“I really feel your support! And – it is truly amazing that with so many potential challenges – distance, language, culture- you truly understand my emotions. Just goes to show that in the end – even with all the labels we humans put on one another, we are more alike than we think. It also shows that you were put on this earth to be doing what you are doing.”

Her speciality is individual and couples therapy. Her kind of approach is helpful in meeting different needs and useable in the individual life of a human being, but also in all of the closest relationships and in re-bonding and integrating differences in the the variety of human beings.

It can put a strain on you to make a relationship work. But luckily help is at hand. For example, in this book by psychotherapist Gitte Sander. She has many years of experience with couples therapy and makes her extensive insight available in the book. Both by means of a wide range of practical examples, and be means of descriptions of the underlying psychological mechanisms. Both parts are important. We need the examples to recognize ourselves. And we need the theory to understand our reactions. Because we just really want to: Live in a dynamic, loving and meaningful relationship. It only takes a helping hand sometimes. And I can recommend using the one that Gitte Sander offers.
