What is a nutritionist?

A nutritionist is a health professional who is a specialist in nutrition at all stages of life. Nutritionists work to promote healthy and balanced eating routines. They help people to develop personalised meal plans that meet their specific nutritional needs.

These healthcare professionals work not only in hospitals, but also in primary care and private clinics, schools, sports centers, the food and beverage industry and research.

Nutritionists help people facing a wide range of health problems, such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, to establish a healthy eating pattern and reduce the comorbidities associated with these conditions. In addition, they also help people with no pathologies to prevent them by making the right food choices.

What can a nutritionist do for you?

A nutritionist can help you with a wide range of nutrition and food-related issues:

1. Developing a personalised eating plan: A healthy, balanced eating plan that is tailored to your specific nutritional needs and helps you reaching your health goals.

2. Managing specific health conditions: Diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and chronic kidney disease are an example of conditions that can be improved and sometimes reversed by following a proper diet plan.

3. Nutrition education: Providing you with information on how to make healthy food choices, read nutrition labels, and make healthy choices in restaurants and when you travel.

4. Preparing healthy meals: Giving you ideas and recipes for healthy, balanced meals that are easy to prepare and delicious to taste.

5. Support and motivation: Supporting you and motivating you in decision-making regarding healthy eating and your health goals.

Who can benefit from a nutritionist?

People who want to improve their health:
Anyone who wants to improve their overall health and learn more about nutrition and healthy eating as these professionals can provide information on how to make healthy food choices, plan balanced meals and make lasting healthy lifestyle changes.

People who want to lose weight:
The support of a nutritionist is essential for overweight and obese people who need or want to lose weight in a healthy and sustainable way. Also, people with normal weight who may have a high fat mass and want to lose body fat.

A nutritionist should analyse lifestyle and personal tastes to develop a specific eating plan that fits each person’s nutritional needs and weight loss goals. By working with a nutritionist, one can receive specific recommendations on the types of foods to eat, the amount of calories to consume, the proper distribution of macronutrients, and how to plan meals to maximise satiety and prevent the temptation to overeat.

In addition, a nutritionist can provide nutrition education and support tools to help maintain motivation and commitment to each individual’s weight loss plan. This may include identifying potential obstacles and strategies for overcoming them, as well as guidance on healthy food choices while eating away from home or in social situations.

It is important to note that a nutritionist focuses not only on weight loss, but also on overall health. Therefore, they can work with each individual to develop an eating plan that is balanced, sustainable and beneficial to long-term health.

People affected by chronic diseases:
In chronic diseases such as diabetes, chronic kidney disease, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal diseases, among others, following a proper nutrition plan is essential to improve the quality of life of those affected.

It is essential that a professional assesses the patient’s current nutritional status and develops a specific dietary plan that fits the nutritional needs and disease management goals.

People with degenerative diseases:
Although an accurate nutrition plan cannot cure diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Huntington’s disease and others, having an optimal nutritional status can play an important role in managing symptoms and improving the quality of life of affected individuals.

This may include recommendations on the types of foods to eat to improve their nutritional status and decrease symptoms of the disease, such as inflammation, fatigue and cognitive problems.

People with cancer:
For people with cancer, following an specific nutrition plan is essential to maintain a healthy weight and muscle mass. This will increase the chances of recovery. Adequate nutrient intake should be ensured to meet the body’s nutritional demands during cancer treatment to help alleviate the side effects of cancer treatment such as nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite and fatigue.

Athletes and sportspeople:
A sports nutritionist can be very helpful to an athlete or sportsperson seeking to maximise their performance and improve their overall health. Proper diet and nutrition are critical to athletic performance, recovery, and injury prevention.

Thanks to working with a nutritionist, the specific recommendations you receive on the amount and type of carbohydrates, protein and fats to consume, are crucial to enhance performance and promote muscle recovery. The professional can also help planning meals and snacks around individual training and sporting events, to ensure the athletes have enough energy and nutrients to perform at their best.

A nutritionist will also provide nutritional education on hydration, supplementation and other factors that affect the athletic performance and overall health status.

It is important to note that nutritional requirements can vary by sport and by individual, so working with a professional can help you getting a personalised diet that is optimal for each person. In addition, a nutritionist can adapt your eating plan as your nutritional and athletic needs change over time.

