  • Psicológa por la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.
  • Máster en Trabajo social, estado de bienestar y metodologías de intervención social por la UNED.
  • Máster de Psicología General Sanitaria en la Universidad Europea de Madrid.
  • Posgrado de Salud Mental, Género e Intervenciones Psicológicas con Inmigrantes en la Universidad de Barcelona (en curso).

Yue se considera inmigrante de la generación 1,5 ya que no es ni de la primera generación ni de la segunda, sino migró junto a su familia a España con 14 años. El haber crecido entre dos países le ha permitido conocer ambas culturas en profundidad y dominar ambos idiomas a nivel bilingüe. Conoce de primera mano el reto de adaptarse a una nueva sociedad, hacer amigos de nuevo, comprender la nueva cultura sin perder la cultura de origen…

A pesar de un proceso ajetreado de escolarización en España debido a varias mudanzas familiares, Yue consiguió terminar su bachillerato en el prestigioso instituto madrileño Ramiro de Maeztu con un diploma de Matrícula de Honor. Durante los años de carrera en Psicología, Yue siempre se interesó por la labor humanitaria brindando apoyo a personas vulnerables, así como por la creación de puentes interculturales. Como voluntaria de la Casa China y la ONG Desarrollo y Asistencia trabajó acompañando a personas con diversidad funcional y a personas mayores. También participaba en eventos interculturales poniendo su granito de arena para la comunicación intercultural y colaboraba en artículos para dar voz a la comunidad china en busca de una mayor justicia social.

Su vocación nace de la propia lucha en el proceso de adaptación y de estas experiencias de apoyo en las que desde la empatía comprendía la necesidad de un trabajo terapéutico. Durante la carrera, Yue hizo voluntariado internacional en un centro de rehabilitación de esquizofrenia en Alemania en el que realizaba tareas ocupacionales en el huerto con los pacientes. Asegura que disfrutó mucho de las conversaciones tras el trabajo y conoció a las personas detrás del diagnóstico. Posteriormente, cursó cuarto de carrera en la Universidad de Ámsterdam con el programa Erasmus. Adaptarse al nuevo sistema académico neerlandés y estudiar en inglés le supondría todo un reto a la vez que le dio la oportunidad de conocer otra forma de aprender. El contacto con estudiantes de todo el mundo supuso un paso más en su experiencia de diversidad cultural.

En el año 2018 empezó a trabajar como mediadora intercultural a través de un programa público del ayuntamiento de Madrid, acompañando a personas en situación de riesgo, así como organizando actividades y eventos comunitarios de intercambio cultural. En el mismo año, Yue cofunda una asociación sin ánimo de lucro destinada a la promoción del acercamiento intercultural entre comunidad china y el resto de la población.
Buscando ofrecer un apoyo más integral y profundo completa el Máster de Psicología General Sanitaria. Gracias a su experiencia en el ámbito social, Yue aporta a sus clientes un expertise en problemas de adaptación cultural como el estrés aculturativo, los duelos migratorios y los trastornos de adaptación. Un expertise reconocido ya que ha participado como ponente en diversas charlas universitarias y jornadas nacionales sobre igualdad, migración y salud…

Yue fue seleccionada para realizar sus prácticas en SINEWS de entre múltiples candidat@s, precisamente por su perfil intercultural y multilingüe. De la mano de su tutora Victoria Ramos Khurland atendió con supervisión a pacientes que sufrían ansiedad generalizada, depresión, ansiedad social, traumas de infancia y dificultades de apego entre otros. Su papel terapéutico como alumna brilló con luz propia y enseguida supimos que la queríamos en el equipo.

Yue trabaja con un enfoque integrador, combinando técnicas de base cognitivo-conductual con habilidades clínicas propias del humanismo, dándole máxima importancia al vínculo terapéutico y la empatía. Considera que lo que más se agradece y lo más valioso en la terapia psicológica es la confianza depositada en la terapeuta por parte del paciente y la “lucha compartida” contra los malestares.

Nos deja este mensaje para ti: “Gracias por darme la oportunidad de acompañarte en tu proceso de cambio. Créete. Créenos, lo haremos bien.”

  • Degree in Psychology at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.
  • Master's Degree in General Health Psychology at the Universidad Villanueva.

