VANESA NIETO, MSC
Mental Health Professional
I decided to study psychology because I wanted to understand how people think and how the mind works. I realized from a young age how mental illness can destroy not only those who suffer from it but also their relatives and those around them.
I have studied, traveled and worked in different countries. These experiences and knowledge have helped me to find the answers to some questions about feelings and people's behaviors. I studied my Master's degree in Health Psychology in the UK. I have even studied neuroscience at Harvard. I researched and published on the subject of how growing up with a parent with a mental illness may affect adulthood and romantic relationships. My research interests are about how difficult experiences during childhood affect your decisions as an adult.
I like to help people who feel stuck in their life or are suffering. I specialized in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and I am also trained in Gottman method for couple's therapy. Over the last few years I have become interested in sports psychology, especially in the relationship between mind and body and the techniques that can improve exercise performance.
