About the Author



This virtual space is occupied by myself, Andreia Santo. I’m a clinical psychologist who desires to contribute to a more integrative way of looking at our human existence and current emotional states.

I’m very grateful for the diverse life and professional experience I’ve accumulated so far. I was born and lived until 24 years of age in the tranquil Algarve in Portugal, and after this (2010), I moved to the beautiful United Kingdom. Today I live in East London, Hackney.

I’ve worked as a clinical psychologist and family and systemic practitioner in different sectors, including social care, NHS and alternative education. Currently, I’m working in a child and family service in London, and also privately.

I love nature, travel, art, music and food.

I decided to write this blog in English instead of Portuguese, so its content could reach more people.

Thank you for visiting my blog, I hope you find it insightful.

Feel free to ask questions on the comments box.
