How does psychological help work on Sint Maarten?
Most of the time you get referred by your housedoctor to a psychologist. You can also contact a psychologist yourself if you want to. When you go to a psychologist first you will have an intake. In this first meeting you will get to know the psychologist and have an in depth conversation about the reason you decided to reach out. Together you make a treatment plan that fits your needs and then treatments starts. Most of the time these are weekly sessions. How long and how many depends on the individual situation.
