About Lene Bak

Welcome! I am Lene Bak, and I am the one who will take care of you when you start therapy. I know starting therapy can be a difficult decision to make. Perhaps you have questions or doubts. Maybe you are unsure of what you need or who to choose.

You are always welcome to call me. No strings attached. And it’s free.


Am I the right therapist for you?

To get the most out of therapy you have to feel safe and in good hands when working with your therapist.

Some people talk of the right chemistry. Others say that they need a certain gut feeling to know that our connection is right.

Therapy is about trust and you have to be true to yourself when deciding if I am the right therapist for you. Some people know for sure after a short talk on the phone. Others need one or two meetings to know for sure.


My experience

My clients bring many different issues, for example:

  • Identity issues due to big shifts in life
  • First-time parents – from couple to family – how do we deal with our new roles?
  • How to handle getting fired or divorced and how to find new direction in life?
  • My teenager is unhappy – how can I help?
  • My children are leaving home – who am I now?
  • Difficult relationship with siblings or parents
  • How to build self-worth?
  • How to defeat shame and guilt?
  • I have recently been diagnosed – now what?
