Teresa Bas Baslé, MA, MA, Lic
Clinical psychologist, Psychotherapist and Dance Movement Psychotherapist
Pl. Tetuan area and Gràcia
I first trained both as a Clinical Psychologist (UB, 1996) and a Contemporary Dancer (since 1988). Later on, following my deep interest in mental health, human relationships, emotions and the relation between body and mind, I trained as Psychotherapist (UB, 1997-2000) and later as a Dance Movement Therapist (UAB, 2002-2005).
Working freelance in private practice and different institutions since 2000, I have a broad experience as psychotherapist and dance therapist working individually with adults suffering from mood disorders, anxiety, social/relational difficulties, life crises and other general life difficulties. As a dance movement psychotherapist, I also work with women around pregnancy and first motherhood, children and families, and I organize groups of Dance Movement Therapy (DMT) and Authentic Movement for adults interested in developing their self-awareness through movement and body awareness.
I also work as a trainer, lecturer, co-therapist and supervisor in DMT in different centers and universities. For 8 years I have been part of the training team of the Masters program in Dance Movement Therapy at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, as co-leader of student supervision groups, lecturer, co-therapist of student experiential groups and tutor.

My view on psychotherapy and DMT is very integrative, taking aspects of relational psychoanalysis, humanistic psychology and family/systemic theory. It is that of safe and nonjudgmental environment in which I engage with the person on meaningful conversations about their inner world, their views on themselves and their relationships to others in the present and the past. We work together with the person’s feelings, dreams, thoughts or intuitions in order to help them express, understand and sometimes make conscious sense of what hurts or is difficult, and transform those aspects they wish to transform.
In DMT, both with adults or children, the “conversations” happen through words as well as movement, play and body language in general.
