  • MD Degree Universidad de Valladolid.
  • Psychiatrist specialist.

Alicia always considered Medicine as her second love; her first one, without a doubt, were books, which she saw as an opportunity to discover new worlds, people, and lives. Along the road she also realized that mastering English meant a huge expansion of possibilities and could be the icing on the cake on her future ahead.

She studied Medicine in Valladolid and during the summers of those years and thanks to the International Students Exchange Program, she had the chance to appreciate the practice of Medicine in other countries: Zagazig (Egypt), Mount Sinai Hospital (New York, USA) and Torino (Italy). With this, Alicia was also able to become aware of cultural differences and the fact that, despite everything background and life experiences, all patients have the same needs.

After passing the MIR exam with flying colors, Psychiatry was her choice in the Hospital 12 de Octubre in Madrid, where the great volume of population and the excellent medical services assured a wide range of challenges and training to become a general psychiatrist. Alicia dedicated her special training to neuropsychiatry in the city of London at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, where she acquired experience in the treatment of the psychiatric consequences of neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, among others.

When she finished the specialty training her first job took her to Complejo Asistencial Bennito Menni of Hermanas Hospitalarias in Ciempozuelos (Madrid) which allowed her to get a fuller picture of Psychiatry (chronic patients, institutionalized for schizophrenia, learning disabilities, autism and more). Later on, she became a member of the nascent Brain Damage Unit Hospital Beata M.ª Ana, a landmark centre for the treatment of stroke and traumatic brain injuries. It was then when she really understood how relevant the psychiatric care is, specially of the patients suffering from the devastating consequences and side effects of their conditions.

Her work in Hospital Fremap de Majadahonda from 2008 to 2022 was dedicated to the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders secondary to traumatological and medical diseases considered work-related (severe traumatic injuries and brain damage), as well as chronic pain (complex regional pain syndrome, chronic low back pain, neuropathic pain and others) and the psychiatric disorders exclusively work-related (particularly post-traumatic stress disorder). The treatment of patients with disabilities requires to tame your gaze to be able to grasp the person as a whole, paying attention not only to their
difficulties, but also to their strengths and with the aim of enhancing them, always keeping the person in sight.

After a family relocation, she went to Alicante, where she was part of the Public Health System (Centro de Salud Mental Altabix, Elche, and Santa Pola), and just like in her daily work in Frema, Alicia cared for patients suffering from the most frequent mental disorders: anxiety, depression, insomnia, obsessive-compulsive disorder. She repeatedly asserts that she likes taking patients off medication much better than putting them on medication, and using as less as possible, choosing the drug with the most appropriate profile for each individual patient.

In the last 12 years she has combined her clinical job with the translation from English to Spanish of medical texts for GEA editorial, which allows her to maintain her medical English updated as well as staying informed of the numerous advances in the field of Medicine.

To our Sinews team, Alicia brings a great deal of experience with patients who suffer from medical problems and neurological disorders, which allows to treat each person as a whole and offer them integral solutions from a humanist standpoint.

  • General Health Psychologist.
  • Degree in Psychology, San Jose State University, San José, California, EEUU.
  • Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, Santa Clara University, California, EEUU.

Although Guillermo was born in San Sebastián (Basque Country), he has lived in different parts of Spain and the United States, which is why he considers himself multicultural, bilingual and somewhat nomadic. During the last years he has lived and worked between Madrid and Miami, which allows him to be in contact with different cultures.

One of his greatest interests from a young age was to understand how our personality develops, what motivates us to be the way we are, and why we behave in a certain way. He also wondered why some people seem to be happier and more adaptable to life’s circumstances than others. Guillermo was able to convert this interest in people into his vocation and professional career, which he has been doing for more than 20 years. In 1996, Guillermo graduated from San Jose State University (California) with a degree in Clinical Psychology and in 2001 completed a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Santa Clara University (California).

Throughout these years, Guillermo has come to the conclusion that people are constantly changing and evolving. Who we are and how we behave is not only a product of genetics and the experiences we live, but also of our values, of what we believe is most important.

