Helena Swanström


Helena Swanström

Somatic Therapist

I'm a cardiology nurse from Sweden with 30 years of experience working with people. For several years I've now been focusing on supporting individual growth in different ways. I've come to discover that difficult events, stress and traumas many times stands in the way for our own healing process. By looking into this with gentleness and support you'll gain increased awareness and different tools to start your own healing journey.

I have been through several different types of therapy, which have all helped me, but I still had bodily reactions that I couldn’t control and that kept coming back. Working with Helena has been very powerful, I have discovered new ways of exploring my sensations and reactions, and mostly ways to live through them and grow stronger and calmer. As a physician and neurologist, I am absolutely amazed by the extent of knowledge Helena has of the nervous system, and its relationship to emotions and sensations. As soon as I started with her, I realized that she is extremely competent, very experienced, and her techniques are based on hard science, and a profound knowledge of the nervous system and the body. Helena is a very strong therapist, she is confident, knowledgable, and very resourceful. Every session is a powerful experience, it is sometimes a difficult journey, but definitely the most powerful and profoundly healing that I have experienced. She has the rare ability to make you feel supported and safe, while empowering you to be able to heal on your own. Thank you so much. Emilie R
