“Being authentic and true to yourself”

During several years in Denmark I organized and participated in therapist trainings. With 25 participants in each course and up to 10 different nationalities in the room, I developed my leadership qualities and my ability to quickly adapt to the demands of the moment and provide constructive feedback. I also understood the importance of self-awareness, communication and to be present in the here and now.

As a consultant, I contribute with my leadership experience and ability to work in teams, from my time as a Navy Officer. I have experience in working with many different executive levels simultaneously and have learned from my time as a sales director in the IT industry to quickly prioritize the essentials and work consistently towards a goal.

As a person, I have traveled extensively both in the interior and the exterior world. My spiritual search has taken me to many different places around the globe which has given me respect and an understanding of other people and cultures.

Between 2006 and 2009, I trained in trauma-resolution therapy and organizational development in England. I have good experience in working with and counselling people who find themselves in challenging situations. My work is characterized by reflective conversations and being in the moment, improving the ability to be aware of the present situation and to take appropriate action. I enjoy and actively encourage the yin and yang in a human being, strategy and spirituality, humor and business. Being authentic and finding your true self is what it’s all about.
