As a FSP specialised psychologist and psychotherapist we first have to complete a Masters degree in Psychology. In Switzerland, the title “psychologist” is today legally protected by the LPsy. After this degree, a psychologist must then train for at least five years to become a psychotherapist. The training means working under the supervision of more experienced colleagues, having relevant experience in counselling and psychotherapy, following treatment as a patient yourself.
This is a brief summary of my career path:
Masters degree in Clinical Psychology at the University of Lausanne.
Postgraduate psychological psychotherapy training in Cognitive Behaviour Pychotherapy (CBT) and Positive Psychology.
Clinical practice as a psychologist and psychotherapist in a social institution and private practices.
Post graduate studies in Positive Psychology (CAS).
Working with children, adolescents, adults and their families allowed me to acquire a plethora of humanistic tools, while developing my practice as a psychotherapist. This is combined with a clinical CBT training helps me to mix many different techniques, tools, models and theories so as to stay flexible and adapt myself to your needs.
About five years ago, I became interested in relationships, specifically the issues of toxic relationships through manipulation (narcissistic perversion) and its consequences. At around the same time, I started specializing in Schema Therapy. More recently, I completed post graduate training in Positive Psychology, furthering my knowledge, tools and concepts as to help my patients with well-being and flourishing after trauma.
