My name is Elsa and I am from the Canary Islands in Spain. I was brought up in Gran Canaria, but I moved to another island, Tenerife, to study my Bachelor in Psychology. I decided to study Psychology because I like to understand the behaviours and emotions of people and help them to be happy.

I have also lived and studied in England when I was a teenager.

In Spain, I have lived in Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Madrid and Almeria, but currently, I live in Amsterdam.

I also lived in Morocco, where I worked as Project Expert for the International Cooperation, within Educational Projects that the Spanish Government funded directly to the Moroccan Government.

I have moved a lot and started from scratch, several times. I have a deep understanding, from personal experience, of what it is like to be an expat and live in a multicultural environment.

As a psychologist, I have specialized and worked several years in Autism Spectrum Disorder and Speech Disorders, in private practices and in the World Autism Organization. I also was the responsible person of the Canarian Association of Autism Spectrum Disorders.

As I was working in social and International NGOs, I took a Master in International Cooperation and Project Management, and another one in Management in Corporate Responsibility, which is the link between companies and NGOs.

I continued my studies in Psychology with an MSc in Eating Disorders (anorexia, binge eating,…) and Obesity, and an MSc in Systemic Family Therapy. I also have trained as EDMR I for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

I am a Certified Coach by ICF, and with the current situation of Coronavirus, I have trained in Emergencies.

I work in a multidisciplinary way and will coordinate our work with the professionals that attend you in other services, likes teachers at schools, speech therapists, doctors, sports activities, nutritionists,…

My work is based on the principals of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Systemic therapy.

Degree in Psychology

Master in General Health Psychology

Master in Emotional Intelligence

Master in Positive Psychology and Strengths Coach

EMDR (adults)

I am Ana, I was born and live today in Madrid. My working life begins in the Human Resources Department of a large multinational, living the process of how a large foreign company buys the two largest groups in the sector in Spain. This was a great event in the national business world, moving from working with traditional methods to modern and innovative management in a short space of time.

Transferred for family reasons as an expat to Colombia, I had the opportunity to study Anthropology at the Universidad Javeriana de Bogotá. I lived in this city for a difficult time: displaced persons, guerrillas, kidnappings and a major exodus due to the worst economic and social crisis that the country was going through, witnessing once again major changes, this time at the national level.

Three years later, in Palo Alto, California, I continued to be educated in International Studies and Anthropology at Stanford University, further delving into cultural diversity and the study of human nature.

On my return to Spain, I joined the Operational Marketing department of Coca-Cola, collaborating in the internal communication of the company and supporting the team of regions, developing competencies such as flexibility, tenacity, creativity and enthusiasm. After a year I turn my work life around and set the goal of working to increase the well-being of people so I decided to study Psychology at the Complutense University of Madrid, with specialization in Clinical Psychology, Master in General Health Psychology, Master in Emotional Intelligence, Mindfulness and Positive Psychology, EMDR, Contemplative Neurosciences, Emergencies and Crisis.

I have experience in private and public clinical practice (General Hospital of Villalba, Jiménez Díaz Foundation) attending to oncology groups, eating disorders, obesity and pre and post-bariatric surgery, panic and agoraphobia, cardiology (post-heart attack) and individually attending to the referrals of the Health Centers. Psychology nourishes me at all levels, it is a path of constant self-discovery, training and putting myself at the service of others from a neuroscientific perspective.

Rafaela Zorzanelli

I am a clinical psychologist and an Associate Professor at the State University of Rio de Janeiro. I am living in the Netherlands since 2018, where I came to spend one year as a visiting researcher at Utrecht University.

My academic training was always combined with my career as a psychologist with a psychoanalytical background. I have over twelve years of experience in my private office and as a clinical volunteering psychologist at the Institute of Psychiatry of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.

My interests in the academic field have always been attached to mental health, e.g., the impact of diseases on people’s lives, the burden of not having diagnosis when you suffer from a “contested illness” and more recently, the lived experience of people who are chronic users of psychotropics, such as tranquillizers, opioids, and stimulants. My P.h.D was on chronic fatigue syndrome, and the difficulties patients have to face when they suffer from a “contested illness.” After that, I conducted research with a group of fibromyalgia syndrome patients. For years, I dedicated myself to produce knowledge about and to work as a clinical psychologist with people who were struggling with physical and mental complaints without having a “medical finding” to justify their suffering.

I have also been working on public debates and public policymaking surrounding autism, as well as support groups for the families; medical controversies and social movements surrounding attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in Brazil and Argentina; with people who do not recognize themselves in the body they were born with, and finally the scaling up of psychiatric diagnosis in the world – for the good and the bad.

More recently, I have been working with chronic users of prescription medicines, such as tranquillizers, opioids, and stimulants, and I am preparing a book on that subject. I published a bunch of papers on each of the mentioned subjects, as you can find on the links at the end of this page.

When I think about what I can offer to such a good team like this, the first thing that comes to my mind is the very experience of being an ex-pat brings about a bunch of new experiences that can be really useful to other people with the same experience. Especially concerning Portuguese speakers with whom I think I have the most to give, despite I feel comfortable to work with English-speakers and French speakers. The second point is that I have been trained since 2000, continuously based on a psychoanalytical approach. This is something new that I can offer, mainly because this approach is quite common in Latin America and Francophonic countries, but not so much well known in the Netherlands. This is the kind of approach that Brazilians probably will be more comfortable with – this is my guess. Psychoanalysis is based mainly on the client’s speech. It is very important that we, as psychoanalysts, could listen to the people’s own experiences, sometimes even being traumatic and difficult ones. The words and trying to put our experiences together through word can be a trigger to rebuild the way we think about ourselves and provide tools to cope with the difficulties in life. This process is based on the support of the clinician.

Degree in Psychology

Master in Neuropsychological Assessment and Rehabilitation

EMDR (adults)

Hello, my name is José Manuel, I am Spanish and currently, I live in Madrid. My training as a professional is part of the interest in biology and neuropsychology, to understand the relationship between brain and behaviour, as well as the impact that occurs on both sides when there is some change in these.

My studies began with a degree in Psychology with a specialization in Clinical and a Master’s Degree in Neuropsychological Evaluation and Rehabilitation, both at Camilo José Cela University in Madrid. The field of research I have explored most is memory, forming part of several types of research related to the alteration in executive functions in memory in children and adolescents with ADHD.

I have collaborated in the Jiménez Díaz Foundation with the psychiatry team performing evaluation and diagnosis and in the Electroencephalography laboratory of the Hospital 12 de Octubre de Madrid.

My experience in a private clinic related to psychological care is based on neuropsychological evaluation, diagnosis and rehabilitation in patients with brain damage, ADHD, dementia, cognitive impairment, deficit of executive functions, attentional processes and memory.

My professional goal is to develop my work from the perspective of quality and continuous improvement, with a self-criticism capacity necessary for the responsible performance of my functions, from a flexible mindset and a vision of teamwork in order to increase the efficiency of the results.
