Appointments are scheduled weekdays, evenings, sometimes early morning. Alternative locations or sessions via skype or phone can be discussed.

When the phone cannot be answered directly, please leave a name/number so that you can be called back as soon as possible.

Fees for individual counselling, coaching or couple therapy are invoiced each time at € 70 per hour (including 21% VAT/BTW) and can be paid in cash or by bank transfer. For students or people with limited funds, reduced fees may apply. If the fee is an additional burden, please mention it early on. In the case of mediation, mediation fees apply.

Reimbursement of the cost (all, partly or up to a certain amount/year) may be available, depending on insurance company and package - of course any possible assistance will be given to facilitate this. Regardless, it is highly recommended to regard timely professional help as a smart investment in yourself that can pay off long-term in increased well-being and quality of life, and so benefit yourself and your environment.

Duration of counselling, coaching or therapy is normally a joint decision open to discussion, with the aim of having as few sessions as possible, but as many as necessary. This can be achieved by optimal use of the time available and mutual engagement in the process.

Regular supervision/intervision and continued education guarantee the highest possible professional standards.
