About Rakel

Rakel Róbertsdóttir is a developmental therapist, family therapist and clinical hypnotherapist. Rakel has worked as a director in an independent residence for the mentally disabled in Hafnarfjörður since 2009. Family matters are central to that work, so Rakel decided to study family therapy and has been offering counselling for the past 3 years at her clinic at The Quality of Life Center. She has also worked for MSS in Reykjanesbær conducting interviews, as well as organising and teaching courses. Rakel's experience is quite extensive, but she always focuses first and foremost on people and their well-being and how to increase their quality of life through conversation, thereby strengthening relationships between family members. Family therapy is for individuals, families and couples alike.
