About me 

I am an art philosopher (MA), art therapist and supervisor (STOry) providing also educational services and product development consulting. 


I am specialized in using and teaching art methods and on the other hand contemporary art. I am also a doctoral student in the University of Jyväskylä, in the subject of art education.


I started my company Johanna Wahlbeck Oy in 2014 and begun working as a full-time solopreneur in the Spring of 2016.

Since 2018 the supplementary firm name is Oivallamme Consulting.


I live in and work from Helsinki, Finland. My mother tongue is Finnish and I have spoken English daily since I was a child.

Training, workshops and coaching:


“Johanna helped us open our minds to alternative futures through the visual arts method. Through Johanna’s interpretations, it seemed that both the past and the future were involved in building a new kind of systemic approach. The activities where nice and the analysis interesting. The method also worked for a group of more than a hundred people.” (Translated from Finnish)
Liisa Virolainen, The State Treasury


“The training day went by quickly, was well planned and it was what I had expected and even more.” (Translated from Finnish)
Master of Health Sciences

Art Therapy:


“Art therapy was beneficial for my self-understanding. Making a picture helped me to name things and feelings. It was also a liberating experience.” (Translated from Finnish)


“Johanna’s art therapy is an investment in your own well-being and spiritual growth. I gained some really important insights about myself during the six-month therapy period – I perceive the world in a new way. You can really get a lot in a short time if you go into the process with an open and curious mind. I can warmly recommend her.”
(Translated from Finnish)
Satu, Entrepreneur


“I got a lot of help from the art therapy for my current life situation: the art therapy helped me to express both good and painful feelings that were difficult to talk about out loud at the time. Johanna is very present and gives a lot of room for reflection. It was easy to work with her, and I highly recommend trying art therapy with a low threshold if you are interested in this type of therapy.”
