There are many reasons why people seek therapy. Some come to therapy after facing a crisis or emotional challenges that feel overwhelming and difficult to manage or isolating to face alone. Some want to understand themselves and their relationships better, while others have a sense of being ‘stuck’ in repetitive patterns or may experience feelings of self-criticism, and feelings of unfulfillment or general ‘unhappiness’.

Most of us will experience difficulties at some stage in our lives and how we respond to these will differ. Psychotherapy can help you gain a deeper awareness and understanding of yourself and your feelings, thoughts and behaviours, and help to put words to feelings which may be difficult to name.

About me and my approach

My approach is relational and founded in humanistic values. I draw from different theoretical strands in my work, and view therapy as a collaborative and shared journey. I hold a holistic viewpoint and accept that we human beings are multi-dimensional, with conscious and unconscious aspects as well as rational and irrational features.

Within a supportive, confidential and non-judgemental environment we work together to explore your experiences and make sense of them. 

I work with a range of issues. Common among those include relationships, attachment, bereavement, developmental trauma, self-confidence, work challenges, addiction, anxiety, depression, physical illness–health and stress. I have a special interest in relationship dynamics and how early relationships may shape our experiences later in life; as well as loss and grief, aspects of midlife and ageing, and of feeling stuck in repetitive patterns.

I work from the Practice Rooms in Clifton, Cotham and Westbury-on -Trym in Bristol and offer both in person and online sessions.

I am a qualified UKCP accredited humanistic and integrative psychotherapist and I trained with Bath Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy/Middlesex University.  My professional background is in nursing (chronic and life-threatening conditions) and health psychology.  I have had a private practice since 2016 and I am in regular supervision to support me in my work, and am fully committed to my professional development. I am originally from Sweden and have lived in the UK for more than two decades.