What Guillermo values ​​most personally at the moment are his family and personal relationships, since these give him security, love and affection, a space for growth and structure. Another essential value for him is «experience». Perhaps because he has been an expatriate all his life, he needs to face new challenges and meaningful experiences that allow him to continue learning and growing. «Humanism», or in other words, solidarity and interest in people, is what motivates him in his vocation and gives meaning to his work as a psychologist. Helping and guiding his clients on their way to a satisfying life consistent with his vision, is for him, his «daily bread.» Finally, he also considers «effort» essential: feeling that he has given his best, since sometimes the results are not completely in our hands.

During his training in California, Guillermo specialized in Mental Health diseases (Depression, Bipolarity, Anxiety, Personality, etc.), carried out research in the area of ​​multiculturalism and actively participated in promoting a health system open to immigrants and the minorities. Recognizing the importance of the family in the Latino culture, he delved into the study of Systemic Theories and worked with several organizations providing training to low-income families in communication, organization and education issues.

At the turn of the millennium, Guillermo returned to Madrid (Spain) with the aim of providing his children with family warmth and cultural roots. Professionally, he specialized in the treatment of addictions and drug dependencies, working as a clinical psychologist and supervisor of several programs (Hospital and Intensive). Undoubtedly, for Guillermo this work was wonderful because, as he says, his clients taught him the great achievements that we are capable of achieving. Working with people severely addicted to alcohol, cannabis, heroin, tranquilizers, cocaine, and other stimulants, he witnessed extraordinary recoveries.

Perhaps one of the experiences that changed him the most was developing a Family Care Program in the Neonatal Unit (NICU) at the 12 de Octubre Hospital in Madrid, where he supported parents of newborns and premature babies (24 weeks) or with serious illnesses. This pioneering program in Spain assisted many families during the arduous and painful process of staying in a NICU.

In the year 2012, Guillermo decided to migrate with his family back to the United States with the aim of continuing his professional development, and give his children the opportunity to live abroad, learn another language and culture. During the following 6 years, Guillermo had the opportunity to collaborate on numerous projects, from working at the Florida International University (FIU) guiding university students, or implementing a Mental Health and Addiction Treatment program for HIV/AIDS patients, to help immigrants in deportation proceedings or applying for asylum in a humanitarian way.

During this last stay in the US, Guillermo has also acquired training and experience in the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy and the Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT) from Dr. Sue Johnson. These scientifically validated therapeutic models help couples to experience and share their emotions and basic emotional needs, and structure new interactions between the members of the couple or the family, in a way that creates a more secure bond. In addition, couples learn what the pillars of a healthy relationship are, and develop the tools to maintain a satisfactory, balanced relationship consistent with their values ​​and needs.

Recently, Guillermo returned to Madrid with his family. Although he continues to collaborate with projects in Miami, assisting clients with complicated immigration situations, he has been collaborating with SINEWS since 2022, with the aim of continuing to develop as a psychologist and coach, and to continue contributing wherever it is needed. He has recently completed training as an Executive Coach and obtained the PCC certification through the “International Coaching Federation” (ICF).

Guillermo’s fundamental objective as a professional is to help his clients find solutions to their problems, and to develop the necessary tools to overcome complex situations and regain balance on their own.

  • Licence en Psychologie, Universidad Rey Juan Carlos.
  • Master en Psychologie Génerale Sanitaire, Universidad Europea de Madrid.
  • Master en Neuropsychologie Clinique, Instituto Superior de Estudios Psicológicos.
  • Formation en psychologie clinique de l’enfant et de l’adolescent, Instituto Superior de estudios Psicológicos.

Alejandro Sancha est un psychologue clinicien avec une vaste expérience en thérapie cognitivo-comportementale et en évaluation intégrale et réhabilitation des individus confrontés à des lésions cérébrales acquises.

