Therapy with me

Psychotherapy is a invaluable tool for:
- improving well-being and mental health
- resolving or mitigating troublesome behaviors, beliefs, compulsions, thoughts or emotions
- improving relationships and social skills. 

In therapy, you will find a safe, non-judgmental environment where you will acquire tools that will help you to deal with your difficulties and improve your situation, step by step.
In our first sessions, I will help you to verbalize your concerns, describe your history and we will explore the possible causes of your difficulties together.
With my help as a skilled therapist, you will develop the insight, self-knowledge and awareness  you need to uncover and transform the unconscious patterns of thinking and feeling that are holding you back. You will develop new and constructive ways of thinking, about yourself and your situation. 
 
There are many reasons to seek counseling: 
    • Low self esteem or self worth 
    • Anxiety 
    • Panic attacks 
    • Depression 
    • Grief
    • Life crisis 
    • Relational problems 
    • Stress 
    • Personal development 
 
As an immigrant myself and working with immigrants, I have both personal and professional experience dealing with alienation, the need to belong and the various challenges involved in the acculturation process. 
That is maybe the reason why I am very sought after by clients from all over the world dealing with their acculturation process in danish society.

 

Because of my long experience of working for an emergency service for nordic travellers in difficulty

and psychological councelling center, I'm very used to dealing with people in crises both big and small.

About me

 

I am a Finnish psychotherapist living in Denmark since 1986. 
I have also lived in Sweden, Spain and Argentina. 
My South American husband and I have been together since 1992, we have a daughter

from his previous marriage and  3 children together.


I'm a very calm, open minded, robust and honest person, with a strong sense of humor which I have found very useful in my practice as a therapist.  

Since I was born in Finland and lived in Sweden, Spain, Argentina and now for many years in Denmark and always had a very diverse circle of friends, I have developed a special understanding of the processes and challenges that arise in the encounter between multiple cultures.

I know what to go through when you choose to settle in a new culture and understand how it can trigger many different emotions, which among other things affect your relationships with the people you are among.

For the same reason and because I offer therapy in Danish, Swedish, Finnish and English, I am highly sought

after by clients with an international background.

My clients come from all over the world such as Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Canada, Italy, Spain, England, France, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden etc.

Since I graduated from GIS-International I have regularly updated my skills in theory and practice,

continuously participating in postgraduate training, supervision and my own therapy.

I am currently following a 2 year international program

« A Phenomenological Approach to Psychopathology and Clinical Practice »

at the ‘Istituto di Psicopatologia Y Psicoterapia della Gestalt’ in Torino, Italy,

with fellow psychotherapists from 15 different countries
