Connect, Empower, Support

Welcome! Dr. Patricia Vriesendorp, Dr. Elizabeth Frei, and Stéphanie Goffaux are English-speaking psychologists working in Biel/Bienne. We are a group of independent mental health practitioners who operate under the umbrella of c2. We started C2 in order to address the need for English-speaking support services in Switzerland.

We hope to empower non-native residents by providing a platform for them to connect and find support in English. We also work to support English-speaking mental health professionals, who can also suffer from isolation that ultimately affects the care that they can offer their clients.

Having more support lays the groundwork for better mental healthcare and a sense of belonging that improves the quality of life for non-native Swiss residents.

We hope you might attend a workshop, learn mindfulness, receive a soothing massage, stop by for a meditation group, join the women’s group or simply use C2 as a bridge to your life here in Switzerland.

Please bear in mind that each practitioner at c2 is responsible for their own practice and holds their own liability insurance. We each abide by the ethics of our individual professional regulatory organizations (for example, Federation of Swiss Psychologists) and have signed the c2 Charta that further outlines expectations around professional practice. If you have any questions or would like to share feedback, please contact us at

Tell us your story!

Our mission at C2 is to cultivate a platform to connect, support and empower non-native residents of Switzerland.

We would love to hear about your experience so we can offer you workshops and other services that will support your well-being and adjustment to life in Switzerland. We left the questions very open so feel free to write as much or as little as you’d like. Please note that this survey is anonymous, unless you’d like to leave your name and email address so that we can follow up with you with any questions you might have.
