About Me

Hi, I´m Marie-Louise from Denmark.


By profession, I am a certified reflexologist and Positive Psychology counsellor.

I came to the UK in Dec. 2019 and from January 2020 I worked as a Nanny for a single
dad taking care of his almost 2-year-old son and occasionally his 7-year-old daughter.

Despite the outbreak of COVID, I was then hired for a short period by a young couple once
a week, to look after their 7-month-old son, as the mother needed to recharge her batteries after a difficult pregnancy and labour.

Then I worked in another Nanny position for two surgeons looking after their two young sons ages 5 and 7 for 6 1/2 months.

In the summer of 2023, I ended a position as a Nanny/childcarer working for an American Air Force family (with an excellent Recommendation Letter). I worked for them for 8 1/2 months where I looked after their little 5 1/2 yr old girl.

During the summer of 2023, I had several short stand-in jobs. I was looking after a very nice doctor´s 9-year-old son with milder multispectrum Autism.

Then a couple, who very shortly visited Cambridge, booked me to look after their 6-year-old daughter with more severe Autism plus a baby boy.

In September 2023 I worked in a stand-in position for a couple of weeks looking after a little
6-month-old baby boy until the family went to the US.

For the past 6 1/2 months, I have worked again as a Nanny/childcarer in another part-time position which temporarily has been paused, (on the 13th. of May 2024), as the mother & child
I work for, has gone back to their home country for the next 4 months.

- THEREFORE I AM NOW AVAILABLE FOR STAND-IN JOBS & BABYSITTING DURING THIS PERIOD - ONE-DAY HIRES ARE VERY WELCOME TOO.
(No cooking).

! Please note that I am not a childminder.

I AM ALSO OPEN TO LOOKING AFTER YOUR DOG/CAT OR IF YOU HAVE AN ELDERLY FAMILY MEMBER WHO NEEDS COMPANIONSHIP IN THEIR HOME I AM VERY EXPERIENCED IN THAT FIELD TOO.


I have worked with many people from various parts of the world, within my field of work as well as volunteering, so I am used to interacting with people of all kinds, ages, and cultures.

-I am also a huge animal lover, (dogs, cats) as long as they are well-behaved.

I am positive, empathetic, calm, humorous, honest and firm but fair.
I have travelled much earlier (and lived in four different countries).

As I get around by bike I am only available in the areas not too far from the city centre.

I am also happy to work short/shorter stand-in positions on the sidelines.


Looking after one child at a time is preferable, but can be negotiable depending on the
situation.


I am fully COVID-19 vaccinated + 2 x Booster and am a non-smoker.

UPDATE:
A new NEGATIVE COVID test has been taken on 12/05/2024.

Thank you for having taken the time to read my profile :-)
