Malin Rigneus English speaking stress and anxiety counsellor for expats in Oslo out in nature


I'm Malin, born and bred in Sweden now based in Oslo, Norway. The last two decades I've lived in England and Hong Kong.  

I'm a Master in Counselling degree holder, a psychology undergraduate with seven years of clinical experience providing therapy to professionals. I also worked for seven years within the HR field in various international corporations.

I witnessed how intense job pressures and relocation can negatively impact people. In fact, I was close to burnout myself on more than one occasion. These experiences made me passionate to assist improving individuals mental health.

At Leva Counselling the aim is to explore and overcome life issues, in a non-judgmental and confidential setting. Regaining balance in your mind, can potentially make you feel more confident, content and in control of your life.​

My Approach

Negative stress can develop due to many different reasons. The goal is to identify your specific triggers and provide you with hands on techniques,  to feel more on top of things. Together we might explore  what's really important to you, to possibly bring more meaning into your life.

I'm trained in quite practical therapy approaches; Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT). We will touch on the past, but the focus is more on supporting change in the here and now.