With a German mother and a Spanish father Clara has grown up in a bilingual and multicultural environment on which she has built her personal skills and interests. Clara has grown up in Madrid, with her parents and her paternal family, but she has been in constant contact with her German family spending her summers in Munich, Stuttgart and Berlin.

She spent her schooling from kindergarten to the age of 18 at the German School in Madrid, with teachers and classmates of different origins. Nowadays she values especially the promotion of independent learning and critical thinking that the school provided her, while at the same time she is aware of the high academic demands of this educational system.

Since adolescence, Clara has had a special interest in understanding social relationships and emotions. In secondary school and after completing training, she worked for three years as a school mediator providing support to the school psychologists in the resolution of conflicts between primary students. She loved the experience of supporting the little ones who were more alone or who had a fight, teaching them to manage emotions and to empathize with others. It was there that she understood that children’s problems are no less important, since difficulties that may seem minor have a major impact on the little ones.

Studying Psychology at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, she was interested in behavior analysis as an evidence-based approach that allows an efficient therapy adapted to each person and their context. She extended her training at the Center for Applied Psychology at the UAM with a training in Motivational Interviewing, a methodology focused on supporting the client with the change they want to achieve. which helps them to explore and resolve ambivalences so that they can engage and persist in the direction they have decided to take.

After completing an internship in recruitment for Sales Hunters she decided to focus her Final Degree Project on primary prevention of psychosocial risks related to working from home. In her opinion, the relationship between performance and well-being at work is unquestionable and in that sense, working for the integration of each member of the team is always beneficial. She developed a program aimed for companies interested in evaluating and reducing the psychosocial risks related to teleworking.

During the Master in General Health Psychology, she completed an internship at the Mental Health Center ITA Moscatelar in the Eating Disorders Unit. For Clara, eating is «just» one more symptom, the tip of the iceberg, of a deeper problem that requires multidisciplinary attention and always working as a team with families.

Clara was selected for her second MPGS internship at Sinews, under the guidance of the psychologist and coach Eva Herber, her current supervisor. With her guidance she has been able to learn and get an approach to Positive Psychology and Strengths Coaching. where she discovered the therapeutic power of focusing on what the patient already does well and promoting it, instead of focusing on what he/she does wrong and trying to correct it. In her work with adult patients suffering from depression, work stress, self-esteem problems and cultural adaptation difficulties, she shone with her own light and the company integrated her as soon as she finished working with the team.
She is currently in training in the child and youth department to work again with children and adolescents, where early intervention prevents problems from developing into major difficulties.

Clara offers a safe space to freely express the difficulties or situations that generate distress and thus accompany and treat, with respect and without judgment, the personal needs of each patient.

  • Diplômé en médecine par l'Universidad de Alcalá, Madrid.
  • Spécialiste en neurologie du Complejo Asistencial de Segovia.
  • Spécialiste en psychiatrie de l'hôpital général universitaire Reina Sofía de Murcie.

Née au Canada au sein d’une famille espagnole, elle vit jusqu’à l’âge de 19 ans à Montréal, ville reconnue pour sa multiculturalité et pour son ouverture au monde. Sa formation académique est bilingue française et anglaise depuis son enfance.

À 16 ans, elle représente le Canada dans le programme Ruta Quetzal, déclaré comme étant « d’intérêt universel » par l’Unesco. Elle participe dans l’expédition de l’an 2000 en parcourant l’Espagne, les États-Unis et le Mexique, ce qui représente une expérience de vie très enrichissante et ce qui marque sans doute son histoire.

En 2003, elle débute ses études de Médecine à l’Université d’Alcala à Madrid. Tout au long de sa formation, elle participe dans divers programmes d’échange universitaires, qui lui permettent de se déplacer dans différentes facultés de Médecine en Europe. Dans le cadre d’un de ces programmes, durant sa deuxième année d’études, elle voyage en Slovaquie pour se former à l’Hôpital Universitaire Louis Pasteur à Košice. Plus tard, elle étudie sa 5ème année de carrière à la Faculté de Médecine de Montpellier en France, avec une bourse Erasmus. C’est là-bas qu’elle s’initie dans le monde de la Neurologie et de la Psychiatrie, entre autres.

