Copenhagen psychology

At our Copenhagen psychology centre you will find couple therapists as well as psychotherapist for adults, youth, children and families.

We cover both the treatment of clinical psychological disorders as well as counselling for less pervasive challenges. Our psychologists have different focus areas and we recommend that you write a few words about what you would like help with so we can match you with an experienced psychologist with the best expertise.

Stress, anxiety, depression, self-worth

Some of the most common difficulties we support clients to overcome are related to stress, anxiety, depression, self-worth, identity issues and various forms of crisis. Sometimes the issues are related to the relationship and you may want to consider counselling for couples. A research based approach to psychology and psychotherapy is used in all interventions.

Children and youth

We have a special interest in helping children and youth. Research tells us that early intervention by a child psychologist or with specialised program can be a preventive asset and have a life-lasting effect.

We offer individual treatment and “Cool-Kids” programmes for young children and their families. The Cool-Kids programme teaches the child how to tackle anxiety and shows parents how to best support their child.

Insurance, referrals and subsidies

If you have a referral from your GP you we can help you if you are willing to have online sessions or visit the Frederikssund office. In the Copenhagen psychology centre we do not collaborate with the public health system. However, as a private clinic we are able to offer sessions with little or no waiting.

If you have private insurance, we can often invoice them directly. Please let us know before the first consultation if you intend to use an insurance provider or other payee. Be mindful that some insurance policies have limitations and only cover your consultation in part.

If you are member of “Danmark” you may also be entitled to a subsidy per session.

However, if you are on a budget you may want to consider seeing one of our competent therapist graduates in training. They will offer a reduced price for a consultation.

    Tel.: +45 4245-4600

    I have experience with individuals in all ages (children, adolescents and adults) as well as groups such as families and couples. I am trained in applied methods such as classical CBT, Schema Therapy, Systemic Therapy and Dialectic Behavioural Therapy.

    In the first session we will look at the challenges you are facing and identify a specific area for us to focus on. It is often possible to make a first step towards changing your situation.

    Examples of issues I help individuals overcome relate to depression, anxiety, stress. self-worth issues and different forms of crisis. In couple therapy I help you clarify and understand differences and how you can work towards a common goal supporting a meaningful relationship.

    When I see children and families we work towards an understanding of the child’s need for support and teach the family how it can support the child mature and develop healthy skills for tackling difficult psychological experiences and situations.

    I mainly work with expats and as an expat myself, I have personal understanding of many of the challenges that comes with living in a foreign country and culture.

    You are welcome to contact me if you have further questions or want make a first appointment.
