Centro La Raíz
@Centro La Raíz we take a holistic approach towards health.
We combine our expertise as a psychologist (Leonel Revilla) and as a nutritionist (Greet Sente) to offer you the most complete, personalized and integrated path towards a healthy lifestyle.
@Centro La Raíz we let you reconnect to your own unique inner healing system.
You will learn how to transform limiting beliefs (which you may have accumulated over the years).
We teach you techniques that enable you to act in a new and unconditioned way, transforming trauma into power.
We teach you wonderful techniques in order to reduce your stress levels drastically and we help you dismantle any protection and suppression mechanisms that are no longer serving you.
You will increase the power of your intuition and you will learn to deal responsibly with your own wellbeing.
You will learn which foods to avoid and which ones to integrate into your diet in order to optimize your metabolism.
You will also learn how to integrate physical exercise into your daily routine in a fun and easy way.
All of this together, will eventually translate into a continuous, vibrant and balanced inner & outer flow which will
enable you to truly thrive in life instead of survive!
You will find joy, passion and enthousiasm in your everyday life and you will transform into
the most radiant and healthy version of yourself!
We offer individual (online) sessions in the form of a transformational journey, as well as separate sessions
when the question or need is more specific.
We also organize webinars on the topics we are passionate about.
In the future we will also offer "Holistic Retreats" -LIVE retreats of approx. 10 days- where you will enjoy daily psychological support within a framework of healthy meals, yoga, meditation, supplementation, workshops on inner healing and immunity-enhancing nutrition, "nature baths", reiki sessions and much more.
A retreat is of course an accelerated program, both on an inner as on a physical level; this way you get a solid foundation (or as we say in Spanish; "RAIZ") so that you can easily continue to grow at home afterwards!
A short presentation of who we are...
Leonel is a transpersonal psychologist, specialized in trauma and abuse.
Besides his practice as a psycholigist, he also teaches psychology in "La Universidad Continental" & "La UNSA" in Arequipa, Peru.
Two decades ago Leonel founded the NGO "Intiwawa", an organization that improves the wellbeing of local children by providing them with education, meals and overall guidance.
In his first years as a psychologist he worked in the general hospital of Arequipa, mainly treating mental disorders and addictions.
Afterwards he specialised in childrens' psychology, more specifically in autism disorder and AD(H)D.
Because of his many years of experience as a therapist, he found that speaking was not always the adequate tool in healing trauma. Dance therapy (Biodanza) as well as creative therapy allowed him to guide people to healing in a safe, creative and entertaining way.
Leonel is passionate about mixing old wisdom with his academic background. An autodidact in "la cosmovision andina", Leonel tries to integrate the ancient wisdom of his ancestors in his daily practice. Integrating and transforming are key in this process.
With children, parents are always being envolved and they often personally take part in the healing trajectory.
Leonel will always look for a natural way of treating his patients, whether it be in creative ways (with movement or dance therapy, creative therapy,...) or a systemic way (looking at the environment or the external system).
Consultations are given in Spanish or French.

For people who are ready to take back their inner power, undo themselves of what no longer serves them and step into a new experience, with enthusiasm and excitement for all of life's blessings.
For open minded people who are ready to challenge their beliefs, their bounderies and explore
what's OUT of their comfort zone in order to grow their inner world and amplify their mental and emotional abilities.
You will be given clear guidelines regarding nutrition, meditation and excercises.
The trajectory includes also videos, guided meditations, audios (visualisations), personalised recipes and according shopping lists.
Every trajectory also consists of a "FIT plan" (physical activity on your level).
In some cases supplements, probiotics or herbal tinctures will be prescribed.
I provide 2 sessions a month, during 6 subsequent months. This is the time necessary in order to permanently
integrate these new lifestyle changes.
From then on I recommend a recap session every few months in order to refresh the integrated knowledge
and talk about the progress made or any new challenges.

"The understanding of my behavioural patterns and the acknowledging of my own power, which was the beginning of this transformational program, truly opened my eyes and made me very enthusiastic to transform my old belief system. The mental exercises are still part of my daily routine and influence my mood in wonderful ways. I feel liberated from my past and I am now able to enjoy every present moment to the fullest. The personalised diet is easy to stick to and provides me with loads of energy."
Jaqueline Lugo Fernandez
"I would have loved to have had these tools a lot sooner in life! I now live by the daily rituals that were installed in my morning routine and it has changed everything. Thanks to these practices I take this light- and brightness into my daily activities and into all my encounters... My way of looking at life has deeply changed for the better and my closest relationships have become so much more fulfilling. I'm deeply grateful to have been able to participate in this trajectory and would recommend it to anyone who wants to accomplish their goals but need guidance in doing so."
Maria Leon Castillo
"I've come to understand the underlying patterns that previously ran my life. Doing the affirmations and the breathing exercises really changed everything! I am no longer ruled by worries and negative patterns but empowered to make conscious (and new) decisions."
"People always ask me what I do to look so young and radiant and I'm sure the key was in this transformational trajectory. The nutritional advice but even moreso the meditations and mental exercises made me so much more resilient, more empowered. I now wake up gratefully every single day and people comment on how radiant and happy I look. Whenever worries or anxiety knock on the door, I have now all the tools I need to just observe and let go."
Linda Garcia Cruz
"I'm just so happy with how I look! I lost 10 kilos and feel like a whole new person inside and out.
I'm so much more relying on my own intuition, which has made me so much more confident.
Really grateful to have found this transformative trajectory, it has literally done what it promised; transformed my whole life for the better.
Thank you so much!"
