English speaking psychologist in Copenhagen, Lyngby and Skype
Psychotherapy in English
Our team of English speaking clinical psychologists and psychotherapists have worked with foreigners in Denmark since 2010. We have offices in Copenhagen and Lyngby and are available elsewhere via Skype.
We have different psychotherapists and psychologists and we recommond you write us briefly about what you would like help with so we can help suggest the most qualified consultant for your problem.
Is work or school affected? We can help
All psychological challenges have an impact on the environment – and the environment impacts the perceived distress. While our main focus is you and providing you with skills to effectively deal with the environment there may be situations where a third party is needed. For example your work place or school may require a statement regarding your fitness for work or study. It may also be in the process of planning a suitable and gradual return to a full time work week. We can help your organisation understand your needs.
If children or teenagers are involved we may help schools and care takers understand how they can support your child. We collaborate with involved parties on an ad-hoc basis.
In short, we know the system in Denmark and we can step in when it is useful.
Our goal is to deliver simple and effective psychotherapy enabling you to tackle complex problems and introduce real, meaningful change in your life
Typical client challenges
Stress, anxiety and depression
Some of the most common challenges are indivudals experiencing stress, anxiety (incl. fobias, OCD), depression and life crisis. While the impact differs among people, there is often a tendency to isolate self, overthinking and avoid the life you would like to live.
Panick attacks is a form of anxiety that appears to come out of the blue. Heart racing and most people describe it as freightening and extremely uncomfortable. The symptoms are similar to heart problems and for this reason it is advised to have a check-up with your GP to clarify whether it is anxiety related. In therapy you will learn how to tackle panick attacks.
Career and personal development
Sometimes a client sees self as getting passed for promotions, the interesting tasks or feels “left out” in social settings. It can cause overthinking and hopelessness. We help you identify and see behaviours that you control and contribute to opportunities you hope for. It is a process of discovering and learning how to implement new ways living the life you want more of.
Couples therapy and family counselling
A family moving abroad is often experiencing stress. New colleagues, friends, language and ways of interacting socially can be a demanding task. It is easy to get stuck and frustrated with the situation. If not handled properly it may result in increased conflicts between partners.
When there is children involved they too may find it hard to process feelings and express wants and needs. It may result in results in sadness and pasivity and at other times as anger and excessive outward reactions.
We work with couples, children and teens individually and as a family when it is useful.
