About me

My name is Amanda Celis, I’m a registered psychologist in private practice and a yoga teacher.

In 2010 I started a personal development and a professional journey that led me to integrate the science and practice of modern psychology with the wisdom and practices of yoga and of mindfulness meditation.

When people ask me about my work, it is hard for me to define it in just one word. I run the risk of limiting the scope of my work, and of being categorized too quickly by a label that doesn’t reflect the reality or the richness of my practice.

My work focuses on supporting people in their self-knowledge journey towards improving their health and psychological well-being. I believe we are all curious by nature, so by paying attention to ourselves we build our capacity for self-discovery and we open up to new possibilities.

These are the three pillars that inform and support my practice

Psychology

Yoga

Mindfulness

We are currently living in a time full of new discoveries about how our brain and nervous system work. Through psychoeducation, psychotherapy, and yoga-based movement and breathing practices we can provide incalculable benefits to our body, mind and social relationships. Everyday I read or listen to new information that is relevant to my work coming from discoveries in neuroscience, positive psychology, yogic philosophy, buddhist psychology and mindfulness-based psychotherapy.

My personal path has led me to meet and work with people that in one way or another were seeking to know, love and develop themselves. My experience in the last decade has led me to integrate a vast body of knowledge that I now share daily with my clients on a one-on-one basis in my psychotherapy practice, as well as in group-settings when delivering workshops on yoga, mindfulness and relaxation practices.

Services

Psychology

My office is located in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain, but I also work online with clients located around the world delivering psychotherapy in English and Spanish. My approach integrates evidence-based psychotherapy models from cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness-based therapy. My clients are adults that need support in dealing with stress and anxiety in different areas of their lives, people that are going through emotional difficulties, those struggling with interpersonal relationships, or those undergoing difficulties during life transitions such as career changes, living, studying or working abroad.

I also support people committed to their personal development and growth. All my clients have in common the need and the interest to know themselves to better adapt and enjoy their lives and personal circumstances. 

Yoga & Mindfulness

I teach group-based Hatha yoga classes. These are well-rounded yoga sessions with a focus on relaxation, breathing practices and movement exercises that combine strength and stretching asanas (yoga poses) tailored to all-level practitioners, including beginners. I offer Restorative yoga sessions, mindfulness meditation, and beginners yoga modules.

Workshops & Events

I deliver group-based workshops and special events focused on building practical skills for promoting health and well-being. In these sessions I combine wisdom from health psychology, neuroscience, yogic philosophy and buddhism. Please check the calendar for upcoming events.
