Hi, my name is Andrea Sartor and I am an experienced Counselling Psychologist and a qualified Marriage and Family therapist both in England and in California. I am originally from California and trained to become a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist while I was living in the States. When I moved to London I transferred my Marriage and Family Therapist License, my credentials, and all of my experience to the Health and Care Professions Council and they registered me as a Counselling Psychologist.
I have over 15 years of study, evidence-based research, and clinical practice consulting clients of all ages with various needs and different backgrounds. I have been blessed with the opportunity of working as a therapist and a psychologist in two countries and spent the last three years living in Europe and working in London to build up my private practice.
I have lived in London for 3 1/2 years now and have spent the first two years working with inpatient and outpatient clients at The Priory hospital in North London and at the Priory Wellbeing Center on Fenchurch street in Central London.
I've spent the last year branching out on my own and building up a successful private practice in various office locations in Central London.
My practice was born from the desire to help people feel empowered, fulfilled, and joyful in their lives. I strive to help my clients find happiness through humor and positive thinking and I always meet them where they are and what they are working on. One of the most effective therapeutic models that I provide to my clients is Dialectic Behavioural Therapy.
DBT is a type of therapy that focuses on four vital areas of mental health. These areas include distress tolerance, emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and mindfulness. I also incorporate creative therapeutic interventions using art and music to help my clients explore and strengthen their authentic selves so that they can create a life worth living.
I specialize in treating adults and couples and I use an eclectic approach to assessment, diagnosis, and counselling. I have specialized training and experience in providing therapy from the following approaches: DBT, cognitive-behavioral (CBT), person-centered, gestalt, art, play, music, psychodynamic, narrative, ABA, emotionally focused, solution-focused, behavioral, attachment-based, and teaching mindfulness. I also have extensive experience in treating mood disorders, anxiety disorders, phobia, OCD, personality disorders, eating disorders, neurological disorders, learning disabilities, trauma-related issues, and other complex mental health disorders.
I am registered with numerous professional bodies, including the Health and Care Professional Council (HCPC, PYL 35436) and the Board of Behavioural Science of California (LMFT 103929). I went to school in Salt Lake City Utah and attended a private liberal arts college to earn my BSc degree in Psychology and then went to a private college to obtain my MSc degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. After college, I moved to San Francisco California, and trained to become a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.
