Frequently Asked Questions

Based on our experience, these are the most common questions asked by our clients. Scroll down and find more information about ourselves, our services, rates, polices, approach, and many more.

  • What is the role of a therapist or counsellor?
    Our role as therapists or counsellors is to create a safe and supportive environment to explore together your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. We aim to help you gain insight into your challenges, develop effective coping strategies, manage emotional distress, build healthy thought patterns and behaviour habits, and ultimately become your own therapist.
  • How do I know if I need therapy?
    All human beings face challenges from time to time, and this is completely natural. Research and experience have shown that people may benefited from therapy when they experience persistent emotional distress, overwhelming stress or anxiety, atypically low mood or loss of interest, unhealthy behavioural habits, trauma or PTSD, self-esteem issues, hooking in negative thoughts, difficulty to cope with everyday challenges, relationship or transition issues, and others. Ultimately, it is your own choice whether or not you will seek therapy.
  • Are you offering Group Skills Training?
    We take pride in providing comprehensive Skills Training to children and adolescents in a group setting. Through interactive and play-based activities, participants will learn valuable skills, including empathy, mindfulness, focus, problem-solving, self-esteem, and resilience to bullying, among others.
  • How can therapy benefit me?
    People come to therapy with specific or broad complaints relating to the various psychological challenges they face. No doubt, we will always aim to eliminate those challenges and problems. However, this can only be done by helping the clients develop new effective skills to cope with difficult thoughts and emotions, as well as new and healthy behavioural habits. Therapy will help you cultivate those skills and habits, understand the causes behind your challenges, discover and align your actions with your core values and goals, and ultimately become your own therapist.
  • What types of issues do you specialise in?
    Our training and clinical experience relates to a wide range of psychological difficulties and disorders in children, adolescents, adults, and families. We specialise in conditions such as anxiety, stress, depression, phobias, autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), challenging behaviours (e.g., aggression, impulsivity, difficulties to cooperate, etc.), self-esteem issues, everyday challenges (e.g., relationships, life transitions, difficulties to cope with everyday problems, etc.), eating disorders, food selectivity in children, insomnia and other sleep issues, family conflicts, and other related challenges.
  • What kind of therapy do you offer?
    We are committed to offering exclusively evidence-based interventions, the effectiveness of which has been demonstrated through numerous studies. Our practice is heavily based on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and other evidence-based approaches, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness-based Therapy, Behavioural Activation, Exposure Therapy, Today's Applied Behaviour Analysis, and others.
  • What is your general approach and values?
    We deeply believe that everyone can overcome their challenges and become the better version of theirselves. For this, we will offer you or your child a positive, safe, supportive, and compassionate environment, and we will help you or your child build effective skills and thought patterns. We value a humane and professional attitude based on trust, empathy, confidentiality, respect, and understanding.
  • How often will I receive therapy?
    This depends on the specific challenge, funding options, and client's complaints. While psychotherapy sessions typically occur once every week, therapy for developmental disabilities (e.g., autism) may occur multiple times a week.
  • How do I know if therapy was successful?
    Therapy is both a science and a human experience. We are committed to obtaining outcome measures for our therapy using research-supported clinical tools, rating scales, client feedback, and clinical observations. This way, you can always assess the effectiveness of therapy based on data and your own personal experience.
  • How long does therapy last?
    This depends almost entirely on your own complaints and goals. Based on the challenges studied, research has shown that therapy may take from one single session to several years. However, for the majority of psychological challenges, 12 to 25 sessions are generally considered an adequate period to show results. On the other hand, therapy for conditions such as autism or ADHD may last longer. How long our therapy will last will be outlined in our first meetings, but of course we can always reconsider and redefine the length of our collaboration.
  • How long does a session last?
    Our psychotherapy sessions will last 50 minutes. Of course, if we need a few more minutes to conclude the session smoothly, we will always accommodate this. At the same time, we kindly expect from everyone (ourselves included) to respect the time limits and professional boundaries. Sessions related to challenges such as autism may last from one to several hours, based on the complaints, funding options, and parents' wishes.
  • How much do the sessions cost?
    We offer different rates based on the location of the therapy session and the client's ability to pay. Our rate for in-person therapy in the office is 100€, while our rate for online therapy is 90€. Additionally, we provide a discount for vulnerable or marginalised populations at 75€.
  • How do I know if I am eligible for the discount?
    Research shows that some populations are of higher risk to experience some mental health issue. This is because society is discriminatory, offers less opportunities to some people, and in short sucks. We offer discounted rates to a wide range of populations, such as persons with a low income, single-parent families, students, LGBTQ+, persons from developing countries, survivors of abuse, and others. Feel free to contact us to ask more and we will always handle the selection process with discretion and confidentiality.
  • Do you accept Insurances or PGB?
    We are open to accepting your private insurance or Persoonsgebonden Budget (PGB) and will provide the necessary reports to support the approval of your budget. We are here to assist you in any way possible, helping you navigate the complexities of securing funding. However, please be aware that clients are ultimately responsible for ensuring their therapy is covered.
