I am a qualified counsellor with an international background. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
How I work
I believe that every person has the resources to find their own answers, and I work in a way that aims to provide you, the client, the space to find those answers. I hope to support you in exploring your feelings about things such as:
Loss or bereavement
Life changes (e.g. a new job or relocation)
This list is not exhaustive, and I will do my best to help you explore anything you wish to talk about in our sessions. I aim to establish a safe, trusting, and supportive space in the counselling room, to make you feel as comfortable as possible in speaking about things that might be hard. Please see the BACP's Our Commitment to Clients for more information on the values and ethics that underpin my work with clients.
If we do end up meeting regularly, I will provide a contract for us both to sign, which outlines how we will work together. Click here to read the contract I currently use with clients.
Prior to setting up in private practice, I worked at a GP surgery as part of my counselling training, and I also work as a volunteer counsellor for MIND CPSL.
I am originally from Sweden, and spent my childhood and early adulthood living in several European countries, before settling in Cambridge over 10 years ago.
As well as my counselling qualifications, I also hold a degree in English and German from Warwick University, and an MPhil from the University of Cambridge. I speak Swedish and English and have a good understanding of German.
MY COUNSELLING QUALIFICATIONS
I hold a Level 4 Diploma in Counselling Skills, and have completed additional courses on topics such as anxiety and depression,
eating disorders, and self harm and suicide.
