Psychotherapy services

Many people suffer from insomnia, concentration difficulties, fatigue and irritability. These are problems which may impair everyday life. But there is help available. Mental health problems such as depression, anxiety and panic disorders are very common. They can, however, be treated efficiently and at a reasonable price through psychotherapy.

At Diacor’s psychotherapy unit on Alppikatu, our treatments are based on Current Care Guidelines. This is a recommended form of psychotherapy which is scientifically proven to be effective.

Our psychotherapists are experienced healthcare professionals. All of them are registered by the National Supervisory Authority for Welfare and Health and the Finnish Social Insurance Institution (Kela). They are familiar with many forms of psychotherapy, such as cognitive, cognitive analytic, psychodynamic and integrative psychotherapy, crisis and trauma therapy, and solution and resource-oriented psychotherapy.

Both occupational healthcare customers and private customers are welcome at our psychotherapy unit. The treatment can be paid for by the customer him- or herself or by the Social Insurance Institution (Kela), the employer, a medical insurance or a pension insurance company.


Instructions

Psychotherapist services are intended for both private customers and occupational healthcare customers.

Private customers

You can book an appointment online (Choose service: Psychotherapist) or by calling (09) 7750 800. You can also ask for more information by sending us email: psykoterapia@diacor.fi.

Occupational healthcare customers

If your occupational healthcare covers psychotherapy, you need to be assessed by your occupational physician or by a psychiatrist before you can start psychotherapy. When the assessment has been made, our psychotherapy unit will contact you within 1-3 weekdays to schedule an appointment.