Il connaît de première main les défis que les déménagements internationaux posent aux enfants et à leurs familles, ayant vécu dès son plus jeune âge dans différents pays (Colombie, Équateur et Pérou). À cette époque, il a été formé dans des établissements éducatifs tels que le Lycée Français de Lima et le Lycée Français de Madrid, où convergent une grande variété de cultures, en rencontrant des professeurs et des camarades de diverses origines.

Dès le début, Alejandro a eu la clarté de vouloir combiner sa passion pour les sciences avec l’intention de générer un impact positif dans la vie des personnes, des intérêts qui l’ont conduit à choisir la psychologie comme carrière.

Son parcours académique comprend des études de premier cycle en psychologie clinique, complétées par deux ans de programmes d’échange international aux États-Unis (State University of New York) et en France (Université Jules Verne).

Son enthousiasme pour les étapes de l’enfance et de l’adolescence l’a amené à obtenir un master en psychologie clinique de l’enfant et de l’adolescent. Pour Alejandro, ce sont des moments cruciaux où convergent une grande variété de changements et de circonstances offrant une précieuse opportunité de générer un impact positif dans le développement du potentiel de chaque enfant.

Curieusement, l’autre extrémité de la vie est également une zone d’intérêt spécial pour Alejandro. Ses grands-parents font partie essentielle de sa vie, et leur soutien et leur influence ont été et sont cruciaux. Conscient des défis posés par le déclin fonctionnel tant dans le vieillissement que dans les lésions cérébrales, il a obtenu un master en neuropsychologie clinique pour aider ses patients à traverser de la meilleure manière possible ce chemin. Ses stages au centre de rééducation des lésions cérébrales de Polibea Sur lui ont permis de mieux appréhender le défi quotidien auquel font face les personnes touchées et leurs familles.

Pendant ses études de master, il a fait partie du groupe de recherche en psychologie clinique et santé, participant au projet de recherche «Stress parental et handicap. Un programme d’entraînement à la flexibilité psychologique à l’ère de la COVID-19» à l’Université européenne de Madrid.

À travers des cours, des congrès annuels et des formations complémentaires, il maintient un engagement dévoué envers le développement professionnel continu, reconnaissant son rôle fondamental dans la garantie de la plus haute qualité des services de santé.

Avec l’expérience d’avoir vécu en Colombie, en Équateur, au Pérou, aux États-Unis, en France, en Espagne et en Inde, Alejandro a cultivé une profonde appréciation de la diversité culturelle et une compréhension unique des complexités inhérentes aux différents environnements de vie.

Dans sa pratique professionnelle, menée en anglais, français et espagnol, Alejandro adopte une approche scientifique, plaçant le bien-être de ses clients au premier plan.

Son travail se caractérise par aider les personnes à acquérir une compréhension approfondie des processus psychologiques qui sous-tendent leurs expériences, en leur abordant les connaissances et les stratégies nécessaires pour relever efficacement les défis de la vie.

La passion profonde d’Alejandro pour comprendre le comportement humain et les principes scientifiques qui le sous-tendent alimente son engagement à faciliter le parcours de ses clients vers le bien-être psychologique. Son objectif ultime est d’accompagner les personnes avec lesquelles il travaille avec des stratégies pratiques pour le développement personnel et un changement positif durable.

  • Undergraduate degree in Speech Therapy by the University of Málaga.
  • Master’s Degree in Early childhood care by the Complutense University of Madrid (currently studying.)

Born and raised in Málaga. At the age of 8 she followed her parents who engaged a professional project in the UK,  where she attended a British school in Golborne, Lancashire. This relationship with the UK was maintained over time. Every year during the month of July she and her brother would attend school with their British classmates.

Thanks to this submersion in British culture and language she is fully bilingual. At the age of 12 she was already volunteering to help the teachers with the younger grades. From the age of 15 she would teach Spanish in British secondary schools during the summer.

It has always been clear to her that children learn through play, hence the importance of making the sessions fun and stimulating for them. Mariló has been working with children all her life and her first challenge as a speech therapist was to support a child within the Autistic Spectrum, with whom she has been working for almost two years, helping him with pronunciation and reading and writing difficulties and improving the way he expresses and communicates his thoughts and opinions to others.

