I do my best to accomodate your schedule and have weekday and evening options.

Currently my availability is on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.

Insurance Coverage

Have a Dutch health insurance? Treatment could be covered by your insurance. You first need a referral letter from your general practitioner (huisarts). You can make an appointment with your general practitioner, discuss your symptoms and ask for a referral letter.


Have an international insurance? Many international insurances do offer coverage. You may or may not need a referral letter from your general practitioner (huisarts). Please check the requirements with your insurance.

If you need more information on the process or have any questions about it, feel free to contact me.


Is your mental health problem not covered by insurance?

Although many mental health problems are covered by health insurance in the Netherlands, not all are.

For example, relationship therapy is often not covered.

In addition, some people opt to seek mental healthcare outside of the healthcare system (private care).

In case you need or prefer to cover the costs yourself, the following fees apply:

Individual therapy: Therapy with an individual such as an expat, professional or trailing spouse

  • A session is 60 minutes and includes: 45 minutes face-to-face or online appointment and 15 minutes of indirect time (such as preparations, administration)

  • Cost: 95 euros (no VAT charged)

Relationship therapy: Therapy with a couple

  • A session is 75 minutes and includes: 60 minutes face-to-face or online appointment and 15 minutes of indirect time (such as preparations, administration)

  • Cost: 115 euros (including VAT)

Discounts for students, unemployed and other people with special circumstances: 

please contact me for information.

Cancellations and Changes

If you need to cancel or change an appointment, that's fine! Please do so at least 24 hours in advance. Unfortunately, I will have to charge the full session price if the cancellation is very last-minute. Thank you for your understanding!

* Have a corona-related issue and need to cancel your appointment? In that case, I will not charge for a last minute cancellation.

Complaint procedure: Please contact me for information on the complaint procedure or have a look in this document (in Dutch; English version is under preparation).
