Why do psychologists like working with nilo.health?

The three main reasons our psychologists love working with us are flexibility, variety and our mission. Our psychologists freely choose when and where they wish to work, and they have a large variety of clients and topics. This is very different from more typical settings within a company or practice. Finally, all of our psychologists are committed to destigmatizing mental health and making health support easily accessible to everyone.

If a psychologist is offering a session in the near future, does that mean they are less qualified than the “good” experts who are already booked up?

No, every psychologist on the nilo.health platform is very experienced and offers high quality sessions. Availability has nothing to do with experience or qualifications and sometimes psychologists need to change their calendar on short notice.

How do nilo.health psychologists help if a client’s issues are more severe and require longterm psychotherapy treatment?

In more severe cases, our psychologists guide, educate and motivate each client to find the way into the right longterm therapy. We also offer a therapy wiki on our platform, which supports clients finding psychotherapy in Germany.

How are nilo.sessions different from psychotherapy?
