The majority of adults long for a happy and stable relationship. However, the divorce rate in Switzerland is about 40%.
Among other factors, mutual trust and continuously working on the relationship are necessary ingredients for a satisfying relationship. Dysfunctional and negative communication, cheating or adultery, discrepant expectations or sexual difficulties can reduce relationship satisfaction significantly.
Couple counselling can help you to face topics like these. In couple counselling sessions you have the opportunity to talk openly with each other about your needs, wishes and dreams. We provide you with the knowledge and relationship skills to cope with the current situation and to initiate changes.
Couple counselling can also be useful if you have agreed upon a separation or divorce, or if you have already separated. In this case, we focus on finding a feasible and acceptable way forward for each involved party, especially when there are also children who are affected by the separation.
Compulsory health insurance/basic health insurance covers sessions provided by independent psychotherapists or psychologists, as well as by organisations of psychotherapists. A medical prescription is required for this. This is valid for a maximum of 15 sessions. The fee for psychotherapeutic treatment is calculated on a time basis (PsyTarif). To make sure your insurance pays the treatment, ask your family doctor to fill in this form and bring this form with you to your first session.
