Are you an international student or expat in Aarhus and you seek support for your well-being and mental health?
I often hear people say, “I can handle this on my own; I’ll talk to my friends or family, and it will get better. Why should I pay someone to listen to me?”
While daily stressors and occasional sadness are normal parts of life that often resolve on their own, if your mental health problems persist, seeking professional help can significantly improve your life.
What about you? Are you currently experiencing any of the following:
- Feeling stuck in your professional or personal life?
- Unsure how to cope with negative emotions such as anger, violence, or sadness?
- Trapped in a prolonged period of rumination and worries?
- Struggling with a sense of not fitting in?
- Experiencing fear of rejection?
- Being sensitive to criticism or self-critical?
- Not feeling good enough at work or in your relationships?
- Dealing with loneliness and a lack of friends and relationships?
- Unable to find your place and a “home”?
- Experiencing a lack of energy or motivation?
- Battling unhelpful habits or addictive behaviors that you’d like to weaken?
- Facing any other persistent issues, like depression or anxiety, lasting for more than six months?
Life presents challenges, especially when living abroad. However, your life doesn’t need to be put on hold. It would be my privilege to work with you and support you on your journey.
As a compassionate English-speaking psychologist, I specialise in supporting internationals in Denmark as they navigate the challenges of living in a new country.
I offer a supportive and understanding space where we can work together to identify strategies for coping with the stresses of living in an unfamiliar environment.
My goal is to create a warm and welcoming environment where you feel comfortable sharing your thoughts and emotions and where we can work together to create positive change in your life.
I invite you to schedule a free consultation to learn more about how therapy can benefit you.
How to Get Started with Therapy

My therapeutic approach
As your therapist, I create a safe, private, inclusive, and non-judgmental therapeutic space. My approach is rooted in evidence-based methods, specifically Metacognitive Therapy and Emotion-Focused Therapy. Given my extensive background as a psychology researcher, I am dedicated to selecting and providing therapeutic techniques grounded in scientific evidence.
For addressing anxiety and depression, I primarily use Metacognitive Therapy (I am MCTI Registered Therapists). This short-term therapy (8 to 12 sessions) is a recent approach effective in treating various disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress, obsessive-compulsive disorder, social anxiety, depression, and health anxiety. It focuses on helping you understand and regulate your thoughts and emotions, overcome self-defeating beliefs, reduce overthinking, improve self-esteem, manage stress, and build resilience.
In handling relationship issues, I use Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), an empirically-based approach designed to help individuals access, deepen, explore, express, and transform emotions. EFT aims to enhance emotional intelligence and competence, fostering the development of secure relationships.
