About me and my therapy practice

I am a psychotherapist/counsellor, as well as a counselling psychologist in training, with many years of experience in the NHS, universities and schools, cancer and mental health charities, youth homelessness and in refugee support.

I find that many of us underestimate the effect that living can have on us. Our upbringings, environment, the pressures of society – these things can all accumulate and make it difficult for us to understand who we are, or be at peace with how we feel. I believe that therapy allows you to take a more active role in understanding and experiencing your emotions, helping you to live life to its fullest.

My therapy is underpinned by the belief that no-one is fundamentally broken. We may all face struggles – some of us profound ones – but we all also have the potential find our way back to a better way of being, and a better relationship with ourselves.

Areas of specialty and special interest:

· Depression, and how this can be a clue to other areas of need.

· Existential concerns, particularly concerning meaning and purpose.

· Interpersonal difficulties, and our patterns in relationships.

· Trauma, and its complex effects on people’s lives.

I am dedicated to practicing in a non-judgmental and intersectional manner, regardless of ethnicity, culture, disability, gender, or sexuality and sexual expression.

I am a native Swedish speaker and can thus work with clients in Swedish/Norwegian/Danish. I’m experienced in working with expat clients and issues concerning cultural differences.
