Hello! We are therapists Johanne Schwensen (Clinical psychologist) and Jakob Lusensky (Jungian psychoanalyst) from It's Complicated. Ask us anything about therapy!
Hello! We are therapists Johanne Schwensen (Clinical psychologist) and Jakob Lusensky (Jungian psychoanalyst), counsellor colleagues and co-founders of the therapy platform It's Complicated. Ask us anything – about therapy, life as therapists, and finding the right therapist!
Our short bio:
"Life is complicated, finding a therapist shouldn't be.” This was the founding principle when we established the project and platform It's Complicated. We wanted to make it easier to get matched with the right therapist.
I, Johanne, practice integrative therapy (combining modalities like CBT, ACT, and narrative therapy) and Jakob is a Jungian psychoanalyst. Despite our different approaches to therapy, we share the belief that the match matters the most. In other words, we think that what makes for succesful therapy isn’t a specific technique but the relationship between the client and therapist. (This, by the way, is backed by research).
That’s why, when we’re not working as therapists, we try to simplify clients' search for the right therapist through It’s Complicated.
So ask us anything – about therapy, life as therapists, and finding the right therapist.
NB! We're not able to provide any type of counselling through reddit but if you’re interested in doing therapy, you can contact us or one of the counsellors listed on www.complicated.life.

Thank you again all for asking such interesting questions! We have continued to reply the last two days but unfortunately, now need to stop. We're sorry if your question wasn't answered. We hope to be able to offer another AMA further on, perhaps with some other therapists from It's Complicated.
If you have any further questions, contact us through our profiles on the platform (see links above).
