Elena Blackwood Bilingual Therapist
Elena Blackwood is a bilingual (Spanish-English) psychotherapist working online and in person in Madrid. She studied both in the UK and Spain and has been working for 13 years with the social services in Madrid: in foster care, child protection services, working with people with spinal cord injury and families who are in the process of separation and divorce. At the same time she has always had her own private psychotherapy practice, working with both Spanish and English speakers, in person and online. She offers individual, couples and family therapy, helping people overcome trauma, depression, anxiety and many other mental health issues.
“My main method I use in therapy is Family Systems Theory, analysing family dynamics from the past as a way of being able to move forward and heal old wounds. I feel that our first few years growing up determine how we will attach as adults and so it’s necessary to take a step back and understand where we come from so that we can choose the right path for ourselves.“
