Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) Spain

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) Spain. We are Martin and Marion Shirran, and we've been treating clients at our base in Spain for over twenty years. In addition, we continue to provide home treatment visits on a surprisingly global basis. You can view a list of the more common problems we have treated on the Problems drop down above. Striving to always Exceed Clients' Expectations is the mantra we have worked with from day one. That philosophy, along with the daily commitment to total client satisfaction, we believe to be the reason for our remarkable international reputation. We believe that every client ultimately has a choice in whom to place their trust and with whom they wish to work. So, the fact that they choose to work with us has resulted in each one being treated as an individual, with respect and total confidentiality.

University Presentations

We re-located to Spain's Costa del Sol in 2002.The plan was to offer cognitive therapy and assistance to the English speaking residents, and expats living on the coast. In all honesty, nothing could have prepared us for the amazing journey that lay ahead of us. The success stories of clients who we had treated, along with details of our unique approach were quickly covered on television and in print media on both sides of the Atlantic. Following the publicity, we were invited by Professor Philip Zimbardo (Stanford University, San Fransisco) to speak about our work and unique approaches at several European University Psychology conferences in Europe. This resulted in us welcoming international clients who had flown to Spain exclusively to be treated at the clinic on a weekly basis. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) Spain.

Online Sessions

As the interest in our work grew globally, it quickly became necessary to develop an online version of our therapy that delivered solutions at the same high standards. The extensive online packages we provided now go back many years. However, after two years of Covid lockdowns, the remote way of working became almost the norm. To meet the enhanced demand, we invested in the production of a range upgraded, cutting edge Skype and Zoom focused treatments. More recently, we developed the  'Virtual Residential, Rehab Treatment' which is the treatment of choice for many clients around the world seeking Residential Level Treatment, at achievable costs. You can read more about the unusual approach on the Virtual Rehab page,.

Global Media Interest

Following the media interest in our work, we signed an international, multi-title, publishing contract with Hay House, the world's leading Mind Body Publishers. The first two books were published internationally. We have also appeared on TV programmes in both the United States and the UK. It was in 2008 that we started the initial research into our groundbreaking and now internationally acclaimed Gastric Mind Band® permanent weight-loss therapy, which we still provide here in Spain. In 2022 we launched our fully Downloadable My Weigh Less Permanent Weight-Loss Treatment programme.  You can read more on our dedicated website
