Indvandringsterapi

​Indvandringssorg er ikke ofte anerkendt, men det er en meget normal oplevelse, når man flytter til et andet land. Når man begynder et nyt liv i et nyt land, er målet at integrere sig i værtskulturen så hurtigt som muligt.  Men en del af integrationen i et nyt land indebærer også, at man lukker et vigtigt kapitel i sit liv. Jeg kan hjælpe dig med at forstå og arbejde dig igennem denne integrationsproces bedre.

Hvad er indvandringssorg?

Indvandringssorg er en form for sorg over det land og den kultur, du kommer fra. Uanset om du forlod dit hjemland af økonomiske årsager, for at få en mere lovende fremtid, på grund af krig, uddannelse eller ægteskab, er denne proces den samme for alle. 

​Det normale menneskelige ønske indebærer at etablere et nyt liv for dig selv og din familie i værtslandet, men den konfronterende virkelighed kan bringe følelser af tristhed, ensomhed og dyb smerte frem, der ligner sorglignende symptomer. Flytning til et nyt land medfører en følelse af tab og reaktioner, der overlapper med sorg.

Hvad er processen i denne form for sorg?

Der er to typer tab: fysiske tab, som f.eks. tab af en elsket person, og symbolske tab, som henviser til abstrakte tab, f.eks. tab af hjemland, sociale omgivelser, status, ego og social identitet, som er det, indvandrere ofte oplever.

Tab af disse ting vil fremkalde sorgfaserne, som er:

  • Afvisning. Du er ikke i stand til at acceptere din virkelighed, undgår følelser eller tanker om tab. Følelser af følelsesløshed og løsrivelse fra omgivelserne. Resulterer i mere søvn, tvangstanker og tvangsmæssig adfærd.

  • Vrede. Følelser af fjendtlighed og vrede rettet mod dig selv eller andre. Omstændigheder er uretfærdige og måske spørger man "Hvorfor mig?" Eller "Hvad har jeg gjort for at fortjene dette?". Med pludselige vredesudbrud til følge.

  • Forhandlinger. At forhandle for at undgå tab ved at love sig selv, at man ikke bliver vred mere, hvis situationen ændrer sig. Kortvarig fase, da man indser, at det ikke hjælper at forhandle.

  • Depression. Oplever overvældende følelser af håbløshed, hjælpeløshed og tristhed. Løbende gråd over tab og følelser af at være isoleret. Mulighed for at opleve træthed eller koncentrationsbesvær, ændring af appetit og søvnmønstre. Dette kan vare ved i lang tid.

  • Accept. At affinde sig med ændrede omstændigheder. Anerkendelse af det oplevede tab og evnen til at forfølge nye muligheder. Holdning og forventninger har ændret sig. Genvundet følelse af kontrol over dit liv og ny følelse af håb om din fremtid.

Hvordan virker terapi i forbindelse med indvandringssorg?

Denne form for terapi fungerer ved at anvende "Acceptance and Commitment therapy" på sorgen over tabet af dit hjemland. Ofte tales der ikke om dette eller det ignoreres simpelthen. Men hvis sorgen er uløst, eller hvis der er en længerevarende sorgperiode, opstår der en indre kamp, som kan føre til langvarige deprimerede følelser. Med andre ord går man ikke gennem sorgens faser, men man sidder fast på en af faserne i processen. Denne proces kan tage tid at forstå og gennemleve, Hvis du oplever at sidde fast i et af disse stadier og ønsker en ny måde at overvinde følelsen af tab fra dit hjemland effektivt på, så er jeg i stand til at støtte dig gennem hele din Integration til Danmark.

“ Jonathan is a wonderful person, I could feel it from the moment he walked in to the room. He is a very open minded spirit and connected easily with me through his empathy. It is obvious he cares for his patients and gives 110% in the sessions. I recommend Jonathan to anyone who is ready to get to know himself/herself better and work on achieving a better emotional balance.”


​Constantin

“I started going to Jonathan’s a couple of months ago. Wauw. I am so so happy with him and the therapy. In a very short time we dived into some deep issues I had, but in a very natural and calm way, and have since worked on specific things inside of myself. And I am BLOWN away by the improvement of my mental health. The tools and conversations are easy to digest, and very effective. Jonathan is a person you feel calm being around, and his way of listening, understanding and communicating is second to none. I’m so happy I started going there, and I know that I’ll continue for a long time. I can’t recommend Jonathan enough!”


