At the Lucerne location, we will expand our services as of June 2023 and offer psychotherapy and psychological counseling for children, adolescents, parents and families. We are pleased to count Alexandra Blum (psychologist and federally recognized psychotherapist, additional training in emergency psychology), an experienced psychologist to our team and wish her a good start with us. Ms. Blum will offer appointments in our practice on Tuesdays from 9 AM to 5 PM.
The offer of psychotherapeutic consultation hours does not include test psychological clarifications. Should this become necessary in the course of the treatment, the patients will be referred to appropriate external institutions (e.g. outpatient child and adolescent psychiatry).
Psychotherapeutic support and counseling is adapted to the individual family situation. After an initial consultation, we decide together who, when, how often to come to the practice. There is the possibility for family discussions, parent discussions and also individual sessions with the children and adolescents. Depending on the topic, other important caregivers, therapists and people from the school environment can also be involved, of course only with the consent of the family and in compliance with the duty of confidentiality.
The offer includes both shorter consultations as well as longer lasting therapeutic support.
Possible topics can be, for example:
Fears, phobias and compulsions
Difficulties within the family
Difficulties at school
Problems with peers
Sadness, depression, suicidal thoughts
Sleep disturbances and nightmares
Difficulties or behavioral changes after experiencing exceptional situations
Attention deficit disorder (ADD, ADHD)
Aggression and conspicuous behavior
We do not currently offer this service at the other locations. Please ask your pediatrician about consultation hours with other service providers.
