Through the links below you can read what you can expect from treatment at Evy psychology practice.

  • registration

You can register with Evy psychology practice through the form on the contact page. We will then plan a brief telephone conversation with you to discuss your symptoms and to see whether we will be able to help you. WE also inform you about the next steps. Before the first session we need to receive a referral from your GP.

  • treatment

In the first sessions, we examine your situation and make a structured analysis. This enables us to clarify how your symptoms arose and what caused them, and to determine which approach can be effective. We always choose methods that are evidence based and are suitable for you.

Sometimes a couple of sessions can go a long way to resolving the problem; sometimes it can take rather longer. Insofar as possible, we use active methods of short duration, in which you experiment and practice on your own as well as attend the sessions. Our treatments can be categorised as ‘first line care’ or ‘basic mental healthcare’ and usually consist of four to twelve sessions.

  • evaluation

We find it important that what we do, works. Therefore, we regularly evaluate whether you are getting enough benefit from the treatment. We do this by asking you to fill out questionnaires which measure change and speak about this with you. If necessary, we modify the approach; for example, by changing the pace or using different methods. If someone can better be helped by another expert, such as a doctor, a psychiatrist or a specialised psychologist, we can make a referral in consultation with the client.

  • costs

Often, your health insurance or employer will cover part of the costs of therapy. 

We intend to send you an invoice every two weeks. Because we do not have contracts with insurances, you are asked to pay the invoice yourself. To receive refund you can submit the invoice to your health insurance. The amount you will receive depends on your policy. If you have a ‘restitutiepolis’, you will probably be reimbursed 100% (except for your own risk). Usually about 70% is reimbursed with a ‘naturapolis’ or less with an ‘budgetpolis’. Please check in advance with your insurance what percentage will be reimbursed. You can say it concerns therapy in “BGGZ” (generalistische Basis-GGZ) with a BIG-registered psychologist (AGB for Evy=94063391; AGB for Janine Plaisier=94103254; BIG=49932712525) and an approved quality statement (if needed, please ask us for a copy).

To be eligible for reimbursement, you always need a referral letter from your GP and your problems must fit with a psychological diagnosis (“DSM-5 classification). Some problems are not reimbursed, such as burnout, grief or relationship problems.

Employers sometimes have special arrangements. They are increasingly willing to pay (part of) the costs of therapy, especially if your complaints are related to work (f.e. burnout, dealing with stress, perfectionisme). It is also possible to declare the costs through your own company.
