I am a psychiatrist and an EMDR – Europe accredited EMDR – therapist .
I am not a psychotherapist, which is a protected title, and therefore I don’t have Kela – qualification, which means that I can´t provide the rehabilitative psychotherapy of the Social Insurance Institution (Kela).
However, Kela provides reimbursement for part of my fee because I am a doctor.
I provide psychotherapy for adults in Finnish, Swedish and English from the framework of trauma – and EMDR – therapy.
I neither prescribe medications nor renew prescriptions nor write medical reports for Kela benefits or other benefits but focus solely on therapy.
The vision of my therapy work is a harmonious body-mind-spirit – wholeness.
Because we people are so different and we all, even we therapists, have a unique profile for both weak points (read: challenges) and strong sides, it is a good thing that there are many different kinds of therapists.
Most important is to find a therapist who believes that she/he can help, who is present, who receives you and meets you in a respectful and compassionate way, and who you believe you can collaborate with.