Une fois obtenue la Licence en Médecine, elle réalise un internat en Neurologie à Segovie (Espagne), dans l’équipe du Dr Duarte. Durant les premières trois années, elle complète sa formation dans différent hôpitaux de Madrid (Hospital U. Ramón y Cajal, Hospital U. 12 de Octubre, Hospital U. Puerta de Hierro) ainsi qu’à Valladolid (Hospital U. Río Hortega). Durant sa dernière année de résidence, elle retourne dans sa ville natale au Canada pour faire un stage externe au Montreal Neurological Institute, où elle se forme en troubles du mouvement, démence, sclérose en plaques et hospitalisation.

Une fois devenue Neurologue, elle décide de poursuivre sa formation et fait un deuxième internat en Psychiatrie, à l’Hôpital Reina Sofia de Murcia (Espagne). Elle accède à se former dans pratiquement tous les dispositifs du réseau de Santé Mentale de la région et s’expose à différentes orientations psychothérapeutiques.

En 2021 elle débute comme coordinatrice du Programme de Psycho-Gérontologie et de Diversité fonctionnelle du Centre de Santé Mentale d’Alcobendas à Madrid. Elle traite aussi des patients adultes de Psychiatrie Générale du milieu extrahospitalier, et s’occupe des urgences psychiatriques durant les gardes à l’Hôpital Universitaire Infanta Sofia de San Sebastian de los Reyes (Madrid).

  • Graduate in Medicine by Universidad de Alcalá, Madrid.
  • Neurology Specialist by Complejo Asistencial de Segovia.
  • Specialist in Psychiatry by Hospital General Universitario Reina Sofía de Murcia.

Dr Zamora was born in Montreal, a city known to be multicultural and diverse. Both her parents are of Spanish descent. She lived in Canada until the age of 19 and her academic education was bilingual in French and English up to then.

At age 16, as part of her extracurricular activities, she represented Canada in a cultural program called Ruta Quetzal, which was recognized by UNESCO to be of «Universal Interest». She got to travel around Spain, USA and Mexico, and it proved to be a very inspirational experience.

In 2003, she moved to Spain to pursue her education in Medicine at the University of Alcalá (Madrid). While being in Medical School, she had the opportunity to undertake exchange programs throughout Europe. Slovakia was one of the destinations where she studied during the summer of 2005 (Košice’s University Hospital Louis Pasteur). Another destination was France, where she spent her fifth year in the “Faculté de Médecine de Montpellier”. This is where she had her first clinical contact with Neurology and Psychiatry, which would one day become her specialties.

Once she achieved her medical degree, she went on to pursue her specialty as a resident in Neurology at the Hospital Complex in Segovia (Spain). During the first years, she completed her training with rotations in different hospitals in Madrid (H. U. Ramón y Cajal, H.U. 12 de Octubre, H.U. Puerta de Hierro) and in Valladolid (H.U. Río Hortega). As a senior resident, she moved back to her hometown Montreal to undergo an internship at the Montreal Neurological Institute, where she trained in Movement Disorders, Dementia, Multiple Sclerosis and Neurology wards.

After completing her specialty in Neurology, she undertook a second Residency in Psychiatry at the “Hospital General Universitario Reina Sofía” in Murcia (Spain). During that time, she took experience with different orientations in psychotherapy. Some of her clinical rotations were Dementia-Psychogeriatrics, Adult and Child/Adolescent Outpatients-Community Psychiatry, Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry, Eating Disorders, Personality Disorders, Adult and Child/Adolescent inpatient Psychiatry, Addictions, and long-term Mental Health Rehabilitation.

In 2021-2022, she worked as a psychiatrist in the public health system and was the Coordinator of the Psychogeriatrics and the Functional Diversity Programs in Alcobenda’s Mental Health Center (Madrid). She also assisted adult outpatients and attended on-call duties at the “Hospital Universitario Infanta Sofía” (San Sebastián de los Reyes, Madrid).

  • Bachelorgrad i psykologi ved European University of Madrid.
  • Master i klinisk psykologi ved European University of Madrid.
  • Master i atferdsterapi fra The Therapeutic Institute of Madrid (ITEMA)

Amalie er født i Norge av norske foreldre, men fra hun var liten har hun hatt kontakt med andre kulturer. Som 11-åring deltok hun på en internasjonal leir i Japan med barn fra 12 forskjellige land, og som 13-åring var hun igjen med på en internasjonal leir i Nederland. Der ble hun en del av en vennegjeng med barn fra Brasil, Jordan, Nederland og Canada, som beholdt kontakten i årene etterpå med «reunions» i hverandres hjemland der de fikk mulighet til å lære litt om landet og hverdagslivet til familiene hverandres. 

