our services

how can we help you?

At the María Sancho Psychology Center, we provide psychological therapy for children and adolescents, as well as adults and families, who are facing challenges in various aspects of their lives, whether personal, familial, occupational, educational, or social. We also welcome those seeking greater emotional well-being and specific goals in their personal growth.

Our therapeutic approaches are flexible and accessible. Sessions are conducted both in-person at our office and online through platforms like Skype, offering you the convenience of receiving support from wherever you find it most suitable. Additionally, we recognize the importance of addressing needs in specific environments, and thus, we conduct visits to schools and medical centers as an integral part of our therapy, adapting to individual dynamics and requirements.

Whether you're seeking guidance for your children, teenagers, yourself, or your family, our website provides detailed information about the type of psychological assistance we offer in the areas of children and adolescents, as well as adults and families.




 

 

Furthermore, we conduct neuropsychological assessments, which involve a comprehensive process of evaluating brain and cognitive functions. These assessments are crucial for better understanding each individual's cognitive, emotional, and behavioral capacities. They are used to identify and address various neurological and mental health challenges, providing detailed reports and guidance in cases of suspected neurological disorders, learning difficulties, changes in cognitive and emotional functioning, and other essential aspects of holistic health.


 


Moreover, our expertise has led many professionals to trust us for assistance in supervising cases they handle in their own practices. We highly value collaboration with fellow experts and, in this regard, offer supervision services both in-person and through online sessions via Skype. This initiative ensures comprehensive care, backed by a wealth of shared experiences, contributing to the growth and development of both professionals and their patients.



 

 

Lastly, we offer curriculum-based and extracurricular internship programs, as well as training for undergraduate and Master's psychology students. These programs can be pursued independently or in collaboration with Universities. Over these recent years, we have established partnerships with prestigious universities, both nationally and internationally, further reinforcing our mission to contribute to the growth and development of future professionals in the field of psychology.

In terms of psychological therapy, what formats are sessions conducted in?

We offer flexibility to accommodate your preferences and comfort. You can choose to have in-person sessions at our Sotogrande location, where we welcome you in a serene environment conducive to introspection. Furthermore, we provide the option of online sessions via platforms like Skype, allowing you to access support from the comfort of your home or any location of your choice.

It's important to note that our online sessions are equally effective as in-person ones. Through technology, we maintain the connection, focus, and quality of support we offer, ensuring you experience the same level of care and positive results. Your well-being is our priority, regardless of the format you choose. We're here to provide comprehensive support, regardless of your circumstances or location.

 

How long do sessions typically last?

We value your time and strive to offer effective and meaningful sessions. Both individual and family sessions are approximately 45 to 60 minutes in duration. This timeframe allows us to thoroughly address your needs and goals, providing an adequate space for exploration, learning, and growth.

In exceptional cases where the nature of the intervention requires it, we are open to scheduling longer sessions. Your well-being and progress are our priority, and we adjust session durations based on what is most beneficial for you at any given time.

 

How frequently are sessions scheduled?

We understand that each person is unique and has individual needs. Therefore, we tailor the frequency of sessions to your circumstances and goals. Generally, we recommend starting with weekly sessions to establish a strong foundation for our work together. As you progress and experience positive growth, we may transition to follow-up sessions. These follow-up sessions can occur on a monthly basis or be spaced out over several months.

Our flexibility in session scheduling reflects our commitment to ensuring you receive optimal support at every stage of your journey.

 

How is confidentiality protected?

At the María Sancho Psychology Center, we consider confidentiality to be a cornerstone of our therapeutic relationship. We strictly adhere to all data protection laws and regulations to ensure the security and privacy of your personal information. Every detail shared in our sessions is held in strict confidence and only shared with the therapeutic team directly involved in your care.

This foundation of trust creates an environment where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and challenges with complete freedom.

What can I expect from a first session?

The first session is a pivotal point in your growth journey. It's a space where we lay the foundations for our collaboration and begin to explore your needs and goals. During this initial session, you will feel heard and understood as you share your challenges and objectives.

Our focus in the first session centers around two fundamental aspects: assessment and connection. We work together to understand the difficulties you're facing, analyze the mental processes that may be influencing them, and explore the factors contributing to the issue. This process helps us gain a clear and comprehensive view of your situation.

Additionally, we dedicate time to collaborate with you in defining realistic and meaningful goals. We want to understand your desires and aspirations so that we can work together to achieve positive change in your life.

Once we've established our goals, we provide recommendations for the most appropriate intervention. Drawing on our expertise and knowledge, we suggest techniques and tools that suit your specific case.

