Therapeutic Puppetry (TP)

   

About Me

Me Åsa (left) at Gudrun Gaudas Workshop in Sweden, 2013.

I am an art therapist working with child, adolescent and family therapy in Sweden. My background is mainly in mental health care and work in a Children´s Hospital. I have a BSc in Social Work and an ongoing MA as well as psychotherapist studies.

I often focus symbolic aspects in my work such as clients´ inner images, rituals, myth and metaphor, combined with art-making, puppetry, drama, storytelling and mindfulness. My believe in puppetry as a vehicle for change inspired me to create this web site in 2008, with the intent of broadening the field of therapeutic puppetry.
