About Amaya

Having experienced a fair share of adjustments, I’ve learned firsthand about the challenges of adapting to new places, cultures, and languages. Although it’s definitely a tough journey, it’s also incredibly rewarding.

Besides my work, I love learning about different cultures, languages and traditions. I was recently travelling through Latin America and had the opportunity to learn about different ways of understanding health and well-being. I’m also a very curious person and I have a weak spot for fun facts.

Starting therapy can be a bit scary, but you are not alone, and you will see what a beautiful experience it is to get to know yourself and learn to do things differently. We will navigate this journey together, and work on your well-being every step of the way.

My journey as an expat fuelled. . .

My journey as an expat has fuelled my passion for helping others navigate similar transitions. I know how important it is to feel supported and understood during times of change. That’s why I strive to create a warm, empathetic, and judgment-free space in therapy. Together, we’ll explore your emotions and thoughts freely, finding meaningful solutions and making sense of your experiences.

My goal is to provide guidance to people to develop their skills and their strengths in multiple settings’

Psychodynamic orientation . . .

I obtain my Master in Psychology diploma in 2019 in The Netherlands. While my bachelor’s education was of psychodynamic orientation, I also incorporate evidence-based treatments into my practice, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I have found this integration to be highly effective, as it allows us to gain insight into clients’ histories while employing techniques aimed at facilitating change.
