I’m Here To Support You.
I’m a Cardiology nurse from Sweden with 30 years experience of working with people. Apart from nursing in Sweden and Norway, I also worked as a manager, project leader and educator in the province of Sweden I used to live. After many years of working with people who suffered from different physical health issues, I got more and more interested in supporting people in their own healing journey, focusing on the wholeness of our being when we also include our mental and spiritual health.
Starting with myself I began a transformative journey doing an 18 months training in Sweden called “Training for life”. It was a self-explorative training which gave me several tools and new insights about myself.
My main interest and focus are in personal growth. I’ve discovered that different traumas might stand in the way for people to live their life fully, and unreleased tensions and stress can lead to larger mental and physical health concerns.
My Approach & Philosophy
As a Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner (SE™Practitioner) I have learnt to trust the bodys capacity to self regulate. By increased body awareness and the exploration of the language of the nervous system, the body can release stored tensions and recover from stress and trauma. Between the time I’ve started and completed the training to become a SE™Practitioner my clientele has slightly shifted. Today most people who contact me have heard about SE™ and are curious about working in a more somatic way. As an example, I sometimes get referrals from body workers like osteopaths or acupuncturists, who have noticed that their clients have difficulties when being touched. They might brace, get numb and find it very hard to receive the treatment. By using the tool of SE™ the client gets supported in renegotiating the traumatic event and can move towards bigger self-regulation and therefore grow his/her capacity.

Using Transforming Touch® or Transforming Intentional Touch® is another profound way to work with developmental trauma. For more info follow this link.
Some issues and traumas might not even belong to you….it might have started generations ago, or somewhere else in your family system when some things are not in balance.

A few years back I moved to Canada and it’s also here I’ve done some of my trainings. I first started my private practice in Montreal and a couple of years later, when we moved to the Eastern Townships, I also opened my second practice in North Hatley.
From the spring of 2020 I’m now full time in North Hatley and I’m looking forward seeing clients in my practice again, after months of regulations due to the pandemic Covid-19.
However, most of my clients (and several new ones) have continued with their sessions via Zoom or Skype and it’s been working more than well. For more info about Tele-Health follow this link.
