As a child, I was well-behaved. When I reached my teenage years, nearly all adults felt pity for my parents because I suddenly became unmanageable and engaged in activities that adults deemed inappropriate. A few years later, I came into contact with psychotherapy, which became my lifeline.

By the age of 40, I had received significant support through psychotherapy, enabling me to harness my intellectual capabilities for self-education. Over the years, I completed three separate 3-year psychotherapist training programs, as well as an education in trauma therapy, and one as a work supervisor.

In the late 1990s, I established my own company and embarked on my private practice as a psychotherapist, work supervisor, and educator.

In total, I’ve spent approximately 34 years in therapy. Since the inception of my practice, I have received long periods of work supervision. My skills in work supervision and psychotherapy has primarily evolved through practical experience, ”learning by doing”. Though the formal educations provided a strong theoretical foundation, I still gained the most insight by observing and experiencing the work of seasoned, skilled therapists and actively participating as a client or student in their therapeutic interventions and impact.
