Psychotherapy is a service which is covered by the statutory health insurance (Gesetzliche Krankenkasse) and private german and american insurance companies, with recognized psychotherapists, if a mental problem or mental disorder is present. Psychotherapists have the first right of access, i.e. it is not necessary to consult another doctor first. In the first 1-3 hours, the so-called “Psychotherapeutische Sprechstunden”, which are covered by the insurance company in any case, it is clarified to what extent psychotherapy is indicated and if we can help you competently.
After that, there are 2 more probationary sessions (Probatorische Sitzungen) during which you can check whether you feel comfortable with us and whether you want to start psychotherapy with us. After the probationary sessions, an application is made to the insurance company and a contingent of 24 hours (50 minutes) is normally approved.
