Sabina Westerbäck

Psychologist

Turku

Remote consultation

My strength lies in putting challenges in a new perspective. I have previous experience from both the social-, and health sector as well as psychiatric work. I offer psychological support and short-term therapy for all ages, in English, Finnish and Swedish. My orientation is developmental and psychodynamic, and therefore I see past experiences and previous attachments influencing difficulties of today. However, developmental change is not limited to childhood, and new psychological growth can be facilitated in the therapeutic connection. I welcome you to my practice with matters big or small. I don’t assume to know how you feel, but together we will explore your emotions and goals, and I will respectfully help you understand yourself better. I am an actively listening psychologist, and it´s important to me that you benefit from our sessions. If you prefer, I´m happy to also use EMDR, or more integrative methods, with emphasis on positive psychology and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy).
