Languages: Spanish, Catalan, Italian and English.

From childhood I was very clear that I wanted to study Psychology, the mystery of the soul of the human being fascinated me. All my professional and personal trajectory has centered on this discovery, exploring ever more deeply and from different perspectives the Consciousness and its Awakening. That longing led me to study Philosophy, to live and to deepen in different mystical currents and to explore the art in different facets.

After having my beautiful daughter and currently married to Ricard Rotllan, I have found in him the wonderful being with whom to share life and mission: To facilitate the human being to develop spiritually, reconnect and release his inner wisdom, to use his full potential … because I believe in a better world, with people who are in connection with their wisdom, ethical, honest and loving, in contact with their essence.

These were some of the reasons that resulted in the creation of Essential and Essential Coaching … and in short, to explore and use everything that is useful to help people to live more fully and with more sense The areas of its life, applying it also to the social and organizational sphere.

The result of these almost 30 years of work: Essential Institute.

… May wisdom accompany you.
