Anxiety and depression
“We all know the feeling of being somewhat depressed and anxious, which are completely natural emotions. When we talk about them as disorders, the emotions are persistent and may even prevent you from doing the things that you are usually able to do in everyday life. Perhaps you have noticed that you have started to ponder more, often get caught up in negative thoughts or worry about things you cannot let go of. Another dimension of anxiety and depression is that one can become concerned about the diagnosis itself. It can have an impact on self-perception and feeling of identity. In the treatment of depression and anxiety, we always start with a thorough conversation about your symptoms and general situation. We review together what the disorders represent for you and how it manifests. Then, of course, we discuss your wishes for the course, and together we make a plan before the treatment starts.”
“Grief is our emotional reactions to irreversible loss, and it can be a reaction to various happenings. Most of us know about the grief in connection with the death of a close relative, but the grief can also occur in other situations, like after a broken relationship or loss of mobility. It can also show up when we lose a future dream we had, for example in case of unwanted infertility or sudden onset of serious illness.”
“When we lose, we suddenly see the world in a different light, perhaps as a more uncertain place. Maybe our perception of life is shaken, maybe our ideas about the future change. No matter the situation, we react very differently to loss and grief, and there is no “right” way to grieve. As a person, you may not be the same again, but there is hope that life can get better, even if you carry a great deal of grief.”
Next of kin
“Next of kin “Are you a next of kin? Are you close to someone who is suffering from physical or mental illness or dissatisfaction? Then you know that it also affects the closest relatives. How best to support someone who is ill or not thriving is rarely easy in the beginning. It is often something that one learns along the way and the task might feel overwhelming. It is challenging to find the balance between helping and supporting, while at the same time respecting the other person’s integrity and self-determination. Remembering your own well-being and reloading energy is also challenging when life is suddenly busier and characterized by worries. In therapy, we cannot change the difficult conditions of life. But we can talk about how we react, the way it affects us and how we best position ourselves in relation to new life situations and the relationship with the victim.”
Brain Injury and Concussions (Neurology)
“When you get a brain injury or concussion, it may cause crisis and grief reactions, anxiety and depression. Many experience changes in either one or more of these areas; cognitive, physical, energetic, linguistic and social. You are suddenly in a new reality and the immediate joy of having survived a potentially dangerous situation slowly slips into the background. The attention gets focused on how to cope with the new situation and with the limitations that the injury has caused. Family life, relationships and sexuality are also often affected.”
“I have worked for many years in rehabilitation, where I have provided support, counseling and therapy to people suffering from brain damage or concussion. I have an in-depth knowledge of the complexity and interplay between the consequences of the injury or illness, and I know that there is hope for a better life, even if one has to go through it with “scars on the brain.”
Short about Anne’s treatment
“I offer primarily cognitive therapy. ‘Cognitive’ has to do with what we think and how we think. I offer classic cognitive therapy where we look at how thoughts and emotions are related and affect your behavior. I also offer metacognitive therapy, where we work to strengthen your awareness of worries and musings, and learn about thoughts that are useful to engage in. Both methods are basically therapy that teach you helpful strategies, methods, and skills. Both forms of therapy are evidence-based, and the therapy will always be adapted to your personal needs.”
