What should I expect during my first psychotherapy or psychological counseling session?
During your first session, your therapist or psychological counselor will likely ask you questions about your current concerns, symptoms, and background information. They will also explain the therapy or psychological counseling process, answer your questions and give you a chance to discuss your goals for therapy or psychological counseling. It's a good idea to arrive a few minutes early in order to have time to fill out any necessary paperwork and get familiar with the therapy space.

Will the session be covered by my health insurance?
Since July 1, 2022, it has been possible for psychological psychotherapy to be covered by basic insurance if the psychotherapist you have chosen has joined the order model and bills according to it. In order for the basic insurance to cover the costs, an order from a general practitioner (i.e. general internal medicine), a psychiatrist, or a doctor with an interdisciplinary focus on psychosomatic and psychosocial medicine (SAPPM) is required. Note that the deductible you choose also applies here. If a psychotherapist has not joined the prescription model, your supplementary insurance may reimburse part of the sessions. However, since July 1, this must be clarified in advance with the insurance company, as a major change is taking place in this regard. You will find the type of billing (basic insurance/supplementary insurance/self-payer) in the profile of the therapist. You can find more information here.
What types of mental health conditions can be treated with psychotherapy?
