Welshop – direct psychological help online
Are you ever sad or anxious? Do you find it difficult to find your way through life? We can help you. Through Welshop you can get started quickly with a therapist, psychologist, or coach. On this website you will find online psychological help from various healthcare providers, readily available without a waiting list. You can choose the therapy and the care provider that suits you best.
Good to know
By ordering an online therapy, you are not yet committed to anything. Only after an intake with the healthcare provider of your choice do you decide whether you actually want to start the therapy. Please watch the video of psychologist Naima about online therapy, in which she shares her experience and that of clients.
How to sign-up for a therapy
At Welshop you will find online therapies from various healthcare providers. Usually there is no waiting list for most therapies: you can get started right away. Just make sure you have a referral for Mental Health Care. Some providers have additional requirements for the referral. This is further explained on the page about the treatment you have chosen. It goes like this.
- Choose from the offer as available on this webpage aanbod
- Click on “aanmelden” (submit)
- After you have registered, you will receive a confirmation email at the email address you entered.
- In most cases, the provider of your choice will contact you within a few days to schedule an intake interview. This conversation is also online, with video calling.
Only after the intake interview does your therapy start “officially”. Before or immediately after the intake interview, you can always decide not to seek treatment or elsewhere. You decide that yourself.
What is online therapy?
Online therapy offers the same quality as ‘traditional therapy’, provided by experienced psychologists. You practice and contact your psychologist from your own home or from another location in which you feel comfortable. Through a secure online environment, you can immediately start working on assignments and determine the pace of your therapy together with your practitioner. In the next video, psychologist Tex explains what such a therapy session looks like.
Before the therapy starts, you will make a therapy plan during a personal intake interview with the healthcare provider of your choice. Together you will discuss the approach, working method and contact and evaluation moments. Based on this conversation, you can decide whether you want to start the therapy with the provider of your choice.
