I offer individual therapy for adults. I specialise in affective disorders (depression, bipolar disorder, dysthymia, cyclothymia…), anxiety disorders (generalised anxiety, health anxiety, phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder…), intrapersonal difficulties (self-esteem, decision-making, problem-solving, habits…), interpersonal difficulties (in intimate relationships, family, at work, personality disorders…), and recovery from traumatic experiences (post-traumatic stress disorder, acute stress disorder…). I also have experience treating psychological difficulties typical among the expat population.

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist in Great Britain and a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS), the Czech Society for Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (ČSKBT), and the European Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Therapies (EABCT). I hold a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the Institute of Psychiatry (IoP, King’s College London I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR). I also use the Schema Therapy model. I have worked over 18 years in public health (British NHS), at six universities, and in private practice in Prague.

My therapeutic style is open, empathic, and non-judgemental. I offer a safe environment, active listening, and gentle confrontation. I encourage the client to uncover their own biases and strengths, to self-reflect, to explore their values and priorities, to reach their own conclusions, and to plan their future consciously. I follow the client’s pace and provide structure and continuity within and between sessions. I always remain open to the client’s feedback so as to continuously adapt the therapeutic process to their needs.

I am myself an expat. I was born (1973) and raised in Spain. I have lived in various European countries. I have travelled widely, experiencing diverse ways of living and thinking. Life has often challenged me and I have learnt to see these challenges as opportunities to grow and widen my understanding of the world and of human nature. I devote my free time to socialising, cooking, reading, writing, yoga, meditation, film and music.
