Search for Hypnosis Consultation

Consultations in clinical hypnosis offered at the HUG are intended for patients who were, are or will be monitored at the HUG.Requests can be sent to the Administrative Office for the HUG Hypnosis Program via email or by phone (Ms. Dominique Girardin, 022 372 5577, between 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.). Please provide the following information: last name, first name, date of birth; problem, reason for the request for consultation; contact info (tel. no.).

Typically, the first consultation is a checkup (discussion, definition of expectations and objectives, confirmation of the usefulness of treatment with hypnosis, etc.) carried out by a doctor or a psychologist. Following this checkup, the patient will be cared for by the same practitioner, by another HUG practitioner or possibly referred to a practitioner outside of the HUG.

Other patients are invited to contact a hypnotherapist outside of the HUG.

Among the many therapists practicing hypnosis in the city, we specifically work with the following therapists. All are certified by the French-speaking Swiss Institute of Hypnosis (IRHyS) and can be contacted to request a consultation.
