The Fees

For a therapeutic session

For a therapeutic session (exempt from VAT):

60 minutes: 80 EUR

90 minutes: 110 EUR

120 minutes: 140 EUR

After 120 minutes 20 EUR per 30 minutes.

(20% off for students, unemployment and people with low income)

 

Weekends/Holidays: Generally possible upon request.

Email/texting/Chat: Between sessions a continuous contact may be necessary and important, usually via email or text messages. Answering questions via email or texting will be charged with 12 EUR per 15 minutes. 

Home visits: If you prefer me to come to your home or office, we will individually discuss the fees. 

Duration of a session: Usually a session lasts 2 hours, especially when working with the Completion Process and heavy emotional charge surfaces. Over time with more experience the sessions can be shorten to 90 or 60 minutes. 

For a coaching session

Same as for a therapeutic session plus 19% VAT. Coaching is not exempt vom VAT.

Does the German health insurance pay the bill?

In general, the statuory health insurance does not pay the fees for therapeutic sessions of an alternative practitioner of psychotherapy in Germany. Some German private health insurer may pay under certain circumstances at least part of the fees. Speak with your private health insurer.

 

In Germany the costs may be tax-decuctable ("außergewöhnliche Belastung" or "Werbungskosten"). You will receive an according invoice. 

There are good reasons why to pay therapy privately

You receive quick help - especially in urgent cases.

You don't have to wait long for a therapy place.

You will not receive a diagnosis of a mental disorder. If a mental diagnosis is known to the health insurance it will be difficult and cost intensive to change to a private health insurance.  

If you have a private health insurance, your contributions may increase due to the classification as a high-risk patient because of a psychological diagnosis.


The Procedures

Flexible consultation hours

In order to meet your schedule flexibly I don't have fixed consultation hours. If you are working during the day or you are a full-time mom or dad, for example, I am happy to schedule a session in the evening, Saturdays and under specific circumstances also Sunday or holidays. Please schedule an appointment by contacting me using the mail form below or in the main menu.

Preliminary talk

Usually we will schedule a free and non-binding call or skype session of about 15 min to get to know each other and to introduce you shortly to my work (if not yet known to you). You may also already draft your problem. If we both agree to work together we will schedule a session. 

The session

The first session serves to build trust, to discuss your issues and to define therapy or coaching goals. I will introduce you to my working methods in more depths (if necessary) and we will start working already in the first session. At the end of every session we may define some individual homework for you that we will discuss in the next session. Homeworks increase the success and effectiveness of a therapy or coaching session. 

 

The one-on-one session can take place in two different ways:

 

Via videophony (skype) / phone / email: Our today's technology allows us to be locally independent. It does not matter if you are at home or traveling, you don't have to go without therapy or coaching sessions. Via email we can also discuss your issues and questions between sessions.  

Personally on site: You are welcome to come to my place in Munich. If you live in Munich or surroundings I would also be willing to come to your home or work place, as long as I can reach your location via public transportation.  

How many sessions do I need?

It depends on the complexity of your problem or issues. In the beginning a weekly or two-weekly rhythm has proven to have a continuous positive effect. Over time we can increase the time intervals depending what your needs are. I recommend to go by a minimum of 5 sessions to set an impulse for a sustainable effectiveness.  

Confidentiality

Therapeutic consultation is subject to professional discretion and will be treated with complete confidentiality. Third parties (e.g. family, partner, physicians) may not be informed without your express written approval. If it becomes necessary to have a release from the confidentiality obligation, we will define this by a separate confidentiality release agreement. 

Reschedule, cancel, forget appointment

If you need to reschedule or cancel the appointment, please let me know 24 hours beforehand. If you cancel within 24 hours or if you do not appear for the session, I reserve the right to charge the session partially or fully. 

Contact me

I am looking forward to getting to know you and to working with you. Please leave your contact details. Please also draft your issue shortly. I will get in touch with you as soon as possible. Fields with * are required fields.
