Re: Portuguese Psychologist looking for a job in Switzerland

Welcome to the Forum. In my opinion you need to be fluent in one of Switzerland's languages to be able to help your patients. I really do not think you will find a job without excellent French.

Re: Portuguese Psychologist looking for a job in Switzerland

Be carefull though, "Psychologist" is a reglemented profession in Switzerland, which means that you need to get a special authorisation to start to work as a psychologist. You get the permission only if you have a specific diploma.
The cantons are responsible to deliver the authorisations to work.

You could try the UK instead, I'd imagine it would be a better bet for you since you're fluent in English. What makes you choose Switzerland?
