Practice of Marlise Bachmann

I am a certified psychologist-psychotherapist FSP recognized on federal level since 2005.

My basic training as a psychologist is in the systemic approach, which I have subsequently enriched with a wide range of different approaches such as brief therapy, Imago relational therapy, Voice Dialogue, meditation, emotional regulation and sexuality among others.

Insurance reimbursement

Registered as a Psychologist-Psychotherapist FSP on the list of SANTÉ-SUISSE, the sessions are partially reimbursed by the complementary insurances. Check with your insurance company to find out how you are covered for individual and couple therapy and if you need a doctor’s prescription. The date of the prescription will prevail for the refund. Receipts are issued at the end of the month. The Swiss Federation of Psychologists (FSP) provides a list of insurances that cover this type of reimbursement.


As a Psychologist-Psychotherapist, I cannot prescribe medication. However, if it is necessary to introduce a treatment, I can, with your agreement, contact your general practitioner in order to coordinate our care as well as possible or advise you on a psychiatrist who can help you find the appropriate medication by networking with me.

Individual Therapy

In individual therapies, I like to set the goals with my client and adapt the pace of the follow-up and my tools to the client’s needs.

Couple Therapy

I welcome couples with all kinds of problems, sometimes for only one session or for several sessions, sometimes for a long-term follow-up, depending on your needs. These are personalized sessions where you will discover practical means in a way that is adapted to your current couple situation. I do also help couples to separate in conscious and respectful way. As a basic tool, I allow you to discover the Imago approach and, depending on the situation, I enrich the follow-up with other various tools.

Workshop for couples

A workshop allows you to develop and enrich your relationship. It is an excellent introduction to familiarize yourself with Imago or an ideal complement to practice what you have learned in your private sessions. You will receive information on how relationships work and why you sometimes struggle, as well as many opportunities to practice your communication with your partner. It can also be helpful to decide wether you’d like to continue your path together or not.

You can also get involved in both a therapy and a workshop, they will enrich each other or you can choose the one that suits you best.

The workshop is given in French, but you can ask for a support in English and are allowed to speak in your own language to each other during the practices.
