Psychologist Oslo? 

Few google searches than just "psychologist Oslo" means greater hope but also occasional desperation, doubt, uncertainty and other demanding emotions. We know how it is and have heard most things before. We welcome you with open arms no matter what the problem is. In addition to being solid professionals, we are also a bunch of steady, wise and pleasant people. We focus on what is important to you and take an active part in the collaboration to solve your challenges. Come as you are. The rest we find out together. 

 In the video below, our psychologist, Ivar Goksøyr, introduces you to Psykologvirke and gives you some clue as to what it is like to go to a psychologist with us.

Frequently Asked Questions

A good psychologist will help you understand what is happening to you and why. Such sorting in the chaos is in itself helpful. A good psychologist also helps you regain security and confidence in yourself - and other people. The best psychologists are those who understand where you are, can read you on different levels, and who naturally help you to take the next step in your particular development. Our psychologists will never judge you. They understand that a judge is simply not understood. Therefore, we try to understand, discover who you are, what forces oppose you, and help you live out your natural design.
It's nice to be able to talk to an outsider. One who does not judge. Which you do not have to protect and pay attention to. A place where you can talk freely. Where you can be - without being alone. It's also nice to talk to someone who actually has a clue about psychology. Which not only comes with well-meaning, but a little superficial encouragement and advice. Being actually seen and understood in the deeper layers - and few tools and ways of thinking that help - is a great and rare gift for many of us. A psychologist can be an important partner out of acute crises. One that can help you sort when you are overwhelmed. All the psychologists at Psyologvirke have been out one winter night before. We have also helped countless others over time. We know a little about how it is. And we are sure that no textbooks in psychology need to be rewritten after you have been here.
It is common to be unsure whether one really should or needs to go to a psychologist. Of course, there is no definitive answer to this. When you yourself feel for it, or are curious about it perhaps? With us, no problems are too big and no one too small. Come as you are, and we'll take it from there. If you are very unsure whether it is right for you to go to a psychologist now, this is something we can discuss openly in the first hour, only. If you're afraid that the psychologist will judge you, that your problems will not be important enough, that you will not waste anyone's time or that you do not want to bother anyone - then there are surefire signs that you should take a trip 🙂
Our prices vary based on the type of hour you are looking for. A single hour costs NOK 1480 during the day and NOK 1690 for the evening (after 15:30). The price of a full treatment by a psychologist depends on both the hourly rate and the total duration of treatment. Few clinics have as great a focus as us on continuous professional development and we are trained to work as efficiently as possible. At the same time, we give time to the processes that will take time. An analysis of the top five hits on organic searches for a psychologist in Oslo shows an average price for a single hour during the day of NOK 1474, - If you want an hour for a psychologist in the evening or weekend, you must expect the price to increase by a couple of hundred kroner. Most also offer cheaper double hours, measured in costs per hour at least. Psychologists who offer intensive short-term psychodynamic therapy (ISTDP) are also happy to offer block hours (3 clock hours). This is an offer that is suitable especially if you have a long journey or want to get started faster. The total cost of course depends on how many hours you need. This is very individual and something you can ask your psychologist to consider during the very first meetings.
You can easily book an appointment via the website. You can choose between filling out a contact form and being assigned a psychologist, or reading about the various psychologists and choosing for yourself. Online appointment booking is done in a few quick minutes. You are also welcome at any time to send us an email with inquiries on Psykologvirke.no
Whether to choose a public or private psychologist is a question of mainly three things: how long you can afford to wait, how much you are able to pay and whether you will be granted a public offer at all. A public psychologist is considerably cheaper, but has a longer waiting time, stricter admission criteria and several framework restrictions. With a private psychologist, you get started quickly before the problems develop further, and you are much freer in terms of treatment frequency and length. With a private psychologist, you do not need a referral from a doctor either.
At Psykologvirke, no referral is required. You can book an appointment directly via our online appointment or fill out the contact form. The downside is that you have to pay for it yourself. In return, you get started quickly and you go straight to an experienced specialist. If you can not afford to pay yourself, nor do you have health insurance, you can contact your GP and ask for an assessment by a public psychologist. He will then be able to write a reference.