People with eating disorders:
A nutritionist can be an essential part of the treatment team for people with eating disorders (ED), such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder. Their work will include monitoring calorie intake, making nutritious food choices and planning balanced meals to help people with EDs address disordered eating behaviours and develop strategies to establish healthier and more sustainable eating patterns.

Moreover, they also provide nutrition education and guidance on helping the person losing fears, changing their food attitudes, stablishing a healthy eating pattern in order to recover a healthy and adequate weight.

People with food allergies or intolerances:
People with food allergies or intolerances may need help in planning a healthy, balanced diet that meets their specific nutritional needs. The role of the nutritionist will be to provide advice on how to avoid foods that cause adverse reactions and how to obtain the necessary nutrients from other food sources.

Pregnant and breastfeeding women:
Pregnancy and breastfeeding are two periods in any woman’s life where nutrition must be monitored as the foods eaten can have a direct impact on the foetus. A nutritionist can be an important part of a pregnant and breastfeeding woman’s health care team by ensuring that she is getting the nutrients needed for a healthy pregnancy and by helping to prevent and treat any nutrition-related health problems.

Nutrición en Sinews

There are a wide variety of people who could thrive and improve their health by working with a nutritionist

How do we see the nutrition at Sinews?

There is no doubt that food is an aspect deeply rooted in culture and can be seen as an expression of identity, values and traditions. At Sinews, thanks to the multicultural nature of working with different nationalities, we understand and view nutrition from a cultural point of view, which involves recognising and respecting each person’s cultural practices and beliefs related to food and nutrition. This involves adapting nutritional recommendations and working with the community to improve nutrition in the specific cultural context.

Some ways to approach nutrition from a cultural point of view are:

  • Recognising cultural diversity: It is important to recognise cultural diversity and avoid making generalisations about what is considered a "healthy diet". Dietary practices vary from culture to culture, and what is considered healthy in one culture may not be healthy in another.
  • Respecting cultural beliefs and practices: It is essential to respect these aspects related to food, such as the halal or kosher diet, the prohibition of certain foods during certain religious periods or the preference for organic or locally sourced foods.

Thanks to the multidisciplinary team at Sinews, a psychologist or psychiatrist and a nutritionist working together can be very beneficial in treating eating disorders, managing eating problems related to mental health, addressing emotional eating behaviours and developing a comprehensive treatment plan. Collaboration between these professionals can help patients achieve optimal physical and mental health.

From Sinews we want to move away from traditional nutrition consultations where there is a professional and a patient. We have a close treatment to the person, we study each case in a particular way, we dedicate the necessary time to each person and we focus the sessions according to the personal needs of each one of them. We understand the consultations as a moment of learning and exchange of information to improve health through proper nutrition.

Online AppointmentClinic Appointment

Important terms and definitions by the World Health Organization.


A central aspect of being human throughout life encompasses sex, gender identities and roles, sexual orientation, eroticism, pleasure, intimacy, and reproduction. Sexuality is experiences and expressed in thoughts, fantasies, desires, beliefs, attitudes, values, behaviours, practices, roles, and relationships. While sexuality can include all of these dimensions, not all of them are always experiences or expressed. Sexuality is influenced by the interaction of biological, psychological, social, economic, political, cultural, legal, historical, religious, and spiritual factors.

Sexual health

a state of physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction, or infirmity. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination, and violence. The sexual rights of all persons must be respected, protect4ed and fulfilled for sexual health to be attained and maintained.


Biological characteristics that define humans as female or male. The two are not mutually exclusive, as there are individuals who possess both.

What is sexology and sexual therapy?

Sexology is the scientific study of human sexuality, including sexual behavior, sexual attraction, and sexual identity. Moreover, it studies how the sexuality affects other areas, such as physical health and society.

It is a multidisciplinary field, based on the sciences of psychology, sociology, anthropology, biology, and medicine. It also considers cultural history, religion, and ethics.

Sexual therapy is carried out by a clinical sexologist or sexual therapist, and focuses on improving sexual health and well-being, preventing sexual risk behaviours and problems related to sexuality, and providing correct information about sexuality. It is specialized in the study and treatment of people´s sexual problems.

Sexual therapy can be beneficial for people of all ages, genders, and sexual orientations. It is a collaborative process that involves open and honest communication between the therapist and the individual or couple. The therapist will work with the individual or couple to identify and address any underlying psychological or emotional issues that may be contributing to their sexual problems.

