Wahnsinnswoche 2023:26

In dieser Woche 218 Patientenkontakte und 12 Terminausfälle.

Sie erreichen mich telefonisch am Montag und am Donnerstag zwischen 14:30 und 15 Uhr. Da ich keine Psychotherapie anbiete und in den nächsten 12-16 Wochen ausgebucht bin, bitte ich von Terminanfragen abzusehen.

Nur wenn Sie in Wuppertal wohnen, können Sie in dringenden Notfällen derzeit noch ohne Terminvereinbarung in die offene Sprechstunde kommen – bei anhaltender Überlastung behalte ich mir aber vor, diesen Service in den nächsten Wochen einzuschränken. Außerdem wurde die Neupatientenregelung zum 1.1.2023 abgeschafft – ich werde aber erst Ende Juli erfahren, was das für mich bedeutet. Möglicherweise muss ich daher mein Angebot im Sommer 2023 ersatzlos streichen.
