DENNE PROFIL ER IKKE LÆNGERE AKTIV
Fully qualified psychologist, using a selection of counselling methods tailored to your needs and objectives.
My expertise and experience falls into two broad key areas:
- Helping clients to respond to change, such as loss, bereavement or illness
- Helping clients make intentional change in their lives, such as stopping smoking or finding better coping strategies for challenging situations.
Clients typically come to me for help with the following:
More About Me:
I am English, and I understand and speak Danish, but offer sessions in English only. My clients are often native English speakers, but also Danes and others who are comfortable communicating in English.
Types of Sessions and Programmes
I offer single sessions - either full hour-long sessions, or newly introduced mini-sessions for clients experiencing time pressure on the work and/ or home front.
For optimal outcomes, therapy programmes will be booked over 5, 10 or more sessions, but preliminary single sessions are offered at a discount, so we can explore our compatibility for the longer term, or should you simply have a few things you need to share.
Beyond my academic qualifications (BSc Psychology, MSc Psychology), my skills and training include Behaviour Change Techniques, Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques.
Core Counselling Programmes
The first sessions will typically involve a 360 degree exploration of your situation, your environment, the challenges you might be facing, and the feelings you are experiencing. Importantly, we will also look at how you usually cope with negative feelings. Together, we will then explore possible avenues for you to adapt and optimise your cognitive, behavioural and emotional responses to events in your life, to achieve better overall health and well-being.
Behaviour Change Programmes
One of my specialisations is design and delivery of Behaviour Change Programmes. These programmes include courses to STOP or LIMIT health-aversive behaviours, such as smoking, alcohol, and too much internet, as well as courses to START or INCREASE health-protective behaviours, such as exercise and eating fruit and vegetables. Here I use a tailored combination of Motivational Interviewing, and targeted Behaviour Change Techniques to suit your lifestyle, environment and background.
Should you book a 10-session course, you should expect that the first few sessions will last 55 to 60 minutes, as we get to know each other, and the remaining sessions will be closer to 45 minutes. Research indicates that the ideal time to spend together in therapy is around 45 minutes.
Everything we talk about will be kept in strictest confidence, unless it transpires from what we discuss that you or someone you know is in danger, or that young or otherwise vulnerable people are at risk of harm.
These sessions are not the right solution for you if any of the following is true:
- You have thoughts of hurting yourself or others
- You are a minor or you are under the care of a legal guardian
- You are in an urgent crisis or an emergency situation
- You have been diagnosed with a severe mental illness, or if you have been advised to be in psychological supervision or psychiatric care
- You were required to undergo therapy or counselling either by a court order or by any other authority
"What I really loved about the sessions with Jennie is that she is so down to Earth, and you feel comfortable talking about anything, and confident knowing that she will not judge you - also that she has probably heard it all by now! I like the way she makes it clear that everyone has problems, even the psychologist, and that we're kind of all in this together - it's not her knowing all the answers, and me feeling embarrassed." - Læs mere Læs mindre
"What I can say is that I’m positively surprised at how effective the programme with Jennie has been for me. I love that I don't smoke anymore, and I also love how I’m much better able to articulate my own thoughts and urges to myself. How I can put words to my feelings. And how I can rationalise and control them. It’s all so simple and straightforward. It’s that that amazes me. " - Læs mere Læs mindre
