about me

do you also wear a lot of caps?


Most of us wear many different "caps" every day. At home, there is often more than one kind - for example, you can be a father, a spouse, and a stepfather all at once. At work, you might be both an employee and a manager. And in social settings, family life, and free time, there are even more roles.

If you change direction in life, whether privately - like a divorce - or professionally, you put on additional caps.

My own professional life has taken me through the private job market, the public sector, and most recently, self-employment. Along the way, I have stumbled over my own caps due to stress because I have been running too fast, also physically, and have had accidents and mishaps and fractures, etc.

After an diagnosis as a chronic pain patient, and when the chief physician at the Pain Clinic at OUH (Odense University Hospital) only had epilepsy medication or Mindfulness to choose from, I chose Mindfulness, and it was life-changing.

I subsequently changed my life, completely exited the treatment system, and no longer consider myself a chronic pain patient. I have also figured it out now:

In my opinion, a healthy cycle determines your well-being and balance, regardless of where you are in life.

For example, I am Mette, a mother, and a business owner. 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 business is important because it contributes to making me Mette, and that's why the cycle is connected.

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

I still wear many caps every day. You surely do too. Don't stumble over them.

Since the start of my business in 2014, my main focus has been to help people who have stumbled due to stress and anxiety, to resurface so they can breathe again.

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

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

That's why I have, among other things, written the critically acclaimed stress book, "The Frog in the Pot," and do talks and workshops both in Denmark and abroad.

My mission is to help as many people as possible to get their hands on the good life. Anything less won't do. Period.


​I have been a huge Pink Floyd fan since I was around 14-15 years old. "Dark Side of the Moon" is one of my favorite albums, and it was released the same year as me (1973).

The moon is completely dark during the new moon phase.

Symbolically, the new moon represents a time when we gather within ourselves, come to the core, and gain insight and overview of:

⭐️ Values, desires, and goals 

⭐️ Direction for our lives

It is from this point that we:

⭐️ Start new projects 

⭐️ Set new levels of success 

⭐️ Set our new intentions in motion

That's what I help individuals, businesses, and people within organizations with. 

That's why my company name is Neomenia, which means new moon.

"Look around and choose your own ground." Breathe, Pink Floyd

If we keep doing what we've always done, we'll end up where we're heading:

I help discover the autopilot mode that most of us operate on and identify the roadblocks that hinder the good life. 

I have the tools to set the course for a new destination and reach it smoothly, 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.

what you can expect of me:

You will experience me as a consultant, coach, speaker, teacher, supervisor, and therapist with:

  • Good listening skills, an approachable demeanor, and a twinkle in my eye.
  • A heart and intuition at the forefront of my work.
  • Curiosity about your challenges without hesitation.
  • A genuine desire to share knowledge and tools.
  • A strong professional foundation that is conveyed in an accessible and understandable manner.

I make active use of the newer, evidence-based approaches within Cognitive therapy, namely Mindfulness, Compassion Focused Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

In coaching, stress prevention, consulting, supervision and therapy, I interchangeably use these tools from my toolbox based on your personal or your company's needs. This approach ensures the best results. I have a wide range of clients and tasks:
