English speaking psychiatrist in Madrid, Dr. David López Gómez





Private Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist in Madrid

As the director and founder of mente A mente, I would like to welcome you to our mental health outpatient clinic, a new and comfortable space located in the city centre of Madrid.

In addition to the services I render as a psychiatrist and psychotherapist for adults, I lead a group of highly qualified and dedicated professionals. This includes a child and adolescent psychiatrist, an adult clinical psychologist, a child and adolescent clinical psychologist and a neuropsychologist. All of them are English speaking professionals.

My wide vision, training and experience allow me to look into each particular case individually in order to be able to provide a deep and proper assessment to the patient, with whom I will openly discuss the most suitable comprehensive therapeutic approach before starting therapy.

Feel free to call us or arrange a consultation with us. We will be pleased to help you.