Amalie har også bodd i flere land, inkludert Den Dominikanske Republikk som barn, et semester som student i Argentina, et semester i Frankrike, et år i England, et utvekslingssemester i Peru, og flere år i Spania. Amalie har erfaringer som gjør at hun har god forståelse for de utfordringer en student i utlandet kan oppleve. Som hun sier; «Det er ofte de små tingene som kan være de største utfordringene». Som eksempel på hva som kan være vanskelig å forstå nevner hun kulturforskjeller i hvordan mennesker forholder seg til punktlighet og planer, døgnrytme for måltider og sosiale treffpunkter, de uskrevne sosiale «reglene» for kommunikasjon på et annet språk, og praktiske ting som administrative prosedyrer og offentlig byråkrati i landet man bor i. 

Som tenåring begynte Amalie å jobbe som støttekontakt for barnevernet, og det var da interessen for psykologifaget begynte. I denne jobben skulle hun være en støtteperson for ungdommer som bodde i hjem med kompliserte familieforhold, og opplevde da at hun manglet kunnskap om hvordan hun kunne hjelpe på best mulig måte.

Amalies interesse og nysgjerrighet for verden utenfor hjemlandet gjorde at hun ønsket å studere i utlandet, og fullførte psykologigraden sin ved European University of Madrid. Da hun holdt på med mastergraden i klinisk psykologi fikk hun tilbud om å utføre praksisperioden sin ved SINEWS hvor hun ble introdusert for klinisk praksis i et flerkulturelt miljø. 

Der lærte hun hvordan man blant annet kan hjelpe utenlandske studenter med overgangen til å bo og studere i Spania, minske deres prokrastinering, angst og depresjon og hvordan håndtere press fra seg selv og andre. I feriene dro Amalie tilbake til Norge og jobbet som terapeut på psykiatrisk sykehus. I denne jobben fikk hun erfaring med pasienter som slet med intrusive og negative tanker, høye nivåer av angst, sosiale problemer og ferdigheter, avhengighet og sinnehåndteringsproblemer og som hadde vansker med å skille virkelighet og fantasi.

Amalie har i tillegg fullført en mastergrad i atferdsmodifikasjon fra The Therapeutic Institute of Madrid (ITEMA). Gjennom dette studiet har hun utdypet sin forståelse for hvorfor vi gjør det vi gjør, og hva vi kan gjøre når vår atferd og omstendigheter forårsaker problemer. For Amalie er det viktig å hjelpe klientene til å forstå både problemets opprinnelse og hva som vedlikeholder problemet. På den måte kan hun lage en individuell plan for behandling slik at klienten kan oppleve bedring og fremskritt.

Amalie beskriver seg selv som en varm, ikke-dømmende psykolog, som er dedikert til å hjelpe klientene sine. Hun har jobbet med ulike problemområder innenfor angst, fobier og gruble-tanker, utvikling av sosiale ferdigheter, grensetting og selvhevdelse, selvtillit og selvbilde, prokrastinering, selvskading, ulike tvangslidelser, og vanskeligheter vi kan oppleve når vi blir eldre. Amalie tror på menneskets evne til å lære nye måter å håndtere problemene sine, og at man i terapi kan få verktøy og lære nye strategier som gjør det mulig å håndtere utfordringer også etter at terapien er avsluttet. Amalie kombinerer for tiden sitt kliniske arbeid med arbeid som foreleser på psykologistudiet ved European University of Madrid, og forsøker til enhver tid å holde seg oppdatert på utvikling og fremskritt innen fagfeltet.

  • Bachelor’s Degree in psychology at the European University of Madrid
  • Master’s Degree in General Health Psychology at the European University of Madrid
  • Master in Behaviour Therapy from the Therapeutic Institute of Madrid

Amalie was born in Norway to Norwegian parents, but ever since she was little she has been in contact with many different cultures. When she was 11 years old, she travelled to an international camp in Japan where she met children from 12 different countries. At 13 she repeated the experience, but this time in the Netherlands, where she met a group of friends from Brazil, Jordan, the Netherlands, and Canada, which she would later visit and learn about their lives with their families.

