About me

I take a non-diagnostic approach, influenced by Eastern healing philosophies, and combined with modern therapeutic techniques. I also perform comedy, so I bring a sense of dark humor to my sessions too when appropriate, especially with couple’s therapy. I believe that when a therapist can be herself, in and out of a session, she can also potentially empower her clients as who they are.

I believe in the power of integration and becoming our unique selves, imperfect and totally original. I believe that change comes from acceptance. I believe that it takes a life time for us to be on the journey of returning to our “origin”.

I’m Yoky, a professional therapist and artist based in Sitges and Barcelona. I’m passionate about individual and couple’s therapy, as well as therapeutic group work. My approach is integrative, somatic, and relational, co-explored with my clients at their pace.

I’m keen to meet you and accompany you in your healing journey, wherever you might be, in tears and laughters, in light and shadows.

What motivated me to become a therapist is my own personal growth and healing journey, having come from a rather challenging childhood. I find the integration work extremely important for our personal growth, well-being, and living our fulfilling human experiences. I have lived in China, U.S.A, and now Spain. (LGBTQ+ member; cross-culturally trained.) My last name 俞 in ancient Chinese means “healing”! So that’s pretty much my calling for life.

Testimonials from some recent therapeutic encounters:

Couples Therapy: “Working with Yoki has been great! We have greatly appreciated how her work is embodied and experiential, to the core of of our patterns and held with true compassion and curiosity. I highly recommend her!”

Individual Therapy: “Yoky is a beautiful, gentle soul!… I didn’t realize how much I needed her! She was very patient and attentive, and created a safe environment for me to be able to express myself comfortably. I think what made these sessions so special, was her ability to connect with my energy and help me touch deep into places I had avoided before. As hard as it was, she guided me into finding inner peace with the subject. I want to thank you, Yoky, for being the beautiful spirit that was sent to me.”

Group Therapy: “Yoky is totally unique, the way she holds space for others is a perfect balance of depth and lightness. You can feel you are in the presence of experienced healer and facilitator who is 100% committed to equally guiding and supporting everyone in the room. I am very impressed 💙🙏”

“…a heart relieving, powerful experience. Such a beautiful way to connect and share, to create and heal. Loved every bit of it and especially appreciated the sensitive and profound manner through the different exercises, always so conscious and caring.”

“…She created such a safe, supported, gentle and caring environment… to share, heal, laugh, cry, connect, dream and get inspired.”
