My objective and SeiLá
- Clara Trens
Educational psychologist and psychopedagogist. Currently studying Neuropsychology of Educaction
I created SeiLá with the aim of combining my vocation, education, training and experience. Motivated by my passion for psychology, I am excited to provide support for all types of students who want to improve performance and overcome problems. I have focused on building my repertoire within the field of educational psychology, providing SeiLá to parents, as the answer to the concerns of their children, in regard to their studies, behaviour and ambitions.
My goal is to help children and teenagers grow. In SeiLá we guide students undergoing different situations or difficulties. This includes children who have high intellectual abilities, a hidden talent or low academic performance and youth undertaking difficult decisions concerning their academic path. We encourage children not to focus on their doubts as this may cause further problems.
During a child’s education, they are constantly evolving, acquiring new knowledge and discovering the world. These experiences effect both their personality and path in life. For this reason, educational and emotional support is necessary outside the family and school context. They require a place to grow, learn and discover talents along with accepting their limitations with optimism.
SeiLá is a modern concept in the field of psychology. It is a useful tool for parents and their children, undergoing the most significant moments of personal development: childhood and adolescence. Stages in which it is usual to feel distant from the educational and social system. We collaborate closely with the school, in order to have an extensive vision into the student’s contexts.
SeiLá will help parents and children to be courageous, optimistic and brave people.
As a psychologist I am committed to contribute to the success and happiness of people.
