Scope - Practice for Psychotherapy

Scope Psychotherapie is a discreet, professional practice in the centre of The Hague offering psychotherapy in Dutch and English for babies, (young) children, adolescents and their parents as well as for adults. Together with the client(s), the psychotherapists will design a therapy that is best suited to the client(s)'(s) needs and (developmental) age. We aspire to effectively help reduce and if possible eliminate emotional and psychological difficulties. Among other forms of therapy, we offer parent-infant psychotherapy, mentalisation based treatment, play therapy, and trauma therapy (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing). All psychotherapist practitioners are experienced, fully qualified, and accredited in The Netherlands. The attached brochure of the LVVP informs you of what you may expect from us. 

Psychotherapy for children is covered by the city since 2015. This applies to children living in The Hague, Delft, Leidschendam-Voorburg, Midden-Delfland, Pijnacker-Nootdorp, Rijswijk, Voorschoten, Wassenaar, Westland, and Zoetermeer. The cost of therapy for children living outside of this area will be billed directly to their caregivers. 

Psychotherapy for adults is covered by all Dutch basic insurance packages. We have contracts with almost all Dutch insurance companies for 2018 and 2019 with the exception of some, please contact us to find out what this means for you. If you have a foreign insurance company please check your coverage beforehand; the cost of the therapy will be billed to you directly. 

A referral from your GP is necessary if you wish to have it reimbursed by the city/insurance. Make sure that the referral specifically mentions the reason for referral (complaints) and whether your doctor believes it wil be a BG-GGZ or a SGGZ trajectory. Your GP will know to what you are referring when you mention this.

We offer the same services to those who wish to have therapy in absolute anonymity (from the city/insurance) or to those who do not meet the criteria for a formal diagnosis but who feel that their quality of life is impaired by their complaints. For those sittings we charge the fee that has been set by the Dutch Healthcare Authority (NZa). For 2018 the NZa determined the amount of €101,03 for a session of 45 minutes.

Please contact us at 070-3477517 on workdays between 9 - 17 hrs. to consult with us about whether our therapies best suit your needs. We may not always be able to attend your call immediately: please leave a message and we will contact you as soon as possible.
