As communication professional I have launched many products and brands in the world of business for the past 20+ years. Finally the day has come to launch my very own brand! I have never been more nervous in my life. (seriously, I feel shaky for even writing this) But life begins at the end of our comfort zone so I hereby take the leap and jump into the unknown.
Let me introduce Poolside Holistic Counseling!
At Poolside I offer holistic counseling sessions (in Swedish, English and Dutch) for anyone who wants to take a break from this hectic world and be present with what is.
What is holistic counseling?
Holistic counseling is a way of working with people that supports the emerging of awareness and self-knowledge in individuals in order to overcome the obstacles that can prevent a free and full individual expression in the world. In other words: it’s about living life to the fullest.
The story of Poolside
The notion of living life to the fullest has been rooted deep inside me for as long as I can remember. I feel an incredible longing to make the most out of my time here on earth and to be aware and awake while doing that. Ever since I was little, I have felt that I could be good at working with people in a therapeutic context. I however realized that I needed to ground myself first and work through what was preventing me from living my life to the fullest. That is why I have spent many years in therapy and education/courses/workshops in the field of personal development and self-actualization. I will continue my journey in personal development because I see it as a lifelong commitment. However as of today, as a trained holistic counselor, I will also offer sessions to people who want to explore their inner world. People who (like I did and sometimes still do) answer yes to one or more of these questions:
- Do you feel stressed, tired, burned out, numb, have difficulty to focus or feel joy?
- Is the voice of your mind running your life?
- Do your past experiences affect your daily life?
- Do you wonder if there is more to life than sleep-work-entertainment-sleep?
Does this resonate with you? Check out my newly launched website to read more:
Naturally my brand needed a graphical profile and a website. That’s the result of working with business communication for so many years: I have gone full-blown nerd-crazy when it comes to logotypes, fonts, pictures and texts. I am incredibly grateful for the professional support of Alexandra Németh (graphic design @grundform.se), Bengt Säll (photo @greystudio.se) and Jonas (IT and the ♥ of my life).
And since we live in 2019, of course Poolside can also be found on social media. I’d be so grateful and really happy if you would like to follow and/or share Poolside on Facebook and/or Instagram! I intend to fill these media with inspiration and information throughout the years to come.
As Oprah Winfrey said:
You have to find what sparks a light in you so that you in your own way can illuminate the world.
Poolside is my own and new way to illuminate this world.
It is my sincere wish it will somehow enrich you!
