Jessica Pimentel

Born in Cuba and raised amidst diverse cultural landscapes, I am a dedicated professional with a rich background in psychology and a passion for fostering positive change in individuals and families.

My journey began in Belfast, where I pursued my Masters in Psychology at Queen's University. During this time, I honed my research and coordination skills as a Research Assistant, contributing to various projects that deepened my understanding of psychological dynamics. Currently, as a Family Mediator and Psychologist at Naturaterapia in Palma, Spain, I orchestrate adventure therapy programs to enhance family communication and trust. With a background in supporting individuals with complex needs, I've also been a support worker, educator and family therapist.

My journey reflects a commitment to holistic well-being, combining psychological expertise with educational support. This diverse background, coupled with a personal love for nature, uniquely positions me to present my work on transformative adventure therapy experiences at an international conference, emphasizing the universal importance of open communication and resilience in families.

Expanding Adventure Therapy: Helping Relationships Thrive

This practical workshop aims to explore the transformative potential of adventure therapy in enhancing conflict resolution within families and couples. Titled "Expanding Adventure Therapy: Helping Relationships Thrive," our workshop uniquely utilizes the metaphor of a slackline to guide participants through the stages of a relationship.

The metaphorical journey mirrors the stages of a relationship: the initial stability, the inherent instability of the middle, and the eventual return to stability. Participants will engage in hands-on activities involving the slackline, symbolizing the challenges faced in relationships. The workshop emphasizes the crucial role of effective communication in navigating these stages and resolving conflicts during critical junctures.

Attendees will gain practical insights into using adventure therapy techniques to foster trust, improve communication, and promote resilience within relationships. By combining experiential learning with theoretical frameworks, this workshop offers a dynamic approach to understanding and addressing relationship dynamics.
