In the therapeutic process I strive to appreciate, support and nourish that which is life affirmative and has found the way through all what we have handled in life.
The approach is explorative with emphasis on empathy, human warmth and clarity.
Working with permission for the different interventions and steps in the process, is one aspect of clarity.
My therapeutic work is primarily aimed for adults with a normal level of function, which means without need for psychiatric treatment.
My therapeutic background is rooted in several different traditions.
In the recent years I have trained in methods, which are based on the newest research and evidence around how our psyche and body are interconnected to the being we are, through our body and mind and not the least our awareness and higher intelligence.
In the clinical work with trauma and developmental psychology, I specially appreciate the training with Laurence Heller in the method NARM (Neuro Affective Relational Model) for giving me insight and understanding in working with developmental trauma.
As well as the training in Neuro Affective Psychotherapy (NAP) and the Neuro Affective Compasses developed by Susan Hart and Marianne Bentzen.
I am currently in training to treat chok- and situational trauma with Somatic Experiencing (SE), developed by Peter Levine.
I am also trained by Jette Simon to work with couples therapy.
The training is primarily through Sue Johnsons method Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) and also through the Imago method developed by Harville Hendrix.
An important and very deep inspiration to my work comes through the training with Jette Simon, and her appreciative and very warm way of modeling Carl Rogers humanistic Psychology.
I attend regular supervision, for the couples therapy as well as for the individual work.
I took my basic steps as therapist partly with the cathartic therapies with Veeresh at the Humaniversity in Holland and with the primal therapists Svarup and Premartha de Koning in Italy, and partly with the meditative therapies at Osho Multiversity International in India.
I have never the less found my true alignment with the modern therapeutic methods that clearly and naturally addresses the functioning of our autonomous nerve system and our instincts.
I have been interested in personal growth throughout my grown up life, and
I have found great inspiration with the Indian Master Osho, and his very clear teachings about meditation and our human consciousness and potential.
Since the 1980's to 1995 I have also worked as a consultant, project- and IT-manager in computer- and administration development projects as well as projects of transfering technology for the World Bank in Bangladesh.
My professional career peeked with this assignment in Bangladesh. During that time I saw the living conditions in the development countries. My understanding about life and life circumstances for human beings reached a crucial point. I decided to change my vocation and start working with people.
My work is rooted in my joy and it is at the same time a process of my own development towards higher understandings and deeper insights ; how to be human and realize the potential, that is given with human consciousness.
I express my personal experiences of life through Haiku poetry that I create as a diary of moments with inspiration from the wonder of life.
