How I work with clients
The way I practice psychotherapy has been shaped by the different teachings and trainings I received, by the teachers and mentors that accompany me, and also by my own personal therapeutic process and the travels I have done. I understand psychotherapy as a process in which the client and the therapist share a common objective. I like to set a limited number of sessions to address the main problem that the person is facing and facilitate change as quickly as possible by promoting the client’s own resources, and to be able that evaluate the results of our joint effort. We will do the minimum possible number of sessions, but always the sessions that are needed.
