Skype-Therapy.org works from the Netherlands and is therefore subject to Dutch law. This means I do not need to charge VAT. Rates are based on your annual income:
|Gross income per annum||Tariff per session|
|up to 20.000 Euro||45,00 Euro|
|20.000 – 30.000 Euro||55,00 Euro|
|more than 30.000 Euro||70,00 Euro|
All sessions are 50 minutes in length, usually couples counselling is done using double sessions of an hour and 40 minutes at a time.
If you are a Dutch resident, your obligatory health insurance does not cover these charges. This does not mean that you are better off going to a psychologist contracted into the health insurance system, especially if you haven’t yet used up your own risk. Contracted psychological aid is charged at a rate of around 92 Euro per session. If you have a DSM-diagnosis, a maximum of 12 sessions per year are covered, whereas most (evidence-based) treatments require a minimum of 20 sessions. At Skype-therapy.org we don’t bother with DSM diagnoses (even though we’re fully versed in making such a diagnosis), we simply help you deal with the issues at hand using state-of-the-art interventions.
