About me

Laura Requena

Psychologist, specializing in health psychology, suicidal behavior and trauma.

I am an experienced psychologist with a proven track record of working in the mental health sector and a BSc (Hons) in Psychology from the University of Chester, UK.
My skills include: working with bereavement, trauma, depression and anxiety disorders, group management, mentoring, report writing and social media in both Spanish and English.
I am a health services professional with three master’s degrees focused on clinical psychology from the University of Deusto and Pablo de Olavide in Seville.
I also belong to the Division of Clinical Psychology and Neuropsychology of the General Council of Official Colleges of Psychologists.
On a personal level I am a mother and I am very involved in positive parenting with my son, which I extrapolate to clinical practice.
