Dr. Monica Alferez Calvo
Dr. Alferez Calvo graduated in General Medicine from the UAB (Autonomous University, Barcelona) and became a specialist in Psychiatry in the UK (MRCPsych) with the Royal College of Psychiatry.
Her practice in general adult and liaison psychiatry confirmed that medicine was only part of what people found beneficial from their contact with psychiatrists and so her interest in the therapeutic relationship and psychological therapies grew.
She went on to obtain a diploma in Cognitive Therapy for severe mental health problems from the University of Southampton and later completed Cognitive Analytical Therapy practitioner training with ACAT in Hampshire. She has also undertaken DBT awareness training with Southern Health NHS Trust and has completed foundational training in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy with the University of Oxford Mindfulness Centre.