 

What if I'm seeking help for a minor?

When working with minors, our comprehensive approach begins from the outset, actively involving parents in the process. To start, we arrange a joint session with the parents, delving into the developmental history of the minor and understanding the challenges the family may be facing. This stage is crucial for gaining a complete understanding of the minor's environment and circumstances.

In the next session, we have the privilege of meeting the minor individually. Here, we create a safe and friendly space for the minor to feel comfortable and express themselves confidently. As we progress, sessions alternate, flexibly adapting to the unique needs of each case. This flexibility allows us to adjust to changes and developments throughout the process, providing a highly personalized approach.

We recognize the importance of collaboration with parents and their ability to positively influence the well-being of the minor. Therefore, we provide parents with valuable tools and practical guidance to effectively support their children. Our commitment is to ensure that both parents and the minor feel supported and empowered as we work together toward well-being and growth.

*In the case of psychological therapy involving minors, informed consent signed by parents or legal guardians of the minor is required, and they will be informed of aspects related to the therapeutic process and its progression, maintaining the confidentiality of data deemed appropriate by the professional due to the nature of the intervention and always in the best interest of the minor.

 

What type of therapy do you offer at the Center?

Our extensive training allows us to provide a variety of evidence-based therapeutic approaches. What truly sets us apart is our patient-centered approach, where we tailor techniques to individual needs rather than adopting a one-size-fits-all approach. We recognize that each person is unique, and thus, we strive to customize each therapy to their personality and circumstances.

We have expertise in cognitive-behavioral therapy, systemic family therapy, and EMDR therapy, specialized in addressing trauma. Furthermore, our training in Attachment Theory and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy enables us to offer a comprehensive range of approaches to address diverse needs. Each of these approaches comes with its own set of tools and techniques, and we work closely with you to determine which is most suitable for your unique situation. Our passion for excellence in therapy is reflected in our ability to adapt and personalize each approach, ensuring that each patient receives the most effective and relevant treatment for their growth process.

 

How long does therapy usually last?

The duration of a therapy process can vary significantly depending on each individual's unique needs. Some individuals may experience improvements in a few sessions, while others may require a more extended approach to address complex issues. Generally, the therapy process unfolds in stages, beginning with assessment and goal-setting, followed by regular sessions to work towards those goals.

Our psychologists are committed to collaborating with you to determine the optimal pace and duration of your therapy process. Periodic assessments will be conducted to evaluate progress and adjust the approach as needed. The primary goal is to provide you with the necessary support to experience meaningful and lasting changes in your emotional and mental well-being.

 

What is the cost of sessions and payment options?

The costs of our sessions may vary based on the type of therapy and session duration. Each session has a standard price of €80. However, we understand that session durations may vary based on your specific therapy requirements, so we also offer packages that provide you with the opportunity to benefit from significant discounts when committing to multiple sessions.

We accept credit cards, cash, and also offer the option of payment through Bizum, providing you with flexibility in the payment process. Additionally, we understand individual situations and offer discounts in specific cases. We invite you to get in touch with our reception team for more details on whether you meet the requirements for applying discounts and to address any questions you may have. Your comfort and well-being are our top priorities.

 

Do you work with health insurance or reimbursement?

We do not have direct agreements with health insurance providers, but many of our patients have successfully applied for reimbursements through their health insurance. After each session, we provide an invoice that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement, according to the terms of your policy. The feasibility of reimbursement will depend on your insurance.

 

How can I schedule an appointment at the center?

Scheduling an appointment is straightforward. You can conveniently reach us through our email: info@mscentropsicologia.com, or contact us by phone. Our friendly reception staff will be delighted to assist you, whether through a traditional phone call or via WhatsApp messages at (+34) 687054700. We are here to answer all your questions and help you schedule your first consultation.

 

What happens if I am placed on a waiting list?

Occasionally, when we experience a high demand for patient appointments, our reception team may place you on a waiting list. Despite our efforts to expand our team in recent years, demand remains significant. If you find yourself in this situation, we want to reassure you that we are diligently working to effectively accommodate each patient.

It's important to note that we cannot provide an estimated waiting time, as this depends on the process of other patients and the availability of regular slots. Unlike traditional medical appointments, our priority is to ensure continuity in the therapeutic process, which means we can only schedule an appointment when we can guarantee a consistent weekly slot.

Rest assured that our reception team will reach out to you as soon as availability arises with one of our specialized therapists in your area of need. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding as we work to provide you with the quality care you deserve.
