Almost everyone sometimes faces times when things don't go as they should. They might experience difficulties at work, feel gloomy, anxious or experience problems with interpersonal relationships. Most of the time, people can deal with these problems on their own. When this is not the case however, our psychologists may be of help. Psychological treatment prevents your symptoms from getting worse and can make you feel better again.

Psychological issues

Grip Psychologen is a small organisation that mainly offers treatment within basic mental health care (in Dutch: basis GGZ or BGGZ), which are short term treatments varying from 4 to 11 sessions. We also offer the possibility of treatment within specialised mental healthcare (in Dutch: specialistische GGZ or SGGZ), provided that the issue is in line with our treatment options. These treatments generally take up around 18 sessions. For more information about both basic and specialised mental health care, please visit the page 'what we offer'.

Grip Psychologen works according to the quality standards of mental health care (note that this website does not have an English version). We also use an electronic patient record, please click for more information.


Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
