"I work with evidence based treatment. This means that my therapy is anchored in the latest psychological research"
My name Is Marie Strandberg and I am of Swedish origin. I moved to Spain in the year 2000. Since then I lived on and off in Sweden and in Spain. I also spend longer periods in Argentina and in Scotland due to studies.
I licensed as a psychologist in the year 2007 from the University Pontificia de Comillas in Madrid.
I am authorised to work as a psychologist in Sweden and in Spain. I can offer therapy in English, Swedish and Spanish
My practice is in Nueva Andalucia, Marbella. At the clinic I offer psychological services together with two other therapist both in clinical, organizational and neuropsychology. I also provide therapy by video call if that suits you better.
I work with evidence based treatment. This means that my therapy is anchored in the latest psychological research. My theoretical ground is in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy but I also work with therapies that evolved from CBT which are called the ”third” and the ”fourth wave” CBT. These therapies focus more on acceptance and adapting a mindful approach to our inner experiences instead of trying to change them. I have a special interest in working with trauma. I have therefore choosen to deepen my knowledge in this area with therapies like: EMDR ( Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), prolonged exposure, attachment focused therapy and embodiment approaches. I also work with Internal Family System (IFS) as a complement to other therapies or on its own.
The therapy of choice is always based on an individually assessment where we together make a treatment plan for your specific needs.
I have experience from working in psychiatry, primary care and private practice. I have a vast competence acquired from meeting people from different cultures and backgrounds with all sorts of psychological problems/diagnosis
Since 2014 I am also dedicated time to become a specialist in clinical psychology.
