Welcome to psychological consultant Belén Plaza Higueras
“During my stay in the UK, I was doing therapy with Belén over one year and never before had I tried therapy. These professionals have devoted years of their life to studying, so as to help us when we were lost, and I was feeling lost.
When I started to see her I was aware that I was inside a negative spiral, that I was not able to exit myself and in reality needed help. I felt the necessity to save, help and rescue from darkness people who did not want to be helped. As a result I was dragged into their holes of darkness. The attitude of these people generated in me sadness, frustration and pain, but I was incapable of removing these from my life. Thanks to the therapy with Belén, I started to love including my inner self, to be number one on my list, and that only me that could surround myself with emotionally sound people when I had also recovered my sanity.
Now I do not want to be surrounded anymore by toxic people who steal my energy, including those people from my own blood. I started to say no, to let go, not to return to old ways and nor let those who humiliated me or treated me badly. Thanks to this year of therapy, I have stopped crying and suffering because of others. Now I am without limits, feeling that the world belongs to me, and because of this I am going to run after it, and for the record I am going to fill my passport with stamps”.
Thank you very much Belén, I love you

My name is Belén Plaza Higueras, an empathetic, creative, positive and active person. I have always been interested in psychology, health and people. For this reason I decided to study psychology.
My beginnings were in social psychology. Over a period of years I have worked with different types of people (migrants, women, children, young people, mental health patients, addicts). Many people I met at that time encouraged me to do further studies in mental health, maintaining a holistic approach, so I am able to help each person from a different perspective and have a wider vision to allow me to understand them better.
I have different specializations in the field of psychology and with different schools of thought (Cognitive Behavioural, Systemic, Gestalt, Psychodynamic, Energetic, Bio-psycho-social). I consider myself a person deeply committed to society through therapy, which I use to help others or those to come to me for help. I have learnt to expand my knowledge and continue to do so with everyone in my sessions with clients. I feel it an honour and a pleasure through my work as a therapist/psychologist to have helped each and everyone of these clients.
Why holistic psychological therapy?
I consider that each person is different. In the journey through therapy I need to consider this individual psychological variability. For this reason, I undertake different types of therapies. The final goal of the therapy being to achieve harmony and energetic balance between mind, body and spirit.