In addition to addressing specific sexual problems, sexual therapy can also help individuals and couples develop a more positive and fulfilling sexual relationship. This can include improving communication and intimacy, enhancing sexual pleasure and enjoyment, and addressing any conflicts or difficulties in the relationship.

What is the importance of studying and treating sexual health?

Having difficulties or problems related to one´s sexuality affects the physical, psychological, and social health. It can lead to psychological problems such as anxiety, low mood/depression, eating disorders, addiction of legal or illegal substances, etc.

What is a sexual therapist and sexologist?

A sexologist is an expert with knowledge about sexuality. A clinical sexologist or a sexual therapist is moreover trained in therapeutic skills and in how to apply the knowledge to treat problems related to sexuality. They have knowledge about sexuality in all ages and sexes, about anatomy, pleasure, sexual dysfunctions and problems, sexual traumas, guidance within sexuality, sexual history, and a lot more.

Sexologist is not a protected title, so anyone working with problems related to sexuality can call themselves a sexologist. It is therefore important to get informed about their background and education. It is perfectly ok to ask the sexologist directly about their education.

Having a health-related bachelor´s degree in Spain, will allow you to do a master´s degree in sexology and sexual therapy. As there is no specific bachelor´s degree, different sexologist has different areas in which they are specialists (nurse, teacher, psychologists, etc.), and their competence and specialisation differ.

In a master´s program, the sexology students learn about sexual development, sexual diversity, sexual boundary crossings and societal perspectives on sexuality amongst other things. They learn about sexuality from a multidisciplinary perspective: psychological, social, and biological.

Clinical sexologists work with a variety of problems related to sexuality. It can range between sexual disfunctions and minor difficulties in sexual relationships, to the treatment of more extensive problems such as lack of sexual desire or paedophilia. They also work with treatment of sexual abusers and victims of sexual abuse.

Who can receive sexual therapy, and what are the most common motives to seek therapy?

Anyone can seek help from a sexual therapist, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, and relationship status. The most common issues brought up in sexual therapy include:

  • Low libido or lack of sexual desire
  • Difficulty becoming or staying aroused
  • Erectile dysfunction or difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection
  • Premature ejaculation or difficulty delaying ejaculation
  • Difficulty achieving orgasm
  • Pain during sex
  • Sexual anxiety or performance anxiety
  • Difficulties with communication and intimacy in relationships
  • Concerns about sexual orientation or gender identity
  • Unresolved past sexual trauma or abuse
  • Concerns about sexual fantasies
  • Fear of committing to one or several persons
  • Faulty expectations for sexual activity (often caused by pornography)
  • Desire to explore new sexual activities in a safe manner (BDSM)

These are just a few examples of the issues that can be addressed in sex therapy. Ultimately, any issue that affects your sexuality, sexual experiences or relationships can be addressed in sex therapy.

What can you expect in sexual therapy?

During sex therapy, you can expect to talk openly and honestly about your sexual experiences, concerns, and goals without prejudice. Your therapist will listen to your concerns and help you identify any issues that may be affecting your sex life. A clinical sexologist should be able to understand, guide, and help people who struggle with problems related to sexuality.

In a first session, you can expect the therapist to ask about the motive for seeking therapy, give a brief explanation about how the therapy will work and start assessing/evaluating the problem. The information provided by the client is confidential, and the therapist is not allowed to disclose any of the information unless a life is in potential danger. The first questions are often aimed at discarding possible biological or physiological issues related to the problem through a series of questions, and sometimes a medical appointment. Further, the therapist commonly ask about your history regarding health, medication, difficulties, and how you experience the situation. Sometimes it might feel like the questions are irrelevant to the problem, but to assess that, the therapist will need the information first and will therefore ask questions in several contexts of your life. You should never be pressured into sharing information you do not wish to share, but the more information you do provide, the more the therapist will be able to help.

After several session of evaluating and assessing the particular case (the number of sessions depends on the specific problem), a session will be dedicated to give back the information in an organized and professional manner. To give the “diagnosis”. Together with the client, they will establish specific objectives for the therapy, and the sexologist will create an individualized intervention plan. You will then receive the information, advice and guidance adapted to your needs. You will often receive tasks to complete at home and outside of the consultations both during the evaluation and the intervention phase.

