Psychotherapy in English

We are licensed psychological psychotherapists with a university degree in Psychology and a degree in Cognitive Behavioral Therapie (CBT) for adults.

What is CBT?
CBT is the treatment of choice for anxiety and depression with an emphasis on evidence based practice. We provide cognitive behavioral therapy for a wide range of problems, such as phobias, panic, social anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder, health anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, medically unexplained symptoms and stress management.

 

CBT is a short-term, structured and goal-oriented treatment directed toward solving current problems to help change unhelpful thinking and behavior.     

If CBT is recommended, you’ll usually have a session once a week, each session lasting 50 minutes. The course of treatment usually lasts for between 20 (short term therapy) and 45 sessions (long term therapy).

Can I afford a psychotherapy?

Private health insurance: The costs are usually embursed in full by your private heath insurance provider. It is best to ask your insurer about the standard procedure and to what extent the costs will be covered as contracts often vary. I charge the officical standard rates (GOP, 2,3* - 100,55 Euro per session).

 

If you choose to pay for yourself, you don’t have to worry about any formalities. Please contact zauner@spandau-psychotherapie.de for further information.

 

Public health insurance: Since we are a private practice, we have to make an application to get your public health insurance to cover therapy costs thourgh a reimbursement procedure („Kostenerstattungsverfahren“). Your health insurance requires a doctor’s report and evidence of your search for alternative therapists with a „Kassenzulassung“you have contacted (www. therapy.de – select „Kassenzulassung“) and state their waiting times (> 6 weeks) or unwillingness to see you due to language difficulties or other reasons. I offer a free initial consultation to help with the procedure.  

Where can I find the practice?

We are located near Spandau train station, within easy reach from Zoologischer Garten (11 minutes by train). We are located about 10 minutes from Charlottenburg and 20-30 minutes from Neukölln (U7).
