Professional statement

My name is Juan, and I'm an expat psychotherapist with over 15 years of experience, primarily using IFS therapy informed by CBT. I'm passionate about helping my clients overcome anxiety, depression, and relationship issues, and to live more fulfilling lives.

I'm here to help you navigate the challenges of difficult transitions in life and thrive. Whether you're struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or issues with belonging, I can help you find the inner strength and resources you need to overcome your challenges and live a happier, more fulfilling life.

IFS therapy is a powerful approach that helps you understand and relate to the different parts of yourself with compassion. CBT is a practical approach that helps you identify and change unhelpful thoughts and behaviors. Both IFS therapy and CBT are effective treatments for anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. IFS therapy can help you identify and heal the underlying causes of your problems, while CBT can help you learn new coping skills and manage your symptoms more effectively.

If you're looking for a therapist who understands your unique needs and can help you overcome anxiety, depression, and relationship issues, I encourage you to contact me for a consultation.

Message to clients

Are you tired of fighting the same battles in your head? Feeling overwhelmed by the pressures of adulting? Does social anxiety keep you on the sidelines? Unlike traditional therapy focused on "fixing" you, I guide clients on a journey of self-discovery and acceptance. We'll explore your inner world with compassionate curiosity, helping you understand and befriend your emotions, not silence them. This approach unlocks lasting changes that go beyond temporary symptom relief.

The pivotal shift happens when we choose to engage in a dialogue with the parts of us we dislike rather than battling them. As we extend compassion towards those parts of us, a transformative journey unfolds. We discover that they were simply attempting to aid or safeguard us in their unique manner. This newfound understanding fosters kindness not just towards those parts but towards ourselves.

In this space of empathy, a profound transformation begins. The weight of unproductive worry starts to lift, paving the way for clarity. Liberation arrives as we break free from the cycle of perpetual self-criticism and relentless self-improvement. This newfound freedom propels us towards confidence, compassion, and an unwavering presence in our lives.

Whether you're struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or issues with belonging, I am here to guide through this transformative process. In my sessions, I provide clear direction with compassionate self-awareness at its core.

If you're looking for a therapist who understands your unique needs and can help you overcome anxiety, depression, and relationship issues, I encourage you to contact me for a consultation.
