about Lidia

My goal in therapy is, therefore, to make the patient conscious of those aspects of the way of perceiving reality that don’t let him/her have a completely fulfilling life according to his/her happiness standards, and change them by others more adaptive. In that process it’s essential that the patient feels understood and accompanied through an empathetic and judgement-free listening, as well as showing a sensitive attitude towards his/her needs in each moment of it. I’ve always known I wanted to dedicate my career to a profession in which I can help other people. Being able of influence their health and wellness is something that makes me feel self-fulfilled and compromised with society. That was the main reason that motivated me to dedicate my time and effort to Psychology.

My work as psychologist is to understand the “glasses” that each patient uses to look reality through, and change those aspects of them that let him/her live in a fulfilling way. If you want to start it, I’m here to walk with you. Since I became an expat myself when I arrived to The Netherlands 3 years ago, I progressively focused on psychological practice for expat population, implementing evidence-based treatments in an integrating way. I conduct sessions in Spanish (native), English and Italian.

about Lidia

Spanish | Italian | English

Siempre supe que quería dedicarme a una profesión que me permitiese ayudar de manera directa a otras personas. Pensar que podía influir en su salud y bienestar me hacía sentir realizada y comprometida con la sociedad. Esa fue la razón principal que me llevó a dedicar mi tiempo y esfuerzo a la Psicología. En mi periodo como estudiante me apasionaba comprender la complejidad del comportamiento humano, pero no fue hasta mi andadura profesional cuando me di cuenta de la importancia de comprender esos comportamientos en el todavía más complejo sistema de creencias de cada persona. Entender de qué manera han influido las experiencias pasadas –entre ellas las relaciones establecidos con las figuras primarias de apego- nos ayuda a entender de una manera profunda la situación actual del paciente, lo cual es fundamental si queremos que la terapia tenga un efecto verdaderamente reparador. Mi objetivo en terapia es, por lo tanto, hacer al paciente consciente de aquellos aspectos de su manera de percibir la realidad que no le permiten tener una vida plenamente satisfactoria de acuerdo a sus propios estándares de felicidad, y cambiarlos por otros más adaptativos. En ese proceso es imprescindible que el paciente se sienta comprendido y acompañado a través de una escucha empática y libre de juicios, y siendo sensibles a las necesidades que presenta en cada momento de la misma.

What I love of being a psychologist – the psychological therapy is always a path that requires a big emotional commitment, but it’s the only path that allows the patient to experience the biggest fulfillment with himself/herself and with the people around.
