Registered Psychologist, PhD
Throughout my career I have focused on three key areas of psychology: private practice,
research and teaching. Having worked with such different disciplines has given me a broad
knowledge base as well as a deeper understanding of people (individuals, groups and our
role in society).
I started conducting research at Uppsala University directly after graduation (reg.
Psychologist) and immediately opened my own private practice. I later received my PhD in
Psychology from Stockholm University.
I initially started working with psychodynamic therapy and have also since then included
areas such as emotion, cognition , social psychology and interpersonal relationships in my
therapeutic work. I am acutely aware that people are a part of their social environment,
which influences many parts of their lives, including relationships, feelings, attitudes and
In recent years I have qualified in affect - focused therapy and practice a softer form of ISTDP
(Intensive Short - Term Dynamic Therapy). The advantage of affect - focused therapy is that it
recognises emotions and bodily responses in a different way to standard PDT therapy and
reinforces processes of change.
