Create a life that feels good on the inside, not just one that looks good on the outside
It can be difficult to find the right help when you are thinking about tackling distressing issues. I am a Clinical Psychologist who is dedicated to improving mental health and emotional well being. I offer psychological assessment and treatment for a wide range of emotional, behavioural and psychological difficulties. I help people who seem completely put together actually feel that way. Whatever end of the mental health spectrum you sit I offer insightful, nurturing, yet challenging therapy to meaningfully elevate you into a better space. Wellness takes work.
I run a private practice in Stavanger as well as provide therapy online. I earned my Masters degree at The University of Edinburgh and my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at The University of Glasgow, in the UK.
In addition to my blog, I am a contributing writer at Stavanger Chamber of Commerce. I also regularly contribute to a wide variety of popular publications including Norways News in English & the BBC.
I enjoy getting people thinking about the ways they think. I give talks and lead discussions. When communities are engaged in prioritizing their emotional wellbeing, everything (and everyone) works better.
I don’t believe in practicing from a distance and bring my real self into my work in an accessible and open way. I am wholeheartedly invested in the people I work with and believe therapy works best when it is a collaborative process. I strive to maintain the most engaging, effective and ethically sound practice possible. The heart of my philosophy is reflected in the ten principles of my practice below.
