Frequently asked questions

Can I be treated in English or Hebrew?
Yes, this is often possible. A number of our therapists speak English or Hebrew. However, it is important that you are fluent in either Dutch or English as a second language. Feel free to contact us for further information.

Is it possible to receive remote treatment/video call sessions?
Yes, this is possible. Feel free to contact us for further information.

Can I pay out of pocket if I am not covered by Dutch health insurance?
Yes. If you do not have a Dutch insurance policy, you can pay for your treatment directly. Feel free to contact us on this matter. If you have foreign health insurance, it may be possible to claim the costs with your insurer. Please check the conditions of your insurance policy before applying for treatment.
