Expat Life in Odense, Denmark
The Good Expat Life with psychotherapist Henriette Johnsen
After living several years in London, Henriette Johnsen moved back to Odense in 2015. She has established the clinic “The Good Expat Life” here in Odense, where she specializes in expat life issues.
In the first part of this podcast, Henriette talks about her work as a psychotherapist and how she supports the expat community in Odense and the surrounding areas through her practice. She also talks about expat life in Denmark in general, from the perspective of psychotherapy.
While we were producing this podcast, the corona crisis broke out, and Denmark started to close down to beat the virus. We decided to meet online and record an additional interview about how to cope with the social isolation during COVID-19.
In the second part of the podcast, which starts at 30:15, Henriette talks about consequences of social isolation and she explains how the body reacts to fear and anxiety. She also explains how to deal with anxiety, and she shares general coping strategies for how to get through the social isolation period of COVID-19.
For more information about Henriette Johnsen, her practice, and how to cope with social isolation during COVID-19 from an expat perspective, please see Henriette Johnsen’s website The Good Expat Life.
