About Me

I am originally from Norway, but lived in England for nine years. I worked as a therapist in London, specialising in issues such as stress, crisis, trauma, anxiety, depression, motivation, anger management, addiction, bereavement, cultural issues, relationship problems, existential questions, and more.

I am flexible in my work, applying a wide range of therapy forms such as solution focused treatments like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness Techniques, as well as more complex in-depth healing using Dream Analysis, Creative Imagination, Psychoanalysis and Psychosynthesis.

My Educational Background

I hold a BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology from University of East London, an MA in Psychoanalytic Studies from Goldsmiths University of London, and two years of the Diploma Course in Transpersonal and Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE) in London. I completed my Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy at The Norwegian Institute of Psychosynthesis (NIP) in Oslo, Norway. I have also been rewarded with The Certificate of Psychotherapy by The European Association for Psychotherapy (EAP).

Professional Experience

I have several years of experience working in the field, both face-to-face work and telephone counselling. I used to be a Helpline Volunteer at Saneline -a crisis phone for people affected by mental health issues, often as serious as suicide. I also worked as a face-to-face Bereavement Counsellor through Cruse Bereavement Care, in addition to engaging with a number of mental health organisations helping people suffering from schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder, obsessional compulsive disorder, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, and many other conditions. I also engaged as a therapist at the Help Counselling Centre in Notting Hill, as well as seeing private clients in North London. I was also setting up and running therapy groups at Mind in Barnet. After moving back to Norway, I have been involved in Educational and Developmental Psychology, working with children and families in schools and through the Child Protection Services. I have also been seeing private clients and arranged workshops and therapy groups in Oslo and around.
