[Swedish version here.]
I feel strongly that the methods and substance of philosophy can be of great use in everyday life. I therefore try to share the philosophy that I know with anyone who is sincerely interested.
One way to do so is through philosophical counseling – an method of dialogue that is sometimes viewed as competing with therapy, sometimes as coaching or guided self-exploration, without therapeutic aims. I am educated by the Norwegian association of philosophical counseling* and offer private sessions by agreement.
I also enjoy leading philosophical discussions in groups. In my many public seminars over the years, as well as in my many years of teaching philosophy at various universities, I strive to facilitate joint investigation and mutual understanding. I also have professional experience facilitating group discussion more generally – feel free to contact me with ideas.
*The Norwegian programme in philosophical counseling (filosofisk praksis) includes 8 weekends of lectures and seminars, 50 practice sessions with fellow students, 10 sessions of counseling with an experienced councilor and 15 sessions of counseling with a volunteer under the supervision of an experienced councilor.
