Legal Services (non attorney)
Thank you for your interest in my profile!
I hope to help you somehow.
I have been a Psychologist for over two decades (besides I can look younger!), interested in helping people to overcome their obstacles to reach their happiness. Most of them are in our mind, but we do not know how to deal with them.
Decades ago “mindfulness” and “coaching” were not a thing. Still, with the time we associated these names with this process.
I consider myself both a Psychologist and a Coach. Let us say a particular fusion.
I am a registered Coaching Psychologist, Chartered Psychologist, and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. Also, I am a member of the American Psychological Society (APA), Society of Counseling Psychology, Society of Consulting Psychology, and the American Psychology-Law Society. I am a licensed Psychologist both in the UK and Mexico.
I have a vast intercultural experience since I have lived, studied, lectured, and researched in different countries and met many cultures in the process. Even one of my fields of work is cultural management and Human Rights. I am currently a collaborator of UNESCO Mexico on these matters (#UNESCOSanLuis #LaCulturaEsUnDerecho).
I am a full-time professor at the University of Guadalajara, Mexico. I spend most time as a researcher. I am a Chartered Scientist by the Science Council (UK) and a National Researcher of the National System of Researchers in Mexico.
I got my PhD from the University of Barcelona (Spain), as an “International Doctor”, where I also got a Master’s degree. Additionally, I got a Master’s degree from the Pompeu Fabra University, as well in Barcelona, and my bachelor in Psychology in Mexico, at the Jesuit University ITESO.
