Bjørg has a client centered approach and believes that we are all unique individuals with different backgrounds, perspectives, values, strengths and coping strategies. This is taken into consideration, so that the sessions will be tailored to each client.
Importance is put on the therapeutic alliance, creating a safe and non-judgmental environment in sessions. Clients of all cultures, values, beliefs and sexual orientations are welcome and equally cared for.
The main therapy modalities used are Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Narrative Therapy, Applied Positive Psychology, and SFBT. Counselling is offered for a wide range of issues, including: anxiety, phobias, depression, anger management, interpersonal issues, and trauma. In addition Bjørg offers counselling for transition, grief and loss, with special interest in helping people affected by chronic health issues and other life changing experiences.
