Luxury Private Therapy Services

At Paracelsus Recovery, our exclusive programmes are founded on empathy, care and pragmatism. We believe that addiction and mental ill-health affects the whole person – mind, body and soul. For example, emotional stress takes a toll on our body and conversely our physical health has an impact on our mental health. We therefore put the mind-body relationship at the forefront of our private therapy programmes.

Types of therapy

In Zurich and London, a team of experienced clinicians and therapists work with one client at a time to provide an individually structured and intensive treatment programme. We provide a number of therapies based on individual needs including psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR), psychoeducation and mindfulness therapy. Complementary therapies and wellness activities include yoga, massage, reflexology, acupuncture and personal training.

A specialist psychiatrist will work closely with the therapy team to ensure that each client receives the most effective treatment possible for their psychological wellbeing and emotional health. At the start of a programme, we carry out an in-depth assessment, make diagnoses, recommend and manage any medication or supplements and work with the core therapy team to develop an individualised treatment plan to assist recovery.

In one-to-one one sessions, our team will help the client overcome any underlying trauma, negative thinking patterns or unresolved issues that may be contributing to their mental health difficulties or addiction. Our team is highly skilled in the most up-to-date and internationally recognised therapeutic techniques and complementary therapies, providing unparalleled treatment.

At Paracelsus Recovery, we will customise each private therapy and clinical programme based on the client’s needs, availability and wishes. With each programme, we interweave different aspects of the core and complementary therapies, providing the most in-depth treatment possible. You can learn more about our treatment programmes here.


We also provide aftercare, a comprehensive health assessment, an executive detox programme and intervention services at an additional cost.

The cost of treatment varies depending on the service required. You can learn about our prices and fees here.
