Colette Jansen Estermann Ph.D.


With the process of globalization, worldwide migration has also increased. In Switzerland, the percentage of foreigners is now over 20% of the resident population. I like to work with people from other cultures with great interest. In doing so, I can use my intercultural skills, which I have acquired thanks to my life between cultures.

My work as a psychotherapist, group leader or coach is always about encounters that can trigger a change or release a learning process. I experience the encounter with people from a foreign culture as a challenge and enrichment, from which both sides can grow. My specialties therefore include intercultural communication, intercultural Gestalt therapy and intercultural coaching.

Psychotherapy in La Paz:

A special project close to my heart.

Bolivia is the poorest country in South America. The Gestalt therapists in La Paz, whom I trained according to the criteria of the EAGT (European Association of Gestalt Therapy), work with great commitment, but for an extremely small financial contribution, with people from the lower class. In Bolivia there is no health insurance or other insurances for needy people. Therefore, this project depends on your support.

Thank you very much for your donation to bank account CH 27 0077 8194 1305 2200 1 of the Luzerner Kantonalbank and me as the holder, with reference “Bolivia”.

There is always a reason for gratitude.
