I’m one of the pioneers who brought and applied the solution-focused approach to Finland during the last 30 years. My solution-focused training is from Mental Research Institute and Brief Family Therapy Institute in the 1980’s, after which Insoo Kim Berg and Elam Nunnally were my mentors.
I’m very happy in supporting and developing leadership, customer service and work welfare. Making tacit knowledge of skilfull personnel into shared knowledge, is for instance a great tool in development.
A major part of my work today is leading and training solution-focused psychotherapists, leaders and supervisors in University training programs.
I’m also doing workshops in many countries in Europe and beyond as well as participating and speaking at international conferences.
