Patricia Almohalla Alvarez

registered Counselling Psychologist /EMDR therapist

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.
