Jordi Puertas
New teacher

New Diamond Logos Teacher,  I have been a student of Faisal Muqaddam since 2013. Overcoming difficult challenges in my life by opening myself to healing my traumas and wounds inspires my passion and dedication to accompany others on their paths of reconnection with what is essential, and to navigate difficult times in order to open ourselves to celebrate life in its fullness. Having gone through these experiences and feeling grateful to support others in their journey, I feel a deep sense of hope, compassion and confidence that others can also successfully overcome their own challenges. My approach is holistic and deeply rooted in somatic psychotherapies, focusing on the mind, body and spirit connection. In training and ongoing supervision, it allows me to delve into the present in studies of bonding and attachment psychology, spirituality, neuroscience and trauma resolution and integration of implicit memories, from pre and perinatal psychology.
