I am a 27 year old girl living in Norway where I work as a psychologist. On my free time I love to read, travel, be with people and experience new things. I Also like taking photos and doing creative work, like scrapbooking and decoupage. My personality? For those of you who know the BIG 5 personality test, I am high on Openness, Conscientiousness, middle agreeable and between intro and extraversion. It basically means that I like to do things, am a flexible person, work for my goals, usually don`t make a fuss and love to be with others, while also needing to be by myself to think and learn. I also want to add that I love the Italian language, my family, Haruki murakami, good music and my friends. I am VERY emotional, but calm when I have to be. Earlier I had a strong to put others first, and not believe I was worthy of any attention,
This blog is a blend of my personal story (called narrative or the sound of..), psychology, thoughts and just random things I find interesting.
I work daily as a clinical psychologist, and most of my clients have been abused and neglected in heartbreaking ways. For that reason many of my post will cover subjects related to trauma and dissociation. I am quite open and honest in my posts, because I believe it might help others to make us psychologist less mysterious.
Most of the psychologist I know are kind, intelligent people. Some with their own stories, but all with a genuine interest toward others. In this blog I want to share what I know about overcoming challenges, following your dreams and how to live a good life.
Since more and more people have started to read this blog, I unfortunately found it necessary to password protect some of my more personal posts. I still am very open to sharing, so if you want to read them, feel free to contact me at
I am also on twitter (@ninjafighter), instagram (nin_eri) and facebook (search for Nina ErHer) if you want to connect with me.
Also check my other blog and new project (I always have some project where I try to help others) http://forfreepsychology.wordpress.com.
I started the blog some months ago, and it has grown so fast I almost can`t believe it. I am really proud of it already, mostly because I have connected with a lot of inspiring people thorough it. The blog focus on every psychology-related subjects, and I have also invited other guest bloggers to share their stories or knowledge about psychology.
I am always open to invite more bloggers to contribute to the site, so feel free to contact me at any time if you like to write about topics relevant for the blog.
I want to thank all my readers and offer some encouragement to everyone who suffers or have done so in the past. I have myself been in the deepest valleys, and felt emotional pain so intense that I was afraid of it. I hope this blog might prove that the fight for a better life is truly worth it. And if you think: “Yeah, that`s easy for you to say, you are a psychologist” I still humbly ask you to give reading some of my posts a honest chance.
I appreciate every comment and feedback.
