Fees & Insurance

I do charge according to the official tariff system for psychotherapists (GOP) between 3.0 and 3.5 times the standard rate depending on professional assessment. Currently that amount varies between 120 € and 140 € per 50 minute session.

Why it can make sense to pay for psychotherapy privately

Private insurance

I am not part of the German statutory health insurance system (Gesetzliches Krankenversicherungssystem). Private insurances cover the costs of psychotherapy in general. However, I do not deal directly with your insurance company. You pay and then request reimbursement from the company. If you want them to reimburse you, I will provide you with a monthly “Receipt for Insurance” which you can turn in to your insurance company for reimbursement. You would be responsible for:

  1. Checking with your insurance carrier to make sure that they will pay for therapy with me;
  2. Paying upfront and sending in the “receipts for insurance” to your insurance to get reimbursed.
