Behind The Scenes

Why Collaborate?

For over 25 years, Adriana Lobato has been a resource in different communities around the world teaching mindfulness and meditation to the elderly and children at no cost. She has a strong commitment towards educating and helping others who are unable to afford therapy. This is her motivation behind all her TV appearances since 2003, when she was aired in a mini documentary showing her conducting mindfulness in preschool children on the Spanish TV show “Despierta América.”


Dr. Phil acknowledges that his shows are simply a beginning. "We do not labor under the false impression that we are doing an eight-minute cure," he said. My shows could "never be a meaningful substitute for therapy." After the shows, his staff arranges therapy for guests who want further help back in their communities. Adriana Lobato Psychology Center has signed a contract with his show and is now actively providing pro-bono sessions to his clients.

“I want to help as many people as possible, and the television has allowed me the opportunity to reach more households,” says Adriana Lobato.
