In English

I am a Finnish psychotherapist. I work as a private therapist for adults and youth with different challenges or special needs. My office is located in Tampere, approximately 200 kilometres north of Helsinki. My therapeutic method is solution-focused psychotherapy. In Finland, clients with mental issues or disabilities can receive psychotherapy paid by the national healthcare.

I have been working in my own practice since the 2012.  Previously,  I worked in non-governmental organisations with people with special needs.
