What are the disadvantages with a private practice psychologist?

The disadvantage of a private psychologist is that you have to cover the costs of the treatment yourself, unless you or your employer have health insurance. The vast majority of standard health insurance policies cover 10 therapy hours with a private psychologist.

Many employers have health insurance for their employees. In some cases, an employer can also cover the costs of therapy outside of health insurance plans.
