First appointment

At PEP Psychologen, a team of expert psychologists is at your service to help you reduce or overcome your psychological problems. An appointment with a psychologist usually takes place within two to four weeks after initial registration. This psychologist will usually also become your treating psychologist. During this first appointment, we discuss your issues and the options for treatment.

Treatment plan

The psychologist sets up a treatment plan in consultation with you. This treatment plan addresses the goals and method of treatment. During interim evaluations, you will reflect on the treatment process together. If necessary, we will adjust the goals and methods. This allows us to safeguard the effectiveness and quality of your treatment.

Online modules

These programmes offer information concerning your problems and give you the opportunity to watch information videos, create assignments, and receive feedback from your treating practitioner. We offer these programmes via Therapieland.

Your health insurer will cover most of these treatment methods.

“I enjoy working at PEP. We offer various treatment options and also regularly develop new treatment forms, such as group therapy. The team is diverse, which challenges my open-mindedness. It is always inspiring to have the privilege to experience a client’s personal development process up close.”
