Meet the founder
My name is Gunilla Andersson and I believe in the power of nature.
I am the founder of Lotus Land and this journey started with my desire to add nature to the therapeutic exchange. Sitting in a therapy room often made me feel small. It could take me a long time to actually find the feelings I needed to talk about and by then the session was over. Being in the wild I get closer to my emotions and nature allows me perspectives that simply does not exists in a room. Wild therapy is different from traditional but one form does not replace the other. I have benefited from both forms.
Like many others, I did a restart of my entire life when the global pandemic of Covid-19 closed down the world. I moved into my vacation house and this became my permanent address, I trained to become a therapist and in addition went for 25 Cognitive Behavioral Therapy sessions, took a hard look at what sustainable life choices I found valuable to pursue and learned how animals sometimes can be essential in supporting humans back to their life. But most of all, I slowed down. I took time to rest, reflect and evaluate. Lotus Land is my way forward.
I am a biologist at heart and cannot help sharing knowledge or pointing in the direction of animals or their traces when I am hiking. I find the sounds of nature to be in connection to my heart and soul. Nothing sooths me like being in the wild. In addition, I am diving deep into the area of Ecopsychology at the moment and find wild therapy, reconnection with nature and biophilia bringing all of my competences into one exciting base.
