Additional information

Marie has many years’ experience seeing patients both individually and in groups. She has run groups for parents as part of a programme for the child/adolescent and their parents/carers. Marie also has experience working with children and adolescents who present with challenging behaviours, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) (especially high functioning) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). In her work with children and their parents, Marie often works with the extended family, as well as with the school.

Marie has been a guest lecturer at universities in Sweden, and a facilitator at workshops, conferences and training events throughout the UK (NOTA and BABCP), in Sweden and the USA (ATSA). She has run courses and educated professionals and students about children and adolescents who display harmful sexual behaviours. Marie has also offered training and supervision to other professionals who work with children and adolescents in a dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT)-informed approach.

As a therapist, I have worked for many years with children and adolescents who have been sexually abused, suffered from complex trauma or experienced other trauma, and/or who displayed harmful sexual behaviours. Over the last few years my client group increased to include those who experience deliberate self-harm, suicidal thoughts, depression and psychosis, among other difficulties. My goal is to give everyone a chance to live a happy and fulfilling life. As a qualified social worker I have worked in child protection with unaccompanied minors and asylum seekers.