Amalie has lived in several countries, including a year as a child in the Dominican Republic, a term as a student in Argentina, another term in France, she completed her first year of psychology in England, did an exchange term in Peru, and finally completed her degree and postgraduate degree in Spain. She has a good understanding of the challenges a student abroad may experience, as she says; «It’s often the little things that can be the biggest challenges.» Some examples she mentions are cultural differences in how people relate to punctuality and planning, tendencies for when to have dinner or go out on social activities, the unwritten social rules for communication in another language, and practical things such as administrative processes that can be difficult to understand and require a lot of energy. 

As a teenager, Amalie began working as a mentor for the child protective services, and there began her interest in psychology. She worked with adolescents who came from dysfunctional homes and noticed that she lacked information and knowledge on how she could help them in the best possible way.

In love with the international environment, Amalie decided to study abroad, and completed her psychology degree at the European University of Madrid. During her Master’s Degree in General Health Psychology, she was selected to complete her internship at SINEWS where she was able to learn about clinical practice in a multicultural environment, helping foreign students with the transition to live and study in Spain, lower their procrastination, anxiety, and depression, and how to handle pressure from oneself, peers, and family members. 

During the holidays, Amalie returned to Norway to work as a therapist in a psychiatric hospital. There she worked with cases of intrusive and negative thoughts, high levels of anxiety, difficulties in separating reality from fantasy, interpersonal problems and social skills, addictions, and anger management problems.

Amalie has also completed a master’s degree in behaviour modification from The Therapeutic Institute of Madrid (ITEMA) to deepen her understanding of why we do what we do and what we can do when our behaviour and circumstances cause us problems. For her it is important to help clients understand the origin and current maintenance of their problems, in order to design an individualised intervention so that the clients can begin to feel better.

Amalie describes herself as a warm, non-judgmental psychologist who is very dedicated to her cases. She has experience working with various types of problems, including anxiety, phobias, and ruminative thoughts, the development of assertiveness and social skills, self-esteem, procrastination, self-harm, obsessive-compulsive behaviours, and difficulties that one may experience with aging. Amalie believes in the ability to learn other ways of handling problems in therapy, to develop new tools that allow the clients to continue independently once the sessions are over. She currently combines her clinical work with being a lecturer in psychology at the European University of Madrid, always trying to keep up to date with new advances in psychology.

  • Graduate in Psychology from the University of Valencia
  • Master's Degree in General Health Psychology from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid

Born in Albacete, thanks to his parent’s interest in languages he spent several summers as a teenager in the UK (Oxford and Cambridge), where he met peers from many different countries (Russia, Italy, France, Japan…). Thanks to this international experience he decided to attend the bilingual program psychology at the University of Valencia, during which he did a one year exchange at Rutgers University in USA. There, he shared a dorm with roommates from Taiwan, France, Australia and Hong Kong. He faced the challenges of an international student that has to adapt to a different academic system as well as learn to manage his finances and build healthy habits like eating and exercising. During his time in the USA he worked to support people on the Autism Spectrum at the Douglass Developmental Disabilities Center, where ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) techniques are applied.

There, he also joined a neuroscience lab (the CLEF lab) and participated in experiments and scientific publications as well as attended international conventions.

Upon his return to Spain, he joined another research team at the University of Valencia at the same time he started his training at Hospital Clínico de Valencia, where he closely followed the team in charge of people going through their first psychotic episode, familiarizing himself with the reality of people with Severe Mental Disorders and the importance of educating the patient and their family on their disease, in order to challenge preconceived ideas and face their daily problems. During his senior year, he got involved in an LGBTIQ+ organization and became increasingly aware of the lack of inclusion of many studies in the field of clinical psychology, which motivated him to spend several years looking into the consequences that discrimination against LGBT people has on a person’s psychological wellbeing though a intersectional lens. This way, he completed a project on the prevalence of depression and anxiety among LGB people and another project focused on the protective role that social support has in the face of LGBTphobic discrimination.

He decided to move to the capital to study a Masters’ Degree in General Health Psychology at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and has the opportunity to receive training at the Center for Applied Psychology of said university. There, he gained interest in Behavioral Analysis as an evidence-based approach that allows for an efficient therapy that is tailored to the person and their context.

He was selected for an internship at SINEWS MTI, where he gained valuable experience and knowledge thanks to the guidance of therapists with years of experience with Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Due to the high quality of his work, he was able to join the SINEWS team and moved to Murcia to work as a School Counsellor at the British School King’s College. During his work with teenagers, he became fascinated by the intensity and passion with which they experience their daily lives. He helped them manage their emotions and make decisions to get them closer to their goals, values and ambitions. At the same time, he worked online with adult expats and international students.