Sexual therapy sessions can be conducted individually or with your partner, depending on your specific needs and goals. The number and frequency of sessions will vary depending on your individual situation and progress.

In sexual therapy, you can expect to:
– Discuss your sexual history, experiences, and goals
– Explore the emotional, psychological, and relationship factors that may be affecting your sex life
– Develop strategies and techniques to improve your sexual experiences and relationships
– Address any concerns or misunderstandings you may have about your sexuality
– Improve communication with your partner(s) about sexual issues

If the sexologist cannot help you, they will derive you to another health professional or sexologist who is more specialized on that specific problem.

What are common techniques and interventions used in sexual therapy?

There are many techniques that are commonly used in sexual therapy to help people improve their sexual experiences and relationships. These techniques can vary depending on the individual’s specific needs and goals, as well as the therapist’s approach and training.

Some common techniques used in sex therapy include:

  • Education about sexual anatomy, physiology, and function
  • Communication and intimacy-building exercises
  • Relationship skills training
  • Sensate focus, a technique that involves touching and being touched in a non-sexual way to increase intimacy and pleasure, without the goal of sexual arousal or orgasm
  • Relaxation and stress-reduction techniques to help alleviate anxiety or performance pressure
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to address negative thought patterns and behaviors that may be impacting sexual function
  • Exercises to improve sexual function and performance, such as Kegel exercises for women and penis pump use for men
  • Exploration of personal values, beliefs, and attitudes about sex and sexuality
  • Referrals to medical professionals for the evaluation and treatment of physical sexual dysfunctions

These are just a few examples of the techniques that may be used in sex therapy. Your therapist will work with you to develop an individualized plan that addresses your specific needs and goals.

What are common misconceptions about sexology and sexual therapy?

  1. Only people with sexual problems seek out sex therapy.
    This is not true. Sex therapy can be helpful for anyone who wants to improve their sexual experiences or relationships, or who has concerns or questions about their sexuality.
  2. Sex therapy is only for people who are unhappy with their sex lives.
    While sex therapy can help people who are having problems with their sex lives, it can also be beneficial for people who are already satisfied with their sex lives but want to enhance them even further. 
  3. Sex therapists are only qualified to help with physical problems.
    In fact, sex therapists are trained to help with a wide range of issues related to sexuality, including emotional, psychological, and relationship issues. As mentioned, different sexologists have different backgrounds and are specialized in different areas.
  4. Sex therapy is embarrassing and invasive.
    While sex therapy may require you to discuss personal and intimate details of your sex life, it is not embarrassing or invasive. Sex therapists are trained to create a safe, non-judgmental environment where you can feel comfortable discussing these topics. Also, you should never feel forced to disclose information you are not ready to share.
  5. Sex therapy is only for straight couples.
    Sex therapy is not just for straight couples. It can be helpful for people of any sexual orientation, gender identity, or relationship status. Many sexologists are specialized from a gender perspective. 
  6. Sex therapy is a quick fix.
    Like other forms of therapy, sex therapy can take time and effort to be effective. It is not a quick fix, but rather a process of exploration and discovery that can lead to lasting positive changes in your sex life and relationships. The process is seldom lineal, and it is normal to go through ups and downs.
  7. Sexologists offer sexual services.
    They do not offer sexual services, they offer guidance, conversation and education about sexuality. 

Conclusion/summarize the importance of studying and treating sexual health

Overall, sexual therapy can be an effective treatment for individuals and couples who are experiencing difficulties related to their sexuality. It can help them improve their sexual health and well-being, and enhance their overall quality of life. The therapy can help clients learn to become more attuned to their own bodies and their partner(s)’s body and can help improve intimacy and sexual communication.

The goal of sex therapy is to help you improve your sexual health.

«Mindfulness (atención plena) es la conciencia que surge de prestar atención, a propósito, en el momento presente y sin juzgar…»
– Jon Kabat-Zinn

En muchas ocasiones tenemos una tendencia a ponernos en modo de piloto automático, dejándonos llevar por nuestras preocupaciones sobre el pasado o el futuro, sin ser conscientes de lo que estamos haciendo en el presente. Así, pasamos horas y horas de nuestro día haciendo cosas sin prestar atención a ellas. A muchos de nosotros nos habrá pasado cosas parecidas como cuando estamos leyendo un libro y después de un rato nos damos cuenta de que no nos hemos enterado del contenido de la lectura, o cuando, en la hora de la comida, no nos damos cuenta de lo que estamos comiendo, dejándonos llevar por nuestros pensamientos. Para entrenar nuestra capacidad de vivir en el presente les presentamos nuestro programa de Mindfulness.

