You have come to the right place for online mental health help

Are you walking around with a possible anxiety disorder or depression? Then it is wise to seek professional help. While it is nice that there are several therapies and many therapy practices and institutions today, this can also make making a choice very difficult.

GGZonline is one of the institutions that is happy to help you. We offer our care completely online, how does the treatment process work with us and what are the benefits of GGZonline? We are happy to tell you.

How does the treatment process work?

To be helped by GGZonline, you can apply yourself, but this can also be done by a family doctor. After registration, an initial appointment will be scheduled, for which you will complete a questionnaire in advance. After the first appointment, the diagnosis is made. Then the actual treatment can be started. This may involve treatment through cognitive behavioral therapy. If necessary, EMDR may also be used.

Both cognitive behavioral therapy and EMDR can both be delivered online. With the same quality and effectiveness as offline therapy.

What is cognitive behavioral therapy?

Cognitive behavioral therapy is a form of therapy that originated in the late 1950s. This therapy focuses primarily on the client’s thoughts, memories, fantasies and beliefs about a specific event. This is also summed up in the word “cognitions.

In fact, according to cognitive behavioral therapy, it is not the events themselves that make someone feel negatively or that cause a negative pattern of behavior to develop. This is because of the way a person views events. During cognitive behavioral therapy, people are taught to interpret negative thoughts in a different way, which will also make the negative feeling disappear and change the behavioral pattern.

Several treatment techniques are used within cognitive behavioral therapy. Examples include imagining, cognitive restructuring, training, and homework.

What is EMDR?

EMDR was developed in 1989. The acronym stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. The treatment involves thinking back to an unpleasant event that is still troubling the client today. While thinking back, distractions are provided. This distraction may be hearing clicks or seeing movements of the psychologist’s hand. Through the distraction, the unpleasant event causes less and less pain and will evoke a less and less emotional response.

Why online treatment?

We have chosen to have our therapy take place entirely online. This allows us to ensure quality while reaching more people because we are not tied to a particular location. This also saves a lot of travel time and allows us to treat people in their familiar home environment.

Contact takes place online via secure image calling. Webcamconsult is used for image calling. Of course, you will be explained in advance how to use this platform.

Because treatment is provided online, treatments can be followed from the comfort of one’s own home. This will save a lot of travel time and ensure that you can recover in the safety of your own home after treatment where necessary.

Because of the online treatment, there are no unnecessary physical contacts. This is especially valuable at the time of the coronapandemic. This is because it reduces the risk of infection, but it also reduces the number of treatments that need to be cancelled. After all, if you have a cold, you can still just sit behind the laptop without first having a negative test result.

At GGZonline, we offer specialty mental health services.

Intensive and personalized treatment

Our online mental health institution provides appropriate customized treatment, where the psychologists obviously want to achieve the best treatment outcome. For this reason, it is possible to follow an intensive treatment, where an appointment can be made twice a week. At most treatment practices, this is only once.

These treatments can be scheduled not only during the day, but also in the evenings or on weekends. This makes it easier to schedule treatments twice a week and ensures that treatments get in the way of daily life as little as possible.

Because of the more intensive treatment, results will also be seen more quickly. Generally, the entire treatment for an anxiety disorder is completed in two to four months. Treatment for depression lasts four to six months.
