My first profession was as Middle School Teacher, but my interest in shy children that never said anything in the classroom except when they could play theatre led me to an acting school and then later into directing theatre, both for children and adults, which I did for many years. Then I applied for a course at the Dramatic Institute in the Feldenkrais® method, and the method captured my curiosity and I decided to do a training in Sigtuna. During my second year I asked if someone worked with Feldenkrais and Children. That was the first time I heard about Dr Chava Shelhav.
After finishing in Sigtuna I decided to do a second training in Vussem, Germany where Chava Shelhav was the educational director. Inspired by new knowledge I did a Child´Space training in Chicago. I have worked with feldenkrais® and children when teaching in a school and now I work Child´Space privatly in Stockholm.
In Child´Space my background with creativity and playfulness is an advantage and affects my work for the better.
A course in Supervision at Uppsala University.
I have participated in a number advanced trainings in Child´Space Chava Shelhav method with Dr Chava Shelhav, and advanced trainings in the Feldenkrais® method for Beatriz Walterspiel, Russell Delman, Günther Bisges, Francois Combeau and organized advanced with Olena Nitefor in Stockholm for 15 years.
