About Lourdes

Ever since I have memory, I have been a seeker, looking inside and getting to know myself better than I knew anyone else. And I have, somehow, always accompanied others along their ways too.

I worked as a photographer for almost 20 years, documenting the lives of people who were suffering. Whether they were immigrants in dire conditions, children with health problems or women in difficulties in countries where they had no rights, I was always surprised by the many things that made us equal rather than different. Humanity is made from our emotions, thoughts, our body and how we relate to all of these. And they are mostly universal, independent from the context.

Seven years ago, I decided to change my way and accompany others from a different side: not just being a witness to their stories, but also helping them transform their difficulties into self-knowledge and new tools and resources that allow them to live better. I got certified trainings in Systemic work, Gestalt Therapy, NLP, Wingwave Coaching®, Body and Art work, online Art therapy and other disciplines that allowed me to better understand our humanity and how we can be at peace with ourselves, with others and with Life.

And here I am, working as a therapist, mixing all the experience and knowledge I have with a genuine interest for human beings, their pain and difficulties and their will to improve their lives.

My Approach

I help my clients listen carefully to the symptoms that tell them something is unbalanced, in order to decode and comprehend the deep messages behind them and achieve healthier lives. We are complex systems where mind, heart, body and soul are constantly relating to each other. Depending on many factors, the relationships between our mind, heart, body and soul can be healthy or not, what will directly affect the extent to which we can live at peace and in balance.

I intuitively apply a mix of all the techniques and methods that I have learned depending on the client's needs in every moment of the session. Gestalt therapy and the systemic approach are the foundations that hold my work, and I trust the wisdom of my clients needs signals demanding additional resources, whether it is an EMDR intervention, an artistic exercise or body work. Each sessions is different from the others.