Jorge defines himself as a curious and patient therapist. He believes in an evidence-based, judgment-free therapy that allows for a work aligned with the client’s values.

  • Degree in Human Nutrition and Dietetics by Universidad Complutense of Madrid
  • Master`s degree in Public Health (focus on Nutrition and Active Living) by Victoria University
  • Postgraduate degree in Microbiome by Regenera University

When I asked Adriana why she had studied Human Nutrition and Dietetics, her answer was that she loves eating and she wanted to understand more in depth the importance of nutrition in people’s lives. She believes that since we are born, we grow up in an environment where we socialize through food and drink. Therefore, helping people to make better food choices is so exciting to her. She says that since she was a little girl, she has always shown an interest in different foods and also in having healthy lifestyle habits that allow her to age in the best possible way. She tells me that her mother always says that her favorite food is paella because when she was 7 months old she tried it for the first time and was fascinated by it.

She studied Human Nutrition and Dietetics in Madrid where she discovered her interest in clinical and community nutrition. After finishing her degree, she felt the need to live away from home for a while. That is why she decided to take a big leap and go to live in New Zealand, as an au pair. Thanks to this experience, she was able to fully integrate into the English culture and discover more about the eating habits on the other side of the world. Living with kids made her discovered and became aware of the importance of good eating habits from an early age. She affirms that since we are children, we create bonds with food and establish certain patterns that when we are older are difficult to modify.

After living in New Zealand, she decided to study a master’s degree in public health in the neighboring country, Australia. Thanks to this master’s degree, the doors opened for her to start working as a nutritionist in that country. She worked as a nutritionist and she also organized and promoted events where she sought to improve people’s health. The experience of living and working as a nutritionist in that country gave her the opportunity of dealing with people from different countries and cultures and knowing how to adapt to their different customs, foods, cooking methods and preferred recipes.

Upon her return to Spain in 2020, she started working for a sports company, where she had her first contacts with people suffering from both, anorexia and bulimia, as they sought perfection in their bodies through working out extremly hard.

She currently works in a medical center where she treats patients with different pathologies (SIBO, food intolerances, digestive problems…), as well as weight loss or muscle mass gain among others. She believes that it working with a multidisciplinary team such as doctors, psychologists, physiotherapists is essential to see results in people, as each professional brings its knowledge and wisdom.

When working, she says she is a person who seeks to get to know people in order to adapt to their eating habits and modify them when it is convenient. In addition, she strongly believes in the individualization of nutritional guidelines as well as in supplementation, which can help in different situations.

Adriana defines herself as a very curious person who is always looking to learn something new. She believes that in the world of nutrition it is always necessary to keep yourself updated not to be left behind. That is the reason why she has recently studied about the impact of the microbiome in people’s health and its importance in different pathologies. Her great passions are sports (scuba diving, skiing and gym) and she never says no to a good brunch with its specialty coffee in the sun with her friends.

Adriana is now an established English speaking nutritionist in Madrid.

  • Master en Psychologie Clinique. Columbia University (New York, États-Unis)
  • Master en Troubles Alimentaires. Universidad Europea (Madrid, Espagne)
  • Master en Psychologie Génerale Sanitaire. Universidad Alfonso X El Sabio (Madrid, Espagne)

Verónica est née à Caracas, au Venezuela, mais a été en contact avec différentes cultures, étudiant et vivant à différents moments de sa vie en Amérique latine, aux États-Unis, en France et en Espagne.

Elle se souvient des étés de son enfance dans le New Hampshire, aux États-Unis, en particulier du rythme tranquille des villes de la Nouvelle-Angleterre, des chansons de feu de camp avec des s’mores et des sandwichs de peanut butter et jelly. Elle a eu l’occasion d’étudier 5th grade dans la ville de Boca Raton (Floride), connaissant de première main le système éducatif américain.

Après avoir terminé ses études, elle s’installe à Paris pour une gap year, où elle étudie le Français, l’Histoire de l’art et la Philosophie. C’est en France qu’elle est tombée amoureuse de la psychologie comme point de rencontre de son intérêt pour la compréhension de l’être humain et de sa vocation d’aider. Ce serait également sa première expérience en tant qu’étudiant à l’étranger avec les défis d’être loin de sa famille, de passer des examens dans une autre langue et de manquer la nourriture de son pays, en ressentant une certaine désorganisation autor de l’ alimentation. Maintenant, elle comprend combien de fois un séjour dans un autre pays peut déclencher un problème alimentaire.

