If I had to find a word that has always followed me, giving meaning to my life, it would be Freedom. I have always found freedom important, freedom to express yourself and freedom to be your unique, true self.  

Having had times in my life where I had lost myself in trying to fit in the demands and expectations of my surroundings, I am now passionate about helping others to find their freedom with the help of RTT, just like I have. 

I am a Licensed RTT Therapist, Clinical Hypnotherapist and a Reiki Healer. I was born and raised in South Western part of Finland and as a child I was a very free spirit. I loved playing outside, running in the woods, swimming in the sea, climbing trees, playing in the snow, ice skating and trying every activity around, any new hobby that came about, you name it, I tried it. I also loved reading and already at quite young age, could stay up all night reading a book I couldn’t put down.

This curiosity for life and experiences has stayed with me all my life, accompanied by a thirst for freedom. I have always been passionate about helping other people. This calling lead on to me studying health care and then later teaching. However, both the formal health care and educational systems did not resonate with me and I always felt restricted. In my late 40’ies I discovered I had ADHD which, at first came as a bit of a shock. But, in hindsight, it explained so much of my life: all the struggles I had with things other people seem to simply get on with, the highs and lows and the ever-present feeling of being different, thinking there was something wrong with me. 

I now realise, I used to spend so much energy in trying to fit in, trying to cope and be like others – masking (which is so common for female ADHD sufferers). All my life I had been labelled lazy, messy, selfish and always too sensitive. I was a people loving introvert which is a challenge in itself, but common for sensitive people like me. But, most of all, it explained my low self-esteem and lack of confidence and the harsh critical narrative I had going on in my head about myself most of the time. 

Finding out I had ADHD and learning RTT have been turning points in my life. Through self-discovery with the help of RTT I have learned to love myself and become compassionate and caring towards my needs and desires, and most of all, I have learned to own my unique quirkiness, my special sensitivities which turned out to be my super power! As an empath who has always cared for people, I am now passionate about helping other women who suffer from similar issues I did, (with or without ADHD) to transform their lives. I want to give women back the self-confidence, self-worth and deep love for themselves, they were born with.
