It’s time to stop pretending and be who you really are

Get to know Linda

What does it like to work with me?

I’m not a typical coach or consultant so here are some things you need to know. 

I’m talkative and open, and I rely heavily on my intuition. To find solutions for you, I use that intuition, my experience, and my creative mind to help you.

When we meet, I don’t bring any expectations of who you should be or what you should be doing. Part of my work with you is to explore who you are and have you give yourself permission to be that.

I started doing this work because I’m passionate about creative expression and all of us being who we’re meant to be. That’s the only way we’ll ever be as happy as we can be.

Nothing good comes out of pretending to be someone else and sacrificing pieces of who you are and I see way too many doing just that. This is something I want to change.

When I have a conversation with a client, it’s a relaxed conversation like you might have with a friend. I go off on tangents if my intuition leads me there and we might have a  couple of laughs.

You will walk away with an idea or action step to move you forward but I won’t ask questions and expect you to come up with the answer. That’s not me. And should you need it, I’ll give you a swift kick in the pants to get started 🙂

I rolled my eyes and called you a nasty name when I read that I had to do that for the day. But it did really get me into my creative mode because it got me out of my head and out of my usual ways of doing things.

I want you to know that the calling and need you feel to be yourself and create more joy is important. So stop sacrificing it on the altar of ‘should’. Stop letting other people’s demands and opinions (or what you think these are) stop you from living the life you were born to live.

Self-expression is a human need, it’s been proven over and over

I’ve had to learn the benefits of self-expression all on my own and I don’t want you to go on missing that fulfilling piece of your life. I am a self-confessed multi-passionate creative. That’s where a lot of my joy lies. Let me help you find yours.

If you’re ready to do something about it but you need some support or a swift kick in the pants to get started, get in touch.

You are a delight! You got my creative juices flowing for a writing project.

Born and raised in Sweden, I now live in a small village in the middle of the Norwegian mountains with my daughter, husband, dog, and cat. Here’s me with my daughter. I do my best to raise her well, as any mother would. I want her to become an independent woman who makes good decisions and doesn’t sacrifice herself and her joy on the altar of ‘should’ like so many do.

Thank you for rekindling my creativity. I have taken the time to think up ideas for crafts for my kids again. I feel so much happier and so are they!

I am an artist and a creative consultant – generator, explorer, instigator

My art is more than pictures. It acts as a visual anchor to help inspire, kick start, support, and guide you towards the life you most desire. Towards expressing yourself fully, to come to embody the self that you know is alive inside of you.

I let my intuition guide my choices of subject matter and materials. My work often symbolizes my collectors’ deeper levels. Their spirituality, ideal location, spirit animals. It can also represent a symbol you connect with. My imagery is often inspired by mythology, folklore, and the Norwegian landscape.

I’m a strong advocate of self-expression. My mission in the articles and books I write is to expose your courage and confidence, and support you in owning who you are, expressing yourself, reclaiming your joy, and making your life more fulfilling.

The imagery and content help you focus on your goals, own who you are, and make you feel more alive.

Why does self-expression matter?

As I said at the beginning: I know what it feels like to have the desire to create your own life, to run your life in a way that feels right to you. You can’t pretend to be someone you’re not for very long without consequences – serious consequences.

I know what it feels like to want to see change and not know how to take the first steps. I also know how amazing it feels to own your power. I have been on both sides of this experience.

When I decided to own who I am all the way, to go with my intuition and to be who I am 100 % of the time, it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made – in life and business.


When YOU decide to own who you are all the way, to honour all your parts, and be who you are 100% of the time, you’ll see big changes.

You can’t tell how wet I was in this photo 🙂 Tall, wet grass + long skirt. Click here for the full story.

How I can help…

My mission is to expose your courage and confidence, and support you in owning who you are, expressing yourself, reclaiming your joy, and in making your life more fulfilling.


I’m always experimenting with new ideas, and here are a few ways you can experience my work right now:


If you feel like you’ve lost your joy, or need to peel off the layers it’s hidng behind, I can help. My credentials don’t come from a training program, they are built on my years of experience, my creative mind, and the intuition I’ve worked hard at honing over the years.

It’s real-world experience that supports me in my work. Who needs a “certificate of achievement” when you have that?


Combining a dollop of fun, a good measure of inspiration, a splash of creativity and a sprinkle of initiative, the Expression Energy Boost provides bite-size ways to brighten your business and personal life
