ESTHER TAPIZ

CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST, Psychotherapist AND HUMAN RESOURCES CONSULTANT

Surely, most of us will agree that the best way to grow personally is through self-knowledge. In my case it is not just a belief, but a reality that I have found throughout my life and career.

Over the past 15 years I have dedicated myself to helping others understand what's the matter and finding the best way to cope, improving their quality of life in a profound and lasting way.

At the moment, besides my private practice, I work with public and private mental health clinics treating children, adolescents and adults. This diversity has allowed me to get to know the most common problems and their treatment, from different viewpoints.

I was educated in English schools, which opened my eyes to other customs and traditions and aroused my curiosity on the culture integration process. As a result, I've been able to specialize in helping English-speaking foreigners to adapt to the local culture.
