Meditation, mindfulness and deep relaxation
Meditation and the meditative state as a work tool
The meditative state is at the base of everything I do when I work. Whether I am with a single person doing a therapeutic session, or with a large group teaching meditation, my work tool is always the same. And it is not a tool that I can go and just get.
The meditative state is not something that can be searched and found. It’s something that just happens when we suddenly find ourselves empty. The meditative state finds the space and sneaks in, and from there it grows and expands until it ends up encompassing everything.
What do I offer?
Deep relaxation therapy
Since I work with deep meditative states that induce relaxation, my sessions are indicated for all kinds of emotional or physical problems for which relaxation can be useful: stress, anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, fears, phobias, situations of mourning, tiredness, life weariness and lack of motivation, depression, pain, addictions, traumas, etc.
One-to-one counselling sessions
If you are going through a phase of doubt, crisis or vital stagnation, my work is also indicated for you. I provide accompaniment in moments of doubt or existential crisis, as well as in what has been called “spiritual emergency situations”. In fact, I am specialized in handling difficult situations related to spiritual awakening and high sensitivity.
Meditation and mindfulness classes
I have regular mindfulness style meditation groups in Barcelona and Mataró. I also offer tailor-made workshops for private groups or companies, as well as individual meditation classes, and private sessions to resolve doubts for beginners and people with an advanced level.

My first contact with the meditative state was not sought and was not welcome until many years after it had occurred for the first time. It was so abrupt, so intense and so unexpected that it took me a long time to learn to deal with it, but little by little the meditative state itself instructed me and, as I was offering less resistance, he was being more gentle and gentle with me.
I began to experience deep meditative states spontaneously at the age of 26 (I am now 48), within the framework of an intens body movement work based on bioenergetics. After a while I found myself sharing those states with others, and over the years, that sharing became my profession.
Suddenly, and almost without realizing it, I found myself acting as a therapist, with the meditative state at the base of my work.
I am, however, a very social person, and although I love my work in one to one sessions and I would not change it for anything in the world, I missed being part of a group, a community. And I have searched a lot, but precisely because my first contact with the meditative state was outside of any cultural context, and because it was such an intense and radically intimate process, I have never been able to integrate into an already established lineage or school (of any tradition), despite the many attempts I have made.
It has been such a radical personal relationship that transmitting my own experience is, for now, the best way I have found to feel accompanied. And that’s why I teach now, because I need to feel that I belong to something, and because teaching is the most effective way I have to learn right now.
«My experience with Berta’s work has been really fantastic. There was a moment in the middle of one session when I felt my body was about to fly and a massive weight was being lifted off my shoulders.
Berta helped me to be honest with myself and to make difficult resolutions about my life that changed my personal situation completely for the better».
«I should say that I’m not one who usually goes in for this sort of thing. I first went to Berta on the recommendation of a friend. I recall thinking, what have I got to lose?
Lucky call- sessions with Berta have been tremendously helpful to me in sorting through the difficult parts of life and in getting focused on what’s important.
Aside from posessing the clarity of an excellent therapist, Berta provokes real changes with her energy work, you can feel them physically. After a session with her I feel calm, invigorated, and prepared. I can’t recommend her highly enough».
«I felt as though, with Berta, we were working to “harmonize the soul”. At the end of each session I felt light and joyful. It wasn’t that I felt any one thing in particular, but after several weeks without seeing Berta I felt as though I was missing something I couldn’t quite explain.
Occasionally, after some sessions, I felt as though someone had literally taken a weight of my shoulders. Her sessions act to sooth my soul».
«During my sessions with Berta I felt a pleasant sensation of opening, of communication and of peace. Now I know that I will never be alone again».
