Frequently Asked Questions

My approach

My orientation and training are predominantly Psychodynamic, although,  I employ some aspects of MBT (Mentalization Based Therapy), ISTDP (Intensive Short-Term Psychodynamic Psychotherapy) and others to better address the topics you’re coming with.
How I think and understand life is influenced by the works of the great therapists I studied but it’s not a finished process. The world of art, philosophy and nature feels necessary to me in trying to access the depth and uniqueness of human nature.

What is the frequency of appointments?

I usually work with patients/clients once a week. Thought we might discuss this further during our first session.

What is the duration of a session?

The individual session is  50 minutes.

The fees

Consultation/Therapy session held in The Hague or Amsterdam office – €100
Consultation/Therapy session Online via ZOOM– €90

How long does therapy take?

Therapy is a process that is influenced by a lot of factors. When I suggest the specific number of sessions or offer a long term therapy, I do this with the rule in mind that says: “Therapy should be as long as necessary and as short as possible”.

How do I start?

– You can either write me an email or give me a call to set up the first meeting: +31 6 393 494 01 or +48 698 685 615
– You can also check the availability of the sessions and book an appointment over here in my calendar.

Cancellation policy

If you wish to reschedule or cancel the meeting you should do so max 48h before the scheduled time. Otherwise, the fee is non-refundable.

How do we connect for the online therapy?

To safely hold a meeting online I use a service called ZOOM. It is an online platform that’s has been endorsed by various professional bodies. This choice is both ethical and safe protecting both the client and the therapist.
You need to have a free account set up before our first session. It’s very intuitive and requires minimal technical knowledge.

What about insurance?

I work within the Dutch system, and my therapy services are reimbursed by some of the Dutch insurance companies with their premium option.
Most international insurance companies also reimburce psychotherapy sessions held with me. You are however responsible for paying the bill yourself and afterwards you can apply for reimbursement with your insurer.
I encorague you to check it directly with your insurer if this matter is of high importance to you.

What if there's no available hours to schedule a meeting?

If you thre are no available hours for the meeting in the calendar – please contact me directly through email. If you wish I will then put you on a waiting list. As soon as as a place becomes avaiable, I’ll let you know.
