One of our principles is, that our trainers continue to work in their respective fields, utilising EASEL®, in order to maintain knowledge of what they coach. Our network includes all trained EASEL®Coaches and EASEL®Trainers, about 30 from a wide variety of fields. When two or more trainers are required, we invite professionals from our network, with the appropriate background, depending on the client’s needs. You can also request to have a specific trainer from our network.

EASEL®Facilitators and Coaches use EASEL® to strengthen their own work, and the social emotional skills of their clients. However, they do not train clients to use the EASEL® method on their own clients. EASEL®Trainers, following their own 3 year training, give methodological training. To ensure quality and safety, based on continuous development and testing, EASEL® methodology and facilitation programs always include EASEL Training as one of the organizers, and an EASEL®Trainer as the head trainer.

Here are the contact details for our core team.

As the founder and CEO of EASEL Training, I am responsible for the quality of our programs and services. My strengths as a trainer, come from working with a wide range of clients, and in various roles. As a biochemist, trainer, teacher, group supervisor and coach, psychotherapist, and entrepreneur, I have over 20 years of international experience working in challenging social interactions and coaching on them, in my various roles. I have worked on all levels from Finnish and Swedish municipal workers to EU-commission executives in Brussels, special needs students and families with challenging child behaviour to social healthcare and educational professionals, developing small teams in business to entire communities renewing their working culture, and leaders seeking help in leading “difficult” employees.

As our Product Specialist, I am responsible for importation, representing English WOW-saddles in Finland and the Baltic, retail and user training. At Savikko, am also regarded the Customer Happiness Manager, because customers often regard our animal-assisted exercises the highlight of the day. I am responsible for the well being and training of our dogs and horses, and I act as one of the trainers for animal-assisted interaction exercises. I’m a riding instructor and EASEL®Facilitator (in training). In the future, my job description will be supplemented by psychological services, but, for 2016-2018, I’m concentrating on the WOW-saddle launch and training my horses for more challenging competitions.
