How much does it cost to use Mindler?

Currently, you can receive treatment at Mindler through your employer or through the Dutch national healthcare system, which means your treatment most likely will be reimbursed if you have a Dutch basic health insurance. Reimbursement via your health insurer is only possible with a valid referral letter. We have contracts with many of the Dutch health insurers. In case we do not have a contract with your insurer, we will pay your own contribution. Keep in mind the legally required liability, called “eigen risico”, and the rules regarding the basic insurance.

What can I expect from the treatment?

Mindler offers treatment in two main areas: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Psychotherapy (PT).

CBT focuses on learning a new, healthier way of thinking and acting. PT takes a closer look at the causes of your symptoms, including examining your past.

What help can I get?

Through Mindler you will be in contact with a clinical psychologist, psychotherapist or GZ psychologist. We only employ accredited professionals who have at least three years of experience in mental health care. They will assess, investigate and treat your mental health issue.

When do I seek help?

You should seek help when your mental health starts to have a negative impact on your life, and things that normally make you feel better no longer work. Trust your own instincts, and don’t underestimate how you feel. A small event in your life can cause a big inner crisis. People often seek help for a problem that turns out to be much bigger than they previously thought. For instance:

• Feeling that you have lost your zest for life
• Sleeping problems
• Decreased appetite
• Worrying without a reason
• Finding it hard to relax
• Difficulties in feeling joy
• Urge for self-torment
• Compulsions that are a burden on you
• Phobias that interfere with your life

Contact your GP and discuss your concerns. Your GP can determine if your complaints are suited for treatment.
