In individual psychotherapy we work together on your treatment goals by trying to understand psychological problems against the background of your youth, personality style and living environment, and related underlying conflicts. This make it possible to change your behavior. Individual psychotherapy helps to reduce psychological problems and make them more manageable.
In individual trauma treatment we try to process the impact of emotional or shocking events with e.g. EMDR, to enable your post-traumatic stress problems diminish or disappear. EMDR is a protocol-based psychotherapy that helps to reduce the inner interconnectedness of memories of the trauma, negative thoughts and physical tensions.
Currently there is no waiting time.
As long as you and I do not suffer from a cold and take all the precautions advised by the RIVM, our appointments can proceed. There is also the possibility of talking to each other through a secure video connection, should you have complaints but feeling well enough to make an appointment. Let me know in time via email if you want to make use of a video appointment. If you have to cancel the appointment completely, please let me know at least 48 hours in advance.
Rates and Fees
All offered psychotherapy for people above 17 years old is included in the basic insurance of the Dutch Healthcare Insurance Act. The psychotherapy is settled by means of a Diagnosis Treatment Combination (DBC), the rates of which are determined each year by the National Healthcare Authority (NZa). For 2020 and 2021, the practice has no contracts with Dutch health insurers or municipalities. In this case, you first pay the bill yourself. You may be able to get reimbursed by an international health insurance provider. In case of a Dutch health insurance provider, through restitution you get about 70% back from your insurer in case of a "naturapolicy". With a restitution policy you will receive a full refund of the market rate from your insurer.
In order to qualify for reimbursement, you need a referral from a general practitioner with the following details: the name of the general practitioner and their personal AGB code, the probable DSM diagnosis, referral to S-GGZ. In addition, there must be a DSM-5 diagnosis that is included in the insured package by the Zorginstituut Nederland (ZiN). The diagnosis will be determined during the intake in consultation with you. If there is no diagnosis that falls under the insured care provided by the ZiN (uninsured performance, OZP) or if you prefer to pay for the therapy yourself, the rate in 2020 is € 114,41 per session of 45 minutes. In that case a referral is not necessary.
The rate for a no-show, which applies if an appointment is cancelled (by phone or e-mail) less than 48 hours in advance (or in case of an appointment on Monday, less than 72 hours), or if the appointment is not met, is € 105,- per missed appointment. This time is reserved for you. No shows or late cancelled appointments are not covered by the Dutch health insurance.
You can only sign up using the form below or by email. After that I would like to get acquainted by video or telephone call to discuss whether your problem and request for help, and my way of working fit together.
At Messages you can see the waiting time until the first appointment. An intake consists of three appointments; after an introductory intake there will be a second intake and an advisory appointment in which the treatment arrangements will be made.
