Coverage with Health Insurance

& Basic Insurance.

Since a change of the federal law on the first of July 2022, psychotherapy costs are now also covered through basic insurance if prescribed by a doctor.


Eventhough Linda is officially licensed to write invoices via basic insurance, we don't offer this service at the moment because of professionally related political reasons.


& Complementary Insurance.

Some Complementary Insurances (CI) cover a certain amount of our sessions. However, the differences within the insurances are vast. The following documents and text represent our recommended procedure:

Please inform yourself about the coverage of your own CI.


Update, Oct 2022:

  • With the change of law to the "Anordnungsmodell", some Complementary Insurances no longer cover psychotherapy services while others will only change their coverage on January first, 2023, or won't change it at all.
  • Currently the billing via CI is dealt with differently and needs to be checked out individually.
  • We recommend using these links to the FSP Register (Linda & Vanessa) or to PsyReg (Linda) to ask your CI whether they cover our services.

As self-pay client you will bear the costs of the psychological counselling/therapy yourself. A pay-in slip will be sent via e-mail.


If you suffer the consequences of an accident, you can claim reimbursement from your accident insurance company.

If you seek therapy because of the consequences of physical or psychological abuse, you can apply to the regional office for victim support (Opferhilfe) to have some of the costs covered.


Appointments can be cancelled up to 24 hours beforehand, in which case nothing will be charged. In case of short-term cancellation, we charge half of the original rate, in case of no-show without any preceding notice, we charge the full amount of the session.
