Somatic Therapist

Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner (SEP)

Transforming Touch® Therapist
Facilitator in Family Constellations

What do I offer?

I’d like to support You to become more aware of Your inner strenghts and potential. Together we will look into what’s standing in Your way to experience life with greater joy. 

I’m fluent in Swedish and English and understands German fairly well.

 

“My main interest is 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.”

Helena Swanstrom

Individual Sessions

My focus is to support individuals in their own healing process and also become more aware of their inner strengths. By increased awareness and helpful tools you’ll be able to deal with matters that you’re now willing to look into.

Family Constellations

Some issues are benefited by looked into using a group of people (or figures) who get to represent one or some in your family system.

Tele Health/Zoom Sessions

If you of any reason can’t come for a personal session, online sessions via Zoom or Skype works just as well. During the Covid-19 pandemic my experience have grown thanks to the willingness of my clients to explore this way of working. What many clients experiences is that they feel safe being in their own home environment and that the quality of the session is just as beneficial.

Helena Swanstrom

As a Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner (SEP) 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.

I’d Love to Support You

Do you ever experience thoughts or feelings like…

“I never feel safe anywhere”
“I never seem to find my place”
“I think I push people away”
“Since my car accident I haven’t been able to drive again”
“I feel I need to take care of everyone and I’m tired”
“When I’m getting close to someone, I get scared and leave”
“Since the attack I’m constantly on guard”
“I always fear that I will lose everything”
“I would love to enjoy life more”

What my clients say:

“Helena is a lovely, warm, and caring therapist. The combination of family constellations work and somatic experiencing leads to great insight, has helped me be pay better attention to my body, and recognize the importance of existing relationships in my life. She is attentive to limits, but has challenged me in the places I needed in order to move forward. I am so glad to be working with her.”

Bailey

“My time with Helena was a gentle unfolding. She patiently guided me through some difficult emotions and bodily sensations and into places of ease and grace. I’ve been finding myself more relaxed and focussed since our sessions together. I highly recommend her.”

K.Brown

“I experienced really wonderful sessions with Helena over Zoom. Having done several in person sessions with her prior to working over Zoom, I found that she was able to create an equally safe and loving container in which I could feel her presence and receive the benefits of her skillful guidance and expertise during our transformational online sessions together.”

Kerri

“With such compassion, wisdom and gentleness, Helena guided me through a difficult transition in my life right after I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Somatic Experiencing proved to be the perfect support for me and my body, allowing me to sink into my deeper layers of stress, understand why my body was hurting, learning to listen to its messages, find acceptance and begin the journey back to myself.
I am a Yoga Therapist and Life Coach, and for a long time I felt I should be able to do this work myself, but I am so grateful that I found Helena and allowed myself the help. Somatic Experiencing with Helena have been life changing for me.
Thank you for being you, and of offering this work in the world.”

Trine Mikkelsen

“Tired of feeling exhausted, defeated, and broken after years of not getting help with several severe symptoms after a head injury 2015, I made the best decision in my life and seeked Helenas help for Somatic Experiencing. She has so much knowledge and shows interest in what I am going through and imparts her expertise with sensitivity toward solutions that are comfortable for me alone. Her solutions are custom-fit to my needs and not just technical language used by professionals. She offers help and lends her support in ways that challenge me and push me to get to the place where I can feel whole, complete and balanced. A place where I can be me.
She has helped in synchronizing my emotions with my body, which has helped me reduce my stress and has caused my symptoms to decrease.”
