Training & Education
I finished my Medical studies (LMS or MD) to become a Medical Doctor in Spain in 2001. I then completed my training in psychiatry (CCT equivalent) at Bellvitge Hospital, Barcelona, Spain, in 2006.
I completed a Master’s degree (MSc) in Affective Neuroscience at Maastricht University (Netherlands), specialising in Anxiety, Depression and related disorders, and another Master’s degree in Research Methodology in Health Sciences at the Autonomous University of Barcelona in 2007.
I completed my PhD thesis at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London, in 2010.
I have published over 30 scientific articles (including book chapters) in international peer-reviewed scientific publications. I have been an Associate Editor of the Spanish Journal of Psychology, edited by Cambridge University Press as well as an independent reviewer for a range of scientific journals including Archives of General Psychiatry. I have been the Research & Development Lead for Cambian Healthcare from 2013 to 2016.
The General Medical Council (GMC) is the organisation that sets the standards that doctors need to follow in the UK.
I am registered on the Specialist Register as General Adult Psychiatrist with license to practise as a General Adult Psychiatrist. You can check my registration – and that of any registered UK doctor – on the GMC website.
I am a Specialist Associate member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists. I have been Section 12 approved and have had Approved Clinician status since 2011.
