If during the probatory sessions or short-term therapy your therapist determines that you require long-term therapy, you can apply for long-term therapy together with your therapist. The maximum allocation of hours that SBK can approve depends on the form of therapy.
The following allocations apply for the initial application:
Behavioural therapy: 60 hours
Psychodynamic therapy: 60 hours
Analytic psychotherapy: 160 hours
If required, your therapist can request another extension. The following upper limits apply for the three forms of therapy for adults:
Behavioural therapy: 80 hours
Psychodynamic therapy: 100 hours
Analytic psychotherapy: 300 hours
Different maximum allocations apply for children and young people. Please contact your personal consultant for more information on this.
