Kristine Asferg is a multicultural psychologist with a passion for mental health and community. She is open-minded, warm and brings a welcoming approach to therapy.
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.