Her interest in helping the hearing impaired has led her to learn sign language. She currently has an A2 level and plans to continue studying.

During her internship at Asociación Arrabal A.ID., which offers services to low-income individuals and families, she worked with children with developmental delays, hearing impairment, learning difficulties and reading and writing delays, among others.

For her Final Degree Project, she reviewed the bottle and cup feeding methods for premature babies, studying the evidence on the advantages and disadvantages of each one (swallowing is also a field of speech therapy).

Currently, she is enhancing her training by taking a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Care offered by the Complutense University of Madrid, where she will improve her techniques to help the little ones in the development of language, even before they speak their first words.

  • Magister Psychologii (Uniwersytet Warszawski, 1 rok na wymianie studenckiej na Universidad Complutense de Madrid).
  • Tytuł Psicólogo General Sanitario (UDIMA) uprawniający do wykonywania zawodu psychologa w Hiszpanii.
  • Szkolenie Psychoterapeutyczne w nurcie Psychoterapii Gestalt – Instituto de Psicoterapia Gestalt w Madrycie.
  • Studia podyplomowe z zakresu Zaburzeń ze Spektrum Autyzmu (Universidad Miguel de Cervantes/Fundación Gatea).
  • Studia podyplomowe w zakresie Wczesnej Interwencji (Universidad Pontificia de Comillas).

Marta jest psychologiem i psychoterapeutką. Pracuje z dziećmi, młodzieżą i dorosłymi. Marta pracuje integrując nurt humanistyczny z technikami wywodzącymi się z innych szkół psychoterapii takich jak poznawczo-behawioralna czy systemowa, zawsze dostosowując metody pracy do indywidualnych potrzeb pacjenta.

Urodzona w Warszawie, od dziecka uwielbiała podróżować i z dużym zaangażowaniem i łatwością uczyła się języków obcych. Jedna z tych podróży przywiodła ją do Madrytu z założeniem, że spędzi tutaj jeden rok podczas wymiany studenckiej Erasmus na Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Nie są jej więc obce wyzwania z jakimi spotykają się studenci studiujący za granicą. Dzięki temu niezwykłemu doświadczaniu udało jej się nawiązać przyjaźnie z osobami z różnych stron świata, z którymi utrzymuje bliskie relacje do dziś. W rezultacie Marta zdecydowała się przeprowadzić do Hiszpanii i założyła tu wielokulturową rodzinę. Zna w związku z tym zarówno blaski jak i cienie życia poza granicami swojego kraju. W trakcie doskonalenia zawodowego w dziedzinie psychologii pracowała jako nauczyciel angielskiego w szkole Kids&Us, oraz w dwujęzycznym ośrodku Gymboree, prowadząc zajęcia rozwojowe dla dzieci od 0 do 6 lat i ich rodzin.

Marta rozpoczęła swoją karierę jako psycholog we wczesnej interwencji, uczestnicząc w projekcie badawczym dotyczącym dziećmi urodzonych przedwcześnie i ich rodzin na Uniwersytecie Warszawskim we współpracy z Instytutem Matki i Dziecka w Warszawie. Ukończyła studia podyplomowe z terapii dzieci ze Spektrum Autyzmu oraz pomocy psychologicznej w innych trudnościach takich jak zaburzenia lękowe, depresja, ADHD, zaburzenia zachowania, doświadczenie przemocy czy bullying. Prowadziła warsztaty dla rodziców wspierające ich w codziennych trudach wychowania oparte na założeniach Rodzicielstwa Bliskości i komunikacji bez przemocy.
W pracy terapeutycznej z dziećmi używa technik bazujących na zabawie, gdyż jest to najbardziej naturalny sposób wyrażania przez dzieci ich potrzeb i emocji. Marta zawsze stara się, żeby rodzina czuła się częścią oddziaływania terapeutycznego jako czynnik sprawczy zmiany i wspólnie z rodzicami omawia i proponuje sposoby, które mogą ich wspierać w codziennych zmaganiach.

