About my work

As an Educational Psychological Consultant specialising in Multi-Cultural Communication, Creative Intelligence and Business Storytelling with a Master’s Degree (MA) from Aarhus University, Denmark, I can help you bring your storytelling skills to the next level. My work revolves around creativity, culture, and education because authentic and explorative storytelling is essential for a strong sense of identity and our collective human journey forward. I am passionate about helping people find their unique voice and empowering them with the tools they need to create inspiring, complex, authentic, and educative conversations that foster positive change.

My expertise in creative business storytelling enables me to teach and mentor creatives, leaders and entrepreneurs at all levels. Whether you're looking to expand your existing skills or create a sustainable business for an international and multi-cultural audience, I can help.

Through my teaching and mentoring, I focus on the power of storytelling to connect people across cultures and backgrounds. I know that stories have the ability to break down barriers and create understanding, which is why it is such a crucial component in all levels of business communication. With my guidance, you will learn how to craft stories that resonate with your audience, build authentic connections, and ultimately drive positive change.

My approach to teaching is highly personalised, tailored to the unique needs and goals of each individual or team. Whether you prefer one-on-one coaching, group workshops, or online courses, I am committed to providing a supportive and collaborative learning environment that empowers you to achieve your full potential. By the end of our time together, you will have the skills and confidence to create truly connecting, educative, and authenthic stories, that will inspire and uplift your audience. 

My educational background

I was born in Denmark, Europe, but reside in the sunny Australia. My extensive travels have taken me all around the world, but particularly to the USA, where I spent an empowering year at my Senior High School in Kansas. Yes, I am a proud Chief girl. Later, I moved to New Mexico, where I studied ‘Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution’ at the Nizhoni Institute under the visionary Chris Griscom. Her visionary approach to education and psychology were particularly impactful and opened my eyes to new ways of thinking about conflict, communication, psychology, history and identity. This experience inspired me to pursue a career in education, where I could help others develop the skills, they need to navigate a complex and ever-changing world.

 

After returning to Denmark, I obtained my Bachelor Degree (BA) in Social Education, with a focus on creative and multiple-intelligence, attachments, and communication. As a result, I visited Florence, Italy, several times to study their Reggio Emilia art education institutions, which focuses on multiple-intelligence learning methods. Lastly, I pursued my Master’s Degree (MA) in Educational Psychology from Aarhus University, with a focus on Social Constructionism, Neuro psychology, and the role of Positive Psychology and empathy in Leadership..

My diverse cultural background

My diverse cultural background and worldwide travel experiences have given me a unique perspective on the world. Through my travels, I have learned to appreciate different cultures, customs, and ways of life, which helped shape who I am today. Growing up in a culturally diverse environment was a blessing, as it opened me up to a rich tapestry of cultures and their unique forms of storytelling. I am grateful for the generosity of their love, inclusion, and friendship, as I am a product of all these beautiful cultures. If you approach others as a friend, you'll discover that the whole world is your friend. To me, a stranger is merely a friend I haven't met yet.

Overall, I am grateful for my diverse educational background and travel experiences. They have taught me invaluable lessons about the world and myself, and have inspired me to pursue a career in education that is both meaningful, empowering, life changing and fulfilling.

I believe that the arts are a powerful medium for expressing our shared experiences and bridging cultural divides. This is why I am passionate about writing and promoting professional storytelling that celebrates diversity and promotes education.

As I continue to explore the world and its many cultures, I am constantly inspired to create and share my stories with others. Whether it's through my writing or my interactions with people from different backgrounds, I hope to leave a positive impact on the world and help promote a more inclusive and compassionate society.

From Book to Blog - to my new book in writing

My debut book, "The Hidden Camino: A Spiritual Journey into the Heart of the Pilgrimage, Where Nothing is as it First Seem", was chosen for the prestigious Byron Bay Writers Festival in Australia where it became a bestseller. The positive reception from my readers worldwide led to the creation of my highly popular blog about women's position history and the behind-the-scenes process of my 30+ years of research in the field.

My research focuses on exploring the role of women in European history, utilizing narrative psychology and social constructionism as the foundation. To supplement my findings, I embarked on extensive travel off the beaten path throughout Europe.

And now, the journey continues as I delve deeper into the mystical connection between history, identity, psychology, and storytelling. The pages of my second book offer a glimpse of an empowered past, guiding us towards a future of connectivity, peace and empowerment.
