I have been a medical doctor in Finland for almost 20 years, first as a GP and later as a radiologist for over 10 years. My desire to cope better with stress lead me to find Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), the knowledge of which I also want to share with others. Through educating myself to understand the mechanisms and effects of stress, I also found self-hypnosis. As I realized and understood the many benefits of hypnosis to my patients, I sought further education. This I found at The London College of Clinical Hypnosis where I completed The Medical Diploma of Clinical Hypnosis. I am now a member of The British Society of Clinical Hypnosis as well as a member of the Finnish hypnosis society, Tieteellinen Hypnoosi ry.

In Finnish:

Valmistuin lääkäriksi noin 20 vuotta sitten, työskentelin ensin TK-lääkärinä ja valmistuin yli 10 v sitten röntgen lääkäriksi. Haluan paremmin ymmärtää ja auttaa myös muita selviämään stressaavissa tilanteissa. Siksi olen kouluttautunut stressilääketieteen kurssilla, opiskellut MBSR (mindfulness based stress reduction)  tekniikkaa ja London College of Clinical Hypnosis opistossa olen suorittanut  terveydenhuollon ammattilaisille suunnatun kurssin kliinisessä hypnoosissa, MDCH, eli  Medical Diploma of Clinical Hypnosis. Olen sekä Tieteellinen hypnoosi ry että The British Society of Clinical Hypnosis jäsen.
