Mementos has been established recently and, for now, it is managed by one psychotherapist, its founder. As our operations grow, we aim to find EMDR therapists working as independent practitioners to join our network, so that EMDR therapy would be available in Finland as widely as possible. EMDR therapists working through Mementos are professionals of health care with Valvira’s (The National Supervisory Authority for Welfare and Health) license and several years of experience from psychotherapy. If you are an independent practitioner of EMDR therapy and are interested in joining our expert network, please contact us.
I am a registered psychologist and psychotherapist (Valvira), certified EMDR-therapist, authorised sexual counsellor (Suomen Seksologinen Seura ry) and authorised forensic psychologist (Åbo Akademi). I have held a private practice since 2010, and in 2011 I started using EMDR therapy with my clients. In addition to my work at the practice, I also work as a specialist of forensic psychology at psychology and legal office PsyJuridica and as a dosent of forensic and criminal psychology in the universities of Helsinki and Eastern Finland. I am a registered service provider of rehabilitation with Kela. I also manage a research group at the University of Helsinki. I have developed an EMDR based method for stress management with regard to court hearing, Cope for Court. At the University of Helsinki Faculty of Medicine and Mementos I’m supervising research on EMDR. I am also a deputy member of the Finnish EMDR Association.
