Individual therapy

We will address your concerns by searching for tools and strengths that can help you improve your daily life.

Couple therapy

We will work together to enhance the relationship and strengthen your bond. This can be done with both members of the couple together, individually, or even with just one of the parties involved.

Family therapy

We will work on bonds, coexistence, and communication. In general, we will address your family's needs and concerns to improve its functioning. This can be done with all family members together, individually, or even with just one of the parties involved.

The goal of psychotherapy is to help individuals lead a healthy life and assist them in managing everything related to psychological distress. This is achieved through conversation. In sessions, individuals discuss the challenges they face in their lives, and with the therapist’s assistance, they explore possible solutions to achieve their well-being.

My approach is an integrative model that draws from Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, MRI Strategic Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Structural Therapy. All complemented by knowledge in Cognitive-Behavioral Psychology. Moreover, treatment takes place in an environment of complete confidentiality, comfort, and trust.

An excellent professional with a solid background, very empathetic, and supportive. You can tell she enjoys what she does. She makes you feel very comfortable, which greatly helps in opening up to make the most of the experience.

Delighted and impressed by the strong ability to connect and synthesize; your preparation is evident. You are a powerful combination of energy and techniques, and I'm sure you have a lot to offer to people looking to change or overcome episodes that can disrupt our inner peace.

Thank you, Elvira, for all the work you have done and will continue to do in the future. You are a great professional, and I would personally recommend you anytime. Keep up the excellent work.

Finally there is a place to get therapy in english in Málaga. It has been observed that the effectiveness of the treatment is the same, as well as the methods used, so this choice is at your disposal. The online mode is ideal for people who, for some reason, cannot come to the office (in the area of Malaga city or Cuevas de San Marcos), those who live outside of Spain, or those who need a session during vacations.

Regarding the duration of the treatment, from the model I work with, it’s important that the individual receives as few sessions as possible but as many as necessary. This means that, although the average number of sessions ranges from 3 to 6, each person has different needs and personalities, and the treatment should be tailored to them.

The price for my individual sessions is 55€ (online only 45€). However, if you have financial difficulties accessing this service, please let me know, and I will try to help you find alternatives that suit your needs.

Other work

I have always been a person deeply committed to social causes, and one of the primary motivations that led me to study psychology was the commitment to make this world a better place. For this reason, I not only offer therapy in english in Málaga, but have also collaborated with associations since I was young. I have worked with LGBTQ+ and feminist organizations. In this section, you can find the projects I am involved in to contribute to making this world a better place.

Group Therapy: Take care of yourself to take care of others

After the pandemic, one of the main lessons is the need to learn how to deal with fear. The global health crisis has confronted us with unknown and concerning situations. Now, more than ever, it is essential to understand and manage our fears to move forward with resilience and adapt to this new reality.
