My Story

Born and raised to adult life in Sweden, I am a global citizen and have also lived, worked and played in the UK, India and now, in Switzerland. I speak fluent English, Swedish and French.

In my 30+ year career specialising in making the intangible tangible for a number of products and services, I feel I’ve seen every possible dynamic in the workplace. Early on I managed teams and quickly understood that being mentor and coach was a crucial part of the necessary skill set. At the heart of it, I could see that everything would be smoother, more efficient and more fun if we learned how to communicate more effectively.

I complemented my on-the-ground experience by becoming a certified coach and an experienced Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioner. NLP is a method of influencing brain behaviour and thought processes through the use of language and communication patterns. It enables changes to take place in the way the brain responds to both new input and past memories so that new and better thoughts and behaviours can manifest; it’s like deleting and replacing old files on a computer. With NLP I invite clients to delve into their own limiting life patterns and offer tools that can be used as pathways to create immediate transformation.

I am high-energy, pragmatic, empathetic and inspirational. I work with executives, entrepreneurs, creatives, and anyone who wants to expand their self-awareness, self- perception and improve their ability to communicate authentically. I am especially effective in creating a safe space for my clients to unleash their inner positive power — in record time.
