Frequently asked questions
How do I schedule an appointment?
Please use the contact tab or email. You will then be contacted and offered a free 15 minute phone consultation during which time you can briefly discuss your reasons for seeking therapy. If we agree that we are a good fit to treat your concerns, an initial appointment will then be scheduled. Alternatively, you can choose to schedule an appointment without an initial phone consultation. There is no need for a referral to meet with the psychologist.
How much will sessions cost?
A 50 minute individual session is €90.
Cancellation fees apply for cancelled sessions with less than 24 hours notice (50% of the full session fee) and the full fee applies for missed appointments without any notice.
How do I pay for sessions?
Payments are to be made at the time of the session. Payment can be made via bank transfer or online payment system.
Where are you located?
The office is conveniently located centrally at Amstel 182, Amsterdam (across from the National Opera and Ballet Theatre). Waterlooplein and Rokin Metro stops are close by. Please see the contact tab for a map of the location.
Can I claim insurance?
Your Space Psychology is not affiliated with any Dutch Health Insurance companies. Some International Insurance providers will reimburse therapy costs. Please check with your health insurer whether there are any reimbursements available.
What about confidentiality?
It is important to note that your privacy is protected at all times. Psychologists are bound by the legal requirements and follow strict guidelines for professional conduct that include confidentiality.
Your client information is stored in an online Practice Management System. This system complies to both the Australian standard and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Any information disclosed to your psychologist in sessions remains confidential, however, there are several specific situations where your information may be required to be disclosed (i.e. your psychologist can discuss your circumstances with another). These include if there is immediate risk of harm to yourself or others, if your file is subpoenaed by court, and if supervision or a second opinion is required with another psychologist. Where possible, you will always be informed that some disclosure will be occurring and disclosure of your information will be kept to a minimum.
If you would like further information about your rights as a client of a psychologist, please talk to Elise or contact the Dutch Association of Psychologists (NIP).
