Dr. med. Claudia M. Elsig
Medical Specialist for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy
Founder and Medical Overall Management
My name is Dr. med. Claudia M. Elsig. I am the Founder and Medical Director of the CALDA Clinic. The demands I place on myself and my work are the highest level of professionalism paired with authenticity and efficiency. With more than 20 years of professional experience, I possess in-depth knowledge in the field of psychiatric and psychotherapeutic medicine. I completed my studies at the Medical Faculty of the University of Zurich,
before going on to complete different training programmes within the field of progressive, evidence-based, psychotherapeutic methods over the course of many years. Following this, I specialised in psychotraumatology. After developing a deep interest in the consequences of mental and physical trauma and chronic stress such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), addiction, borderline personality disorder, depression and eating disorder, I wanted to help these people individually, holistically and long term. On my path to becoming a multi-specialist, I sought out the best mentors in Europe in the fields of behavioural therapy, hypnosis, EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), orthomolecular medicine, genetics and genetic consulting, with a focus on addiction, depression and anxiety disorders.
For years, I was in charge of the special consultation for clinical hypnosis at a private clinic in Zurich. In recent years, I have acquired in-depth knowledge about all kinds of addictions and their consequences. I founded the CALDA AG in 2004 and developed a separate integrative treatment concept for psychological illnesses. Today, I manage the CALDA Clinic for stationary clients by Lake Zurich and a psychiatric-psychotherapeutic practice for outpatient clients in Zollikon.
