An understanding of you as a human being
“I work from a cross-diagnostic, holistic understanding of the person as a whole. It is about giving you an understanding that we, as humans, have a lot of unavoidable problems in common. Therefore, we also have a lot of common effective methods to deal with them. For example, if you are very self-critical, I can help explain why we, as humans, are like this by nature, and why it is necessary. Why it is more important for us to be negative and anticipate danger, than it is to be happy and happy.
I teach you what aspects of your life and your situation you can influence, and what aspects you do not have the opportunity to change. Understanding where you can make a difference and where you cannot, can give you a more realistic expectation of yourself. And that is a good foundation for getting better. ”
“I help you understand that your state of stress is natural and give you a system for how you can best take your stress into account so that you feel better. Part of the system is knowing how, and when, to react.
In our conversations, our starting point is that your stress is just trying to protect your body from an external threat. It can be anything from problems at work, your relationship, your health or your finances – we can talk about it all. ”
“All types of anxiety act as a safeguard against disaster, even if the disaster does not seem logical or probable. In my treatment, I give you a system to understand anxiety and teach you some techniques to minimize anxiety. Both your body and brain must learn, that the situation is actually not dangerous and that you can live a better life without having to carry around the anxiety. ”
