About Me

I am a registered Counselling Psychologist. The nature of my practice is mainly humanistic although I implement other techniques as well. Throughout the therapeutic process I apply Gestalt Therapy methodology which enable us to focus on our immediate thoughts, feelings and behaviour and to better understand the way we relate to others. And the techniques that I implement: repair scenes and visualizations, relaxation techniques, narrative techniques, projective techniques (paintings), empty chair, dream work, the Enneagram of personality, etc. Since I am a psychologist as well I also utilise cognitive behavioural techniques (CBT) included third wave (ACT and Compassion Focused Therapy, CFT). Furthermore I have completed a Mindfulness Course based on Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and subsequently I also implement Mindfulness techniques with my clients. Moreover I am an EMDR therapist, consequently I possess experience in working with trauma. I am a very compassionate person, supportive and warm who will help you to deal with the difficulties of life. As I am originally from Spain I offer counselling in Spanish and English. Skype and face to face.
