About me

Hi there! I’m Yoky, a professional therapist, healer, 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 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.

What motivates me to become a therapist/healer 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 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’m keen to meet you and accompany you in your healing journey, wherever you might be, in tears and laughters, in light and shadows.

To book a session, message me here or on WhatsApp: +34 637179864.

My approach

Integrative Approach; Somatic Orientation.
Unconditional positive regard; expressive therapeutic techniques; centered on the client. Parts work. Inner child work. Holistic intervention. Body-centered therapy. Congruence.

Testimonials from some recent therapeutic encounters:

“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.”
