Mental training and sports psychology

A high level of professional and athletic performance is not only based on technical and physical capabilities; psychological factors also play a decisive role. Mental training can help you to achieve your goals in sport and/or your profession and to manage challenging situations with confidence. We offer support and advice in the fields of mental training and sports psychology.

Crisis counselling and psychotherapy

People experience crises for a variety of reasons, not only because of distressing life events, such as bereavement or separation. It is often difficult situations in everyday life which can lead to a crisis; for example, pressure to perform and meet objectives, or a general feeling of dissatisfaction and unfulfilled needs. We offer professional psychological counselling and psychotherapy to people in stressful situations and crises.

Sensory

For our research and studies, we are always looking for motivated consumers who would like to contribute to the development of products by offering their opinions and suggestions. This involves taking part in taste tests at our sensory laboratory in Wädenswil.
