English Speaking Child Psychiatrist

Hello, I am desperately seeking an English speaking child psychiatrist, preferably a woman, for my 13 year old daughter between the Lausanne and Aigle areas. We have a critical issue and I really am trying to avoid the urgent care hospital if possible. Thank you for your help!

Re: English Speaking Child Psychiatrist

Have you tried contacting Les Toises in Lausanne? http://www.lestoises.ch/?lang=en

They provide psychiatric care to adults and children in many languages, including English. It is a large centre so I imagine they would be able to find you a female doctor if that is what you prefer. They also provide crisis support if that is what your daughter needs.

Your daughter may be seen by a psychiatrist or she may be seen by a psychiatrist for an assessment and then by a psychologist working under a psychiatrist for follow up appointments. In both cases treatment will be covered by your health insurance. If paying up front is an issue (if you are with Assura for example) you might be able to arrange a "cession de creance", which is a document which allows Les Toises to bill your health insurance directly, even if you normally have to pay your medical bills and then get reimbursed. Of course you will have to pay your franchise.

I was treated at Les Toises for several years and was very happy with the treatment I received.

I second this advice. Les Toises offer excellent care, in a variety of languages. And they normally can make an appointment at pretty short notice
