History of Our Practice

The Practice at Spalentor was founded in 2001 and offers evidence-based psychotherapy and counselling for a wide range of issues and disorders. Each member of our team is highly experienced, has undertaken rigorous training and is registered and accredited by the Swiss Federation of Psychotherapy.

The Practice at Spalentor was founded in 2001 by Lukas Richterich, Vreni Richterich, Ruth Müllejans and Sabine Hefti. Gertrud Breitinger joined the practice in 2014, Judith Blatter-Meunier joined 2017 and Marina Poppinger in 2018.

Ruth Müllejans sadly passed away in October 2016.

Lukas Richterich left the team in 2018 due to retirement from his work as psychotherapist, but remains closely connected to the practice.

Gertrud Breitinger left in October 2018 to found her own practice in Basel.

For over fifteen years, our practice has stood for high-quality psychotherapy based on the current state-of-the-art in scientific psychotherapy research.

We regularly exchange information about our work and reflect together on the development of our field.

We have long been involved in the higher education of future colleagues, working as board members and teaching staff of the «Postgradualen Studiengänge in Psychotherapie» at the University of Basel, as well as providing supervision and self-experience to trainee counsellors.

With the «Junior Partner Project», we created the opportunity for young colleagues to experience working as self-employed professional psychotherapists.

We are in close contact with universities and providers of training programmes, as well as other psychotherapy practices.
