Alvaro is a graduate in Psychology from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. During this period, he got the opportunity to study an academic year abroad, more precisely at the Université Libre de Bruxelles. There, he deepened his French skills, a language in which he is bilingual because of his years at the Lycée Français de Madrid.

He also obtained a Master's Degree in General Health Psychology from the Universidad Pontificia Comillas de Madrid, where its plural formation allowed him to come into contact with different approaches such as cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, systemic, or psychodynamic approach, in which he continues to specialize today, under Dr. Hugo Bleichmar with a postgraduate degree in Clinical and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy from the Universidad Pontificia Comillas de Madrid. He also studied Emotion Focused Therapy under Leslie Greenberg (humanistic) obtaining the level I certificate.

Álvaro has shown interest in many different areas of Psychology, such as attention in crisis, treatment of grief or learning disorders and training in study techniques in the university context.

Álvaro has experience as a clinical-educational psychologist with children suffering from Autism Spectrum Disorders, where he worked in classroom support. In addition, he has worked as a neuropsychologist with children with Learning Disabilities, helping to rehabilitate or compensate their cognitive processes in French and Spanish.

He later worked as a psychologist in the Palliative Care Unit of the San Camilo Health Humanization center, clinically addressing the difficulties of both the patient and the family. He also assisted people in the grief process after death of a loved one using a humanistic perspective.

During the second year of his master’s degree, he worked at the Psychological Attention Service of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, where he attended the population of engineering students, helping them to overcome the difficulties caused by high expectations and to connect with their own needs and personal desires. His experience as a student in a foreign country allows him to better understand the challenges that are faced in that situation: loneliness, adaptation to another culture, integration in an unfamiliar education system ...

Currently, Álvaro continues to work with adult patients in the context of private practice. He combines this work with the clinical- educational intervention with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders in the classroom and at home.
