Remote therapy and consultancy from the convenience of your home or office, plus face to face or outdoor options

I work with issues relating to identity or belonging, including mixed culture, suspected or diagnosed neurodivergence, or GSRD

I will give you a safe and confidential space, free of judgement, to explore whatever is difficult in your life, and to help you identify what you might want to change

Services available

I have full training and extensive experience in video, audio, and SMS therapy, as well as through email for those who may prefer no interruptions, or who struggle with regular time commitments.

In-person therapy, indoors and outdoors

I offer sessions from a cosy confidential therapy cabin, or outdoor counselling (also known as walk and talk), where we sit or walk in a local nature spot.

Non-walking babies are welcome to attend your session with you.

I offer consultancy to teachers, carers and parents around how to support young neurodivergent people at home or in the school environment (e.g. ADHD, PDA, autism).

This is for those that feel they are ‘out of ideas’, or that ‘traditional’ (aka neurotypical) parenting or teaching strategies aren’t working.

I’m Nina

I am a native English-speaking therapist offering in-person sessions in north west Stockholm, and remote work for all clients, whether in Sweden or internationally.

I am a UK-accredited Gestalt therapist with 30 years’ experience in the fields of mental health and psychology, and as a therapist since 2010. I work creatively, using whatever helps you to understand yourself or your situation better. 

I specialise in helping people who struggle to fit in, or don’t know where they belong, especially where issues arise through living a mixed culture life, suspected or diagnosed neurodivergence (e.g. ADHD, PDA, dyslexia, autism), the twin relationship, or confusion around gender, sexuality or relationships.

I share a lot of tips and strategies about what has helped us, or from books and research I`ve read, but I also share personal stories - of challenges, when I`ve found things very tough, and how I cope with this or process it; and of positive things - how I notice the shifts and small changes, when weights or demands lift.

It is so important for us to be aware of this, to be mindful and take a step back to notice how we cope, how we react, how we feel, and to remind ourselves that everything is transient, everything changes.

As many of you may know, I specialise in issues around identity - usually neurodivergence, mixed culture, and gender, sexual and relationship diversity.
