Octavio León

Schoen Clinic Newbridge Birmingham

Family Therapist - Eating Disorders (Children & Young People)


Octavio is a Family Therapist at Schoen Clinic Newbridge caring for our children, teens and young people undergoing treatment for eating disorders.

    For the last 15 years, Octavio has been working with young people and adults who have been affected by eating disorders, trauma, abuse and many other mental health issues.

    Octavio offers family therapy with a systemic and narrative approach. He believes that individual difficulties do not develop in isolation but within a context, a pattern of relationships and woven stories; likewise, healing and recovery should also happen within a network of support as the best way forward.

    Having lived, trained and worked in different countries such as Venezuela, Spain and the UK, Octavio has a special interest for cultural elements affecting our identities, relationships and narratives around mental health.
