Cost and length
The cost of psychoanalytic treatment is fully covered by the statutory german health insurance, as well as most private health insurance companies.
Length of treatment varies. While time-Limited dynamic therapy limits treatment to 30 sessions, full-fledged psychoanalysis generally lasts up to 300 sessions. The optimal treatment length depends on the individual‘s needs.
