I love to lead workshops! I love it when people meet around a special issue, sharing ideas and experiences, and leave with new thoughts that can transform lives! I use dramas and different kind of creative activities that help all participants to be a part of the process and make their own reflections.
These are some workshops that I have been giving, but I am always open to new ideas! Contact me and we can discuss exactly what your group needs.
When offering workshops in the context

Said about Ulrika´s workshops:
”Ulrika is teaching in a way that makes you feel calm and safe. She gives words to what you have experienced and felt, and it´s easy to mirror yourself in the stories and pictures she shares. It´s very easy to listen to her, which allows for an inner healing process to take place.”
”When I listen to Ulrika I feel that after all I am a quite good Mom. She tells about herself in a way that makes me understand that I am not that bad, I actually do a lot of things that are great. That gives me the strength and courage to try new ways in my parenting.”
