ABOUT

I am Alazne, located in the Barcelona area in Spain. I hold a Ph.D. in couples relationships counseling. I focus my clinical practice primarily on couples therapy. At my training and university lectures, I teach how to handle couples in treatment and promote healthy relationships starting from the first dating relationships during adolescence. Working with couples has become not only my profession, but also my passion.

My scientific career, along with my clinical experience in couples therapy, led me to discover the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy. Based on the Developmental Model, I teach couples strategies that put them back on a path to growth. A path towards intimacy, connection, understanding, respect, commitment, and mutual support. A path of self-knowledge and discovery of the “other” that allows finding the balance between the “I” and the “we.” A path that culminates in teaching couples to dispel the mistrust and threat that frequently challenge many of the couples I support.

My vision of relationships contrasts with the messages of passionate, conflictive, and toxic relationships fed by current Western society, where mass consumption of films, lyrics, reality shows, and social networks spread messages that increase schemes of emotional dependence, fusion with no limits, and total loss of personal identity. I work hard to counteract these relationship models, teaching strategies that promote safe and healthy bonds, characterized by great respect for each other’s differences.
