I'm Malin, born and bred in Sweden now living in my adopted home town Oslo, Norway. The last two decades I've been based in England, Australia and Hong Kong.  

While working in Human Resources 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 combined with my lifelong enthusiasm for psychology, made me passionate to assist improving individuals mental health.

At Leva Counselling you can explore and overcome life issues, in a non-judgmental and confidential setting. Leva (to live) refers to how regaining balance in your mind, can potentially make you feel more confident, content and in control of your life.​

When not working you can normally find me exploring the Norwegian countryside together with my family, friends and rescue dog Luna.

My Approach

Negative stress can develop due to many different reasons. My aim is to provide you with some hands on skills and techniques, for you to feel more on top of things. Together we might explore and identify 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. I will use the most suitable approach for the issues you're going through.
