Recommendation of psychologist / therapist in the Geneva / Vaud region

Hello,

I am seeking a recommendation of a good psychologist / therapist in the Geneva / Vaud (close to Nyon) region. Must be very good/native English speaker, and have experience of treating depression and anxiety. Ideally someone familiar with CBT (Cognitive behavioral therapy)
No preference regarding gender.

I've found plenty of people listed on doctor.ch and other sites, but of course there is no way to judge their quality. Obviously other people's judgement about someone 'good' will be very subjective, but any experience one way or other would be useful.

Many thanks for any help people can offer.

[Posting this under an new identity for I hope understandably reasons).

From personal experience I can recommend the Clinique La Métairie in Nyon. Very good facility and expert staff.

If you need a psychiatrist/physco-anlayst try Catherine Forsyth-Fisk who I had very good experience with.

Good luck!

I know a psychologist who has a lot of experience dealing with depression. I cant comment on her work since I'm not her patient, but I know her personally; she is buddhist and her studies and practice are influenced by buddhism, which to me is quite interesting.
If you want, I can pass you her contact.

Are psychologists covered by basic insurance? Or does it have to be a psychiatrist (MD)? If so do you need a referral from a Dr to see a psychologist or can you self-refer (standard insurance assumed).

Only psychiatrists are covered. From my experience, many psychologists work for a psychiatrist's office who receives and delegate patients. Bills and prescriptions are issued by the psychiatrist, and covered by insurance.
