Speak, so that I may see you. Socrates (470-399 BC)
Psychotherapy is a method based on the relationship between patient and therapist, trust and dialogue.
During the self-discovery process you'll find the source of your problem and an unexpected resolution. You will confront your old perceptions and behaviour, and you'll be provided with new ways of facing future challenges.
By working from an unbiased perspective and being able to understand your blind spots I´ll be able to guide you whether it be simply trying to get to know yourself better, or for personal and professional development. My unbiased view and understanding of your blind spots will allow you to get the development you seek.
- You'll understand how life experiences have shaped your personality and the way you relate to yourself and others.
- You'll discover your fears, their origin and how to overcome them, and achieve lasting results.

I started treatment with Esther Tapiz while I was living abroad in Barcelona ..
.. I had never lived away from home and was going through a very intense period of depression and anxiety.
Esther was recommended to me by a friend, and I quickly realized why- her patience, calm demeanor and honesty made her someone I could easily open up to.
Throughout the treatment, I discovered more about myself than I had with previous therapists, and I can honestly say that I left the treatment feeling much better than when I started.
As someone who has always been skeptical about psychological therapies, it was refreshing to actually look forward to sessions and in turn, look forward to healing.
My experience was very positive and I wholeheartedly recommend seeking treatment with Esther.
Working with Esther was a truly enriching experience
In just six months, thanks to our sessions, I was able to learn and grow greatly. She patiently worked with me to solve issues in my life as well as guide me in a positive direction to the future. Esther provides her clients with a safe and comfortable environment which yields extraordinary growth.
She is a great counselor and a great person to work with!
Jake, 21 years old,
My emotional state after having been involved in a tragic accident was extremely low...
I no longer wanted to live, and thought it was incredibly unfair that I had survived after what had happened.
I knew that I wouldn’t be able to overcome this mentally without seeking help. Working with Esther enabled me to explain and go into what had occurred by constantly expressing my feelings.
We began by exploring feelings of guilt and the grieving process from an emotional standpoint. There was a particular focus on my anxieties; memories of the accident, dreams, looking at photographs and everyday situations that brought back memories of the accident…
Thanks to Esther’s dedication and professionalism and having built a relationship of trust, little by little, I began to accept events realizing that I’ll never forget what happened but knowing how to deal with it in my daily life.
Over time, he came to me the opportunity to open up again to life, with enthusiasm and excitement of starting a new and hopeful way. This meant for me a turning point in my emotional state, which would not have faced without their help.
At the moment, I continue to work on my emotional state, increasingly leaving the accident behind, and dedicating myself to normal day-to-day problems that crop up.
I recommend the invaluable help of Esther for adverse situations which may occur as well as for working a general improvement in our everyday thoughts, emotions and behaviour.
While studying for a semester in Barcelona I was having trouble adapting to the cultural shock..
My school recommended I saw Esther for counselling to help overcome my shock and enjoy my time abroad.
Through visiting her I was able to understand myself better as a person. Each session our conversations grew as we began to know each other. I was able to trust her and she helped me see problems from different views that I never thought of.
Part of my culture shock was the language barrier. It was nice to have a convsersation in English.
I would highly recommend visiting her!
