Kristine’s story

Although I was originally headed for a career in biochemistry during school, it is actually no surprise to me that I have ended up in a completely different part of ‘town’. Somehow it just never seemed quite right and it was not until I was working with people on a daily basis, that I knew I wanted to change direction completely. So I ended up on this path through the road less travelled, to get where I am now and for that I can only be grateful. Now I often think back and wonder, had my schools offered classes on psychology in kindergarten, I would probably have gotten here sooner!

Community has been the cornerstone of my career, having been an avid volunteer for many years myself. Through these experiences, I have been a part of so many different communities, that I otherwise would never have come across. This has fostered a more open-minded and non-judgmental attitude within myself, which is now essential to the way I approach therapy. 

I am Danish but an international at heart, having grown up abroad and moved around a lot during my life. The international community has always been my home, no matter which corner of the world I have lived, be it Bangkok, Copenhagen or Kuala Lumpur! This means I am culturally sensitive and I share many of the experiences that you will have too. Our common ground is a great platform for empathy to blossom.

I use a range of techniques in therapy which I specifically tailor to the clients needs. My hope is that clients can feel welcome, heard and understood with me, as I am patient, warm and have an old soul.

I want to make space for your peace and for more joy in your life. Whilst I cannot give you all the answers, I can help give clarity when everything seems like one big rain cloud. 

Warm regards,

"I decided to start talking to Kristine at a moment when I felt overwhelmed by work, personal projects and by the lack of social interactions. My partner and I, we were also about to have a baby girl in a few months, and I had promised myself that I would work a bit on me before the baby comes in order to be prepared and to be a good father. Starting therapy was difficult as I had to overcome my scepticism and my reluctance to it. Where I am from, there is a bit of stigma on people that go for psychotherapy, and that probably also contributed to my reluctance. Looking back, I can tell that it was one of the best decisions I ever made. I was constantly dealing with work pressure (as well as self-imposed pressure) and had the feeling that I am not good enough for my role. Therapy is journey of self-exploration. Kristine guided me throughout this journey and helped me understand the emotional processes behind my feelings, as well as how to deal with them. The pressure is still there from time to time and sometimes comes with intense emotions. However, I do know where my emotions come from, and have more tools to help me deal with them and control how I react to adversity. In one of the sessions, Kristine told me something that really stuck with me: that we are not born to work and fulfil tasks, but we are born to give and receive affection. Thus, I told my grandma that I love her and that I am proud of her (for the first time) before she passed away and I hope she is aware of that wherever she is. And up to now, not a day went by without telling my daughter that I love her. I am proud of myself. And that is what the therapy sessions with Kristine brought to me. I am really thankful for that."
