Connection

TO SELF | TO ONE ANOTHER | TO NATURE

I respect and nurture the diversity of humanity and nature.

I work both outdoors and indoors and remotely. I am based in Kuopio and I work both in Finnish and in English.

Welcome to strengthen the connection!

Psychotherapy

 

Psychotherapy is goal-oriented cooperative method aimed at helping the client to live according to the values of their life. The aim of therapy is to understand the customer’s experience, life history, emotions, practices and their connection to symptoms. The goal is always to develop one’s self-reflection capabilities. The work involves getting to know one’s own feelings and needs and practicing behavioral patterns.

In psychotherapy, I apply methods of cognitive psychotherapy and bodily oriented psychoterapy. Working methods are selected according to the customer’s needs. 

I am a legalised psychotherapist (Valvira) and a service provider of Kela. 

My psychotherapy appointment is currently fully booked.

Adventure therapy

 

In adventure therapy, I combine various methods of adventure education and cognitive psychotherapy. Adventure therapy is group-based and intense: the group spends part of the therapy in the wilderness. Adventure therapy is holistic and deeply experiental. 

“I believe this was a life-changing experience.  It was empowering to share your own difficult things with others in an accepting atmosphere. I got to experience social situations in a group where it was safe and I wasn’t scared. Maybe reminiscing on this could make things easier in the future. I also had the experience that my fears are not exceptional, but others also have them. I’m not alone with it anymore.”

Professional supervision

Professional supervision aims to strengthen reflectivity. Its central objective is a conscious way of working. Professional supervision can be case-based work guidance or focus on, for example, practicing the method, coping with work or other relevant, topical themes. I like to do practical exercises. In professional guidance, I apply methods of cognitive psychotherapy and bodily oriented psychotherapy, as well as drama pedagogy.

Professional supervision can be individual or group-formatted. I am happy to work on the use of psychotherapy methods in education and social services.
