About Haga LifeCenter
Haga LifeCenter was founded in 2003 by Psychologist Fredrik Bengtsson. The purpose was to support people and working life to manage the paradigm shift that began around the year 2000 and which has become clear only now. A society in change creates anxiety and stress and Haga LifeCenter’s task has been to act as an oasis and support for people and organizations over the years. The paradigm shift itself, Fredrik has portrayed in his books ”Making life come together – about the work and life conditions of younger career people” 2000, ”The Way Further – on burnout as an opportunity” 2003, ”Getting the pieces in place – about the search for authenticity and self-esteem” 2005, ”The Good Life and the Four Rooms of Change” 2011 and ”Lifeplanning – A holistic approach to burnout and depression” 2020. ”Continuous reflections on social development he also communicates via his blog” The Good Life ”fredrikbengtsson.nu.
Fredrik Bengtsson is an Existentially Oriented Psychologist and within the framework of Haga LifeCenter, he has briged theory and understanding of the outside world into concrete programs and services to support individuals and organizations to heal from burnout, depression and anxiety and to develop resilience and a personal sustainability formula. As an Organizational Psychologist, Fredrik has worked with supporting and guiding managers and management groups in Swedish and international companies to unite sustainable employees, well-functioning managers and a healthy culture – with good economic profitability and development. As a Strategic Consultant in the field of health, Fredrik works with supporting Insurance companies and organizations to develop services that lead to improved health and well-being for their customers and/or employees.
As a Clinical Psychologist, Fredrik has developed unique programs based on Existential Psychology where the sense of meaning is considered to be the center of life. Through these programs he and his team help people who are affected by stress, exhaustion, life crisis, depression and anxiety disorders to regain health, well-being and to build resilience. The Life Planning program, which was launched in 2003, has helped thousands of people to heal from Psychological distress and is being offered in different versions and for different target groups. There is also a proactive version of the program named ”Balance in Life” . ”See more under the Individual Support tab”.
When the Agenda 2030 and The Global Goals were formulated in 2015, the world got a structure to relate to which also includes the Social Sustainability goals where, among other things, Health and Well-Being and a Sustainable Working Life are included. Haga’s long work and experience of working with these issues meant that the focus now became to contribute in various ways to the realization of the goals in Sweden and internationally.
The core of the business is man and man’s existential and psychological needs, where personal sustainability, growth and prosperity is Haga’s special nisch. Haga offer its services in Sweden and internationally such as in other European countries and in the USA. It has also a visionary role since 2013 to work with Senegal and the Ivory Coast in West Africa to support them in the work on Agenda 2030 with mutual learning and exchange between Sweden and therse countries and more recently in the Middle East. In everything we do and no matter where we go, we assume that Sustainability begins with you!
”Forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except one thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation. You cannot control what happens to you in life, but you can always control what you will feel and do about what happens to you”

The second oldest square in Stockholm, slightly younger than Stortorget, Järntorget dates back to around 1300 and remained the city’s most important trading center for centuries – constantly busy and crowded, scents and sounds were mixed while the goods were transported from country to country across the square with winds brought up and down by the surrounding buildings. Today a well-known and loved square for both Stockholmers and tourists from all over the world gathering around its many cafes and restaurants.