Kevin

“I have been very happy recieving therapy from ACT of living. It have been the most helpful. Even though you can't expect it I have left every session with a new understanding of my world, -I would dare call it an epiphany. Jonathan has been very skilled in helping me resolve my problems and I feel as I am in a new better place now after my sessions. I would highly recommend him:)”


Olivia

“To everyone out there, my therapy session with Jonathan has helped me a lot to become more authentic every single day. I didn't know that I need help to become more authentic and accept myself the way I'm regardless where I live, my inner critic or other external expectation. It's tough especially when I'm living abroad, (in my case) changing countries every 4 years, so I had to adapt to new environment while getting to know who I am and my contribution in this world. Jonathan has helped me a lot to notice my authentic self and to show up everyday as her! It's indeed a live changing service that he provides.”

“Just as i have told Johnatan, when i talk to my friends and family about my issues, they give me their opinions and come up with specific solutions to my problems, however during therapy i learn to understand my feelings and work with my emotions, something i have never done before and as it turns out is extremely important. I become more and more in peace with the fact that all i feel and experience is a part of my journey and my feelings are not only human and okay but also valid.I can absolutely recommend Johnatan as a great therapist to everyone! I have come a long way and made a huge progress but i know that there is always room for improvement and that is why i will continue my sessions.”


​Michalina

“Hey. I had the pleasure to have five sessions with Jonathan. They went great. He is a great listener and greatly focused on helping. He kept me in my safe bubble and gave me good tools to be working with, which is awesome. Thank you, Jonathan. I would definitely recommend him, to anyone struggling!”


Petko

“First i would like to thank you Jonathan for Your patience, kindness and specially ears. As one of the people that you are always a ladder and shoulder to others it is very difficult to get ears to listen to you, and you have actually not only listened but also made me going back to align myself. It has been a wonderful experience and enthusiastic. Jonathan, thanks for putting your heart into what you do!”


Helena

“Jonathan and I had 13 sessions together and from the very first session I felt the warmth of his personality. I could tell that he genuinely wanted to help me in my journey of trying to understand myself better, and he most certainly did. I always entered a space where I felt safe sharing my thoughts and feelings, and he was always very present with me in that space. Sitting with someone who you feel wants to help you, felt healing in itself. That’s what I think is the most amazing thing about Jonathan; he comes from a very genuine and loving place.”


Kuldip

“I came to Jonathan in a very difficult time. I was deep in depression and anxiety which made me more or less feel helpless. To say it clear I was on the verge of giving up. But I didn’t want that feeling to take over my life, so I made a choice of wanting change and for that I needed help. I reached out to Jonathan and booked my first session. It was a really difficult session for me because it meant that I needed to face the reality of the situation I was in which was very scary. It ended in a very emotionel and honest session, and Jonathan made me feel safe to open up and actually listened to what I had to say. It made me feel like there was hope for a better future for me, and I had not felt that for a very long time. 


Maninder

"I started working with Jonathan a few months ago and can say he has truly helped me change my way of life. During a depressive episode I reached out to him for help and have found myself coming out of it and reframing my view on life with his help. he approach is warm and gentle but firm. He has deep understanding of compassion that helps you find compassion for yourself. Our session can be intense but I always leave feeling better, having a real understanding of myself, and with tools to use. I recommend Jonathan highly to anyone that is looking for a caring therapist who goes the extra mile. 

I have looked for therapy since moving to Europe. Jonathan is the therapist for me, for sure."


​Dominque

"Jonathan has helped me now for about 3 months. I came to him struggling with stress, and on the brink of falling back into a deep depression. He helped me focus on rediscovering my personal values and, through that process, let go of the emotional baggage that contributed to my issues (some of which I had been holding for years).

With his help, I have managed to open up to the values that truly drive me as a person. And, most importantly, Jonathan guided me with a lot of skill and compassion in starting to live those values in all aspects of my life. I highly recommend him. He has helped me much more than a few words in a review can say. He has really helped me let go of the negative forces in my life and open up to a future full of positive energy and hope."


​Greg

"I approached Jonathan for support with anxiety and panic attacks. Jonathan is a very warm, calm and empathetic person and an incredibly inspiring presence to work with. His consultation has provided such a positive benefit in my life, and given me so much more confidence in my self. I can’t recommend Jonathan highly enough for anyone seeking personal help."


Clinton

"I can’t recommend Jonathan enough. His approach really opened my eyes to a lot of constructs I built up in my mind that were weighing me down for too long and causing me a lot of pain. I was pleasantly surprised that he brought his own individual style into psychotherapy and that made me feel much more heard and understood.


I never thought therapy would help me so much and I can advise anyone reading this to just go for it.
