Individual therapy in English

 

Life as an expat in Denmark or any other country can be overwhelming. Whether you prefer to work as a couple, in a group or individually, I offer English counselling and therapy centered around your needs.

Amongst other issues, individual therapy can help you through life crises, grief and bereavement, trauma, negative thought patterns, anxiety, depression and stress. Furthermore, you can strengthen your sense of self, your self-worth and your relationships as well as learn how to regulate yourself in emotionally challeging situations.

​I believe that the relationship between my client and myself is important for the outcome of therapy; and I always aim to create a confidential, warm and empathic environment. My qualification allows me to combine the theoretical lenses of various schools of psychology enabling me to offer a holistic, bespoke approach to your concerns as an expat in a foreign country.

In my experience, many of our struggles can be traced back to how we learnt to interact relationally in our childhood. We can't go back and change our childhood traumas, but in adult life we can heal; and when appropriate, I will draw attention to relationship patterns that may have been valuable earlier in your life, but no longer serve you any purpose and as such might be keeping you from leading the life you wish to lead.

Fees

Depending on your needs, I offer short-term (6-12 sessions) as well as longer-term, open-ended individual therapy.

For therapy to have a positive outcome, regularity and continuity in attendance are important; usually, I recommend weekly sessions, but other arrangements can be discussed.

The fee for each individual session is DKK 950. All sessions are 50 minutes long. The fee is payable either in cash or by Mobile Pay on 85936 prior to or at the beginning of each session. Alternatively, a bank transfer can be made in due time before the session. Booked, but unpaid sessions will not be conducted.

To save bank fees when using bank transfer, some clients prefer to bulk-pay; in these cases, payment must be made before the first of the collectively invoiced sessions. Any sessions not used will be reimbursed at the end of our work together, any bank fee being paid by the client.

I have a few low-cost places for students or those who may have difficulty paying the full fee, please ask.

Cancellations, missed sessions and lateness

Whilst I am sensitive to the fact that an emergency may occur, late cancellation, absenteeism and lateness reduce my ability to offer you the best possible therapy as well as may reduce my ability to accommodate the scheduling needs of my other clients. As such, I request your full cooperation with the following policy:

Any sessions missed or cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice by a client will have to be paid for in full. The same applies if a client is late in which case the session will not be extended but kept within the time frame for the planned session.

Furthermore, 2 consecutive absences without advanced notification may result in the cancellation of all your remaining scheduled appointments, as such failures may negatively impact your treatment plan.

 

In the event that I have to cancel a session, I will aim to rearrange within the same week, but if that is not possible, I will not charge you for the session.
