We are a psychotherapy practice that offers both Basic Mental Health Care (Dutch: Basis GGZ) as well as Specialised Mental Health Care (Dutch: Specialistische GGZ).
The Basic Mental Health Care is meant for clients with light symptoms that do not cause too much distress and that haven’t been around for a long time. The goal of these therapies is to minimize the symptoms.
The Specialised Mental Health Care is meant for clients with more severe or more complicated symptoms that have been a problem for quite some time. The goal of these therapies is to change the structural problems on a fundamental level, which will reduce the chance of these problems resurfacing in the future.
