Hej! Jag heter Paula
By: Paula Burchat, BA, RMT, CSMTA(SF) • July 23, 2022
BMMT is off to Sweden.
It’s hard to believe I treated my last client this past week. For now anyway. It’s been a road of ups and downs to get to this point and moving to Sweden seems more like a reality everyday. We depart for Sweden in early August. We’ll be gone for 1-2 years depending on how things go for everyone. With Carl’s work contract, we have the choice to either come home August 2023 or August 2024.
I will be taking some time to help Laurel get settled at school. I do have a work visa. If I do work it will only be part time as I will be the family travel agent. We plan to see as much of Europe as we can while we are there. I will be taking courses in Europe. I’m booked for two courses in Ayr, Scotland in mid September.
I will truly miss seeing you, my clients. I love working with you. I love hearing your stories and I am motivated to help each person who comes in my door. It’s been almost exactly 17 years since I began my RMT career. I feel confident in my abilities and I look forward to continuing my education in Europe and coming home a better therapist than I am now.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve been coming in for 17 years or 7 days, I am always looking to find the best solution for your specific issues. To that end, I leave you with a list of therapists who I know and trust. I have been treated by most of them or know them well.
