Due to a large amount of registrations we find ourselves in need to take the decision to put a temporary halt on registrations for new clients.
We advise you to get into contact with your GP.
The GP will help you find another practice where you can register and receive the needed care.

Please be aware that due to circumstances our practice will only be reachable over phone from 13:30 to 15:30 hrs starting Monday October 24th till Sunday March 5th 2023.

In case you need to cancel an appointment please email us at:

Please note: we are not able to react to your request within the time that you are used of us. Our sincere apologies.

Off course you can also talk into our voicemail. Please make sure to leave us your name and date of birth.

Current waiting times/health insurers

Typically, Grip Psychologen can arrange an intake session as well as further treatment within a reasonable amount of time. We try to prevent waiting lists as much as possible, however, unfortunately we can not always live up to that. It may happen that waiting times for an intake session are longer than usual or waiting times between the intake and the start of the treatment apply. This is however not necessarily the case. The waiting time for online treatment is usually shorter. 

Waiting times may vary per healthcare insurer, due to the required spreading of our budget per insurer over the course of the year.

We update this overview weekly to the most recent status. If you are already on the waiting list and have any questions about your place on the waiting list, you can always contact us by phone (085-0471147).

It often occurs that a free spot arises in the calendars of our therapists, regardless of the waiting times. Our administration is very likely to then make a round of calls to try and fill up these spots with people already on the waiting list. Therefore, we advise you to save our phone number (085-0471147) in your contact list. If you have flexible availability, chances are you will get an appointment quicker.

Waiting list mediation

If you think our waiting times are too long, please contact your healthcare insurer and ask for waiting list mediation. Your insurer should be able to provide you a placement for intake within a maximum of 4 weeks after your first contact with a healthcare provider, and full treatment within a maximum of 10 weeks after intake. These are the maximum acceptable waiting times that have been jointly agreed on by care providers and healthcare insurers (the so-called 'treeknormen' in Dutch) (Nederlandse Zorg Autoriteit, 2016). 

For so-called non-refundable healthcare or in case of paying for treatment yourself, we can welcome you at Grip Psychologen at any time.

Our tips for bridging the waiting time

  • While you are on the waiting list we grant you access to the module First Steps to Recovery on e-health platform Therapieland. This module gives you some initial tools to improve your sleep, reduce worrying, help with relaxation and difficult emotions.

  • Contact your GP's practice to make an appointment with the health care practice nurse (POH-GGZ). The POH-GGZ cannot treat you but can offer you support to manage the waiting time.