MINDFULNESS es prestar atención al momento presente a propósito, desde una actitud amable, compasiva, curiosa y sin juzgar. Nos ayuda a fomentar esa capacidad de vivir en el momento presente, tomar conciencia de nuestros pensamientos y emociones, observarlas sin juzgar con la aceptación y amabilidad.

La práctica del Mindfulness tiene numerosos beneficios, hemos añadido en esta breve introducción algunos de los más destacados:

  • Ayuda a aumentar nuestra capacidad de concentración y conciencia.
  • Contribuye a desarrollar la capacidad de no dejarse llevar de forma impulsiva por nuestros pensamientos.
  • Nos animará a ser agradecido y a apreciar la belleza que nos rodea.
  • Permitirá que tengamos mayor flexibilidad ante nuestras experiencias emocionales mejorando su regulación.

Así en Sinews hemos querido lanzar este programa de Mindfulness (Conciencia Plena) en directo para que puedan conocer de cerca este estado y experimentar los beneficios de la práctica de Mindfulness. El presente programa está basado en el reconocido MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program) de Kabat-Zinn.
Consta de 6 sesiones con una duración de 45 minutos cada sesión por semana.

Support Group for Survivors of Sexual Trauma

A support group is a safe place where people who have lived similar experiences can come together to share and be heard in an atmosphere of acceptance and understanding.

Our goal throughout the sessions will be to gain a better understanding of trauma, the psychological aftermath and the process of recovery.

How does it work?

The group follows a planned 10 session schedule in which we will look at different elements of trauma and the process of recovery. We will not discuss the specific stories of each member but focus instead on how we are doing in the present moment and the different elements that are important to focus on while we are recovering from a traumatic experience.

The road to recovery from an experience of sexual trauma is a long one in which different emotions and patterns appear. The feeling of isolation is usually a common denominator while we are in the midst of it. Through joining the group you’ll see that you´re not alone and a deeper understanding and compassion towards yourself and the process you´re in will be gained.

Cultural adaptation and "culture shock"


Cultural adaptation and "culture shock"

How long will it take to adjust?

Online AppointmentClinic Appointment

It takes time to adjust to a new culture and all of the new stressors in its environment. The amount of time needed will vary from person to person. There are studies that show distinct phases of adjustment.

  • The first phase is the “honeymoon” phase. This phase can begin, in the form of eagerness and anticipation, before even arriving in Spain. It’s the excitement that is felt when embarking on a new adventure. It usually doesn’t last for more than a couple of weeks after arrival.
  • In the second phase, termed “culture shock”, the excitement wares off and the distress of having to adjust to a foreign culture sets in. Symptoms of this phase include loneliness and sadness, sleep disturbance, feelings of worthlessness or inadequacy, irritability, resentment, criticism toward the new culture, social withdrawal and longing for home, friends and family.
  • In the third stage, one starts to feel a sense of balance as the culture starts to become more familiar (language, food, etc.), and new support networks are being created.
  • The fourth stage is when “adaptation” is achieved. The person starts to feel that they belong. They have an appreciation for the new culture and take advantage of what it has to offer.
  • The fifth, and final stage is called the “re-entry shock” phase. When it’s time to return to the country of origin, one can experience a sense of loss related to having to leave behind the new culture and its customs.

When should I seek counseling for “culture shock”?

When you feel like you’re not moving past the culture shock phase, especially after being in Spain for a couple of months, it may be time for counseling. If you’re experiencing the symptoms mentioned above, and utilizing the resources available to you isn’t working, counseling can be very effective. It can help turn an experience that feels overwhelming, and never-ending, into an opportunity for growth.

Try these strategies to combat “culture shock”

Remember that you are in transition and that what you are experiencing is normal and temporary.

  • Meet people. Get involved in the culture socially and professionally. Volunteer your time, pursue a hobby or join a club, but get out and get connected.
  • Don’t simply react to what is happening; be proactive and self-confident!
  • Make a list every day of at least 3 positive things that have happened, things you’ve learned and that you appreciate about the new culture (do this right before you go to bed!).
  • Don’t be ashamed to get help if you need it.
