Are you going through a difficult time in your life? Are you worried about your relationship, children and/or work? Or do you have questions about your mental and/or emotional health? Are you following the advice of your doctor, a relative or a friend, or are you looking on your own for a psychologist/psychotherapist in order to discuss your concerns or to start up counselling or a therapy process?  You then can apply to PsychologenAssociatie.
