The purpose of psychotherapy is to provide support when you’ve been feeling unwell for a long time, struggling in daily life and relationships. That’s when you need sustained support to find and establish new, more effective ways of being and doing.

The story of Goldilocks might be familiar to you, right? In the tale, Goldilocks wanders into the bears’ house and tests out chairs, porridge, and beds. One is too big, another too hard or too hot. Until finally, she finds one that’s just right.

The same idea applies in therapy. The severity of the problem or challenge is crucial to determining the type of help you or your loved one needs. Below, we explain the difference between psychotherapy and short-term therapy – and who they are suitable for.

How much does psychotherapy cost?

Various paths to psychotherapy

You have the option to pay for a psychotherapy session (like short-term psychotherapy) yourself, or you can start psychotherapy with your own funds before deciding on Kela’s subsidized rehabilitation psychotherapy. If you’re approved for rehabilitation psychotherapy, Kela covers €57.60 per session.

Additionally, we offer high-quality training psychotherapy starting at 59€ for a 45-minute session. This therapy is conducted by psychotherapy students under intensive supervision, often with a background in psychology.
