The cellar

The physical location in Uppsala if you prefer to meet here.

A clinic with its primary focus on treating

– Burnout, the effects of long term stress
– The consequences of long term pain
– Depression without using medication

The coaching seems to work great digitally when we live in different places – but some find it more personal and pleasant when they meet me here at Humlegatan in Uppsala or close by.

Doing it here gives us the opportunity to get a closer relationship and thus be able to discuss troubles even deeper and better. For some it’s more personal so they can open up better to topics and discussions that might be really crucial to make the progress they might need to get forward. It might make CBT-treatment easier and some can find it more relaxed and relaxing to be outside and take a walk while taking tough discussions. That’s a way of doing it that is really comfortable and pleasant, compared to sitting in a small room in a chair and just staring at someone else when talking. Doing it the “classic” way, two people in a room, perhaps sitting in a chair each and watching each others every move might feel really uncomfortable or really, really clinical, which might not help. When taking a walk it doesn’t matter if it’s silent for a few moments when someone’s thinking about something or digesting some new input. It’s closer to a relaxed conversation between friends…

If we meet up locally it’s possible to exercise or treat manually as well. Using the body in some way is always a part of the treatment, there’s none out there who doesn’t need a good, adequate dose of physical exercise, if you don’t know what that is it could be useful to get some help. Some feel really good when they exercise really, really hard and really blow off all that steam and stress – they get nothing but positive results out of that. Some really can’t use their bodies much before they get serious trouble and decline energy-wise and get more of all their symptoms. Some have never exercised, some have no idea how to do strength training but might feel really great and benefit a ton from doing so and if that’s the case, some guiding in the gym and personal training might be really beneficial for their pain. It needs to be adequate, balanced and good enough though. That’s the hard part. If it’s too hard to find how much that is – some help might be great.

Having the freedom to get outside and doing things locally might be used to do other things than just walking and talking as well; things that bigger institutions rarely tend to. There’s a good bunch of examples that’s I’ve done with clients “out there” where people ask if “this really is a part of the program?”.

CBT to once again be able to drive a car to regain the freedom to be able to drive and do whatever you want to once more. To be in an accident or incident so you get such a stress-response when getting into a car that you really can’t be there is quite the handicap. It gives you such anxiety that you freak out entirely so you really can’t dare to or want to drive. Solving that might be easier if someone’s by your side. Someone you trust who’ve done it before.

Fear of the dark have been treated with a similar CBT-approach. Doing what’s scary or perhaps even terrifying might be impossible to do yourself, but with someone there with you it might just be possible to do – to be able to do the progress you need.

Panic attacks have been treated. They generally need to be treated where they are provoked – so we need to be in the uncomfortable environment. So we have been, we’ve treated – and regained plenty of freedom, self-esteem and normalized a big part of everyday life.

Orthorexia, bothered/strange eating-patterns or pure eating disorders are hard to tend to by just talking about them. Perspective or even tending to the reason why it’s there might work far better.

Social anxiety have been treated.
Sprints have been done.
Appetite have been found and the joy around food have been rediscovered – to actually appreciate it once more.
There’s been some heavy dead-lifts.
Death and values have been the topic at graveyards. “What’s actually worth doing, tending to and think about in this short time we’re here?”
Social aspects have been tossed around. Should one keep relationships that you suffer from? Could divorce be the best solution? “Should you talk to your mum about this?”
Technique while running have been discussed, practiced and repeated.
Mindfulness practice. Look at small things. Breathe. Pick some flowers. Feel your feet. Eat, taste, feel fruit and berries…

Life is wide – and then you’ll need to be comfortable to talk about what’s actually important – your actual, true problems. My ambition is that you should be safe doing so with me.


… But there’s competence to tend to smaller, purely physical, projects as well.

It doesn’t look like much, but it sure seems to work!

Physical activity and manual therapy can
solve plenty of problems.

But if LIFE is a problem we’ll have to tend to that as well.

If so, we’ll use a wider approach than just tending to the physical parts.

Plenty of curiosity and questions alongside ordinary diagnostics initially pokes around the case enough to get a decent picture of how you’re doing and why.

Then it’s just the solution…

What we do about it depends on how you’re doing and why. An eclectic approach and a bio-psycho-social perspective is implemented to be able to give an effective treatment with wide ranging troubles.

People are all too complex for just one tool to be able to give the best result.

Change is hard, takes plenty of time and energy. If you’re willing to act, take responsibility for a decent change and give yourself the time and priority and you’re worth – and for real strive towards improvement since you’re tired of where you are we might match perfectly.
