Praxis for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy

Dr. med. Edgar Echegoyen Ramirez in Zurich

Psychiatric and psychotherapeutic support for crises, depression, burnout, anxiety, psychosis and mental problems.

Harmony between body and soul

About me

Psychiatry and psychotherapy practice in Zurich’s District 7

As a psychiatrist and psychotherapist, it is especially important to me not just to address the mind, but also to engage with the relationship between mind and body as a whole. For example, somatic illnesses can have psychological symptoms, and vice versa. Fully understanding my patients and their history is therefore very important to me, as it enables me to engage with their problems in a targeted and sustainable manner.

In my practice, I focus on the correlation between psychotherapeutic and psychiatric treatments, and I offer depth psychology and behavioural therapy interventions, relaxation techniques and pharmacotherapy.

The treatments in my practice are covered by basic health insurance.

Psychiatric treatment and counselling in Zurich

The reasons why people seek out a psychiatric practice are very varied and personal. In my practice, I try to understand my patients and the origins of their problems holistically.
Triggers can vary greatly from person to person. Examples include depressive crises, anxiety, problems at work, psychosis, life crises or psychological and psychosomatic problems. As the triggers are highly variable, so too are the treatment options that I offer in my practice.
