What's special about the Paris Psychology Centre?
Fully registered clinical psychologists
Unlike in many services, every member of our team is a clinical psychologist or neuropsychologist (not a counsellor, life coach, natural therapist, etc.) with at least six years of training in treatment and research. This includes more than two years of supervised training. All our psychologists are registered to practise in France (and usually in some other jurisdiction as well).
We have experience living abroad, just like you
Additionally, we have all had significant life experience studying, living and working in countries
around the world, and helping people in this situation achieve balanced, happy lives. We're used
to helping people who are leading a life away from home, including expats, trailing spouses,
creatives, digital nomads, third-culture kids, international students, au pairs and interns.
Only evidence-based treatments that really work
We specialise in providing treatments based on the latest research, which have been scientifically validated to improve emotional wellbeing and resilience. This means that you can be confident that
your time spent in therapy will be worthwhile.
Our services in a nutshell...
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Neurodegenerative diseases (such as Alzheimer’s)
Dyslexia and dyscalculia
Traumatic brain injury
Depression, bipolar and other mental disorders
Diagnosis and assessment
We can provide diagnosis of mental and neurological disorders and assess cognitive difficulties in adults and children. These might include problems such as:
Detailed reports to suit your needs
We can provide detailed neuropsychological reports of legal standing for patients, doctors, schools, lawyers, insurance, employers and other institutions.
Strategies to help you manage
We offer cognitive remediation and therapy to help people cope with cognitive changes and make healthy adjustments to the way they do things.
Treatment you can count on
Our psychologists are all trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which is the gold-standard treatment for the most common psychological issues such as anxiety and depression. Members of our team also have specialist training in other proven modalities such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and mindfulness.
An approach that's personalised to you
In individual therapy, treatment can be tailored to your particular needs. You might need strategies to deal with an emotional problem, or you might just want a confidant and port in a storm. Or someone to soundboard and hash out ideas. Or a coach and ally to help whip you into shape. We’d like to offer whatever it is you need to reach your potential and get back to loving life.
And you don't need to be in therapy forever
Most of the treatment modalities we use have been demonstrated to be effective over a short period of time, with an average length of around 10-12 weekly sessions. Read more...
Fees, payment and insurance
How much does a session cost?
Our standard fee per therapy session is 140€. Most people have weekly sessions, but less regular sessions are also possible, and just as effective in the long run. Session length is 50 minutes. If you need support but are experiencing financial hardship, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org – we have a certain number of sessions available for low-income patients.
What about neuropsychological assessment?
The fee for neuropsychological assessment depends on the complexity of the assessment and the report required. The price range for assessment is generally between 500€-1000€. For instance, a WISC assessment is 600€.
How do I pay for sessions?
We accept payment by credit card or cash at the end of each in-person session. For online payments, a link will be sent to pay via credit card after the session. Direct deposit via bank transfer is also possible. We do not accept cheque.
Will my insurance cover the sessions?
Many of our patients have their sessions reimbursed with private insurance (mutuelle). The level of reimbursement depends on your specific contract. So if you have an insurer, it might be worth getting in touch with them to see what you’re entitled to. We are happy to provide any documentation you might need to facilitate this process. Some of the insurers we currently work with include:
Can I use my carte vitale?
Unfortunately, psychology sessions are not covered under the government health (carte vitale) system in France. We're hoping the French government introduces legislation to recognise the importance of psychological services, in line with the practices of many other developed nations.
