Doctor’s offices for ambulant psychotherapy

In the district of Kleve, there are psychotherapists who offer therapeutic help in their own doctor’s office for children, adolescents and adults who are or were victims of domestic violence - as well as children- and adolescent psychotherapists working exclusively for children and adolescents. The costs for therapies are usually taken over by the health insurance companies.

The different psychotherapeutic measures are important for those affected. Psychotherapy can help, among other things, learn to resist emotional, physical or sexual assaults, and, if necessary, to break away from harmful relationships. The protection of possibly affected children is always at the forefront. Psychotherapy can also help to heal the mental injuries of experienced violence.

With this topic, therapists are continually informing themselves about violence, their effects and possible aids, and are often networked with other counseling-, therapy- and aid institutions.

Psychotherapies often run over an extended period of time. This often results in a more or less long waiting period for a therapy center, which can be asked in practice in individual cases.

Usually the doctors, clinics or counseling centers in the district have addresses. They are also found - always up-to-date - on the Internet pages of the Kassenärztlichen Vereinigung, the Psychotherapeutic Chamber and the trauma therapeutists.
