THERAPISTS, COUNSELLORS OR COACHES come from different backgrounds, nursing, social work, physiotherapy and also completely unrelated fields. Only some of them are also psychotherapists. For your protection, you need to check whether they are certified by a recognized association and authorized to practice as such locally. Some of them are reimbursed by complementary insurances.

In Switzerland, anyone who handles your health is meant to request and obtain the authorization to practice by the canton’s Health Department.
