It’s time for a new form of care
Too many people are waiting too long before receiving psychological care. Its often a big step for them to seek help, and once they have taken that step, they would like help as soon as possible.
Unfortunately this is not the reality. Mental healthcare institutions have overcrowded schedules and long waiting lists – people are left feeling like they are dragged from pillar to post. On top of this, the number of people with mental health issues is increasing.
Why is it necessary?
Psychologist to go was founded due the dissatisfaction with the way psychological care is constructed in the Netherlands. I’ve worked (and partly still do) at various mental health institutions and ran to my dismay into a number of obstructions. Such as the long waiting times, the unnecessary and obscure red tape, the stigmatizing diagnosis, the long intake process, all set in limited privacy with lack of transparency.
I did not find this pleasant myself, but also not at all pleasant for the client. I thought: this must and can be done differently. So I decided to do something about it and set up my own company.
With Psychologist to go I want to ensure that psychological care is more accessible and friendly. A way to get the adequate support you need, faster and easier, like making an appointment with the hairdresser or physiotherapist. If people get help faster when the first complaints surface, a disorder in many cases can be prevented. I want to achieve this by facilitating psychological care in an accessible way at your preferred to-go location in Amsterdam.
You do not have to go to a medical doctor, to a mental health care institution or be added to a long waiting list. You will get help where and when you prefer it. To reduce and prevent complaints.
