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 degree 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 also lived and studied in England as a teenager.
In Spain, I have lived in Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Madrid and Almeria, and now 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.
Like many internationals, I have moved countries a lot and started again 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 for several years in Autism Spectrum Disorder and Speech Disorders, in private practices and in the World Autism Organization. I also was the responsible??? of the Canarian Association of Autism Spectrum Disorders.
As I was working in social and International NGOs, I took a Master degree 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 support you in other services, such as teachers at schools, speech therapists, doctors, sports activities, nutritionists,…
My work is based on the principals of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Systemic therapy.
