Over the years, I have focused on three key areas of psychology: private practice, research, and education. Working with such different disciplines has given me a broad knowledge base and 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 started working with psychodynamic therapy and have added other psychology areas, such as cognition and emotions. A base on interpersonal relationships still follows. I am acutely aware that people are a part of their social environment, which influences many aspects of their lives, including relationships, feelings, attitudes, and actions. Later, I trained in affect-focused therapy ISTDP (Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Therapy).

I also work as a researcher and have an avid interest in psychology. As a therapist, educator, and blogger, I keep updated with clinical psychology (particularly about ISTDP), learning, emotions, and related areas. Previously I have lectured and planned courses and training in several areas of psychology: emotion, social psychology, the life span, cognition, personality, work and psychology, scientific method, the psychology of creativity, political psychology, etc
