Visiting a psychologist and starting psychotherapy
Is my mental problem "serious" enough?
Our focus is always your experience. You do not need to have been diagnosed to have a problem you would like help with. Whatever you bring is important for us.
How do I prepare for psychotherapy?
When you first considered going for therapy you had a concern and an idea or hope that your life could be different. This may be a good starting point; try and describe the concern in both specific and general terms.
You may start the reflection by asking yourself: “What would I like to have achieved in life when therapy has ended?”. Imagine a scenario where you are free to interact in a way, that is governed by your desires as opposed to fears.
Therapy often involves how you relate with partners, friends, family, colleagues and doing things that is important to you.
Sometimes it is difficult to identify exactly what you want more of. You may just have a deep desire to get rid of something unwanted you experiencing inside. Try and describe the inner experiences; thoughts, feelings and sensations that are troubling you.
While it can be helpful to prepare, sometimes this is not possible and the best start is just to show up and begin the process.
What can I expect of the consultation?
In the first session we will ask questions that help us understand what is bothering you, situations that are particularly difficult and how you would like to see yourself in them - if you were able to react differently. When we have an overview of what situations and psychological experiences that are particularly challenging we can start therapy. We will get close to your psychological barriers and work intensively on giving you alternative ways of reacting to them. You will sometimes receive homework between consultations that assist you with achieving your therapeutic goals.
What if I don't like the method or feel uncomfortable?
Therapy may raise a range of questions and feelings. During the consultations you are free to ask and address any thoughts or feelings that may surface. The consultation is also an experimental setting where you can test new skills, receive feedback, and build motivation to exercise them outside the clinical environment. You need not to hold back, we are professionals and trained at being present with your thoughts and feelings – also when they concern the sessions and how you feel about our performance.
Are you taking notes?
Sometimes we take notes during the course of conversation. It helps assist our memory between sessions. You can freely view the notes if you ask.
How many session will I need?
It is very difficult to predict. It depends on the goal you set, how pervasive your difficulty is and your level of motivation to get it solved. Most often we see clients between 1 and 7 sessions and sometimes longer
Can I use my private health insurance?
If you have a private insurance we can often invoice your insurance company directly. When you contact your insurance company let them know that you have found a psychologist and ask for a letter of coverage for your psychologist.
How do I pay?
After the consultation you will be asked to pay with MobilePay or with cash (please bring the exact amount we do not have change). Unfortunately, we do not take card payments. If you are covered by an insurance and let us know in advance, we may be able to settle the balance with them for a fee.
Can I get a discount?
When you are looking for a "cheaper" / reduced consultation rate you may want to consider our graduates. When they are training, they offer sessions at a reduced rate. All graduates receive regular supervision. Sometimes we also offer free sessions when they are recorded.
Do I need a referral from my medical doctor?
You do not need a referral to make an appointment. If your difficulty qualifies for a referral from your GP and you want to make use of the government subsidy you need to contact a psychologist that is part of the public health system. We are a private clinic.
How do I cancel or reschedule?
If you are unable to attend your appointment, please advise us as soon as possible and before 9:00 am one working day prior to your appointment. You can use email, phone, or the answering machine. Please do not use TXT/ SMS messages as our phones are sometimes forwarded and your message will get lost. Timely notice allows us to free up our time and offer the appointment to someone else. You will be charged the full consultation fee when you have not cancelled in due time.
How long do I wait for an appointment?
We can usually offer you an appointment within one week.
Are my sessions confidential?
We are subject to strict laws regarding the protection of our clients’ identities. It means that you can share information and talk about what is important to you in complete confidentiality. Even when during supervision key elements are altered to protect your identity.
Are you receiving regular supervision?
We partake in supervision. This is a forum where we discuss theory, interventions, and methods with professional colleagues. When we receive advice on a client, the client is always anonymous. The supervision team are all psychologist and subject to strict laws of confidentiality. Our goal is to offer you the best therapy and intervention available.
Can “others” see I have visited a psychologist?
We are a private clinic and as such your visits are not registered in a "public" health register when you pay yourself. If a third party is paying in full or in part (e.g. insurance), they will have information about your claim and referral. We are not allowed to give information to any third party without your consent - unless your life or someone else' life is in danger.
When your sessions are covered by an insurance they often require that we provide a brief progress report or status indicating whether you are likely to benefit from therapy. Please feel free to ask us if you have any questions.
Can I get sessions outside of normal working hours?
Yes, it is often possible outside 9am-5pm. Please let us know when you write us. Beware that not all our psychologists offer those hours and there may be a small additional fee.
What is the type of treatment you offer?
We help clients overcome various forms of psychological challenges. It ranges from couples therapy, individual and family therapy. Treatment methods varies according to the problem you are facing and the psychologist's preferred approach. Our approach is always evidence based.
The psychologist's self-help tools
Use our psychological test toold for free. You can test yourself for anxiety, stress, depression and quality of life. You will get immediate feedback. Testing yourself can also be a way to keep track of your developments - or lack theraof - over time and or during therapy.
Invite your partner to do an online "partner health check". Work you way through topics that is associated with whether the relationship will hold or break. Talking about differences can help you understand your partner, provide a basis for development and prevent potential conflicts - and perhaps you will be able to spare couple therapy.
Get started with Mindfulness for free. We have collected Mindfulness exercises that you can access for free. The exercsies are often helpful to combine with therapy as studies have shown that your general awareness increases making it possible to better catch and change bad habits. We also offer introductions to Mindfulness as well as dedicated training.
