Our approach

  • Interdisciplinary care

    Following your diagnosis of a patient and once our treatment plan is in place, we will get in touch to discuss the next steps. We guarantee seamless collaboration between yourself as a specialist and our organisation.

  • Easy access

    We offer patients video consultations upon request. These are supplemented by traditional face-to-face sessions at our locations in Zurich, Bern, Winterthur and Basel.

  • Our work is evidence-based

    Our range of therapies is based exclusively on evidence-based therapy methods. We are convinced that additional evaluations and data enable us to optimally adapt our approach to the needs of our patients, offering them the best possible results from therapy.