Marta może pomóc rodzicom odnaleźć odpowiedzi na następujące pytania: ¿Jak wspierać dzieci w osiąganiu kolejnych rozwojowych kamieni milowych? ¿Co robić, gdy dziecko doświadcza frustracji i napadu złości? ¿Jak wspomóc dziecko w nawiązywaniu kontaktów z rówieśnikami? ¿Jak rozmawiać z nastolatkiem? I na wiele innych kwestii, które niepokoją rodziców.

W trakcie swojej 10-letniej praktyki, kontynuując pracę z dziećmi i młodzieżą, Marta dalej szkoliła się, zbierając narzędzia oferowane przez różne szkoły psychoterapii i poszerzając swoją praktykę o pracę z dorosłymi. Jako psychoterapeuta dorosłych, Marta może pomóc osobom z objawami depresji czy zaburzeniami lękowymi, osobom, które mają trudności w nawiązywaniu satysfakcjonujących relacji czy w adaptacji do nowych okoliczności, osobom, które przechodzą przez sytuację stresu i żałoby lub są po doświadczeniu traumy lub przemocy.

Dzięki 4-letniemu szkoleniu w nurcie terapii Gestalt, Marta wprowadziła do swojej pracy nowe techniki, które w sposób holistyczny traktują ludzkie doświadczanie z perspektywy tu i teraz. Jej priorytetem jest stworzenie w gabinecie atmosfery zaufania i akceptacji, w której pacjent poczuje się wysłuchany i zrozumiany, bez oceniania. W takich warunkach stwarzamy możliwość pacjentowi do zadbania o siebie i znalezienia odpowiedzi na kwestie, które uniemożliwiają mu osiągniecie poczucia satysfakcji i szczęścia. Praca terapeutyczna to towarzyszenie drugiej osobie na drodze do poszerzenia świadomości o jej mechanizmach zachowania, tak żeby z pomocą terapeuty mogła zmienić te, które przestały jej służyć.

  • 2019. Spécialiste en psychiatrie, orientation enfants et adolescents, Université catholique de Louvain (Bel.) Diplôme obtenu summa cum laude.
  • 2014. Diplôme (de premier et de deuxième cycle) en médecine, Université catholique de Louvain (Bel.) Diplôme obtenu cum laude.

Dr Alma Moser, née en France d’une mère française et d’un père allemand, a grandi dans un environnement diversifié et international, vivant dans plusieurs pays européens et aux États-Unis (Floride). Au cours de ses études secondaires, elle a également passé six mois à Toronto, au Canada, où elle a découvert la culture et le mode de vie canadiens.

Dr Moser a choisi la médecine en pensant à la psychiatrie avec l’idée d’approfondir ses connaissances sur la façon dont le corps et l’esprit fonctionnent ensemble et les influences qu’ils ont l’un sur l’autre. Après la première année de médecine au Luxembourg, le Dr Moser a poursuivi ses études à l’Université Catholique de Louvain en Belgique. Puis en tant qu’étudiante universitaire, elle a décidé de passer un semestre à Santiago du Chili, pour travailler en espagnol dans un service de psychiatrie local. Au cours de ses études, elle a expérimenté ce que cela signifiait de commencer à vivre et à travailler dans un nouveau pays, avec une nouvelle culture, une nouvelle langue et en reconstruisant un réseau social. En 2019, après avoir épousé un Espagnol, le Dr Moser s’est installée avec sa famille multilingue à Madrid.

En bref, Dr Moser connaît parfaitement l’expérience des expatriés et des multilingues et est capable de faire preuve d’une grande empathie envers les patients qui se trouvent dans cette situation.

Au cours de ses cinq années de résidence en psychiatrie en Belgique, elle a travaillé avec des patients de tous les âges et a eu l’occasion d’exercer sa profession dans différents environnements de travail tels que l’hôpital, les Urgences, le centre de santé ambulatoire et l’hôpital de jour, où elle a pu apprendre et mettre en œuvre des traitements validés pour des pathologies mentales comme la dépression (y compris post-partum), l’anxiété, la schizophrénie, le trouble de l’attention avec hyperactivité ou les troubles alimentaires, entre autres.

