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.

General Guidelines and Intake information
I practice in accordance with the ethical principles of Nordic Psychologists.
The content of our sessions is confidential unless I have your written consent to disclose to a third party the details of your therapy. My supervisors and accountant are also bound by confidentiality.
If you are suicidal or pose a threat to another person I might have to break my confidentiality to inform the authorities. You would be notified if this might happen.
As a licensed psychologist, I am bound by law to keep records of your therapy sessions for at least 5 years.
Your personal data is handled safely by me and are kept in a locked safe at the office. Your data is not used for any commercial purpose. I collect only what I need in order to identify you and are collected for the practice of psychotherapy by me.
Text messages and e-mails are erased as soon as possible and only kept for specific purposes for instance for guidelines from insurance companies.
As a psychologist I refrain from non-professional contact with clients. Sexual or intimate relationships are not allowed.
If you have a complaint against me, please contact: Psykolognævnet. Holmens Kanal 22. 1060 København K. Telefon: 33411200
Please give at least 48 hours notice if you need to cancel your appointment or I will have to charge for the hour.
Cancellations or changes of appointments must be made by phone or text message (not e-mail or letter). It is your responsibility to know when your appointment is.
To ensure continuity in your therapy process, please attempt to keep your appointments when possible.
Reminder text message
I send out reminder text messages about your appointment the day before. I does not mention the kind of appointment. If you do not wish to receive this please let me know.
If you are delayed, please call or text me to let me know when you expect to arrive.
The course of therapy
I recommend 1-3 appointments a month depending on your issues. Booking 2 appointments ahead ensures that you get the appointments you need.
In the therapy session you can expect my full attention and acceptance and if you have any concerns or doubts, please let me know. Its a good idea to know beforehand what you want to talk about or work on during the session. Usually 1-2 issues per session.
At times therapy can worsen your symptoms as old feelings and hidden issues might surface. Please talk with me about this should this happen to you.
Any reaction to your therapy or to me can be worked on during the course of therapy and it is always a good idea to bring this up.
Contact between appointments
I do not recommend contact between appointments to discuss anything related to your therapy. However contact about scheduling or other administrative concerns are ok. If you have a need to be in contact between appointments please discuss this with me.
You can terminate or take a break from therapy whenever you wish. It is a good idea to mention this during the therapy hour, so the therapy process can be wrapped up.
Since resistance can also emerge as a desire to terminate therapy, I recommend that you do not terminate therapy by e-mail, phone or text message. Please let me know of your wish to discontinue therapy, so I can give your space to a new client.
When I feel that you are ready to terminate therapy, I will discuss this with you.
Addiction and substance abuse
If you use/abuse large amounts of alcohol, marijuana, pills, drugs, sex, porn, food or substances while in therapy, you should know that this can reduce the effectiveness of therapy and therapy may not work. It is important that you inform me of any use/abuse, so this can be taken this into account during therapy.
