My office is located in Frederiksberg which is a part of Copenhagen. It’s in a central location near Forum Metro station. The address is Sankt Knuds Vej 36, Second floor at Klinik Mitra in Frederiksberg. The office and clinic is owned and run by myself and another colleague. We have 13 psychologists and psychotherapists working with us. Frederiksberg is a peaceful area and our clinic is located on a quiet side street.
New clients are always welcome!
Fee and payment structure:
Individual counseling, hypnotherapy and psychotherapy: 1200 kr. for 60 minutes
Couple counseling and therapy: 1400 kr. for 60 minutes
If you have private health insurance (Danica, Skandia, Topdanmark, Mølholm) they cover some of all of the fee.
At this time I am not able to accept government health insurance (den offentlige sygesikring).
My code of ethics
I follow the ethical principles of Nordic psychologists. This means I always keep what you tell me in your therapy confidential, unless I have your consent to share information. My supervisor and accountant also abide by the rules of confidentiality.
If you have health insurance, the insurer may require information about your therapy, which I will need your written consent to give.
In some rare circumstances (for example, where I become aware of behaviour that puts a child in danger) I am obliged to break confidentiality. If you want more information about these circumstances, you can read more on the Danish Psychology Association website.
Our ethical principles also require psychologists to avoid non-professional, private or sexual relationships with clients.
Keeping and handling of your data
As a licensed psychologist I have a legal obligation to keep a record of your therapy. This includes your address and e-mail, your CPR number in some cases, dates of treatment and notes about what we have discussed in the therapy session. I only make brief notes of the information I need for the therapy process.
I securely store and process your personal data. My handwritten records are stored in a locked cabinet that only I have access to. Licensed psychologists must save records for 5 years. After that I will destroy them.
E-mail and text correspondence is treated confidentially and deleted either immediately, or saved only as long as is necessary.
It is my standard practice to send you a reminder by text message (or e-mail) the day before your appointment. If you do not want a reminder, please let me know.
Individual therapy: 60 min – 1200 kr.
Couples therapy: 60 min – 1400 kr. / 75 min – 1725 kr. / 90 min – 2000 kr.
Payment must be made at the end of each session, unless otherwise agreed.
Cancellations and appointments
If you need to cancel an appointment, I need at least 48 hours notice (in order to offer the time to someone else). If you cancel less than 48 hours ahead, I will require full payment.
It is your responsibility to know when you have an appointment. I strongly recommend that you attempt to keep the appointments you make, because continuity is very helpful in the course of therapy.
If you are late, please text or call me. If I do not hear from you, I will wait 15 minutes, then the appointment is canceled.
Course of therapy
I recommend if possible that the interval between appointments is 1-3 weeks, and at the beginning of therapy no more than 2 weeks. It’s a good idea to make 2 or more appointments ahead.
I actively participate in the sessions and use various methods and techniques depending on you and your situation (you can read more about my methods on my website).
Therapy can be hard work. As a client you might experience resistance and wish to cancel or postpone sessions. You might also experience irritation and dissatisfaction with me or the therapy. If you feel a worsening, please be sure to tell me. The most helpful approach is to have an ongoing dialogue about how the therapy is going.
We can talk about what timeframe is realistic for you (the amount of sessions needed).
Contact between appointments
Communication about practical matters such as appointments, insurance, payment, etc. can be done by e-mail or sms. Other topics related to the therapy itself are usually best addressed during the therapy hour.
This is a very important part of the therapy process. Therefore, I strongly recommend you bring it up in therapy when you are considering terminating.
Addiction / abuse of substances
If you have a high consumption or active abuse of alcohol, hash, pills, drugs, sex, porn, food or anything else while in therapy, this can counteract the effect of therapy. So please inform me about it. Please also tell me if you take any psychiatric drugs.
As a licensed psychologist, I am subject to the profession’s complaints procedure. Any complaints about me should be addressed to: The Psychology Board (Psykolognævnet). Holmens Kanal 22. 1060 Copenhagen K. Phone: 45.33411200
