I offer counselling and guidance in Joensuu region. I am a trained, body-oriented work supervisor (työnohjaaja STOry) as well as a Certified TRE® Provider. I work comfortably in Finnish and English.

I have twenty years of experience as a researcher working on themes such as diversity, (anti-)racism and international migration. I have lived abroad and can relate to many experiences of finding one’s bearings in new surroundings. I respect everyone’s personal space, both physical and mental, and do not intentionally discriminate or make anyone feel less than.

If you are interested in work supervision, please contact me for further information.

TRE® is a physical self-help practice that releases muscular tension, calming down or activating, the nervous system. I am a Certified TRE Provider and with my guidance you can learn the series of exercises that activates a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating in a safely and comfortable manner. You may read more about TRE here.

I see clients in Joensuu (Penttilänkulma 4A), and online upon agreement. You are warmly welcome to contact me and find out more about the services.

The cost of private guidance in TRE for individuals and pairs is 72 euros/60 min.

For a beginner, I recommend a series of three to five sessions costing 210 euros (3 times) tai 345 euros (5 times). The prices include 24 % VAT. It is my experience that three sessions is often good for learning the basics of TRE, while five sessions allows the deepening of the practice and making it more individual. We can discuss and decide on the timing of sessions during the first meeting.

There are also TRE groups running on Wednesday (6 pm) and Thursday (5 pm) evenings and deep relaxation on Friday (5 pm). Please contact me for more information.

You can book me to guide a private group exercise that lasts 90 minutes. The price is 18 euros per participant (minimum 180 euros/session, negotiable if the group is small). If we need to book a place to accommodate a bigger group, the rent is added to the price. Also, outside of Joensuu, the travel costs are added.

TRE® is a safe and effective stress release technique for most people. Individuals who have physical or psychological conditions that require strict regulation, individuals with fragile psychological defences, a complex history of trauma or restricting physical or medical limitations are advised to consult their medical practitioner or a Certified TRE Provider before starting to practice TRE.