De plus, Dr Moser est en dernière année d’une formation de quatre ans en psychothérapie psychanalytique pour enfants et rédige une thèse sur “les secrets de famille“ et leur impact sur le transgénérationnel. Elle a travaillé avec des enfants et des adolescents souffrant d’autisme, de troubles du comportement, d’automutilation et de pensées suicidaires.

En tant que Thérapeute, Dr Moser reste au plus proche des patients et de leur histoire, sachant que chaque sujet est unique, avec ses propres ressources et défis, et mérite des réponses et une aide sur mesure. Cela nécessite de bonnes connaissances théoriques et de la souplesse, associées à une médication uniquement lorsque celle-ci s‘avère nécessaire.

  • General Health Psychologist.
  • Degree in Psychology from Universidad Pontificia de Comillas (Madrid, Spain).
  • Master in Clinical and Health Psychology from Universidad Pontificia de Comillas. (Madrid, Spain).
  • Specialization in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with Children and Adolescents.

Andrea grew up in a family atmosphere with relatives of different nationalities: American, Spanish, English and Argentinian. Andrea was in contact with both languages, English and Spanish, throughout her development, hence her early bilingüism.

After completing a module on social integration, during which she worked for the Red Cross in their departments of employment and immigration, Andrea began her studies in Psychology at the Universidad Pontificia de Comillas de Madrid. During this training period, she balanced her studies with her work as a counselor, intervening in crisis situations, in a hot line destined to children and adolescents at risk (Teléfono ANAR).

After graduating in Psychology, Andrea continued her postgraduate training at the Universidad Pontificia de Comillas in Madrid doing a Master in Clinical and Health Psychology, to which she would add a specialization in cognitive behavioral therapy with children and adolescents. During this period, Andrea also developed various collaborative works with the IES Padre Piquer and Fundación Norte.

It was during the course of the Master when Andrea passed the rigorous selection process to do her internship in Sinews. After two years of training with us, in which she carried out her own cases, primarily from the Adult Department, and simultaneously received training on Educational Psychology with the team working in Kings College in Soto de Viñuelas, Andrea was selected as the best Master’s student of 2013 - 2015 and was elected to join SINEWS clinical team.

Since then, Andrea has acquired extensive experience in clinical work, she has attended numerous adults and adolescents with a diversity problems: bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, complicated grief or mood disorders among others. Andrea´s gained experience on psychoeducational assessments in children and adolescents is also worth mentioning.

One of the populations with which Andrea has gained great experience is college students. Andrea has collaborated with Saint Louise University as a counselor, and since 2015 is in charge of the counseling service offered at the Instituto de Empresa University (IE), treating students who require professional help to cope with their difficulties.

In addition to her clinical work, Andrea has also shown an interest in teaching. Andrea has developed educational workshops for professionals and university students and is an internship tutor for students doing their Masters in Clinical and Health Psychology at the Universidad Europea de Madrid.

Private practice has always been the focus of her professional experience. After four years of collaborating with a well-known Spanish private centre, in 2008 she started her own business (SINEWS) with her two esteemed partners.

Additionally, she has had the chance to develop her professional skills as a psychiatrist and her knowledge of human nature working for five years as a consultant psychiatrist to the prison system where, along with her clinical role, she was in charge of the suicide prevention protocol and collaborated with the ministry of justice as a psychiatric expert.

Dr. Varela has worked for nearly five years as a consultant psychiatrist for Saint Louis University- an experience that has helped her better understand the needs of the university population, particularly those who are studying abroad.

With a PhD in Psychiatry and a thesis on diagnoses, she has never lost interest in investigating and was awarded the Second Place Research Award granted by the SESP in 2007 with a study on the use of psychotropic drugs in the Spanish prisons.

Dr. Orlanda Varela is currently teaching at the UEM’s Psicología General Sanitaria Master’s Degree and is the coordinator of the practical formation of those licensed psychologists selected to complete their specialization at SINEWS.
