I am so glad you found me!
My name is Eva-Mari Thomas. I mainly do individual therapy focusing on dealing with stress, depression and anxiety. I work with both children and adults.
My focus is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
I was born and raised in Sweden but I lived, studied and worked in the U.S. for 16 years. While there I earned Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Social Work with an emphasis on children and families. Since moving back to Sweden I have earned an additional Bachelor’s Degree in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
I am certified as a social worker and have also been certified in and worked with coaching, supervision, and mediation.
One of my special areas of interest is helping individuals who are having trouble acclimatizing to life in Sweden.
In addition to my work within both the public and private school systems here in Stockholm I have been a member of the advisory board for The International Journal of School Social Work since 2010.
What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
Cognitive behavioral therapy is a form of therapy designed to focus on and work with your current difficulties and situation rather than indulging in the past.
Thoughts, feelings and behaviors are interrelated and influence each other. Looking at how they are linked together may help to explain much about how we feel.
In CBT, we focus on the interaction between the individual and their surroundings, here and now. It is also characteristic that we are more interested in problem-solving than the causes, and that we are interested in how our behavior is influenced by our thoughts, and vice versa. This does not mean that we ignore the past, instead we try to gain an understanding of our past, how it can still affect us in the present, and how best to deal with it both now and moving forward.
