Respite services

My office is in Grünerløkka, but can also meet on tour, online or by phone. 

Pustepause offers gestalt as an effective way to comebetter in touch with themselves and those around them, relationships with others, and deeper values in life.

A picture says 1000 words - a video...

A bunch of videos to say a little about how I work. If you would rather read, I have a number of articles published in peer-reviewed journals and a novel that could be a good gift for yourself or others you want to think about ;-)
