Sue Cowan, MA - Psychologist and Life Coach

I come to coaching from a therapeutic background, having studied psychology then trained and practised as a Clinical Psychologist in the mental health sector of the NHS in UK for many years. Over the past few years I have completed full and comprehensive coaching training; I am now a certified coach with the International Coaching Federation.

I work in partnership with individuals who are struggling to make changes in their personal or professional lives. I help my clients find clarity, focus, confidence and direction: to access resources they never knew they had, overcome the obstacles holding them back, and move forward with fresh perspectives to live the fulfilled and balanced life they are seeking. My clients include  those seeking greater personal satisfaction and fulfilment, women in transition, and weary workers yearning for improved work-life balance.

Languages: English and German

Leila C-M Lönnroth, BBSc - Stress and Anger Management Counsellor

I am a certified Stress and Anger Management Counsellor and have a Behavioural Science degree with focus on cross-cultural relations and migration. I am well acquainted with the dynamics of relocation and how international work environments can affect individuals and family dynamics. I work with anger and stress management as well as parenting support.

Anger and stress management is useful when:
·         You are in conflict, for example at work, with your partner, your child or your parent.
·         You have problems expressing your needs and feelings in an assertive and constructive way.
·         When you suffer the consequences of either angry outbursts or bottled-up frustrations.

Learn how to express your needs and feelings in an assertive and healthy way. Empower yourself by setting boundaries. Increase confidence and self esteem.

Languages: English and Swedish.

David C. Schiesher, MSW - Psychotherapist

I have an eclectic and holistic psychotherapy practice. I use a number of approaches depending on the issues and personal characteristics of the client. I primarily use a person-centered, cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic approach within the very important context of a therapeutic relationship. I utilize energy psychology methods such as the Release Technique and Emotional Freedom Technique. I use hypnosis, guided imagery and mindfulness when indicated by the person and situation.

As with most Clinical Social Workers, I have a varied and rich work history since 1980, having worked with unaccompanied refugee children and foster parents; special education middle school children, teachers and parents; developmentally disabled adults in a group home setting and adolescents in a psychiatric hospital. My international work experience took me to Albania, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Jordan and three countries in Africa.

I work with adults, young people between the ages of 10 to 17, parents and couples. I enjoy facilitating therapy and support groups with adults, youth and adolescents.

Annika Sundell - Certified Rolfer

I practice Rolfing, which has the ability to rebalance a person's alignment through deep tissue manipulation, movement and perception work. Rolfing can release tensions, alleviate pain as well as restore flexibility, revitalize your energy and leave you feeling more comfortable in your body. Rolfing is a holistic technique that impacts the whole person, physically, emotionally, and energetically. Rolfing is recognized by most complementary insurances.

Eriko Gavinio - Psychological Counsellor

I am a psychological counsellor, providing child and adult counselling, with background experience as a certified clinical psychologist in Japan.

With my clinical research experience in the field of developmental disorder (ASD) and the training in psychodynamic psychotherapy, I feel passionate about supporting children holistically both in their cognitive and relational growth.

In adult counselling, I address issues of child-rearing, cultural adjustment, and other stress-related difficulties. I apply psychodynamic approach in my practice. This means I value the importance of our inner voices, the unconscious, in order to fully understand the challenges we face and to find our own ways of living them.

I also enjoy working with teachers and professionals who provide support to children. I offer consultations to create safe space and time to think freely together to attain richer understanding of the child who is in the need of our support.

Languages: English, Japanese, French (for young children)
