Questions regarding life and the human experience has been prevalent in my life since I was a child. This curiosity means that I dive into a wide range of topics and activities aside from psychology and philosophy, among others meditation, music, nature, chemistry, biologi, IT and different areas related to physical health. My experience is that this curiosity contributes to clients sensing a sincere interest in their experience. I have also traveled a lot in Asia, the US and Europe and have experienced a lot of different cultures, thus giving me a greater understanding of the way culture influences us, and perhaps even more importantly; a greater insight into that which is common for all of us human beings.
As a psychologist and human being I have found it meaningful to work from an approach focused on presence, meaning and connection. Aside from my education as a psychologist I have an education in existential therapy. I combine the existential approach with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy as well as Compassion Focused Therapy. I include mindfulness and meditation practices in the therapy when it makes sense to the client. Several of my travels in Asia, the US and Europe has been centered around meditation and studies of the underlying philosophy.
In order to continuously deepen my understanding and professional practice, I participate in courses on a regular basis and have frequent contact with other professionals. Some of the settings for this is therapy and supervision.
