About Me – English speaking international therapist

I’m Rita Dekšnytė, an international psychologist and therapist based in the Netherlands. I use compassion-focused therapy, mindfulness and acceptance approaches to help my clients navigate mental health struggles, improve wellbeing and performance. At the heart of my practice at Tiptoe We Grow there is a universal wish to reduce suffering and help people flourish in their lives. I speak English and Lithuanian and am available for online individual therapy sessions, consultations and group training.


I have trained in Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and am currently training in Cognitive Behavioural therapy (CBT). I am a certified mindfulness and compassion trainer with Mindfulness Association (United Kingdom) and a certified yoga instructor. I hold an MSc in Sport and Exercise Psychology from the University of Jyväskylä (Finland) and an MSc in Diagnostics and Interventions from the University of Leipzig (Germany).

Is it for me?

  • Focus on what really matters
  • Manage energy and motivation levels
