Cognitiva has developed a program for the improvement of young therapists. Colleagues who have passed a sample interview are included in the program. They all meet the legal requirements to practice psychotherapy, possess a bachelor’s and/or master’s degree in psychology, and are in the process of obtaining a diploma for full-fledged psychotherapists. At this stage, three supervised and one psychologist have earned their place among us.

The program aims to provide an opportunity for the development of young specialists in the field, as well as to develop the profession of “psychologist” and “psychotherapist” more generally. Another benefit is that we have the opportunity to support a wider range of customers to receive professional support at more affordable prices.
