Contributing to and helping other people’s development has been a constant in Mar’s professional career. She enjoys sharing her knowledge and experience and understands the importance of handling conflicts in a healthy way and the benefits that this provides to the person and their environment. Her methodology, that begins with an empirical focus and rises to the theoretical basis, favours the quick assimilation and intuitive incorporation of new concepts and experience. This enables the speaker to experience first-hand the impact it causes on themselves and their relations, developing communication skills and their emotional intelligence; and all this intending to obtain a more satisfactory, fulfilled and ultimately more healthy professional and private life.
