About me

IMG_1851

Background

I am originally from Sweden, where I grew up and studied social sciences and languages. I spent several years travelling the world, studying different approaches to mindfulness, counselling and self development.

Since settling in Edinburgh, in 2006 I have worked with people in different settings, using my unique approach of counselling, coaching and mindfulness.

Since having my two young children I have discovered the importance of wellness and self care. I am committed to a holistic approach to health and wellbeing, for myself as well as my clients.

Mental health

I am a fully qualified counsellor with over 10 years experience of working within mental health and social care, teaching mindfulness and helping people achieve their individual outcomes. I am fully trained in mental health first aid and suicice intervention as well as group facilitation.

I am experienced in working with people from all walks of life, including those with complex diagnosis or affected by issues such as social deprivation, addiction, trauma and abuse.

Mindfulness and personal growth

As a mindfulness teacher and coach I incorporate these techniques into my work to help people connect more deeply to themselves, overcome their circumstances and achieve their goals. I have a strong commitment to personal development and seeing people progress. My aim is to facilitate clients to be the best that they can be in all areas of their lives.

Interfaith

Although not religious, I have studied the world’s faith traditions as well as modern spirituality and philosophy and have an understanding of their principles and practices. In 2013 I was ordained by the Interfaith Semninary, authorising me to solemnise legal marriages, same sex marriages and civil partnerships in Scotland.

In an increasingly secular society I find that many people are looking for a flexible approach to celebrate the special occasions in their lives, such as weddings, baby namings and funerals. It gives me such joy to be able to hold ceremonies that are creative, heartfelt and personal – with or without religious elements.
