— the impact of emotional pain

Symptoms and effects of trauma

When we experience trauma, either in childhood or adult life, it can have a lasting impact on our wellbeing. Symptoms may remain hidden but can surface later through addiction or emotional issues. It often manifests physically as well as emotionally. The physical signs can be as substantial and alarming as those of physical injury or illness, and care should be taken to control stress levels.

The most common symptoms of trauma

  1. shock, denial, or disbelief
  2. confusion, difficulty concentrating
  3. guilt, shame, self-blame
  4. withdrawing from others
  5. sleeping disorders



We provide the very best care and comfort. Our fees are typically between CHF 80,000 – CHF 120,000 per week, depending on the requirements of the individual client. Fees are settled directly by the client (we do not work with insurance companies) and we can supply written quotations upon request.

The Kusnacht Practice services are not covered by Swiss health insurances. All costs are to be covered directly by the clients. Patients who are domiciled in Switzerland and are therefore mandatorily health insured may be reimbursed by their health insurance for medical services in accordance with the Federal Law on Health Insurance (KVG) and its implementing provisions.

“I struggled with emotional issues and alcoholism for many years. I initially had no idea that my experiences in childhood were a contributory factor to the problems that I faced.”
