The fees for psychological and psychotherapeutic services are based on the calculation base of the Swiss Psychologist professional association (Berufsverband der Schweizer Psychologinnen und Psychologen). The charge for one session (60 min. of conversation and 5 min. of preparation and follow-up) is CHF 150.
Rates below the standard rate are possible for patients with a low income upon consultation. Please note that I reserve the respective session time. If this is not cancelled 24 hours in advance, I will bill for one hour.
How much does the health insurance contribute? My trauma therapy is currently not included in the benefits catalog of the Swiss basic or complementary health insurance.
If your psychological symptoms are related to an accident, the accident insurance will assume the costs for an outpatient psychotherapeutic treatment.
If you have been the victim of a crime and your psychological symptoms are related to it, you can file an application with your Swiss cantonal association for helping victims to have it assume the therapy costs.
