Lene Bisgaard, M.S.

I have recently returned to Denmark after living and working overseas for several decades.

I have a Master's degree in psychological counseling from Monash University in Australia, and I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I have trained in the Gottman Couples Therapy approach (read more about how we do couples therapy here), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy(ACT) and I am also a Certified Tension, Stress and Trauma Release (TRE) practitioner. Before coming back to Denmark I worked at a counseling center in Hong Kong for 4 years as a full time psychotherapist.

How I work

As an integrative psychotherapist, I draw on different approaches to therapy, as I respond to you and your needs. I try to combine warmth with challenge and strive to create a trusting therapeutic relationship where open dialogue feels possible and where, through collaboration, you can feel empowered to navigate change so that you can live a life that is meaningful to you. Moreover, I take into consideration cross-cultural aspects, such a culture-bound values, habits, and expectations, as they are often an intrinsic part of how we experience ourselves in the culture we inhabit.

I have worked with a broad range of issues including anxiety, depression, anger management, marriage and relationship problems, self-esteem, challenging life events, adjustments to loss, and personal development, as well as stress and work related difficulties.
