Walk and talk, outdoors

If indoors isn’t your thing, I also offer outdoor or nature counselling (also known as walk and talk), where we sit or walk in a local nature spot.

I’m Nina

I am a native English-speaking therapist offering sessions face-to-face in north west Stockholm, and remotely with clients in other parts of Sweden, Europe and the UK.

I am a UK-accredited Gestalt therapist with over 25 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, dyslexia, autism), or confusion around gender, sexuality or relationships.

The story of the Washing Machine that Peed. Thoughts around what might make a `lucky` versus an `unlucky` person, or how to practice gratitude and the consequences of doing so.

I would like to highlight that our cleaner is thoroughly lovely, and very good at her job. I do not blame her at all for this incident. I wholly recognise that a silly drain pipe that has to be weighed down with a broom and a hammer, that cannot be knocked even a centimetre, to stop it leaking all over the floor, is a bad idea on our part - one of many little jobs we inherited with the house that we`ve not yet got round to.

The silver lining of this, is that my husband has now raised this job to the top of his priority list this weekend, to stop it happening again - this is the third time this has happened, and the first and biggest time was our fault, and resulted in a very mouldy laundry room, so it`s about time!

In this video I look at judgements, stereotypes and myths around socialising and social behaviour, and what is considered healthy or `normal` versus some other very different, yet still healthy and fulfilling, ways of socialising.

I also touch upon changes in socialising behaviour that may occur when someone is feeling burned out or overwhelmed, and how these should not necessarily be seen as signs of someone spiralling, but as coping strategies that some people use to prevent spiralling. Within this, I talk about ways you can support someone with their socialising behaviour or social life, when they are struggling.
