Dr. Roger Bühler, MD, MIH, DCHyp

Hypnotherapist and Family Physician

Portrait_Roger_kl My personal approach to therapy is a holistic approach whereby multiple psychological, social and biological factors are interlinked and all play an important role in causing symptoms of disease. Using such a biopsychosocial model as the foundation of all therapy work, helps me to understand the connections among all the issues I find in my patients, for example how a somatic problem can cause mental problems or psychological disorders can cause physical symptoms (for example chronic stress as part of the cause in gastric ulcers or migraines).
