Private Health Insurance
The costs of therapy are usually reimbursed in full by private health insurance providers. It is best to inquire with your health insurance company and ask to what extent the costs will be covered as the contracts often vary. There may be a limitation to the number of sessions that can be funded or the costs, which they will reimburse may be capped. Some policies exclude any kind of psychotherapy. Since policies differ so much, the only reliable source of information is your representative at your health insurance company.
Our charges are regulated by the official scale of fees for psychological psychotherapists (“Gebührenordnung für Psychologische Psychotherapeuten”, GOP). We charge the standard rates with a multiplicator of 3.09. Under exceptional circumstances (e.g. for complex problems or sessions over 50 minutes long) we use a higher multiplicator. For the sake of clarity you can find a detailed summary of all possible costs in the table below.
You personally receive invoices from your therapist. Depending on your contract, you will later be reimbursed partially or in full by your insurance company.
Should you wish to cover the costs of therapy out of your own pocket, we negotiate suitable arrangements for you at the beginning of therapy.
