Meeting Rikke – as an ACT trainer and a supervisor – was a life-chaniging experience. She empowered me to take many bold steps toward more fulfilling professional and private life. She is also an excellent role mode for me, I am forever inspired by her truly experiential approach in teaching ACT and FAP, her deep understanding of behavioral processes, her authenticity and her widely open heart.

Attending Rikke’s workshops challenged my previous assumptions and bias around vulnerability and compassion (that I didn’t even realise I held). It helped me see the common humanity and the beauty in vulnerability, as well as the strength in it. Thus I no longer fear vulnerability, and I can see that you can be vulnerable and be an absolute badass. I can also see that some beautiful and amazing connections are born out of a vulnerable space, and i am more open to walking into that uncomfortable space in order to create those connections. Rikke’s workshops were some of the most moving ones I have attended, and have been instrumental in me making shifts in both my professional and personal life. Inspirational.
Amongst many trainers teaching how to live a kind, open-hearted life, Rikke stands out as a gem. Her presence radiates with compassionate warmth and pure authenticity. Most importantly, she’s very gifted in teaching mental health professionals how to become safe harbors for their clients. If you want to be more skillful, flexible and process-oriented in your work, Rikke’s workshops are the option to choose.

Rikke has given me the kind of space I want for myself and for those whom I serve. I highly recommend anyone who is interested. Rikke is compassionate and caring. Her skill at being with the feelings of others escapes description. Rikke responds compassionately and empathically to emotions. If you’re having a hard time expressing vulnerable emotions Rikke provides a great space open for this experience and she is very graceful at modeling compassionate responses.
