Coumou & Katerberg Psychotherapy
PRACTICE FOR PSYCHOTHERAPY
Brand Coumou (1978)
GZ-Psychologist, PsychotherapistMy way of working is best described by down-to-earth thinking and humor. In working with you I keep in mind your personal experiences en believes, the relations you are having and –when implacable- your physical situation. I like to work with you on your problems (mood, fear, anxiety, uncertainty, not-knowing-what, or specific problems). I use techniques as behavioral exercises, and cognitive techniques to explore your dysfunctional thoughts you might be having. I also use techniques derived from emotion-focused therapies, schema focus therapy and mentalisation based therapy to explore emotions and feelings that might be bothering you. I also use the EMDR technique when painful memories or believes are troubling you.
I am registered by Dutch law as psychologist (BIG-registered GZ-psychologist) and as psychotherapist (BIG-registered Psychotherapist). I am also registered as sexologist by the Dutch association of Sexology (Nederlandse Vereniging voor Seksuologie www.nvvs.info) and as system therapist by the Dutch association of Relation and Family therapy (Nederlandse Vereniging voor Relatie- en Gezinstherapie www.nvrg.nl). These are my registration numbers: GZ-psycholoog number: 69912685725, and Psychotherapeut number: 89912685716.
Hanni Katerberg (1982)
GZ-Psychologist, PsychotherapistAs a psychotherapist I mainly work from a psychoanalytical perspective. An important starting point of the psychoanalytical theory is that we are not fully aware of the motives of our behavior. By becoming more consciously aware of your thoughts and feelings, we are able to improve the understanding of your psychological problems. Sometimes traumas have to be processed. Psychotherapy can lead to more grip on recurrent personal experiences and tries to search for new ways of coping with situations.
I am experienced in working with people with different beliefs, backgrounds and ages, and the treatment of various symptoms and (personality)problems. It’s possible to do a therapy in english. I try to find a balance between an accepting and a confronting attitude. In an intake session we can explore together if psychotherapy can help you out when you feel stuck.
I am registered by Dutch law as a healthcare psychologist (Gezondheidszorgpsycholoog, BIG nr. 59912691725) and a psychotherapist (Psychotherapeut, BIG nr. 79912691716).

costs and restitutions
We have made no deals with health insurance companies so we can offer you the best possible care
Psychotherapy is reimbursed within the “basispakket” of Dutch health insurance companies. You need to have a diagnosis to be able to receive restitution. Reimbursement will always be settled with your “eigen risico”.
Before intake we need a referral letter from your general practitioner (“huisarts”).
We charge €90 for individual sessions (45 minutes) and €140 for partner-relationship sessions (75 minutes). You will receive monthly an invoice. At the end of treatment, or after 1 year you receive a final invoice with the total costs of your treatment (in accordance with Dutch legislation for mental health practitioners, which determines our rate). This final invoice you can send to your health insurance for restitution. We will settle the final invoice with already paid bills. Restitution of costs will take place at the end of your treatment, or after 12 months.
Our way of working makes you responsible for restitution. It is important to contact your health insurance before starting your treatment to learn about your restitution possibilities. For instance, when you have a “natura verzekering” restitution rate can be between 50%-and 80%. When you have a full “restitutie verzekering” you will have 100% restitution.
We advise all our clients to make use of full restitution insurance to keep your own freedom of choice when searching for a (mental) health care practitioner.
