Are you looking for a psychologist?
You can contact us for the following symptoms and problems:
Therapies at WelBewust Psychologist Utrecht can be done in groups, using various therapy methods, matching with your symptoms and requests.
Below you will find more information about the therapies provided by WelBewust Psychologist Utrecht. All these forms of therapy are (as part of a treatment) reimbursed by Dutch and international health insurers.
Cognitive behavioral therapy [CBT] is a combination of looking at thoughts that have become problematic and investigating problematic behavioral patterns. CBT is a psycho-social intervention that is the most widely used evidence-based practice aimed at improving mental health. CBT focuses on the development of personal coping strategies that focuses on solving current problems and changing unhelpful patterns in cognition (for example thoughts, beliefs and attitudes), behaviors, and emotional regulation.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing [EMDR] is a therapy for people who continue to suffer from the consequences of traumatic experiences. The most important approach in EMDR therapy is to help the client process the memories of these events, with the intention of reducing the symptoms or make them disappear.
Competitive Memory Training [COMET] is a short-term cognitive behavioral intervention using various exercises to look at yourself or problematic situations differently. COMET is a therapy which improves a person’s self-image.
Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy [MBCT] aims to develop a different attitude towards (mental) problems. Mindfulness has two components. The first component concerns self-regulation of attention. The second component is developing a curious and accepting attitude towards experiences and feelings. Principles of mindfulness can be applied as part of cognitive behavioral therapy.
The main focus of Positive Psychology are in particular possibilities, qualities and that what makes you happy. This therapy is rather about releasing certain patterns, than imposing yourself on requirements that you must meet. Positive psychology is used in addition to other forms of therapy.
Groups consist of up to 6 participants and are available for clients with mild to moderate symptoms in anxiety, fear of failure and self-confidence. Using elements from cognitive behavioral therapy and positive psychology, exercises are done together to gain more insight into the symptoms and to reduce them. Exchanging experiences, giving advice, supporting and practicing with each other proves to have a great added value for clients and usually results in a quicker progress.
At WelBewust Psychologist Utrecht we use E-Health in the form of online modules, exercises and online questionnaires. We also apply video calling with the psychologist within our therapies. Video calling is a form of E-Health in which there is face-to-face contact between you and the psychologist online.
The benefits include:
Efficient: Video Calling is location-independent. For example, situations in which this is pleasant are when:
- You live at two locations
- You will travel
- You have been on the road for a long time
- You are visiting family or friends who live far away
- You are on holiday
- You are not able to go out of the house (physically or mentally)
- You have long travel times and do not want to spend time or money on this
- Effective: You have contact with your psychologist in the same way as if you have a physical appointment at the practice. You can also immediately discuss your progress and experience with the E-Health modules, which can be seen digitally.
-Safe: Because of the secure video connection, online contact between you and your psychologist is safe and according to the standards of information security and privacy.
Schema Therapy is a therapy that helps to understand and change the origin of behavioral patterns. The infuence of childhood experiences on patterns and daily life is investigated. You learn to change yourself in such a way that you start to feel better and take better care of yourself and stand up for yourself. You learn to feel what your need is and you learn to stand up for it in a healthier way. This not only changes your behavior, but also your thoughts and feelings. Schema-oriented therapy uses cognitive, experiential and behavioral exercises.
At WelBewust Psycholoog Utrecht, it is possible to have psychological research carried out in the context of treatment info, for example, AD(H)D, ASD, intelligence research, personality research. This is possible, for example, if you, your environment or your GP suspects this and it is important to investigate this in order to subsequently be able to use appropriate treatment. We also have partnerships with psychiatrists who can guide you in drug treatment if desired. It is also possible that during treatment it becomes apparent that complaints or problems still need to be investigated more extensively. A psychological examination can be started in joint consultation for this.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a new form of Behavioral Therapy. Within ACT, on the one hand, clients learn to deal in a flexible way with the obstacles they encounter and to stop the pointless battle with unpleasant thoughts, emotions and physical sensations (Acceptance). This involves learning to focus attention on things that one can directly influence, such as one's own behaviour. On the other hand, this ensures that people can continue to invest in the things that they really find important in life( Commitment values). At the heart of ACT is the philosophy that fighting unavoidable circumstances ultimately comes at the cost of living a vital and valuable life.
Complaint: We mainly apply ACT to clients with anxiety, depressive and stress complaints, especially when previous treatments have had insufficient results.
Target group: If necessary, we apply ACT to everyone who registers with us.
Running therapy is the therapeutic use of running for psychological complaints and is a complementary treatment activity. This means that clients also do running therapy in addition to psychological treatment sessions.
At WelBewust Psychologist the costs of your treatment are fully reimbursed by your health insurance company.
Fees and payment
For which reimbursement do you qualify?
WelBewust Psychologist Utrecht has contracts with all Dutch health insurers for Basic Mental Health Care (BGGZ) and the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).
This means that you are fully reimbursed for your health insurance. A DSM-V classification is needed (for example depression or anxiety disorder).
We have contracts with the following Dutch health insurers:
Zilveren Kruis FBTO, Ziezo, Avero Achmea, Interpolis, de Friesland, Pro Life, VGZ, Zekur, IZA, Unive, Bewuzt, IZZ, UMC, Aevitea, United Consumers, CZ, Ohra, Nationale, Nederlanden, Just, CZ Direct, Menzis, Anderzorg, Hema, PMA, Vink Vink, DSW, In Twente, Stads Holland, ONVZ, PNO zorg, VVAA, Jaaah, Zorg en Zekerheid, AZVZ, ASR, Ditzo, Caresq, Promovendum, National Academic, Besured, Aevitae, ENO, Salland, Zorgdirect.
