The health magazine Gesundheitstipp has uncovered a psychiatrist in Küssnacht in canton Schwyz who’s offering gay conversion therapy and charging health insurance companies. 
 
The magazine sent in an undercover reporter who was offered the course by Lukas Kiener. He told the man that the process could take two years – and insurance companies will pay. 
 
It’s unlikely the companies are aware of the type of course being offered. 
 
Although the government says conversion therapy is a violation of a medical professionals’ duties, there are moves in parliament to strengthen the law and the gay rights organization Pink Cross is launching a petition to end the practice for good.
