A space for you to grow, heal, and thrive.

One foot in front of the other, dear friend

Hi, I'm Alexia 

As the owner & Clinical Director of Hygge & Co., I hold a Masters of Counselling Psychology, as well as an Honours Bachelor Degree in Social Psychology. Having worked in both private and psychiatric spaces with adults and teens, my experiences have provided me with tools to support clients in understanding and fostering meaning-making, and to create a sense of safety in a judgement-free relationship.

While my focus comes from a  variety of frameworks including a trauma-focused approach to ACT, Narrative Therapy, CBT, REBT, and Parts-Work, your sessions would be based on your unique preferences and needs. My areas of interest are anxiety, depression, self-awareness and growth, the HPA Axis, the gut-brain connection, and assisting you in adjusting outgrown habits or ideas.

In terms of Scandinavia - I moved to Norway in the middle of a pandemic...crazy, I know. I speak both Norwegian and English.
