Welcome to Counselling & Therapy for Expats


Whether you are a globetrotting pro or a beginner expat, living abroad can be an unsettling experience.


Even for those who have spent years abroad, feelings of inadequacy, marital problems and depression are common issues, which are difficult to face alone.


I work with a wide variety of people ranging from stress-affected leaders, depressed spouses, and burned out teachers, defiant teenagers and unhappy families. The essential in all cases is the ability to be in touch with your true self, to reflect and establish trust and vigor in a respectful way towards yourself and others.


I am passionate about exploring and learning and to find the way as we go along, curiously, carefully and present. I am driven by differences in people, strengths, perspectives and cultures.


My goal is to improve the quality of life for the entire expatriate family, there by establishing a foundation of openness, reflection and responsibility.


My approach is individualized, flexible, collaborative, and confidential. I offer consultations in Danish and English.


I am looking forward to working with you.
