Therapists

Elena Monserrat

8 years of experience

I work from an integrative perspective, accepting the needs and goals of each patient, recognising each person's individuality, and adapting my therapeutic approach to best suit each one. Just like creating a "bespoke suit", I tailor my knowledge and emotional disposition to each person when acknowledging their needs and throughout their emotional accompaniment.

I am passionate about accompanying people in their understanding of what they feel, think, and do, as well as in the search for alternatives which contribute to living with more freedom and well-being. My values are authenticity and shared commitment. In therapy, I mainly focus on creating a therapeutic space which is safe and encourages trust and closeness, which is free from value judgements, and where there is a genuine exchange and a process of joint creation.