Durant sa licence de Psychologie, elle a passé plusieurs étés dans différents pays: Angleterre, France et Etats-Unis. Elle effectuera ses stages dans une école et aussi dans un hôpital où elle pourra accompagner psychologiquement des personnes malades, dialysées et atteintes d’un cancer. Après avoir obtenu son diplôme, il a eu l’opportunité de travailler dans une unité de chirurgie bariatrique (réduction de l’estomac pour les personnes atteintes d’obésité) où elle a découvert qu’en plus de l’opération, c’ était essentiel d’aborder les difficultés émotionnelles et d’aider aux patients avec l’estime de soi, souvent endommagée ou avec la construction de leur nouvelle identité… C’est là qu’est né son intérêt pour les troubles du comportement alimentaire.

La Master en Psychologie Clinique de l’Université de Columbia serait sa prochaine étape, faisant d’elle une étudiante expatriée à nouveau pendant un an et demi, cette fois à New York. Entourée de collègues de tous les continents (sa meilleure amie était libanaise) elle aimait lire des heures dans les salles impressionnantes de la bibliothèque. De la main de la professeur Lisa Miller, elle a découvert l’effet protecteur de la spiritualité, quelle que soit la religion professée, en devenant chercheuse assistante pour la revue d’ APA Spirituality in Clinical Practice.

Pendant son séjour à New York, elle a travaillé comme volontaire à la Harlem Hebrew Charter School, un centre axé sur la formation de citoyens du monde, par l’éducation à l’empathie et à l’intelligence émotionnelle intégrant des enfants du quartier de Harlem, principalement latinos et afro-américains, avec étudiants juifs. L’adolescence devient alors l’une de ses étapes de prédilection, tombant amoureuse de l’énergie, de l’intensité et de l’honnêteté des adolescents et prenant conscience du moment délicat où tout peut mal tourner, mais aussi où tout peut être acheminé.

Enfin, elle s’est installée avec sa famille à Madrid où elle a commencé une Master en troubles de l’alimentation de l’UEM, se formant à l’hôpital pédiatrique universitaire Niño Jesús où elle a pu voir des cas d’enfants et d’adolescents à la fois en hospitalisation et dans l’unité de jour ; à l’hôpital Santa Cristina, où étaient pris en charge les cas chroniques dans lesquels c’ était essentiel de les aider à trouver la motivation pour changer et les accompagner pas à pas, et à l’Institut des troubles de l’alimentation (ITA). Pour Veronica, les troubles alimentaires et le poids ne sont que la pointe de l’iceberg, sous lesquels se cachent des symptômes émotionnels tels que des difficultés d’estime de soi, des problèmes de relations personnelles, des difficultés de gestion émotionnelle, parmi tant d’autres. Sans cesser de travailler sur l’amélioration du symptôme avec des techniques cognitivo-comportementales, c’ est essentiel d’aider les patients à atteindre un meilleur équilibre émotionnel et en même temps de soutenir la famille en lui donnant des indications.

Elle collabore actuellement en donnant des conférences dans des écoles avec la Fondation «Mangez vos peurs», contribuant à faire connaître la réalité de ces troubles.

Enfin, elle a étudié le Master en Psychologie Générale de la Santé à l’Université Alfonso X El Sabio et a été sélectionnée pour faire son stage à Sinews où elle a brillé de sa propre lumière et a été choisie pour rester et faire partie de l’équipe. 

Son orientation est cognitivo- comportementale mais elle intègre des outils et des techniques d’autres courants en fonction des besoins de chaque patient, grâce à sa formation en mindfulness, mindful eating et thérapie systémique (familiale).

Ayant eu l’opportunité de vivre pendant de longues périodes en Espagne, en France, aux États-Unis et au Venezuela, Verónica comprend très bien les défis et les besoins des étudiants étrangers et des familles expatriées. Elle se considère comme une personne chaleureuse et proche á cause de ses racines latines, avec une claire vocation humaniste et une vision multiculturelle du monde.

