Cognitive psychotherapy and individual conversations.

Noaks Ark offers practical, emotional, and informational support. This is for you who are living with HIV and your close relatives and friends. It is also for you who need to talk and receive information about HIV. We who work here have the right education and have many years of experience.

Cognitive behavioral therapy

Do you need help understanding or dealing with your problems? Living with HIV can mean an increased vulnerability to suffering from depression, anxiety, and relationship problems. Cognitive psychotherapy and behavioral therapy (CBT) can be a way of finding balance in your life.

Cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy are based on your thoughts, feelings, and actions. You receive help in understanding the connection between them. The method is an established form of treatment for e.g. depression, anxiety, attachment, and relationship problems. 

Noaks Ark has educated therapists who have extensive knowledge of HIV and many years of experience working with HIV-related issues. In addition to the care given at the infection clinics in Stockholm County, we offer psychotherapy for a limited time at no cost for people living with HIV and for people more likely to get an HIV infection.

Psychotherapy over the Internet

Noaks Ark Stockholm collaborates with Per Åkefeldt, specialist in psychiatry, who runs a psychiatric clinic in Old Town in Stockholm. Per has a collaboration agreement with the region, which means that you as a patient pay SEK 350/visit. If you reach the sum for the high-cost protection of SEK 1,150, that gives you a free pass for the rest of the year.
