about me

do you also wear a lot of "hats"?


Most of us wear many different "hats" every day; At home, there are often more than one kind - for example, you can be both a father and a spouse. At work, you might be both an employee and a leader. 

And in social contexts, family life, and during leisure time, there are even more roles. If you change direction in life, either personally - such as through divorce - or professionally, you put on additional hats.

My own career has taken me through both the private job market, the public sector, and self-employment - and throughout my life, I've stumbled over my own hats due to stress, from running too fast, both figuratively and literally, and experiencing accidents and incidents, and fractures, and so on.

After an evaluation and then diagnosis as a chronic pain patient, and with the Chief Physician at the Pain Clinic at the University Hospital having only epilepsy medication or mindfulness to choose from, I chose mindfulness, and it was life-changing. 

I subsequently changed my life completely, I am completely out of the treatment system and am no longer a chronic pain patient. I have also figured it out now: In my view, a healthy cycle determines your well-being and balance, no matter where you are in life.

For example, I am Mette first, then a mother, and then work comes. In that order; If I am not Mette first and do the things that are right and important to me, I cannot be the mother I want to be for my two boys. My work is important because it helps make me Mette, and therefore the cycle works together.

I prioritize my time and energy relentlessly. It hasn't always been this way. Like many others, I have suffered from "accommodation inflammation" and made myself available for and tried to live up to many peoples' expectations and many things expected. But the cycle now works because I take my own medicine and use my own tools.

I still wear many hats every day. You surely do too. You must not stumble over them.

Since my start in 2014, my main area has been to help people who have stumbled due to stress and anxiety to come to the surface so they could breathe. 

With more than 5,000 individual conversations and almost the same themes in the chair every day, I have now set myself a new goal:

Fewer people should be helped just to be able to breathe. More should instead fly freely.

That's why I have, among other things, written the critically acclaimed stress book, "The Frog in the Pot," created the course "Stress Help 2.0," and the Mini-Course in Anxiety.

My mission is to help as many people as possible get hold of the good life. Less won't do.

"Look around and choose your own ground"

(From Breathe, Dark side of the moon, Pink Floyd)

My business is called Neomenia, which means New Moon. The new moon is symbolically speaking where you gather yourself, get to the core, and gain insight into and overview of your:

⭐️values, desires, and goals

⭐️direction for your life

Because it's from here that you:

⭐️start new projects

⭐️set new levels of success

⭐️set your new intentions in motion

This is what I help both people, companies, and people in companies with this.​

If you do as you've always done, you'll end up where you're headed:

I help discover the mental autopilot that most of us are on, and the roadblocks that block the good life - and I have the tools to set the course for the new destination and get there safely - without stress.

this is how i help you:​

​Stress Treatment

I assist individuals, employees, and self-employed individuals who are experiencing early signs of stress, are concerned about whether they have it, or have already been deeply affected by stress. My approach considers both the physical and mental aspects and delivers effective results from the very first session.

Stress Prevention

I deliver presentations, lectures, workshops, and training on stress and prevention in both private and public companies, networks, associations, and interest groups. Stress and evidence-based knowledge about it can be effectively communicated in a language that everyone can understand, and I have found the right connection point for that.

Personal Development

I help individuals recognize the gold in their lives and shed light on how they can create more of it. I also assist in removing the weeds, allowing the root system of important aspects to grow stronger.

Talks and workshops

I give talks and do workshops on Stress - Stress prevention - Inner leadership - Empathy - Psychological safety - Mindfulness - Compassion - Communication and The good (work)life. I do this both in Denmark and abroad, in Danish, English and French. 

Supervision and Coaching

I provide supervision for individuals working in helping professions, ensuring that they maintain their own balance and have the energy to support others.

I coach owner-managers, leaders, entrepreneurs, and more, helping them develop a better understanding of themselves. This enables them to prioritize their time effectively, motivate and inspire their employees, and find the right solutions for both themselves and their businesses.


I introduce mindfulness practices to public institutions and private companies. I offer eight-week programs that teach individuals practical tools to enhance well-being and resilience in their daily lives.