En tant que psychologue, Verónica croit que la compréhension est apaisante, elle cherche donc à comprendre les gens depuis l’intérêt et le respect, sans juger, afin d’accompagner et d’atteindre le bien-être souhaité grâce à un traitement personnalisé et intégrale.

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. Universidad Metropolitana (Venezuela) and Universidad Internacional de la Rioja (España)
  • Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology. Columbia University (Nueva York, USA)
  • Master’s Degree in Eating Disorders and Obesity. Universidad Europea (Madrid, España)

Veronica was born in Caracas, Venezuela, but has had contact with different cultures throughout her life, having lived and studied in Latin America, the United States, France and Spain. 

She remembers her childhood summers in New Hampshire, USA, especially the slow pace of small New England towns, singing around a campfire with s’mores and eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. She also had the opportunity to study 5th grade in the city of Boca Raton (Florida), getting to know first-hand the American educational system.

Upon finishing high school, she moved to Paris to do a gap year, where she studied French, Art History and Philosophy. It was in France where she fell in love with Psychology as it was a meeting point for her interest in understanding human beings and her vocation to help. This would also be her first experience as a student abroad with the challenges of being away from home, taking exams in another language and missing the food of her home country, feeling a certain disorganization around food and eating. She now understands why moving abroad can often be a trigger for a food related problem. 

During her Psychology degree, she spent several summers in different countries: England, France and the United States. She carried out her internships in a school as well as in a hospital where she was able to psychologically assist people on dialysis and with a cancer diagnosis. After graduating, she had the opportunity to work in a bariatric surgery unit (stomach reduction for people with obesity) where she discovered that in addition to the surgery it was essential to address emotional difficulties and help patients with their self-esteem, often damaged by endless failed diets, as well as with the emotional aspects of eating and in the construction of their new identity. This is where his interest in eating disorders was born.

The Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology at Columbia University would be her next step, making her an expatriate student again for a year and a half, this time in New York. She was surrounded by colleagues from all continents (her best friend was Lebanese) and she enjoyed reading during hours in the impressive rooms of Columbia University’s library. With the help of professor Lisa Miller, she discovered the protective effect of spirituality, regardless of the religion practiced, and became a research assistant for an APA published Journal called “Spirituality in Clinical Practice”.

During her time in New York, she worked as a volunteer teacher at Harlem Hebrew Charter School, a center focused on training global citizens, through education in empathy and emotional intelligence by integrating kids from the Harlem neighborhood, of mostly Latino and African-American background with Jewish students. The teenage years then became one of her favorite periods, falling in love with the energy, intensity and honesty of teens but also becoming aware that it can be a turning point moment where everything can go wrong as well as a moment where everything can be rerouted.

She finally settled with her family in Madrid where she began a Master’s Degree in Eating Disorders from the UEM, training at the Niño Jesús University Children’s Hospital where she was able to see cases of children and adolescents both in Hospitalization and in the Day Hospital Unit; at the Santa Cristina Hospital, working with adults where it was essential to help them find the motivation to change and accompany them step by step, and also at the Institute of Eating Disorders (ITA). For Veronica, in eating disorders, body and weight concerns are just the tip of the iceberg, because underneath there are emotional symptoms such as self-esteem difficulties, problems with personal relationships, difficulties in emotional management, lack of assertiveness, among many others. While working on the symptoms with cognitive behavioral techniques, it is essential to help patients achieve a better emotional balance and at the same time support the family by providing guidelines.

Currently, she collaborates giving talks in schools with the «Cómete tus miedos» Foundation, helping to disseminate and raise awareness of the reality of these disorders.

Finally, she completed a Master’s Degree in General Health Psychology at the Alfonso X El Sabio University and was selected to do her internship at Sinews where she shone with her own light and was chosen to stay and be part of the team.

Her orientation is cognitive behavioral, but she integrates tools and techniques from other approaches according to the needs of each patient, thanks to her training in mindfulness, mindful eating, attachment theory and systemic (family) therapy.

Having had the opportunity to live for long periods in Spain, France, the United States and Venezuela, Verónica understands very well the challenges and needs of foreign students and expatriate families. She considers herself a warm and close person due to her Latin roots, with a clear humanistic vocation and a multicultural vision of the world.

As a psychologist, Veronica believes that to understand is to relieve, so she seeks to understand people from a place of interest and respect, without judging, in order to accompany them through a comprehensive and personalized treatment plan to achieve the desired well-being.
