“If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it’s not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever.” – Dalai Lama XIV
Sometimes when life is stressful we find that negative thoughts and feelings continuously circulate in our minds, leading us to feeling trapped in a web of overthinking. Over time, we can develop a habit of worrying, which becomes prominent in our daily lives. Overthinking and worry prolong our negative moods and inhibit us from living a more fulfilling life.
I am aware that it can be uncomfortable to share difficult thoughts, feeling and problems with another person. I always aim to create an overview of what feels complicated and scary. As a person, I have a humorous approach to life and its challenges, which also reflects in my work with my clients. I find that humor can be a great motivator in therapy and it also makes sessions a little more bearable 😊
I aim to simplify my sessions and work with very practical and simple techniques. I would like to show you how you can apply a “less is more” approach in your own life and free yourself from the web of overthinking and excessive worry. I draw on either Cognitive Behaviour Therapy or Metacognitive Therapy.
Sometimes it can be easier to express yourself in your native language. Being born and raised in Denmark I am very well aware of this need. Apart from English, I can provide therapy in Danish, Hindi and Punjabi. I also understand Swedish and Norwegian very well.
I feel privileged that I get the opportunity to work closely with individuals who wish to change and grow. I often find myself being greatly inspired through my work and I have learnt many things personally and professionally from my clients through our co-operative work.
I love food! I recently purchased Mary Berry’s complete cookbook with 650 recipes. Apart from experimenting with recipes in the kitchen I love to travel. Some of my favourite destinations so far are Santorini and Japan! I am also a keen subscriber of Netflix!
