About me and my therapy practice

I have been working as a Psychotherapist for 15 years in Argentina, Spain and UK. I offer Therapy in English or Spanish languages. 

I am an Associated Therapist at Insight Therapy Centre in Leeds since 2019. 

I completed my Psychotherapist training and I also finished my PhD in the area of anxiety and athletes publishing books and articles in relation with stress and anxiety management in athletes. I have also being a Senior Lecturer in Sport Psychology and Cognitive Psychology in Argentinean and English Universities, tutoring Theses in the area of sports and stress effects in cognitive abilities. 

For the impact of my research and interventions with athletes I was rewarded by University of Oviedo in Spain, Faculty of Medicine with 'Asturias Prince Award', in 2006.

In England I taught Psychology at Leeds Beckett University and University of Bradford (Cognitive Psychology, Research Methods and Developmental Psychology modules).

I have also been the Wellbeing and Counselling Team Leader at Leeds City College for 2 years.

At the same time I work with athletes I work with adults and young people in the areas of Eating Disorders, OCD, low mood and anxiety.
