), braucht dieses Buch.

Herr Rob van Overbruggen kenne ich seit-George Ivan Gal-

Herr Rob van Overbruggen kenne ich seit längeren, und hatte sehr nahen Kontakt im Bereich der klassischen Psycho-Onkologie und der META Medizin.
Mir ist bekannt dass Herr van Overbruggen sich täglich mit onkologischen Patienten beschäftigt, und bietet eine sehr komplette Betreuung für Krebskranke.
Ich habe ihm als sehr kompetenter, sorgfältiger und gewissenhafter Kollege kennengelernt, die in äußerst zuverlässiger und strukturierter Weise die medizinische und organisatorische Betreuung der Patienten durchführen konnte. Er hat alle ihm übertragenen Arbeiten in jeder Hinsicht zuverlässig und mit großem Verantwortungsgefühl zu meiner vollen Zufriedenheit durchgeführt.
Er ist immer in der Lage, eine gute Patienten-Beziehung aufzubauen und zeigte in der Zuwendung zum Kranken ein hohes Maß an menschlichem Mitgefühl und Verständnis für die Probleme der Patienten und seiner Angehörigen. Durch ihr umsichtiges, ausgeglichenes, stets offenes Wesen und ihr großes Engagement war sie insbesondere bei Patienten sehr geachtet und beliebt.
Er verfügt über fundierte Kenntnisse im gesamten Spektrum der klassischen und alternativen Medizin, sowie über ein intensives Einfühlungsvermögen im Umgang mit schwer und chronisch kranken Patienten (z. B. onkologische Patienten).
Ich werde ihm immer wieder zu Konsultationen bei heiklen Fälle in der Therapie, mit einschließen..
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
