House of Psychology

Launch into the study of mind & behavior



House of Psychology accommodates psychological counseling for the curious, the life-long learners and those who strive for authenticity. We love to grow with the flow!



In this house, we welcome a healthy spark of madness. But if you are overcome with emotions more often than guided by them, we invite you to take the deep-dive with us.



We believe in power by knowledge! Therefore our hospitality comes with transparency & education about psychopathology, therapy techniques & reflection-tools.


Everything you think, feel and do, has once been learned and been functional. But thoughts & behaviors, although useful in the past, might only be convenient on short-term in your current situation. On long-term they evoke negative emotions, patterns & habits. While you try to make use of the strategies which once have been beneficial, mood will decrease, tension will rise and confidence will lower. Leaving you wondering or even helpless. This leads to a vicious cycle of thoughts, feelings & behaviors. It makes you feel as if you are unable to break out. 

Cognitive-behavioral therapy thrives to empower everyone with knowledge & techniques to recognize those patterns, to learn about their assets & flaws. It takes courage to face your struggles, but self-knowledge is a worthy & sustainable reward.


We seek to build a community in which learning about yourself  is common sense. 

Openness & inclusivity grow with knowledge & visibility. Therefore we encourage our students, clients, their family members & friends to gain and share psychological insights. As we walk our talk(s) in this house, you will find illustrations and information about our personal use of psychology-techniques on this site.

Our treatment costs are according to Government set-tariffs by the Netherlands Healthcare Authority (Nederlandse Zorgautoriteit – NZA).

Specialized mental health care (SGGZ) is covered by the standard package (basisverzekering) of Dutch health insurers. House of Psychology has no contracts with health insurance companies (non-contracted healthcare provider). Consequently, payment has to be made directly by you. It is up to you to file this invoice with your insurance company to claim reimbursement.

In order to get reimbursed by your Dutch insurance company a referral letter (SGGZ) from your GP is necessary. The actual amount of reimbursement depends on your current insurance coverage and your chosen own risk (minimum in 2020 €385)  We recommend the insurance “restitutiepolis”, as this offers the maximum coverage, usually 100% of the NZA-rates.

To check your coverage for our treatment we advise you to contact your health insurance company and check the coverage for specialized mental health care by a non-contracted recognised B.I.G. registered mental health care professional (or in Dutch: ‘gespecialiseerde GGZ door niet-gecontracteerde, erkende BIG geregistreerde zorgverlener’).

If you have an international health insurance in most cases treatment costs by the House of Psychology will -at least partially- be covered. However, depending on the insurance you carry and/or the organization you are insured through. Usually there are certain requirements that will have to be met and/or there is a maximum (annual) coverage. Thus, some insurance companies require prior approval before treatment  others may only cover a certain number of sessions or have a maximum coverage per calendar year.

To check your coverage for treatment please contact your insurer beforehand.

House of Psychology is an institution recognized by the Dutch government for Specialized Mental Healthcare (SGGZ) and is in possession of the official quality standard (Kwaliteitsstatuut).
