About me

I am Maria R. de Almeida. I became a psychoanalyst because Psychoanalysis changed my life. 

I did my personal analysis and my psychoanalytical training  in “Grupo Cero” School of Psychoanalysis (most important school of Psychoanalysis in Spain) where I continue my Continuous Professional Development as psychoanalyst:​

  • Undergoing personal analysis and clinical supervision 
  • Attending seminars (Freud, Lacan and Psychosomatic Medicine)
  • Attending and contributing to conferences and symposiums​

My experience is combined with professionalism to offer a service of the highest quality for anyone who needs our services. My continuous and permanent training makes my patients feel that they are in the best hands, I truly take care for their mental health. For each case, I work with a team of psychologists, psychoanalysts and a department of psychosomatic medicine.

What makes me different from a “traditional” psychoanalyst is my background: My path and working experience (both in start ups and in corporates) has enabled me to understand the challenges someone can face in their everyday life. Believe it or not, you can build everything: friends, a boyfriend, a job, health, a home… Everything in the human being is to be built. And in fact… you have to build it. Everything requires some working. Psychoanalysis helped me not only to understand that but also through all the process. Read my blog to get all the story 😉!

If you asked me why I became a psychoanalyst, I would say… because I love art and science, I love people and… I would like everybody to be able to build the life they want!
