Born in Denmark, I moved to Luxembourg 20 years ago. First I worked with engineering and later on with group facilitation, group dynamics, personality types and over the years I got more and more drawn towards self-development training.
Around 10 years ago I started studying Gestalt Therapy and have now for the last 5 years had a successful Gestalt Therapy praxis in Luxembourg.
This podcast will deal with topics I have come across in my praxis, in my day to day life or current events that are happening in the world. All topics are related to mental well-being and existential questions.

    What is Gestalt Therapy?

    What is Gestalt Therapy?

    In this episode, I explain a bit the origin, the characteristics, and finally who can benefit from Gestalt Therapy.

    Gestalt Therapy is very much an” in the moment” kind of therapy that a lot of my clients like. We do not start session after session from early childhood but dive into the problem at hand.

    I give an example of an unfinished business moment, discuss the empty chair method and I even sing for you!

    I hope this episode will give you some idea of what Gestalt Therapy is and what it can do for you. If you have questions after you have listened to this episode please feel free to reach out to me.

    Easily Blushing

    Easily Blushing

    Easily blushing, it can be charming but when blushing goes past rosy coloured cheeks and into a phase of red spots in neck, chest and face, overheating and sweating, depletion of energy and, feeling shame it can become limiting and burdensome.

    In this episode, I address this issue as it is a common occurrence for a lot of people, including me. It is good to bring awareness to it because perhaps you, like me, have dealt with this your entire life, people making comments on your red face, making it even worse which resulted in feeling more anxious when you feel this redness coming up again in certain situations.

    And for those of you that never really experience this, it is good to hear what easily blushing can do to some people so that in the future you can help this person get more comfortable and at ease.

    In the figure of today, I go over the need to change our perception, emotions and, feelings around easily blushing.

    I end this episode with the Paradoxical Theory of Change by Arnold Beisser “ Change occurs when one becomes what she is, not when she tries to become what she is not.

    Long Term Expat - Living like a stranger in both worlds

    Long Term Expat - Living like a stranger in both worlds

    Living as an expat abroad and dealing with different countries and cultures can be challenging.

    In this episode I talk about Hugo who is made up of a lot of my clients but is also part of me as I too am an expat living for more than 25 years outside of my native country Denmark.

    What happens when Hugo goes back to his home country, how does he feel when he just arrives?. How can he fit in again with his family and friends, whose lives have continued without him? What makes it hard to leave his country and his family again? And when he arrives “home”, he questions where is “home” really.

    Gestalt Therapy has helped Hugo find a new awareness, how to make sense of this expat life by looking at it from a different angle. Listen to this episode to find out what this different angle is. 



    I end this episode with a quote from Frederick S. Perls, the father of Gestalt Therapy;

    “ Nobody can stand the truth if it is told to him. Truth can be tolerated only if you discover it yourself, because then the pride of discovery makes the truth agreeable.”
