I'm an internationally recognised Consultant Clinical Psychologist with many years experience as a therapist, supervisor, mentor, coach, researcher into therapies and also as a lecturer and director of post-graduate University Courses. I have expertise in a range of therapies and approaches and I am a firm believer in adjusting the approach to you, not you to any particular approach.
I was initially trained in Denmark and worked there for a while. I later did my Doctorate in the UK where I have now worked in the NHS since 2002. I have also lived in the US and the Balkans, so I understand how feeling displaced in your life is often distressing, whether that be as an actual immigrant or because you have arrived at a point in your life where things just don't work as they should and where you perhaps did not expect to be. This can manifest as an existential crisis or a specific mental health problem such as 'anxiety' or 'depression' and those two version of distress is likely to require different approaches, hence my focus on having a broad range of expertise that can be adjusted to your needs.
I have published on therapy and other psychological topics in my books, book chapters and scientific papers and I firmly believe that therapy needs to be grounded in strong science. However, it is also a meeting between two unique people who needs to respect the expertise brought from both sides with the purpose of making life better for one partner/couple in that project.
