With its roots on the principles of Positive Psychology and Psychoeducation, L’Officine des Petits Bonheurs is a counselling service focused on reflexion, personal development and exchanging experiences.
At the heart of the project is the active research on the well-being of a child, an individual or a family throughout the support of their psychological, emotional and interpersonal difficulties in all their different expressions.
In order to target and adapt to any particular personal situation, the scientific precisions of the interventions bring an additional guarantee of satisfaction.
My name is Andreia Santos, clinical psychologist and psychotherapist at heart and by education.
Passionate about my work, I fundamentally like people of every age and background.
It is a privilege to establish with someone an unique relationship allowing that person to explore their resources and their potential through a reassuring and secure connection. It is also an immense responsibility that I embrace with full awareness, aiming to be a partner in the process of personal change.
I’ve been working since 2011 with children, teenagers, adults, parents and families in order to identify wounds, obstacles and conflicts that make them suffer. I accompany them through their process of personal discovery, in which each pain is an opportunity to learn and to grow.
Adapting to each and every person, child or adult, I propose to accompany them through their personal progress, building alongside them the tools to undertake a new form of confidence and restore enjoyment in life.
I see myself as an integrative therapist, looking to coherently combine techniques from different theories and models, with the purpose of allowing you to be the driving force of your own achievements.
With the utmost respect towards the commitment, the time and the investment each person applies to their work with a health professional like me, I continuously endeavour to improve my professional skills by attending conferences, supervision sessions and continuing education, in order to meet your requests efficiently and appropriately.
L’Officine des Petits Bonheurs was born out of the longing to give everyone access to the latest scientific researches on happiness.
Nowadays Psychology knows that certain exercises can drastically change the perception we have of our own reality. With the adequate support, this practice leads to tangible results as well as a personal deep transformation in which the subject realises he has the active role of his own renewal.
Happiness is a concept we can mould, work on, develop and eventually grow. L’OPB helps you to find the missing pieces and building techniques by giving you the keys that better adapt to your personal situation.
