I have always been interested in what makes people tick. An observer by nature I was that shy kid who watched others do life, hoping I would pick up a tip or two.
Although I’m a native Swede, I spent my 20s in California which influenced me hugely. I learned all about positive affirmations and meditation which are tools I still use today.
After moving to London and having had my children, I left a busy marketing career at a tech company and became a health blogger by chance when I was experiencing a bout of recurrent illness. I set up a green juice delivery business and shared what I had learned with the world.
My juice clients, although loving their green juices, were surprisingly resistant to changing toxic and sugary habits despite the obvious benefits such a change would make to their health, immunity and weight. There seemed to be two minds at play and one was always winning. It led me to investigate what happens in our brain when we want to change habits but feel we can’t – this led me to hypnotherapy.
I felt that the focus on solutions, rather than problems, provided the answers to the questions I had been pondering and today I am so happy I took the plunge to retrain with the Clifton Practice, where I gained my Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD), and later with the Clinical Hypnotherapy School where I received my Diploma in Medical Hypnotherapy.
In my sessions there is no judgement and everyone is welcome. I feel a tremendous amount of empathy for all my clients who come and see me and I provide a safe and compassionate space for everyone’s unique story whether that is face to face or online via Zoom. It takes courage and bravery to ask for help, something I understand and respect.
I am fully insured and have an enhanced DBS certificate which means I work with adults and children alike. I belong to the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH), Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) which means that I adhere to their strict code of conduct and regulations, have regular supervision and continuous professional development.
