I’m Nina

I am a native English-speaking therapist offering sessions face-to-face in central Stockholm and Järfälla, 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. 

In Sweden, therapy is offered via two means:

  • Via a psychologist or a psychotherapist working for the Swedish National Health and Welfare Authority (Socialstyrelsen). For professionals within the Socialstyrelsen, the methods used can be limited to certain approaches such as CBT, which may not be a good fit for all clients.
  • Privately via a samtalsterapeut or counsellor/therapist. I offer private therapy, as a samtalsterapeut – this is a professional form of help for those who are finding things difficult for whatever reason. It can help you to feel heard or seen, and to better understand what isn’t working very well in your life. It can also help you decide what and how you want to change.

Do you experience what I call `the clothing tizz`?

Do you wake up and find that you have nothing to wear? Nothing feels right! Maybe you struggle to know what to wear in the mornings, or you get stressed by having to make that choice?

Here are some thoughts about this and some tips around how to avoid this happening.

I`ve been shoving my hands in soil again, harvesting my produce, taking a moment to just be in connection with the earth, the ecosystem I am part of, that supports me and mine, and all of us, while we strive to keep it healthy and strong in the little ways that we can.

You can always find the sunshine, if you take the time to stop and look.

I`m trying to drop in some super short videos with mini tips for ADHDers and others who struggle with time management or overload of demands. The latest one was inspired by my seven year old talking about forgetteries as a way to manage difficult feelings or anxiety.

Turns out `forgetteries` is a real word! And I love it. It shall definitely be entering my regularly used vocabulary.

I`ve been pondering how to navigate critical differences between individuals in relationships and families, and I`m starting to make some videos on how to manage or support these conflicts.

As I`ve said before, conflict isn`t created - it already exists, and it needs addressing for us to find harmony in our lives.

This is the first of a series of videos I will create, and this one is about finding harmony between routine lovers and routine haters.

Today I challenge you to notice one thing you love about how your brain works OR some random thing that gives you great joy in life.

Love you and your brain. You - guaranteed - have some delightful qualities that not everyone - maybe not even you - has figured out how to appreciate.

None of us is perfect. Let`s be real and stop hiding behind our masks. This goes for us all.

If we don`t share these things with our children, at best, they have no blueprint for how to cope when they are struggling.

At worst, we teach our children to struggle and suffer, alone and in silence.
