Saya. Therapy in Barcelona Collaborating Therapist in Her Own Words…

Saya - Adults, Couples

BSc Human Psychology,  MSc Mental Health Studies, PGDip Cognitive-Behavioural Interventions, D Psych Counselling Psychology, Member of British Psychological Society, HCPC Registered Psychologist 

Hi! My name is Saya and I am a counselling psychologist from the UK offering my services as a therapist, coach and counsellor in Barcelona. I work with adults and couples who are experiencing all kinds of difficulties, from daily stresses and relationship problems, to more complex and longer-term difficulties. 

I have diverse experience and training, having worked in mental health for the last 14 years.  My experience includes working with adults in all kinds of services within public and charitable sectors, in hospitals, health clinics, and community settings.

As your therapist I aim to support you in exploring your difficulties and trying to makes sense of yourself so that you can develop an insight from which to address your problems.

One of the most important aspects of therapy is to feel comfortable and contained within the relationship with your therapist. I aim to offer my clients a safe and empathic space free from judgment, within which you are able to explore yourself and address your difficulties at your own pace. Therapy can provide you with a space to reflect and explore, even if you don’t quite know what your difficulties are, and my role would be to accompany and support you in doing so.

My approach to treatment is integrative; I draw on several models of therapy, adapting my approach according to your needs and preferences. The main models I use are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which is a practical approach useful for focusing on the here and now; Psychodynamic, which is useful for shedding light on how our past experiences might be affecting us; and Humanistic, which trusts the client knows best and can thrive within the right conditions. I also have an interest in Compassion-Focused therapy which is proven to be helpful for people who struggle with high levels of shame and self-criticism.

I work with adults experiencing common mental health concerns such as feelings of stress, anxiety, depression, panic, phobias, OCD and more. I also work with clients who want to explore and focus on relationships and interpersonal patterns.

One of my areas of interest is working with psycho-sexual and related difficulties including distress, discomfort and dysfunction relating to sex, sexuality, gender and identity. I consider myself to be a sexual and gender diversity affirmative therapist.

I look forward to hearing from you and accompanying you on your journey with therapy!

Sessions can be in English or Gujarati.