Psychological care is covered by the basic insurance policy and thus claims the statutory own risk. In 2022, that is € 385, - (unless you have opted for a higher risk).
Also, if you have an European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) and AON Student Insurance, you will be reimbursed for treatments at WelBewust Psychologist during your stay in the Netherlands. In that case we will claim the costs of the health insurance directly. Therefore we will need a copy of your European Health Insurance Card, that you will need to bring to the intake. In this case, there are no additional costs for you personally.
Other or no health insurance
If you are not insured with any health insurers stated above, you are responsible for all outstanding fees. We will send you the bill and you'll have 14 days to pay. After payment of the full fee you have the option to submit a claim to your insurer yourself. Please check your insurance policy and advise us on any limitations that may affect your coverage for this treatment.
If you have any questions about the reimbursement of your health insurer, please contact us and we will inform you about the possibilities.
Basic Mental Health Care (GBGGZ)
The GBGGZ is a policy that works with 'treatment programs' in which you will be dependent on the severity of the symptoms and amount of distress. This will be established during the intake.
These treatment programs have their own fixed rates, in which all appointments and activities are registered. These include the following actions:
- The short intake with the practice by telephone and check of the referral.
- The personal intake with the psychologist
- The treatment sessions
- The time the psychologist spends on administration and record keeping for your file and if necessary consultations concerning the treatment
- The questionnaires
- E-Health exercises and / or modules
Upon completion of the treatment program, this program (with all the registered activities within it) will be declared to the health insurer. Declaration does not go through session or activity, but is based on the agreed treatment program.
If after the intake treatment, we must declare an 'incomplete treatment program' to the health insurer.
- Description treatment program
- Short, mild mental symptoms (max 294 minutes)
- Medium, moderate mental symptoms (max 495 minutes)
- Intensive, severe mental symptoms (max 750 minutes)
- Incomplete treatment program, applies in case of incorrect registration (max 120 minutes)
Costs of reserved time
Treatments are only made by appointment. This means that we have a strict schedule. It also means that the psychologist prepared the session specially for you. Appointments cannot be cancelled, aside from when you cannot be present in case of emergency. Making an appointment is not without obligation and is always personal. When you make an appointment, you automatically agree with our CANCELLATION TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
Cancelation of an appointment is only possible in case of emergency and if you do it 48 before the appointment it is without any costs. Cancelling is possible on working days from 08.45 am until 17:00 pm by phone with tel: 030-2074447 and through E-mail to: email@example.com
Holidays and the weekend from Fridays after 12pm are not included in the 48 hours. Appointments that are planned on Mondays, can only be cancelled before Friday 12pm without charging you. This can only be done in case of emergency.
- Cost of reserved time
- Reserved time session (45 min. appointment, 15 min. reporting)€ 110,-*
- * You need to pay these costs yourself.
Appointments cannot only be cancelled by E-mail (except during holidays). First you have to call and after that you can E-mail us. Every cancelation in the 48 hours before the appointment will be charged 110,- euro. Unfortunately we cannot make an exception, regardless of the reason.
There are mutiple reasons why we cannot make an exception:
- The psychologist loses the reserved time - the preparation time and the time of the session. This is not reimbursed by the health insurer,
- Other clients that need help cannot use this time,
- The progress of the canceling client will slow down,
- Admininstrations fees for the health organization (no show invoice, cancelation, reschadule the agenda, phone calls etc.).
Not all treatments for disorders and problems are covered by the criteria of a DSM-V disorder. Sometimes this care is reimbursed from additional insurance. Treatment is also available at your own expense. We will charge the costs of these sessions to yourself. If possible, you can submit it to your health insurer for reimbursement yourself.
If you do not want a referral from your General Practitioner, a treatment at your own cost is also possible. For uninsured care, the following rates apply.
- Rates uninsured care (from 01-01-2021)
- Session (45 min. face to face, 15 min. record keeping) € 117,33
- Intake session (45 min. face to face, 45 min. preperation and record keeping)€ 176,00

Please mention the following information in your transfer
These general payment conditions apply to all research and treatment agreements, both verbally and in writing, entered into between psychologist and the client.
Appointments must be canceled no later than 48 hours before the time of the examination and/or treatment. In case of non-cancellation or in case of cancellation within 48 hours before the appointment, the psychologist is entitled to charge the reserved time to the client.
All amounts declared by the psychologist to the client for the examination and/or treatment and other fees must be paid by the client within thirty days of the date of the invoice. The client cannot withhold payment with any recourse to set-off.
If the client has not paid the amount due within the payment term, the client is in default without any further demand or notice of default being required. The client will then owe the psychologist statutory interest on the outstanding amount as long as he/she fails to meet his/her obligations.
In the event of non-payment within 30 days of the invoice date, the psychologist will first send the client a payment reminder free of charge, in which he gives the client another two weeks to pay without extra costs. In this letter, the psychologist explicitly warns the client that collection costs will be charged after two weeks, stating how high these costs are.
If the client does not fulfill his/her obligations within 14 days of the date of the payment reminder, the psychologist is entitled to take collection measures or have them carried out by third parties without further notice of default.
All judicial and extrajudicial costs related to the recovery of the amounts declared, shall be borne by the client. The extrajudicial costs are set at a maximum of 15% of the amount to be claimed with a minimum of € 40.
In the event of repeated conflicts about payment, the relationship of trust between the client and the psychologist can come under great pressure. This can ultimately lead to the psychologist being forced to suspend or terminate the professional relationship because he believes there is a 'weighty reason' for termination.
