Please call me or send me an email in order to arrange an initial meeting. Any questions you may have will gladly be clarified in advance. In the personal preliminary session, which can take place face to face or via video, we will spell out your concerns and how our further cooperation looks like. The session can be held in English, German, or bilingual in German/English.

Sessions for individuals, couples, or families usually take 60 - 90 minutes. The fee for one hour (60 minutes) of counselling or therapy for individuals amounts to 100 EUR, for couples and families it is 120 EUR. The amount due is to be paid at the end of the session. A cancellation fee worth 60 minutes will be charged if a session is not cancelled at least 2 business days (Monday through Friday) in advance. Alternative practitioner’s services are exempt from VAT according the German UStG.

Multiple statutory public health insurance companies cover the costs of systemic health coaching, because there are corresponding cooperation agreements with the supply partner SYSTHEB UG in place. Goal of systemic health coaching is a quick and close to home way of supporting people with mental stress and illness or with an acute crisis. This way, long waiting times for free therapy places can be avoided and a rapid and sustainable mental stabilization can be achieved. By activating and improving the existing resources and strengths of the client, systemic health coaching supports the client in their self-care. This can lead to a significant improvement of the mental welfare.

As certified partner of the SYSTHEB UG you are welcome to contact me to check together whether the costs of the coaching are be covered by your public health insurance.

In some cases, there is also the possibility of reimbursement by the statutory public health insurers, e.g. in the case of a longer waiting period (over 3 months) for a therapy place with a psychotherapist having a public health insurance license.

However, the benefits of a self-pay client are also numerous:
  • Short waiting times
  • As client, you determine the duration of counselling and the intervals between meetings
  • No reports are made to the public health insurance or private insurance company
  • Counselling/therapy is not tied to tedious procedures approved by health insurance companies
Private insurance companies, as well as supplementary health insurance contracts, sometimes reimburse incurred treatment costs. I recommend inquiring with your insurer. Please contact me if you cannot cover the full cost privately due to your economic situation. In a personal conversation we will try to find an individual solution.
