Anbefaling af psykolog i Aarhus til behandling af lav selvtillid
Behandling af lav selvtillid ... En tidligere klient anbefaler (engelsk):
"I am an expat engineer, 31 years old, having lived in Denmark for around 8 years. Having had struggled with low self-esteem for years, I noticed that it was increasingly affecting my life to the point where it was difficult to have a positive outlook on my future.
My focus was constantly on avoiding embarrassment or failing in any way, as well in my private life as in my work life. Despite having a couple of really good friends and colleagues here, I often felt lonely or somehow isolated, like my existence here was not well-grounded. Knowing that I wanted to stay, I was worried that I would be hung up on these thoughts. And I did not want the thought of being different or somehow inadequate to be a constant presence in my mind, preventing me from trying out new things, ending in total social withdrawal.
I was glad to find Berit, as she not only had experience in the areas I found relevant but also in treating expats. During our sessions, Berit showed genuine empathy towards my experience and made sure that I got to express my thoughts and feelings as well as I needed. We always agreed on a goal for each session and points to focus on. I found it useful to get a bit of homework after each session, too, something to focus on or try out, which helped me stay engaged in the therapy, have a sense of control, and see clear progress.
She was very good at illustrating and explaining why certain thought patterns are more prevalent, and what can be done in order to change some of these patterns. It helped me tremendously that she had a more practical approach to therapy, with clear examples of how I could practice mindfulness, and what can I do when I am having a tough time.
Berit has also pointed out what are aspects of my daily experience I cannot change, and what are some of the practices that can help to keep my focus on things I have control over. Throughout our sessions, I felt safe, understood, and in good hands. Berit has been friendly and compassionate, genuinely engaged in helping me be able to handle challenging times.
I will recommend Berit to any of my friends or colleagues, should I hear they need a therapist."
