Are you worried about your psychological well-being or that of a loved one but find it difficult to get help or know where to start? Seeking psychological support and going to the first appointment are often the most difficult steps in finding support. Seeking treatment often evokes strong feelings, and the variety of different forms of support may also be confusing. It is also not always clear whether support is needed, what kind of support would suit you best or how the process in general works.
If you are not sure what type of help is needed or who to turn to, a mental health consultation offers you practical advice for taking the next steps in figuring out your situation.
Mental health professional helps you find the right treatment path
The purpose of the low-threshold consultation is to help take the first steps towards psychological support and step over other thresholds related to starting treatment. During a mental health consultation, you can safely discuss your situation or that of a loved one with a mental health professional. The mental health consultation is 100% confidential.
For example, if you are not sure which type of help benefits you most, if you are wondering which is the correct form of therapy for you or if you just want to get a clearer view of your situation or problem, we recommend booking a consultation appointment. The consultation service can also offer psychological first aid in unexpected or upsetting situations. During the consultation, a mental health professional charts your situation and helps you find a suitable treatment path along which to move forward.
Content of a mental health consultation
The duration of a consultation appointment is 45 minutes and the price is EUR 93. A consultation can also be organised as a remote appointment.
You do not need a referral for the consultation; instead, you can book an appointment freely in our online booking system. You can often get an appointment for the same day or the next day.
Please note that a consultation is not intended to be the first session of longer psychotherapy and not everyone who offers consultation can take on new psychotherapy customers. When seeking Kela-reimbursed psychotherapy, you can't make an appointment with a psychotherapist with an appointment indication of “Does not take new KELA-customers”.
