My name is Ana Saval-Badía. I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist and Psychotherapist in 1992 by the University of Valencia.
My passion started with a keen interest in understanding the internal and external factors that influence our behaviour.
Why do we act the way we do?
My first steps were highly guided through Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Research.
And naturally, my curiosity led me to include emotions, intuitions, spirituality, whole body physics, etc.
What do we feel? How do we perceive? What do we believe? How do we integrate our experiences?
A string of curious questions that seem to influence our quality of life.
This search took shape through Reflexology, Shiatsu, Pharmacokinetics/Pharmacodynamics, Clinical Research, NLP, Gestalt Therapy, EFT, Transpersonal Therapy, Bodywork, and Craniosacral Biodynamics, to name a few.
Along my practice, I have worked, among others, with:
stress related conditions
self image distortions
At present, I strive to integrate thought process, behaviours, feelings, intuition, physical responses and transpersonal concepts in the best combination for each individual client.
<<One of the important things to remember about technique .... is your willingness to learn this technique and that technique and then to recognize that you, as an individual personality, are quite different from any of your teachers who taught you a particular technique. You need to extract from the various techniques the particular elements that allow you to express yourself as a personality. The next most important thing about a technique is your awareness of the fact that every patient who comes in to you represents a different personality, a different attitude, a different background of experience. Your approach to him must be in terms of him as a person with a particular frame of reference for that day and the immediate situation.>>
